Sorry, folks. Despite all those rumors, Ryan Gosling won't be in the upcoming Star Wars: Episode VII. The gossip probably came from the casting breakdown which was released earlier this summer. We think that Gosling would've been great in this unidentified role: "a late twentysomething male, fit handsome and confident", rumored to be the part of Luke Skywalker's son. But what other actors would also fit that bill? Let's take a look at some big names who could fit into the new film, and some little-known actors who could also tackle the role.

Too Good for 'Star Wars', Ry Gos?

Sorry, folks. Despite all those rumors, Ryan Gosling won't be in the upcoming Star Wars: Episode VII. The gossip probably came from the casting breakdown which was released earlier this summer. We think that Gosling would've been great in this unidentified role: "a late twentysomething male, fit handsome and confident", rumored to be the part of Luke Skywalker's son. But what other actors would also fit that bill? Let's take a look at some big names who could fit into the new film, and some little-known actors who could also tackle the role.

Henry Cavill

The Man of Steel star has been passed over for a number of action-hero roles before landing the Superman gig. While he's already got one franchise in the works, we'd like to think he could make the time for the new Star Wars film.

Kevin Zegers

The star of the upcoming Mortal Instruments: City of Bones film has been working steadily for years without a major breakout role. If City of Bones isn't it, we think he could slide right in to Star Wars. Doesn't he look the part?

Ryan Reynolds

We refuse to believe that just because Ryan Reynolds can't bring in the bucks on the films he headlines doesn't mean that he wouldn't do well as part of a strong ensemble. Plus, let's not pretend that Ryan Reynolds' presence would at all effect the billions of dollars that Star Wars will clearly make.

Matt Bomer

I would put Matt Bomer in every movie if I could, let's be honest. But if Fifty Shades of Grey doesn't work out, how about the role as Luke Skywalker's son instead?

Lucas Till

The X-Men: First Class actor may not be a bonafide star like Gosling, but he kind of looks like Luke Skywalker back in the day ... unless maybe that's just his hair.

Shawn Ashmore

Sure, he's on The Following, but how long do people on that show even last, right? Plus, he's already a regular at Comic-Con.

Shia LaBeouf

Just kidding. The only movie we want to see Shia in is when ABC Family replays Holes.
