The former star of Laguna Beach and private Nicole Scherzinger nude bedroom scenes, Talan Torriero, has his eyes set on playing sea king superhero Aquaman in the upcoming film Justice League of America. Talan tells MTV Movies:
"You know what I really am pushing for? I really want to be Aquaman in Justice League of America. It's a superhero movie, so it's probably hard to even get in there, but I really want it badly. I really want to be Aquaman so badly."

Talan Torriero says that rather than be delusional and aspire to be Johnny Depp or Jack Nicholson, he'd settle for Ryan Reynolds or Paul Walker at this point in his fledgling career. Or maybe Hairspray star Zac Efron.
"I auditioned for Link in Hairspray [on Broadway]... I love the musical, I watched all the movies and listened to the soundtrack, and it really captured me. But Broadway, it's a dream. Who doesn't want to be under the lights and sing?"
Auditions for Justice League began last month, Talan Torriero said. Recently, the aspiring actor has been linked to former troubled Miss USA Tara Conner.
Among those tryin' out: Adam Brody, Joseph Cross, D.J. Cotrona, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Michael Angarano, Teresa Palmer, Max Thieriot, rapper Common and Friday Night Lights stars Minka Kelly, Adrianne Palicki and Scott Porter.
