Where can I try out as an actor? Sadly I'm in the states and would love to go to audition but Australia isn't exactly a hot skip away.

You'll need a work permit for any sort of formal employment in Aussie. And even then I suspect they'll only employ Australian citizens anyway.

Unless they're looking for illegal aliens. That might be a different matter.

Damn. I'm a tall skinny mofo, and dance and theatre trained. Sadly, I believe Australia could be on the exact opposite side of the globe from me...  :laugh:

Start digging...

One interesting thing about this is that the official synopsis for the film claims DAVID is the only inhabitant of this world. Which begs the question: Where do all of these characters fit into that framework?
Are they part of some flashback sequence?
Is David lying and there are plenty of people/engineers on this planet with him?
or-
Is the Covenant carrying an entire Colony of people? If so, what kind of colony is comprised of these types?

This is very exciting news. If we look at the extremes I'd rather have obviously human Aliens than obviously CGI ones.

I just remembered reading it at one point now that you brought it up. I didn't get it at the time but now I do.  :laugh:

Comeon! I had a Joe avatar too!  :laugh:

You are becoming hysterical!  :laugh:

The references must've completely flew over my head at the time, or I wasn't paying attention to their awesomeness. XD

No, it just doesn't mention Shaw, doesn't mean she isn't there, she just won't be in the next movie, but prob in the movie after. I don't trust anything Ridley Scott says anymore...If he however just kills off the character like Hicks n Newt were killed off..I will be even more disappointed than I was with Prometheus..

Something tells me they are looking for actors to play "Deacon" hybrids or variations thereof. It is as if Sir Scott wants to have many different types of the 'ancestor' program and then build up to the final resolution and crescendo at the end of the film, wherein the ultimate form of this bio-weapon, the Xenomorph itself, is unveiled as the final showdown. I really hope he goes that route, with various small skirmishes and encounters with the various "attempts" by the Engineers at creating this theoretical "perfect organism" gone awry, and through much struggle and conflict (and maybe even an Engineer-Human team-up), eventually they track down the "egg silo".

Wonder what the midgets are for.

Engineer kids?

That was my thought too.

If the tall people are going to play Engineers then the "midgets" (proportionate dwarfs) will probably play normal humans in order to get the necessary scale contrast.

Kind of how Ridley Scott used his kids in Alien to make the Space Jockey ...err "Engineer" appear bigger.

Engineers kids are the last thing I want to see, enough with the Space Jockey emasculation already!
