We recently heard that Disney, Lucasfilm and directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller had apparently narrowed their search for an actor to step into the shoes of the younger version of Han Solo for their Star Wars spinoff down to a shortlist of 12.
Among some of the more recognizable names on the list (which also includes the likes of Miles Teller, Ansel Elgort, Dave Franco, and Scott Eastwood) were Jack Reynor (Transformers: Age of Extinction) and Logan Lerman (Fury, The Perks of Being A Wallflower); and MTV caught up with the pair at the Sundance Film festival over the weekend to ask them about it.
Though neither actor confirms their involvement, it seems fairly obvious from their refusal to discuss anything (if rumors are way off, they’ll usually be debunked outright) that there has at least been some talks.
Reynor acknowledges that there’s big shoes to full, but seems excited about the opportunity.
We’re talking about Harrison Ford. He’s no chump. 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.
Lerman, meanwhile, plays things even more coy – though he does admit that he’d have no problem being “a dick” in order to do the role justice.
Out of these two, who do you think would best suit this character? Let us know by dropping a comment below.
