After reportingly seeing thousands of actors, apparently Lucasfilm is narrowing in on its young Han Solo.
According to a new report from Variety, the number of actors still in the running to play the younger version of Han Solo has been narrowed down to a dozen or so actors. Currently the list is said to include:
It looks as though the list is pretty far afield with not only ages but also notability. The majority of them are between 20 and 25 and the oldest (Eastwood) is 29.
The film isn’t due to begin filming until next January, so there is plenty of time to figure this out. From the list presented, I think I would pull for Eastwood currently based solely on looks. Thankfully he can also act. Teller I am not impressed with. I’m not quite sure why Franco seems to be up for everything lately. As for the rest… not a clue.
Looks like it’s going to be an interesting year while we wait to find out.
