The casting call for the next episode in the Star Wars franchise has widened the net to include anyone that can shoot and upload a video. That’s right, you can now submit your own audition tape to Cast It Talent for your shot at landing a role in Disney‘s Star Wars: Episode VII.
There are two roles, “Rachel” and “Thomas.” Although those names are most likely just code names for the actual characters. Here’s the character descriptions:
Seeking: Young woman to play 17-18 Years old. Must be beautiful, smart and athletic. Open to all ethnicities (including bi- and multi-racial).
RACHEL – Was quite young when she lost her parents. With no other family, she was forced to maker her way alone in a tough, dangerous town. Now 17 she has become street smart and strong. She is able to take care of herself using humor and guts to get by.
Always a survivor, never a victim, she remains hopeful that she can move away from this harsh existence to a better life. She is always thinking of what she can do to move ahead.
Seeking: Young man to play 19-23 years old. Must be handsome, smart and athletic. Must be over 18.
THOMAS – Has grown up without a father’s influence. Without the model of being a man, he doesn’t have the strongest sense of himself. Despite this, he is smart, capable and shows courage when it is needed. He can appreciate the absurdities in life and understands you can’t take life too seriously.
Does any of that sound like you? Grab a couple of friends, get your video put together, and send it to casting director, Matyellen Aviano of Cast It Talent. She’ll also be visiting some cities for those that want a face to face chance at landing one of the roles. You can get all the details using this link.
How long do you think it will take for some of these audition tapes to spread across the Internet? I’m sure we’ll see some real ones that will blow our minds as well as some pretty damn funny parodies that will crop up in the wake.
Star Wars: Episode VII is scheduled to hit theater screens December 18th, 2015.
