Ohhh that’s a great Captain Fanta cosplay
I loved Battlestar Galactica as a kid.
Come to think of it, @Tall_Paul1, I also grew up watching Doctor Who.
I feel seen right now, lol.
Ooh. Now I’m second guessing myself. Maybe I should go as 3PO instead?
You do know the guy in the red shirt always dies, right?
So is anyone tempted to audition then?
I haven’t eat the fine print, not sure what the eligibility criteria are, but if I “qualify” I could be tempted to send one in for laughs.
“oh look honey, the front desk sent up some lovely pine boxes for our check out tomorrow”
They are looking for a female captain in her 40s and I’m very, very tempted to audition.
Tempted? Yes. Brave enough? No. My wise-assery being relegated to forum comments is probably best for everyone. Cause the minute I see something like this (ingore the preview you just need to watch a few seconds from the link):
Guests start getting kicked out the airlock.
And it’s probably best not to eat print.
I feel absolutely no sympathy. You wanna show off like an attention-starved child, you deserve what happens.
ok ok… fair enough
Allears.net has had a recent post that there is a casting call for characters called, “The Captain”, “The Cruise Director”, “The Ship’s Mechanic”, and, menacingly enough, “The Fixer”. These are in addition to already made casting calls for Rey and Kylo Ren. Rey and Kylo are supposed to have sword and martial arts training, so sounds like there will be some action around the ship.
If I were Daisy Ridley or Adam Driver, I would totally show up to audition as a joke.
That’s what’s in the link I posted!
Roles for StarCruiser:
SEEKING THE FOLLOWING :
CAPTAIN : Seeking a mature, commanding actor with strong improvisational abilities to portray the Halcyon’s Captain. She is a worldly Pantoran (40s-50s) with a rich, diverse history and dedication to her vocation. She is a strong and charismatic leader who has served as a well-respected ship commander for some time and demands the attention and focus of every room she walks into.
CRUISE DIRECTOR : Seeking an effervescent actor with strong improvisational abilities to portray the Halcyon’s Cruise Director. She is a human (30s) with the capacity to learn that life is about more than the fun of the moment, and draws inspiration from the efforts she sees being made to bring harmony and justice to the galaxy. A born cruise director who loves travel and adventure, she is a cheerful and harmonious people person.
SHIP MECHANIC : Seeking a friendly and engaging actor with strong improvisational abilities to portray the mechanic. A youthful (late teens-20s) human with big dreams, his enthusiasm sometimes outpaces his capabilities, and, as a result, he tries to present a braggadocios front to mask the vulnerability of being far from home.
THE FIXER : Seeking a confident and engaging actor with strong improvisational abilities to portray The Fixer. Character portrayed is a well-traveled, devil-may-care human (40s). A convincing and handsome schemer, he uses his charm to his advantage as he seeks out associates to enlist in his criminal enterprise. His calculated and conniving approach is an intellectual dance; a paso doble that leaves passengers wondering… was he the bull or the matador? Actors with sleight of hand tricks a plus and are encouraged to prepare a demonstration of abilities.
FIRST ORDER LIEUTENANT : Seeking a charismatic and engaging actor with strong improvisational abilities to portray the First Order Lieutenant. Character portrayed is human (40s) and working his way up the ladder. An ambitious officer of the First Order, the Lieutenant is new to his position of power, and is working hard not to let us know that. He doesn’t see a line between abusing and leveraging power.
SABER TRAINER : Seeking warm and engaging athletic actors with improvisational abilities to serve as Saber Trainers. Character portrayed is in their 20’s-30’s. Patient and well-composed instructors, Saber Trainers serve as expert wielders of the lightsaber and he/she/they take cruisers through a physical demonstration. Prior sword/saber experience a plus as the role requires the ability to confidently brandish a lightsaber.
SEEKING THE FOLLOWING :
THE FIRST-TIME CRUISER : Seeking a youthful and friendly actor/guitarist/singer with strong improvisational acting abilities to portray The First-Time Cruiser. Character portrayed is a Togrutan (20s) who aspires to be more than the “alien next door”. This hopeless romantic is a friendly and earnest musician who happily serenades his fellow guests as he aspires to impress the Galactic Superstar. He is a strong rhythm guitarist with a happy go lucky, easy going musical style. A struggling singer/songwriter looking for his big break. Vocal range low C to high A; Low tenor/high baritone.
GALACTIC SUPERSTAR : Seeking an actor/vocalist with strong improvisational abilities to portray our Galactic Superstar. Character portrayed is a Twi*lek (30s-40s) who commands respect and flame-roses at her feet. Operating in a legally-dubious world of galactic intrigue while fighting for her race’s integrity and freedom, she is also a phenomenally soulful singer who demands focus in every conversation and performance alike. Her vocal range is preferably that of a Mezzo Soprano and her musical style is a hybrid of neo-soul, jazzy, funk, colored by her extensive travel and experiences.
