A Star Wars: Episode VII casting breakdown has been revealed over at Bleeding Cool and they’ve verified the following descriptions are for the film’s lead characters and they stress these descriptions are 100% confirmed.
So what’s it take to get into the new Star Wars movie? Well, for five of the seven roles you damned well better be “fit” and it never hurts to be good looking.
Late-teen female, independent, good sense of humour, fit.
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.
Thirty something male, intellectual. Apparently doesn’t need to be fit.
I couldn’t help but laugh at these descriptions because I can’t say I’ve ever described anyone in my life in a similar fashion, but I think once I review Episode VII once it’s released in 2015, I’ll save these descriptions for my review.
As a reminder, J.J. Abrams is directing with a screenplay from Michael Arndt.
