‘Star Wars’ Han Solo Spin Off Shortlist: Scott Eastwood, Dave Franco & More
(Photo : Getty Images) Disney and Lucasfilm are inching closer to finding their young Han Solo for the upcoming untitled "Star Wars" spinoff. Disney’s rumored shortlist for the role of young Han Solo in the upcoming Solo-centric Star Wars spinoff is making its way around the Internet, and fans are none too happy with the candidates.
Harrison Ford was 35 when he played Han Solo in George Lucas’ “A New Hope,” and while Solo’s age has never been officially confirmed, Lucas himself said he was looking for someone around the age of 30 to play the captain of the Millennium Falcon.
Now, Hollywood is all about smoke and mirrors, and any one of these young actors could play someone in their mid-20s — at 29, Eastwood is the oldest contender — but it helps flesh out some of the details of this top-secret project.
SCOTT EASTWOOD - He has appeared in the films Flags of Our Fathers (2006), Gran Torino (2008), Invictus (2009), The Forger (2012), Trouble with the Curve (2012), and Fury (2014). He co-starred in the 2013 horror film Texas Chainsaw 3D with Alexandra Daddario and starred in the romantic film The Longest Ride (2015) with Britt Robertson. He has also been the model for the fragrance Cool Water by Davidoff. He is the youngest son of award-winning actor-director Clint Eastwood.
