Alden Ehrenreich, Jack Reynor, and Taron Egerton Get Closer to Han Solo Role

And then there were three.  The search for Disney’s young Han Solo started off with thousands of applicants but it’s been reported that there are only three left.    According to The Hollywood Reporter:   Last weekend in London tests were conducted involving actors Alden Ehrenreich, who did scene-stealing work in Hail, Caesar!; Jack Reynor, best known for his work in Transformers: Age of Extinction; and Taron Egerton, the star of The Kingsman and Eddie the Eagle. Sources say there could be a few other names on the list, though due to the high level of secrecy on all Star Wars projects, it’s hard to ascertain them. Disney declined to comment.

Wait a second.  Wait just a second.  What about Anthony Ingruber?  Does anyone remember this guy? He’s known for doing the best Harrison Ford impersonation pretty much ever.  The guy has even been mention by Ford himself as having an uncanny resemblance.  Plus the two have met!  Let me refresh your memory

Well we know this. Disney is being secretive so zero cats are going to be let out of the bag. But the fact that we know the three gentlemen above even screen tested is enough for the internet to go a little nutty right now.

The new character will debut in a Star Wars spinoff movie being made by Disney, Lucasfilm and filmmakers Phil Lord and Christopher Miller (21 Jump Street, The Lego Movie) and scheduled for 2018.  And just for exact numbers sake, Disney cast a very wide net for the young man to play one of the most iconic roles in film history.  Over 2,500 actors have either met with those in charge of casting or put themselves on tape, becoming part of one of the widest casting calls ever.

Man, we haven’t even gotten through with the latest installment of Star Wars and now we’re moving on to the next or should I say previous Han Solo?  Things are heating up in a galaxy far far away.
