High School Musical dreamboat Zac Efron is rumored to play spacefaring hero/Freddie Mercury muse Flash Gordon. Could this all be just a disinformation campaign by Ming the Merciless?
According to Digital Spy, the fresh-faced Efron is in the running for Alex Raymond's comic strip hero. However, we're not sure how legit these rumors are given that Efron is supposedly lined up for Jonny Quest with Dwayne "Race Bannon" Johnson. Would Efron want to pigeonhole himself as the "vintage comic guy," particularly if either one of these flicks pulls a Speed Racer?
