Are you young? Are you fit? Then you might want to think about trying out for director J.J. Abrams' Star Wars: Episode VII.
A list of character breakdowns for the J.J. Abrams-helmed continuation of the Star Wars franchise has appeared online, first reported by Bleeding Cool. Representatives from Lucasfilm confirmed their legitimacy to Entertainment Weekly. The descriptions are rather vague, but there's a common thread through almost all of them: the Star Wars team is all about fitness.
Read on for the full list:
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.
Thirtysomething male, intellectual. Apparently doesn’t need to be fit.
Is it overkill to float Benedict Cumberbatch, Tom Hiddleston and/or Michael Fassbender for the thirtysomething male? If so, consider this overkill. Star Wars: Episode VII arrives in 2015.
