It’s confirmed, Woody Harrelson will be casting the next spin-off Star Wars on Han Solo! And the actor has already given some clues about his character.
The rumor circulating for some time, and it is now confirmed: Woody Harrelson is well cast of the upcoming spin-off Star Wars, focusing on the early years of our dear Han Solo. If the exact figure has not been revealed yet, and already we can already tell you that he will play a mentor role to the young Han Solo played by Alden Ehrenreich ( Hail, Caesar!, Sublime creatures ). A role that sticks to the skin, who was already playing mentor to Katniss and Peeta in the franchise Hunger Games . But do not put the cart before the oxen! In an interview with Mashable , Woody Harrelson confided about his character and he confirms be a mentor to Han Solo, he says he will not necessarily be a good person . “I’m a mentor to Han, but I’m also a bit of a criminal. I do not think I would have a lot of makeup. We’ll see how the style develops. I meet these guys tomorrow, for the hair, makeup, waterfalls and everything ” , he has said.
It makes sense when you think about it. The first time we met Han Solo in Episode IV: A New Hope , it was seen as a villain. If he was trained by a criminal, it is not very surprising. Fortunately, Han also turns out to be a good person, but we are delighted to discover him in his young years, intrepid and rebellious. According to some speculations, Woody Harrelson could play the character of Garris Shrike, a space pirate who, in books, learns to Han Solo how to fly and shoot as a villain. So he joined Donald Glover, who plays the young Lando Calrissian , and Emilia Clarke, whose role remains for the moment unknown. While waiting to learn more, discover what kind of movie is this new spin-off! And what do you think of Woody Harrelson’s role?
