‘Star Trek’ Needs Mishapen Skinny People

ComingSoon has posted a casting call to be an extra in the new Star Trek for director J.J. Abrams, and since I don’t frequently casting calls I don’t know how often they get this strangely specific, but take a peek at the requirements:

Just imagine the group of folks they are looking for. What if all of the same kind show up and they have a bunch of long-neck, big head extremely large head skinny people… Wouldn’t that be a disaster!?!?
