Star Trek Casting Call — Deformities Welcome

Here is something I'd like to share with all of you, particularly if you live in the Burbank area and maybe have bug eyes or are emaciated. A casting call was issued for people to play Cadets in JJ Abrams' Star Trek movie, and they are specifically searching for people who are "ultra plain-looking" or "ultra perfect-looking." Or, perhaps you have one of the following sought-after physical features:

  • Long neck
  • Extremely large head
  • Wide-set eyes or close-set eyes
  • Large forehead
  • Short upper lip
  • Over- or undersized ears and/or nose
  • Facial deformities
  • Pure wholesome looks
  • Are emaciated
  • Are regally poised and postured

So, get your wide-set-eyed, regally-poised self over to the casting call this Saturday in Burbank. Good luck!

I think it sounds like they were having some fun when making this list. I wish I were in the area. My ears may just be big enough!

Why didn't they just say "anyone without plastic surgery, come on down!"

In other words, they want normal looking people.

Why not use the real thing instead of make up? It might be tough for people to get great roles elsewhere, get a grip! Big headed people need love too!

not to be a geek here, but technically the picture should not be from Next Generation, it should be for the original series since those are the characters that are going to be in this movie. Carry on. Live long and prosper

What does a short upper lip look like?

I actually think it's kinda cool....everyone has a shot....I've always liked star trek and all of it's inter-galactic species.

What kinda casting call is this? If you're the most disfigured, starving, pathetic looking person, then you get a role. Why can't they just do makeup instead of using disfigured people?
