Star Wars Casting Details

twenty-something male...

Bleedingcool.com is confirming that this is 100% true. Here are the casting details for characters they are looking for Star Wars: Episode VII. They are confirming that these are indeed the lead characters that they are looking for. The casting call began today in the United Kingdom. So it begins!
 
 
 
 

Late-teen female, independent, good sense of humour, fit.

Young twenty-something male, witty and smart, fit but not traditionally good looking.

A late twentysomething male, fit, handsome and confident.

Seventy-something male, with strong opinions and tough demeanour. Also doesn’ t need to be particularly fit.

A second young female, also late teens, tough, smart and fit.

Forty something male, fit, military type.

Thirtysomething male, intellectual. Apparently doesn’t need to be fit.

Does this mean Jaina and Jacen Solo are going to be in their late teens? Will Episode VII start anew and discard all the expanded universe? Sound off below!

The seventy-something male definitely sounds like a Han Solo character.

What, no midgets? Bummer

 Are the Jaina and Jacen solo twins gonna make out as well??

They must already have the midgets cast.  ;)

I'm torn on whether or not I want them to use the expanded universe.  There is a lot of great stuff there, but that could also severely handcuff the new stories they could tell.  They will probably just pick and choose certain elements, as they see fit.  Guess I'm good with that as long as they tell a good story.

 Sounds like they can use the cast of Twilight for this

I think they should go all original. Fanboys aren't forgiving enough to allow variations from source material if they base it on the expanded universe. I'm actually surprised they are casting their net this early. Script must be further along than they are letting on.

not traditionally good looking, wth does that mean?  They are good looking but unusual looking or what?

This doesn't sound like the twins as they didn't ask for twins, but u never know.  I would think they would be more specific on hair color and stuff to make them look like H and L's babies.  But maybe not.

What if you're like 40 but you can fake late teens really well? I mean so well that high school girls want you to ask them to the prom?

What if you're sorta fit but not really? I mean you can lift a full pitcher of beer mutliple times?

What if you're confident but, uh kinda so-so in looks?

What if you aren't a military type but you've seen a helluva lot of WWII movies?

If you're a seventy year old male can you be lovably crusty or do you have to be full out "Get off my lawn, you stupid kidsI" ?

What if you are intellectual in the sense that you blog alot and figure your opinions are much more important than anybody elses?

Yeah they better start looking for cast members!!  With an early 2014 production start date that only leaves 6 months or so for these people to either get in the shape they need to be in or train with martial arts instructors or lightsabres or whatever!! 

Haha Wise, the cast of twilight is probably first in line for auditions!

uh.....fuck no.......

 So basically they're saying if you're fat, ugly, in your fifties, and of average intelligence you need not apply.
