you want to be in Star Trek XI? Are you skinny? That’s the only hard and fast requirement for being an extra in the film, although being super ugly while being skinny is helpful. A casting call has gone out for the film, and it’s looking like they need a bunch of aliens and Vulcans. Thanks to Coming Soon here’s the info:


[MALES & FEMALES] – Ages 18-70, any ethnicity: to play Cadets: young, fresh-faced, Military types: marching experience preferred, thin, regal talent with BROWN or BLACK hair AND are OK with their eyebrows being shaved from the arch outward to portray a Vulcan-type eyebrow shape.

Obviously no one in Star Trek XI‘s casting office has been to a Trek convention (or any nerd con for that matter) – body type is no barrier to people wearing form fitting clothes. I have the psychic scars to prove it.
