Is Disney already jumping a shark?
Is Disney already jumping a shark?

Zac Efron on set of 'The Townies'Word is starting to come out of Hollywood as to casting for the latest Star Wars Movie “episode VII” and some web sites are reporting that former Disney Kid actor and still teen hearth throb Zack Efron is being considered for one of the lead roles. Having an eleven year old daughter I have seen Efron in s couple of things. He seems like a good enough actor and who knows, he might be the perfect choice for this role whatever it may be. But is the casting of am actor so well known for a certain type of acting really the best decision. It is a great move from Efron whom I am sure is trying to get away from his teen heart throb image but if you’re Disney and you’re trying to prove to a very loyal audience that you’re not going to ruin their beloved sci fi fantasy franchise by stunt casting, is this really the way to go about it? Hopefully this is just another rumor about this movie that has already been surrounded by them but I wouldn’t put anything past the “Giant Mouse” to force casting of one of their former kid stars.
