Jacob Tremblay took advantage of Wednesday’s holiday — May the 4th, of course — by sending a photo of himself and Shut In costar Naomi Watts to Star Wars: Episode IX director Colin Trevorrow along with the caption, “For your consideration…” via Twitter.

As if Tremblay’s acting chops (he scored a Golden Globe nomination for his performance in 2015’s Room) aren’t enough of a selling point, the 9-year-old also already did some of the work: Tremblay tweeted “#obiwannaomi” and “#jakeskywalker,” giving his and Watts’ potential characters their names.

Tremblay finished his tweet with “#Maythe4thBeWithYou,” which Trevorrow himself responded to in a tweet, writing, “And also with you.” “You’re hired” would have been better, but we’ll take what we can get. See the tweets below.
