Axel Braun Announces Cast for 'Star Wars XXX'
Braun chose fresh-faced brunette starlet Allie Haze for the coveted role of Princess Leia. The 24-year-old has been acting in adult films since 2009 and Braun said he believes this will be a “career-making role for her.”
Michael Vegas will play Luke Skywalker, Rocco Reed will portray Han Solo, Alec Knight will get covered in fur to become Chewbacca, and Tom Byron has grown a full beard to inhabit the Obi-Wan Kenobi role. They will be joining adult industry legend Lexington Steele, who had already been cast as Darth Vader.
Filming begins on April 18 and will continue over 14 days in various California locations. The movie will be produced by Axel Braun Productions and distributed starting Sept. 30 by Vivid Entertainment.
“Casting this film was not an easy process" Braun said. "The auditions were phenomenal, and everybody came incredibly well prepared. This movie needs both great individual performances and specific chemistry between the main characters, and we got them in spades. In the end we chose the best of the best, and the result is an amazing cast.
"The moment I saw Allie I realized she is destined to be the next big porn star. She is stunningly beautiful, very professional, and a hell of a performer who clearly loves sex. Fans are going to be very happy with her as Leia,” he added.
Braun said Tom Byron “made everybody in the room understand why he's still winning awards after 30 years in the industry. His commitment to the role of Obi-Wan Kenobi is such that he started growing a full beard and turned down work that required him to shave, even though we're still a month away from shooting."
"Rocco Reed is a rarity in this business: he's got the looks of a GQ model, an infectious enthusiasm, and plenty of ambition. He's capable of listening and eager to learn every aspect of the filmmaking process. I can see him going straight to the top in the next few years.
"Michael Vegas actually came to read for Han Solo, but as soon as he walked in I realized he would make a great Luke. His screen test was hilarious, as was Alec Knight's impression of Chewbacca. And yes, Chewy will have sex!"
