After using breakout hit ‘Empire’ to take Trai Byers (Andre), Jussie Smollett (Jamal), and Bryshere Gray (Hakeem) from virtually unknown to household names, the show’s creator/director Lee Daniels is looking to create his next set of stars.
Via the aptly titled ‘Star,’ Daniels has teamed with FOX to create a new musical drama centered around a three girl-band’s rise to the top (and the drama, heartache, and disappointment encountered along the way). Set to begin shooting in December in Atlanta, the execs at the network are looking to fill the roles fairly quickly and have launched an international digital casting call.

Here are descriptions of the four roles:
STAR: Character is a Caucasian female, 18 years old (actor must be 18 years of age or over). She’s a tough chick with a badass attitude.
ALEXANDRA: Character is an African-American female, about 20 (actor must be 18 years of age or over). She’s an elegant yet classic beauty. Alexandra wants to put this material world behind her so she can make real, authentic music.
SIMONE: Character is Half African-American Half Caucasian, Star’s younger sister, 16 years old (actor must be 18 years of age or over). Tragic and adorable.
COTTON: Character is a half African-American and half Latina transgender woman with a stunning look, 20 (actor must be 18 years of age or over). She has an especially keen eye for fashion. (source)
