"Star Wars Episode VII" director J.J. Abrams has recruited two powerful geeks to help him raise awareness for his Force for Change charity drive: Stephen Colbert and Jon Stewart. 

The Comedy Central duo are featured in a new video promoting the fundraising contest; which for only $10 gives fans a shot at winning a walk-on role in the new film. 

"By entering your chance to join us, you'll get to help us launch something else — Star Wars: Force for Change, a brand-new initiative that dedicated to finding creative solutions to some of the world's biggest problems. It's about helping kids all around the world by supporting UNICEF Innovation Labs and Programs," Abrams adds. 

In their promotion, Stewart and Colbert battle to see who is the bigger "Star Wars" geek; with an amusing show of force powers and a very touching ending. Check out the video below. To enter the contest, jump here
