So they're casting for Jacen and Jaina... but they don't want to call it that?

Casting directors are on the hunt for two lead actors for the film's latest installment and are  specifically looking for a 'beautiful, smart and athletic' woman to play the part of an orphaned 17 to 18-year-old and a 'handsome, smart and athletic' man to play a capable 19 to 23-year-old.

Is that like "office hot" and not hot hot?

You know who else had rigid standards for people to be beautiful, smart, and athletic?

Mara Jade is Luke's age.

As far as 'handsome, smart, athletic, 19-23' goes, well, I may qualify for the first two, but I'm twice that age.  And even when I was younger, I was like Steve Rogers, before the super soldier serum, save for being tall.

Beautiful and athletic? Darn. Give me a call when they cast the x-wing pilots in the shape of Porkins.
 
2013-11-06 10:33:19 AM  
Oh well, one out of three isn't bad...

Wise-cracking lardos need not apply.

You know, they could just say they want "Actors like you'd see on The CW" and get it over with.

I hope they come up with better names.

Actually, I hope they drop the whole concept of the Organa-Solo children.

Not if they take the character and change the origin.

I would vote for Lizzie Armitstead (British national road race champion)... she might need to posh up her Yorkie accent.

Jessica Ennis....

What they don't tell you is that both actors will be used for Gungan motion-capture.

Yeah, she's my other British athlete crush.
 
2013-11-06 12:57:43 PM  
I'm available!  Call me when you get round to casting the son of Porkins or a Hutt - very little makeup required for that one.
 
2013-11-06 04:55:21 PM  
Damn I'm too old.

If it was still the mid 90s a 31 year old could easily be cast as a seventeen year old orphan. Even with my grey hair.

Too bad they couldn't put Ian McKlellan and Patrick Stewart in the Star Wars movies.

Let's give these decent young men a chance:
