Bleeding Cool posted earlier a leaked casting call for Star Wars Episode VII which includes some vague descriptions of several roles that Disney is looking to fill in the movie. Bleeding Cool’s Brendon Connelly says:
“We’ve verified that these are lead characters.”
Bleeding Cool says that they are 100% confirmed and that the open casting started today in the UK.
The Force.Net verified the leak as well, saying:
“Lucasfilm Company spokesman Miles Perkins has confirmed to me that the listing is genuine.”
In no particular order:
“Late-teen female, independent, good sense of humor, fit.
Young twenty-something male, witty and smart, fit but not traditionally good looking.
A late twenty something male, fit, handsome and confident.
Seventy-something male, with strong opinions and tough demeanor. 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.
Thirty something male, intellectual. Apparently doesn’t need to be fit.”
Only time will tell which characters these casting calls are for. But it’s nice to see some female leads, and it seems there may be something to the rumor of the children being the focus after all….
