The adorably named Pip Anderson was just added to the cast of Star Wars: Episode VII. He’s a parkour guy, so he’ll likely flip around the rest of the cast as they fire lasers at him, narrowly missing (as they often do in this far away galaxy). You can watch him ply his trade in the video above. It must be asked: does anyone else think J.J. Abrams is tempting fate casting another guy who could easily snap his leg on set? How many legs have to break to sate this maniac and his mystery box?!?!
He’s joined by Crystal Clarke, a lady! It’s a good thing too, because without more ladies, this trilogy might not have any scenes of powerful political leaders dying of broken hearts in childbirth.
Clarke’s bone density is unknown at this time, though, really, anything could happen…
Here’s what they look like:
And here’s a little more from Variety:
“The Star Wars universe has always been about discovering and nurturing young talent, and in casting ‘Episode VII,’ we wanted to remain absolutely faithful to this tradition. We are delighted that so many traveled to see us at the open casting calls and that we have been able to make Crystal and Pip a part of the film,” said Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy in a statement.
