When I first heard that Disney was making a Han Solo origin film, I thought ‘Hey, I could play him!’ Thing is, they are looking for a much younger Han Solo than I could portray – plus, all of that acting experience and such.
So, as expected, they have interviewed a number of other candidates and here’s who is now on the shortlist:
With the exception of Eastwood, who’s 29, Disney and Lucasfilm seem to be zeroing in on actors between the ages of 20 to 25. The studios tested actors as young as 17 to as old as 34.
The Han Solo pic is set to hit theaters on May 25, 2018.
