CHATSWORTH, Calif.—Blockbuster machine Axel Braun is gearing up for his most ambitious project yet, Star Wars XXX: A Porn Parody, with an open casting call next week for all but one of the principal roles.
"I have already cast Lexington Steele as Darth Vader, but all other lead roles are open," Braun told AVN. "This project is a huge undertaking, and casting the lead roles is extremely important."
The characters in question, Braun made a point of specifying, are those from the original Star Wars trilogy (A New Hope, The Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi). For anyone unfamiliar with the franchise, those characters include Luke Skywalker, Han Solo, Princess Leia, the older Obi-Wan Kenobi and Chewbacca.
"I absolutely hated the prequels, so I will only spoof the original trilogy," Braun promised.
The auditions take place Tuesday, March 8 from 6-10pm and Wednesday, March 9 from 2-8pm. Talent and agents should email firstname.lastname@example.org for location information.
Star Wars XXX: A Porn Parody is being produced by Axel Braun Productions and will be distributed by Vivid Entertainment. Both jointly make the following disclaimer:
