Walt Disney Pictures and Lucasfilm are working hard to find the perfect young Han Solo for the 2018 Untitled Star Wars spinoff.
Variety reported that after seeing thousands of actors, the list has been brought down to about a dozen actors aged 20 to 29, with several favorites in the running. Among the contenders are Miles Teller, Ansel Elgort, Dave Franco, Jack Reynor, Scott Eastwood, Logan Lerman, Emory Cohen and Blake Jenner.
Playing the young Han Solo is not a role that will be easily cast and producer Kathleen Kennedy along with directors, Phil Lord and Chril Miller will have a hard job reaching a decision in the next few weeks. Many fans are asking why the rush to cast someone for a film that will not begin shooting until next year (January), but rumor has it the reason for an early cast is the possibility of a cameo in another upcoming Star Wars film – Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. Rogue One has a story line set between Episode III and Episode IV making a young Han Solo the perfect age for a cameo.
