There has been plenty of "casting" news surrounding the upcoming Star Wars VII, with Ryan Gosling and Zac Efron being the most recent names for Ben Skywalker, so it makes sense that people are asking other actors what their hopes for the Star Wars sequel are.

In an interview with IGN, Karl Urban was asked if he would attempt to leverage his working relationship with J.J. Abrams into a role in the new Star Wars. Somewhat surprisingly, Urban replied with an immediate "No, absolutely not."

When pressed further, Urban admits that he is a huge Star Wars fan. So huge in fact that he feels it would be wrong for the Star Trek and Star Wars worlds to intermingle.

From the moment Star Wars 7 was announced, there has been speculation behind the film. Everything from the storyline, to the director, to the casting.

  • Zac Efron in Italy
  • R. Gosling Picture

This morning's buzzy casting rumor is that both Zac Efron and Ryan Gosling have their names in the hat for the upcoming Star Wars film. 

Surely this news has plenty of Star Wars fans rolling their eyes.

Seriously, Zac Efron? Nothing against the guy but Star Wars is not your typical Nicholas Sparks fare. Gosling isn't as cringe-worthy but doesn't scream "Jedi Knight" either.

Star Wars has a lot in common with Game of Thrones.

Both deal with betrayal… power… mean dictators… awkward sibling relationships.

But some of the characters from the movie may scoff at some of the characters from the TV show and vice versa, as the aforementioned themes are dealt with through various degrees of bad ass-ery across the two stories.

Courtesy of the Wars vs. Thrones subreddit, see what we mean in the following hilarious memes:

I can not tell you how many times I've seen a bird fly off into space, not hitting anything or anypig, while playing Angry Birds Star Wars and thought to myself, "man, I really wish I could miss that box of TNT while playing on this on my XBox."

Well it appears as if Rovio and Activision have heard my bitter mutterings as they are bringing Angry Birds Star Wars to all consoles, including hand-helds!

According to the press release, in addition to the levels already in the mobile game, there will be an additional 20 levels of Angry Birds Star Wars.

The dudes in Wedding Crashers have nothing on these guys.

The entire wedding party fleeing a squad of Imperial AT-AT Walkers a la The Empire Strikes Back? Probably the best idea for a wedding photo ever ...

Photographer Lisa Wiebe tried to creating a nerd-tastic chase scene for bride and groom Leslie Seiler and Paul Kingston, both diehard Star Wars fans.

Safe to say she succeeded.

Wiebe halted traffic while a horde of screaming bridesmaids and groomsmen ran for their lives down a Toronto street in order to get this shot.

Note to all air travelers: lightsabers are apparently a no-no.

Even if those lightsabers aren't real (I mean, there's no such thing as a real light saber .......... or is there?? There's not.).

Last week, Peter Mayhew, the actor who donned the Chewbacca suit in the Star Wars movies, was stopped by TSA at the Denver airport, and had his cane - which is shaped like a lightsaber - confiscated.

As most celebrities are wont to do these days, Mayhew took to Twitter, saying "@AmericanAir won't lalow [sic] me through the airport with me cane! Can I get a retweet?"

He later corrected that it was not American Airlines, but TSA that was responsible.

Michael Arndt is writing the script, which is rumored to have a female as the lead. That means that Meyers would most likely be playing a supporting role.

Happy weekend, and May the 4th be with you all!

It's Star Wars Day! Get it? May the fourth?

If any fan base were capable of hijacking a random day on the calendar and turning it into their own holiday based on a play on words, it would be Star Wars fans.

Not that you need a reason to celebrate the other 364 days, but whether you're a Jedi-level Star Wars geek or a mere padawan learner, today is a great excuse!

It's also a particularly exciting Star Wars Day, with the revival of the franchise now slated for 2015. Yes, after all this time, there will be a Star Wars Episode 7.
