Who is Alden Ehrenreich?
As you’ve no doubt heard by now, Alden Ehrenreich will play a young Han Solo in the upcoming Solo ‘Star Wars Story’. His most well known role to date was in the Cohen brothers film Hail, Caesar!, but he’s also featured in Beautiful Creatures, Stoker and Blue Jasmine – 3 slow-burners that demand a lot of restraint and atmosphere from an actor. Not traits you usually associate with Han Solo, but there’s no doubt that Ehrenreich has some serious acting chops. The casting in the generation Star Wars has been universally brilliant, so I’m sure he’s the best man for the role!
We even don’t know much about Rogue One yet, let alone the Han Solo stand-alone film, and it wont even start shooting until next year, but we’ll keep you posted when we know more. What do you guys think of the casting? Would you have chosen anyone else? Let us know!
