‘Star Wars: Episode 7′ Audition Script Revealed, Plus Is ‘Doctor Who’ a Possible Contender?
Michael B. Jordan put the whole 'Star Wars: Episode 7' casting rumor mill perfectly, saying something to the effect of, "Yes, I've auditioned, but who hasn't?" So many names have been said to have auditioned for the new characters in the next installment, and to give you an idea of what the process is like for them, we've got a peek at their material.
Bleeding Cool got its hands on the script used to audition actors for roles in 'Star Wars: Episode 7.'
Rachel labors to bear Thomas’s weight as they inch their way down a deserted road, blood dripping from his leg.
He’s trying to stomach an apple
THOMAS (kidding): Can’t you go any faster?
RACHEL: Shut up and eat your apple.
He enjoyed that, but every step is sheer agony on the leg.
RACHEL: There’s a barn a little farther up the road…
A big barn, dark and damp. Rachel covers the floor with hay, then lays out her sleeping bag. Thomas looks through her backpack for anything he can use as a bandage.
RACHEL: You need rest.
She lowers him down – which puts her face mere inches from his open would. She cringes without meaning to.
THOMAS: Sorry. I know it’s -
RACHEL: It’s fine. I’m just not a big fan of blood.
THOMAS: You know, for such a tough girl, you’re kind of squeamish.
RACHEL: Your fever’s still up. And we have to get some more food in you.
THOMAS: I’m not hungry.
RACHEL: It wasn’t a request.
She sits down next to him and takes out a loaf of bread.
THOMAS: Rachel, thanks for coming to get me.
RACHEL: Family has to stick together, right?
She starts to rise. He grabs her hand, dead serious.
THOMAS: Listen, if I don’t make it -
THOMAS: But if I don’t…
Before he can finish, she drops down next to him and looks him dead in the eye.
RACHEL: You’re not going to die. I forbid it. Okay?
RACHEL: Get some sleep.
THOMAS: What about you?
RACHEL: I will. In a bit.
Jason Flemyng posted a photo of the script to Instagram the other night (before ultimately removing it), confirming he is also going in to read for a potential role. However, the latest bigger name to be rumored is 'Doctor Who' himself, Matt Smith, who Bleeding Cool reports went in for some unknown meeting. The only known character confirmed to appear in 'Star Wars: Episode 7,' however, is the fan-favorite droid R2-D2.
'Star Wars: Episode 7' is slated for release on December 18, 2015.
