Known For: Efron became a star thanks to Disney's "High School Musical" trilogy but moved on from the franchise to establish himself as a leading man with films including "17 Again" and "The Lucky One."
In His Favor: Efron is an A-list name who's proven he's capable of anchoring a film, and in some of his later roles he's demonstrated a saucy charm that would make him a great fit for the young Solo.
Against Him: 'Tween-heartthrob reputations die hard, and the most vocal "Star Wars" fans would likely raise a big stink if he were cast.
