A couple of weeks ago saw the shortlist of actors Disney is eyeing to play the young Han Solo in the upcoming Star Wars anthology/spinoff movie hit the net, which included Logan Lerman (Fury) and Jack Reynor (Transformers: Age Of Extinction).
MTV recently caught up with the actors to get their thoughts.
“We’re talking about Harrison Ford. He’s no chump,” Reynor said. “You can’t do an imitation. You can’t try and just emulate what that is. It’s got to be something new. It’s also got to be something that the audience is going to respond to.... would be kind of an incredible gig to get."
“I don’t think I’d be intimidated,” Lerman offered. “It would just be fun.” And as noted in the video below, Lerman said he’d have no problem being a “dick” to get into character of Han Solo.
The untitled Star Wars Han Solo anthology movie has a May 25, 2018 release.
