18 Hot Young Actors Who Have Auditioned to Be the New Han Solo
When it comes to casting a leading man for the new Han Solo spinoff movie, Disney and Lucasfilm are willing to search galaxies far, far away to find the perfect person. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the film studios have conducted the "widest casting search ever" to find a young Han, seeing over 2,500 actors for the project, in person and on tape. While we'll most likely end up seeing a familiar famous face on screen in the final product, casting directors have been reportedly seeing just as many unknowns, with ages ranging from 16 all the way to 34 years old.
Luckily for the people in charge, the new Star Wars spinoff — directed by The Lego Movie duo Phil Lord and Chris Miller — won't start shooting until January 2017, which means they have more than enough time to sift through a mountain of audition tapes to find someone who not only possesses the right balance of swagger and cockiness but somewhat resembles a young Harrison Ford. Will Fantastic Four alum Miles Teller score the part? Does Neighbours star Dave Franco have what it takes? Keep reading to see which actors are in the running to slip on Han's iconic vest!
