Casting Call: Star Trek
There's an open casting call appeared online for J.J. Abrams Star Trek and it sounds rather intriguing, as they look for people with unusual facial features.
So if you have something unique about your face, from a long neck to an overly large forehead, you could appear in the new Star Trek film and be forever immortalised in the Trek universe.
According to the call, which comes through IESB, they are looking for:
“Especially seeking talent with interesting and unique facial features, such as: long necks, small heads, extremely large heads, wide-set eyes, bug eyes, close-set eyes, large forehead, short upper lip, pronounced cheekbones, over- or undersized ears and/or nose, facial deformities, ultra plain-looking people, ultra perfect-looking people, pure wholesome looks, twins, triplets, emaciated talent, in addition to regally poised and postured talent.
If you have a visually unique characteristic NOT outlined above, please feel free to submit your pictures.”
They have the full details on submission, but note that they are looking for athletic bodies as they are going to make you wear tight clothing as well. They are even arranging a session for you to go to and have your photo's taken, however you must arrive wearing “form fitting” clothing...oh I can see the photographers hanging around that one, so wear baggy clothes on the outside!
You know I'm trying to read something into this casting call and figure out something from the story, but genuinely I can't, can you?
