Although last week revealed some pretty serious Star Wars: Episode 7 casting news, it still looks like the England-based production is looking for more roles.

Now, this cannot be 100% confirmed as genuine, but the guys over at have recently posted a new casting call seeking some rather 'interesting' background actors. The casting call, which is looking for males and females of all backgrounds and ethnicity, is particularly scouting for actors with 'memorable eye-catching looks' including 'facial scars' and even 'bad teeth' - which, considering they're casting in England shouldn't be hard to find (It's OK, I'm English, so I'm allowed to make that joke). Check out the full casting call below:

CHARACTER TYPES/INTERESTING FACES] Males and Females, any age over 16. Interesting looks. Character faces, memorable eye-catching looks, unusual type looks. This could be people with strong physical features, facial scars, big beards, long hair, bad teeth, large facial features, dreadlocks, or interesting ethnic appearance such as darker skin and light eyes.
CHARACTER TYPES: "Characterful, memorable, eye catching & unusual looking men & women.
Shooting on these roles will take place on various days between May, 2014 and September, 2014 in the London, Hertfordshire; Bedfordshire areas of the UK.

Of course, it's not clear what these roles are for, or as I said above, even if this casting call is genuine. However, if it is, it certainly suggests [Star Wars: Episode VII](movie:711158) has some interesting scenes on the cards. The roles described above certainly wouldn't be out of place in a 'Mos Eisley Cantina' type location, or as some kind of pirate or criminal gang.

What do you think? Any ideas what these roles could be for? Let us know below.
