Bleeding Cool has the details of the casting call for Star Wars Episode VII. Even though he hasn’t announced a storyline for the movie, J.J. Abrams apparently is looking for:
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.
So let the baseless speculation commence! I’m mostly disappointed that, based on the ages here, we’re not setting ourselves up for some awesome Jedi twins training montages, or for the X-Wing series. The Corran Horn- and Jaina Solo-loving parts of my heart are aching a little.
