With the news that Disney have comfirmed that they are going to make a young Han Solo spin-off movie, there was no doubt going to be plenty of lists of actors who should play the character. Here, we give you three stars who we think are capable of pulling of a young Han Solo.
We like to stick the odd controversial choice out there but we honestly believe that Zac Efron could do a good job as a young Han Solo. The character played by Harrison Ford had charm and charisma, as well as good looks, all boxes which Zac Efron ticks. With the impressive forward steps that he has been making since High School Musical, now could be the time to give him a shot at a big franchise movie.
While there are many reason to dismiss Eddie Redmayne as a young Han Solo, there are still plenty of points in his favour. Yes, he is English and doesn't exactly resemble Harrison Ford but he is a great actor and there are plenty of ways to make his appearance more Han Solo-ish. Eddie is like Zac in the sense that he is on the cusp of a lead role in aHollywood blockbuster.
You may have noticed that Garrett Hedlund is a favourite of ours but the reasons are obvious. Garrett Hedlund is a very good-looking young man, who oozes charm and charisma, which is just what Han Solo needs. Garrett has proven he is franchise material and he is capable of having that physical threat that Han Solo always gives off.
As always, feel free to give us your opinions on our candidates and give us a few of your own suggestions on who should play Han Solo in the Star Wars spin-off.
