'Star Wars' Han Solo Spinoff: Actor Shortlist Revealed


Sources tell Variety that after seeing thousands of actors, execs have cut the list down to about a dozen actors with Miles Teller, Ansel Elgort, Dave Franco, Jack Reynor, Scott Eastwood, Logan Lerman, “Brooklyn” star Emory Cohen and “Everybody Wants Some” actor Blake Jenner among the names making the cut.

The story is too old to be commented.

in truth, i don't want this movie to be made at all and if it has to happen, then i really don't want teller in that role. maybe scott eastwood. personally i would prefer chris pratt.

Chris Pratt is a TERRIBLE choice.

dauntingpixel1137d ago

it's a matter of opinion and i disagree with you. =)

Go watch Jurassic World. He could pull off Han, though he's too old for a film taking place with such a young Han.

RetrospectRealm1137d ago

I know that... You're the one who recommended him in your original comment... Lol

dauntingpixel1137d ago

i know. i'm just saying that i think he's a great actor and could pull it off is all

I can imagine Pratt as Indiana Jones but not as Han Solo, and being in 2 different franchises owned by Disney that are set in space and all that stuff, wouldn't be good

Ansel Elgort looks the most like Harrison Ford of the bunch.

I think Chris Pratt would be a great Han Solo and Indiana Jones. Something about him reminds me of a younger Harrison Ford.

Miles Teller...the guy who has a face you want to punch and not because of his smug, arrogant attitude. Then you have Dave Franco, hey he's alright in somethings but he'd be an awful Han.

Some of these are far too young and baby faced while the others don't look anything like Han.

Where the hell is Anthony Ingruber, perfect choice.

Out of curiosity did Miles Teller steal your lunch money or something?

-Foxtrot1136d ago

I'm sorry but he's just got one of those faces along with his smug attitude when talking in interviews.

Plus he's not a very good actor.

Lord_Sloth1136d ago

It isn't just Foxtrot on this 1. I have to agree that every time Teller is on screen I just want to hit him. He just looks like the world's most smug twat!

C'mon it's gotta be Shia LaBeouf they can go blast those aliens from crystal skull in hives of scum and villany! It'll be great lol

Disney buying Star Wars was one of the worst things to ever happen to the franchise. And thats considering the prequels ahich somehow look like masterpieces compared to this joke of a movie they just churned out.

Lucas is the worst thing to happen to Star Wars after he lost his dream team of actors who don't bow down and utter any insane line Lucas would have them read, the special effects gurus that made the visuals possible in the first place and the actual conceptual artists to bring the universe into reality, whether or not Lucas was the one who had final say what made the final cut. The musical genius is also independent of Lucas, John Williams is simply an amazingly talented composer. The audio effects people are wizards as well.

Lucas had an idea with SOME great, though sparingly novel, components, THOSE people above made it all actually happen, end of story.

Who cares about all that? All i know is this thing they call a movie hat just came out is the worst iteration to date.
