Star Wars Hopefuls Brave the Cold

NASHVILLE, Tn. (WBKO) -- Cold temperatures could not keep hopeful actors from getting their chance to audition for the newest star wars film.

Hundreds of people turned up for the auditions in Nashville yesterday. Some people camped outside the Sheraton Hotel all night to be first in line, even though temperatures were in the 20s.

The auditions were supposed to start at noon, but they let people inside early because of the cold. Auditions were held for two major roles - a female in her late teens and a male in his early 20s.

The film will be released in december 2015.
