‘STAR WARS: EPISODE VII’ casting call REVEALS THREE roles. NO PORKINS GHOST WTF
An Episode Abrams casting call has revealed three roles. But there’s a problem. No Porkins. No fucking Porkins? In my mind, for my fucking money, Porkins is the most obvious Force-sensitive character in the SWU. Clearly he was never caught (not recruited, they were predators) by those Jedi pricks. However, I always sort of envisioned he’d come back as a Force ghost. Maybe Episode VIII?
[Two possible actors are] Ksenia Solo and Liam McIntyre. According to Jedi News (viaCBM) Solo is possibly up for a role in Star Wars Episode VII (as the daughter of Princess Leia and Han Solo) and McIntyre read for the role of a Jedi. These are obviously both rumors but the Black Swan actress and Spartacus actor both look the part. Read more at the source links.
Speaking of the lead roles of Star Wars Episode VII, Showbiz 411 reports a casting call for an “Untitled Studio Feature” is underway in New York City. This “Untitled” feature, though, is a Disney film directed by J.J. Abrams. Boom. They’re looking for three primary roles:
[YOUNG MAN] Early 20s. Handsome, but not necessarily heroic. He is witty and smart. Physically fit.
[MAN] Late 20s. Physically fit, handsome and confident.
[YOUNG WOMAN] Late teens. Physically fit, raw energy, independent and with a great sense of humor.
Those last two sounds like the roles Solo and McIntyre could be up for, right? Also, that original casting call had seven roles. Have four of them been cast?
I’ve had a bit of a Tumblr crush on Solo for a while. Too many gifs of her from the show Lost GIRL. So yeah, cast her. I beg you.
