Casting breakdown for new Star Wars film

Casting has begun in the U.K. for the new Star Wars film and Bleedingcool.com has released a breakdown of the type of actors the casting director and producers are currently looking for, including two 20-something males and two females in their late teens. Here’s a list of what they want:

  • * Late-teen female, independent, good sense of humour, 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 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.
  • * Thirty-something male, intellectual. Apparently doesn’t need to be fit.

Nina Gold is the U.K. casting director for the project and April Webster and Alyssa Weisberg are in charge of casting in the United States. Variety suggests that the male in his 70s may be an Obi-Wan Kenobi type character. What do you think of this casting news?

    *Apparently doesnt need to be fit.
    makes the casting call sound fake, when they use wording like that.
