'Empire' Series Season 2 New York Premiere

Although American Idol is ending next year, it looks like Lee Daniels will be carrying on the tradition.

The Empire creator will be holding an international casting search for the main roles in his new musical drama, titled Star. The show is about an Atlanta girl group trying to make it big. According to Entertainment Weekly, there will be four main characters. Here’s what Daniels is looking for:

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.”

If you think you’ve got what it takes, take your chances here.
