Former Laguna Beach star Talan Torriero - who currently stars in the film Driftwood - wants to portray Aquaman in the upcoming film Justice League of America.
Q: By the way, your dream role surprised me. Most people pick a superhero.
A: You know what I really am pushing for? I really want to be Aquaman in Justice League... 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.
Q: Wait, what? Nobody wants to be Aquaman. He's ridiculous. Don't be silly.
A: Well I'm a pretty realistic person. People say, â€˜If you could be anyone you want right now, who would you be?' I could sit here and say, â€˜Oh, Johnny Depp or Jack Nicholson,' but is it realistic for me to say that right now? No. But I could be Ryan Reynolds or Paul Walker right now. I love Ryan Reynolds' career, I really look up to him a lot.
Q: Word on the street is that you want to be Zac Efron, as well.
A: I auditioned for Link in Hairspray [on Broadway], yeah.
