Who Should Play Young Han Solo in the “Star Wars” Prequel?
“Star Wars” fans are freaking out all over the internet this week following the news that Han Solo is getting his own prequel, directed by “Lego Movie” masterminds Chris Miller and Phil Lord.
The screenplay, written by Lawrence Kasdan and Jon Kasdan, “focuses on how young Han Solo became the smuggler, thief, and scoundrel whom Luke Skywalker and Obi-Wan Kenobi first encountered in the cantina at Mos Eisley,” the announcement says.
Now the biggest question on our minds is which snarky handsome white guy is going to land the part – and the internet has plenty of ideas. No surprise, Chris Pratt is one of them, though others have been quick to roll their eyes at the idea. He’s already played Starlord and the manly hero of “Jurassic World,” let’s not get crazy.
Then there’s Anthony Ingruber, who played the young version of Harrison Ford in “Age of Adeline” and does a pretty good impression of him in this video:
Okay wow, maybe calm down.
Some “Teen Wolf” fans have latched onto the idea that Dylan O’Brien should get the part, because he’s totally cute and he once said it was his dream role.
Aaron Paul from “Breaking Bad” caused some speculation by posting to Instagram, “My dreams are coming true.”
Garrett Hedlund from “Friday Night Lights” might have the right look:
Ansel Elgort? The kid from “The Fault in Our Stars”? Sure, why not.
And if none of those guys work, “Mini Me” actor Verne Troyer is ready and waiting.
