(WJBK) -

Here's your chance to fly to a galaxy far, far away. There's a nationwide casting call for two lead roles in J.J. Abrams upcoming film 'Star Wars: Episode VII.'

According to Cast it Talent, open auditions will be held at Somerset Inn (2601 W. Big Beaver) in Troy on Nov. 17 from noon to 5 p.m.

Agents are looking to fill the following roles:

1. Rachel (17 to 18 years old)

Must be beautiful, smart, and athletic. Open to all ethnicities (including bi- and multi-racial).

Was quite young when she lost her parents. With no other family, she was forced to make her way alone in a tough, danger town. Now 17, she has become street smart and strong. She is able to take care of herself using humor and guts to get by.

Always a survivor, never a victim, she remains hopeful that she can move away from this harsh existence to a better life. She is always thinking of what she can do to move ahead.

2. Thomas (19 to 23 years old)

Must be handsome, smart, and athletic. Must be over 18.

Has grown up without a father's influence. Without the model of being a man, he doesn't have the strongest sense of himself. Despite this, he is smart, capable, and shows courage when it is needed. He can appreciate the absurdities in life and understands you can't take things too seriously.

If you can't make it to the auditions, you can also submit a video resume online at www.opencastingcall2013.com.
