After a long search Lucasfilm has found their new Han Solo in Hail Caesar’s Alden Ehrenreich.
He was said to be the front-runner for a couple of weeks now, and last night a British tabloid said the job was his. Now long after that all of the Hollywood trades confirmed that he’s in final negotiations. One of them even claims he does have a cameo in Rogue One this Christmas, which lines up with rumors that have been flying around.
Those say there’s a scene where the Rogue One crew are trying to put together a team and they run into Han Solo. He either turns them down or points them in the right direction of a scoundrel who will take them up on their offer. That would be a way to introduce the young Han Solo before his own movie releases in 2018.
