Entertainment website Bleeding Cool today posted a leaked casting call for Star Wars Episode VII which includes vague descriptions of several roles that Disney is looking to fill in the movie. Bleeding Cool's Brendon Connelly writes, "We've verified that these are lead characters."
This was circulating earlier today, but we didn't know if it was real or another hoax. So I reached out to Lucasfilm. Company spokesman Miles Perkins has confirmed to me that the listing is genuine. He wrote, "Yes, it is correct."
Here is the casting call from the leaked document:
Late-teen female, independent, good sense of humour, fit.Once again, Lucasfilm has confirmed that this casting call is real. That means that casting is now underway. Episode VII will be an original story and probably won't draw any specifics from the EU, so the characters who match these descriptions are still a complete mystery. Stay tuned as TFN brings you the latest Star Wars Episode VII news!
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.
