Ansel Elgort and Beau Mirchoff Also Auditioned for Star Wars: Episode 7.

Star Wars


Young actors Ansel Elgort and Beau Mirchoff both revealed before Sunday night’s MTV Movie Awards, that they were speaking with the “Star Wars” production team about potential roles…


From Huffingtonpost:

“I think they told me, ‘No, you’re not in it,'” Elgort, who stars in “The Fault in Our Stars,” said about “Episode VII” when asked if his “Star Wars” audition was a success.

 Mirchoff, star of the MTV series “Awkward,” said he also auditioned for a part, but had not heard back yet one way or another about whether he was cast.

“I mean, everybody’s going in on this project. They’re trying to figure out what they want,” Michael B. Jordan, another star who auditioned, said last year. Thus far, that has been the tricky part: As of now, the only confirmed role in “Star Wars: Episode VII” is R2D2. It’s also rumored that Chewbacca actor Peter Mayhew and original cast members Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher and Mark Hamill will appear in the J.J. Abrams film.

No official announcements today but at least StarWars.com has a new great look! πŸ™‚

    This is nice… Now how about some official casting news, Disney. May is getting very close.

    The heart and soul of this franchise is Mark Hamill. That was a perfect casting decision, and I hope he has a huge part in this movie.

    God, I hope Disney wouldn’t be so stupid as to resort to using MTV “stars” for the ST. MTV produces mindless garbage by mindless people. Might as well call in Lindsey Lohan and Miley Cyrus while they’re at it. πŸ˜›

      This is what I don’t understand about some Star Wars fans. It’s not OK if they cast famous people (particularly young female actresses) even if they play the part well, but it IS Ok if these same young women are sexualized and painted green.

    Just about every casting rumor involves Twilight-aged talent. I really hope they aren’t going to give Star Wars the Twilight treatment.

    I’m hoping for characters of a variety of ages.

      Yeah I’m sick to death of the rumours about Gary Oldman and Harrison Ford and Mark Hamill and Carrie Fisher and Judi Dench and John Noble and Sullivan Stapleton and Ben Kingsley and Hugo Weaving and Michael Fassbender and Sigourney Weaver. I mean come on cast some older people too !!! .. πŸ˜‰

      I completely agree. It starts principal photography in less than a month. They cant even confirm fucking Anthony Daniels.

    I’m pretty sure that grumpy cat would be in the movie, i could see it in he’s eyes :p.
    No, just hopping that mark, harrison and carrie are in the movie (and of course anthony daniels, Kenny baker, peter mayhew and billy dee Williams, maybe there is some place for frank oz as Yoda, but that will be a small change, maybe as hologram traning video thingy in the jedi temple).

    Yes, we are ALL looking forward to the proud announcement that an elderly Jar-Jar Binks will figure PROMINENTLY in the Sequel Trilogy. How delighted fans will be!

      I my have just signed up yesterday to start posting on this site, but I have been following it for a few weeks now and I’m blown away by the hostility between some of the posters. As much as I don’t understands so called “fans” who feel the need to trash certain aspects of the franchise, you’re being a little harsh there Raw. As pointless as Cenindo’s comment was, he never accused you of claiming that Jar Jar was going to be in EpVII. We should all take the time to read what someone’s comment actually is before being personally offended by it. And even if we don’t agree with another’s comment, make a sensible argument as to why you don’t agree and keep the debate/discussion going. Telling them to go f**k themselves kills the debate/discussion and simply invites others to lower themselves to that level. To use an example from another franchise, if Prof. X and Magneto can have a mutual respect for one another despite being on opposite ends of the spectrum ie. human/mutant relations, surely all of us as Star Wars fans can have a mutual respect for each other despite our personal views on the OT, PT and the EU.

      I saw the PT as a kid. Actually liked it’s stupidity but disliked the obviousity of it when I was ten. Now I just feel he was told so and couldn’t do anything about it. What a waste of a talented actor, he could have at last changed during the film from a dumb idiot to a better and more lifed character (war, risk for life, more responsability) instead he just happened to be there everytime.
      PS: how the hell he survived all those times I have no idea…

      As for me, Jar-Jar certainly didn’t ruin my childhood, since I watched the prequel trilogy as an adult (like 30-something). I just wrote a mildly sarcastic comment here, folks. No need to bring out swear-words. I do not see myself as a “hater”, in fact I have spent and continue to spend a tremendous amount of time meditating on the deeper themes of the Star Wars saga,

      After the first two movies, Lucas sadly started to write down to children too much, diluting even serious battles with overly cartoonish caracters like Ewoks and Gungans. Happily, by “Revenge of the Sith” he finally regained his form and eliminated the clownish antics, producing a movie that is in many ways better than “Return of the Jedi”. See? I’m not even a prequel-hater.

      Small amounts of lighthearted “silliness” can be quite OK, as a form of comic relief. Even in dark and serious Empire we have the scene where they discover that the Falcon has landed inside the belly of an enormous space monster — and the brief scene doesn’t hurt the movie at all. In fact, it is a welcome diversion.

      Unfortunately, but the third movie the cartoonish elements started to intrude on the main story-line and eclipse it. That was not a good thing, and it carried over into Phantom Menace many years later. Yet Clones was already noticably improved, and Sith was in many ways excellent, when Lucas finally stopped shying away from the dark and serious implications of his own story.

      Actually I think I would appreciate a (brief!) scene in the new trilogy where a Gungan and an Ewok appears TOGETHER and some character makes a remark to the effect, “Great! The two most annoying species in the galaxy meet!” That would be a nice touch of self-irony.

      I am somewhat taken aback that certain people seem to react to (what I intended as) mild sarcasm as if it were horrible, hateful blasphemy. Well, I guess Star Wars really IS a religion to some people …

      Cenindo: my anon comment was tongue-in-cheek. I was joking and did not intend to cause harm. I am glad to hear that you do not hate the PT. I am a big Star Wars fan for BOTH the PT and OT. However, with that said, I wish you can stick up for the PT more often, especially when hostile individuals here bash everything from Jar jar to the overly-shiny armor of the Clone troops. It is unfair to hear and read these comments, and something I feel like I’m the only person on this message board who likes the PT and, as a result, am the only one getting bashed around here.

    There is a POSSIBLE EP VII film set photo out in the desert of Abu Dhabi over on Jedinews. Have a look.

      ^Worth a look, Viral.

      Says there is a prop that looks like R2D2’s escape capsule from Episode IV.

      (More evidence that Disney doesn’t know how to carry on, so they’re desperately looking back at anything and everything from the OT for ideas.)

      I don’t really see that happening. Mainly because the actor decided to retire from acting and finish college. He sees acting more as something fun, but did not really have any ambition with it.

      He’s a great actor, but I do not think he will/has auditioned for a roll in the Sequel movies.

      Can that really be believed? ” I’m packing it in”, it sounds ridiculous. Actors love acting, especially the successful ones.

    I auditioned for a character named Bodi. I live in Wales and had to tape through my agent. My one line: “Master Skywalker, the transports are ready.” Of course, the character, and the line may have been crafted just for the reading, but it was cool to have the opportunity.
