Josh Homme and the ‘Star Wars’ “Audition”


Did you know that Queens of the Stone Age frontman, Josh Homme had auditioned for Star Wars: Episode VII?

Well, don’t feel like an idiot because the singer did not actually audition for the J.J. Abrams directed film which is still in limbo. The musician was actually making a cameo on British YouTube comedy duo, Stinky Mike’s who were they were doing a spoof on the auditioning process for the film titled, Star Wars: Episode VII–The Auditions.

In the clip, one of the two was in the process of finishing up an interview with the musician when Homme let it slip out that he wished to expand his resume into the film world and as only someone could plan, there was a casting call taking place next door.

While Homme looks like he could easily pass for a wookie with his ginger looks and height, turns out that the music man actually has aspirations of being something a little less tall and fuzzy. He is quotes as saying he wants to be “R2D2, king of the droids; an articulate, multilingual doer.”

All right-y then.
