Casting Breakdown for Star Wars Episode 7 From Across the Pond
Got what it takes to wield The Force?
We don’t know who they’ll be playing (unless you’re really steeped in “Star Wars” everything and you can tell who these people are just from the descriptions, I mean), but we do know what they’ll mostly look like, or at the very least, what they’re SUPPOSED to look/feel/be like.
Here’s the casting breakdown that’s currently going ’round the UK at the moment (via Deadline):
A young man aged between 20 and 25, witty and smart, fit but not classically handsome,
Man in late twenties, also fit, but this one is handsome and confident.
Late teenage girl, independent, good sense of humour, also… physically fit .
Second young female, also late teens, tough, smart and physically fit.
Man in his forties, obviously physically fit, this one is a military type.
A man of around thirty or so, this one is an intellectual type.
Finally, a guy aged around seventy, strong opinions and tough.
I could totally play the first one. (Or possibly the last one…)
Abrams’ “Star Wars: Episode 7″ is set to shoot early next year in the UK for a 2015 release. Michael Ardnt is currently writing the script. My guess is, we’ll get an announcement that Abrams will end up doing all three “Star Wars” movies soon enough. Just a hunch.
