Open auditions for two roles in Star Wars Episode VII have been held in London and Dublin this weekend.
Disney producers are looking for undiscovered talent to fill two major roles for the upcoming instalment of the sci-fi series.

'Saving Mr Banks': Would Pl Travers approve of the Walt Disney movie?
24 November 2013 1:30 AM, PST
Would she have approved of the film? Even star Thompson isn't so certain...
"I'm not sure. I think she would accept it and I think she might turn around and say, 'I was right. I was right all along.' I think she might feel vindicated, actually," she said.
"I think she'd also feel invaded because she was very, very private. In the end, contradictory, she also left everything she'd ever written to posterity. Now if you do that, that means at some point or other you'd want people to know. »
'Saving Mr Banks' review: Tom Hanks, Emma Thompson make Mary Poppins

Director: John Lee Hancock; Screenwriters: Kelly Marcel, Sue Smith; Starring: Emma Thompson, Tom Hanks, Colin Farrell, Ruth Wilson, Jason Schwartzman, Paul Giamatti; Running time: 125 mins; Certificate: PG
"Mary Poppins is the very enemy of sentiment and whimsy, she doesn't sugarcoat the darkness," bellows Pl Travers (Emma Thompson) to Walt Disney (Tom Hanks) during a script meeting as the House of Mouse tries to put together an all-singing, all-penguin-dancing version of the author's beloved novel.
Creative tension between Hollywood and writers is nothing new - Stephen King famously despised Stanley Kubrick's The Shining adaptation, while Alan Moore became so frustrated with movies based on his work he requested his name be removed from the credits entirely.
Saving Mr Banks peels back the curtain to go behind the scenes on the making of Disney's 1964 classic Mary Poppins. For Walt Disney, making a film out of this book represents a two-decade quest »
Scott Porter on 'Friday Night Lights' movie: 'I have trepidation'
23 November 2013 7:40 PM, PST
Fans of the football-themed drama have called for a big-screen continuation since the series ended in 2011, but star Kyle Chandler has said that a movie would be unnecessary.
"It's tricky for me because Jason's story ended so well," he explained. "At first, it was a kick in the gut to know that I'd be leaving the show in season three, but once I realised how they allowed Jason to leave the show, I understood."
Porter continued: "Out of every character on that show, you could almost fight to say that Jason won. He won at life and overcame so much. I think his future is pretty set in stone. »

23 November 2013 5:21 PM, PST
Daniel Radcliffe has said that he would like to die on a film set.
The actor explained that growing up while shooting the Harry Potter movies led him to associate backlots with "immense comfort and familiarity".
"There's an assumption that people make where if you've grown up on a set, surely you must be tired of that or want to go somewhere else," he told The Guardian.
"But actually, I've never known anything but being on film sets and I love them. They are places of immense comfort and familiarity.
"I hope I get to die on one. Honestly. [Though] later rather than sooner," he added.
Radcliffe - who famously appeared naked on stage in Peter Shaffer's Equus and played an orphaned outsider in The Cripple of Inishmaan - can currently be seen in beat generation film Kill Your Darlings as poet Allen Ginsberg.
