    The purpose of this thread is to discuss the open casting call for Episode VII.

    If you're planning on attending, or have gone to one of the auditions and would like to share your experiences, this is the place to talk about it. It will also be the place we use to follow along with the audition process/coverage over the next couple of weeks. Here are some of the links I grabbed from the casting rumors thread to get us started:

    Disney Calls for Video Submissions to Cast Roles in ‘Star Wars Episode 7′
    Source: Variety

    Well apparently, now, anyone can submit video auditions.

    Sounds comprehensive enough that I like it, but I still feel bad for the casting people who have to go through a sudden deluge of videos from fans.

    Speaking exclusively to the Record online producer Bryan Burk said: “We were thrilled to see such a large number of excited young people at our first “meet and greet” in Bristol last weekend.
    “The magnitude of interest has meant that we need to find larger venues in all upcoming cities.
    ““We are anxious to visit Glasgow but need to reschedule our visit to the weekend of November 30 to ensure that we are able to meet as many people as possible. We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this change in date may have caused.
    “As soon as we have a new location, we will let you know immediately. We truly appreciate the enthusiasm shown for Star Wars, and can’t wait to get to Glasgow.”

    I hope they need an Italian sound loud mouth from philly. Especially one whom has grown up with terrible miserable sports teams and an even louder more combative family.
    I'd make a perfect Sith on screen.

    If they do a call for a 30-40 something male character, I might try the video call.

    Yeah . . . . :(

    This is a bit bitter/sweet. While I loved beiung able to have SW for the last 35 years and LOVE that we're getting more now in perpetuity. I'm sad that I don't have this opportunity. Of course like many others I would have LOVED to be able to at least audtion for something so wonderful. Even if I enevr got a part it will be a great thing to be able to look back and say, "Kids, I auditioned for Episode 7."

    I'm still tempted to submit something even though I don't fit what they are looking for at all :p

    I happen to fit in their age criteria (the handsome, smart and athletic part is conjectural, though, I do get a decent amount of attention from the ladies :D ), so I'm going to submit a video. I mean, what's the harm in trying, at least? I know I'll never get it, but still, it's a cool little way to support this movie.

    Do it! They're practically begging you to! :p

    BTW -- You have nothing to lose. The only ones who'll see it are the casting agents and you never know . . .

    I hear ya on this!

    But keep this in mind: There is lots of SW to come, and some of it is animated. Voice actors don't need to fit some of the elements of an on-screen role, so there is hope! I am in an animated film coming out next year with a very slight SW connection (in cast, not story) and I hope that in some way it might lead to my participating in some way to a SW production i the future.

    We shall see.......

    Here is a photo from the open casting call. I hear that she is an early favorite among the men... and some women.

    I think that is irrelevant. She is obviously an amazing actress.

    You are the internets. It is your job to know... and to inform us.

    Hmm...interesting.

    Despite being in my late 20s, I'm always being told I look to be about 16-18, so I could probably pull that off. I just don't think I have the guts to actually put something together and submit it. :p

    I am already contributing to the Star Wars universe in an official capacity through my artwork, so I'm quite content with that for the time being.

    @KnightsArchive People at the casting calls have reported being filmed by LFL.

    Leads to my opinion from a day ago. That we might see footage of the casting call on a DVD/Blu-ray of the movie in 2016.
