J.J. Abrams wants to give someone a part in the upcoming “Star Wars: Episode VII,” and for $10 bucks it could be you.

The director is urging fans to “be a force for change” by donating $10 to Unicef and automatically being entered for a chance to win. The randomly-chosen winner will be flown to the set, put through hair and makeup, get to meet the cast and crew, and have a part in the movie.
