Part 2 of 3: Honorable Mentions and That’s A Bit of A Stretch.
Hello everyone and welcome to part 2 of my “Who should play Han Solo in the upcoming anthology?” Photo Mash Up series. In part 1 we pondered Who Will Play Han Solo? (aka That Vest Looks Really Good On You). In part 2 we’ll take a look at some additional fan favorite choices and the buzz surrounding Hollywood, that may or may not make sense. Let’s get to it.
Taron Egerton played gritty and charming to perfection as Gary “Eggsy” Unwin in Kingsman: The Secret Service. The perfect recipe for a Young Han Solo? I think so! I’m regretting not having him in my Top 5 choices. Sorry Scott Eastwood you’ve been replaced.
Tye Sheridan will be starring in Scouts Guide to the Zombie Apocalypse this October as well as playing the young Cyclops in the upcoming X-Men: Apocalypse. Tye may be the perfect fit to fly the Falcon, He’s 18 yrs old, he has the look, and the acting chops, all things producer Kathleen Kennedy is looking for to play the young Han Solo.
Seann William Scott
Seann William Scott is currently on location filming Goon: Last of the Enforcers. Yes they’re making a sequel to Goon, and yes you should see it if you haven’t already. Stifler is definitely a bit of a stretch but he’s been making the rounds as a possible candidate, at least by the fans.
Ryan Gosling may already be following in Harrison Ford’s footsteps as he’s been cast to play a role in the upcoming Blade Runner project currently in pre-production. Can he hang with the likes of Chewie and Greedo? And give Jabba a what for? I think so, but yeah probably too old for the role.
Chris Pratt is one of the hottest actors in Hollywood right now. Does he need another major starring role to notch in his blaster holster? Definitely a fan favorite to get the role, but I think we should leave this one alone. He’ll always be my Star-Lord.
So these are my Honorable Mentions and That’s a Bit of a Stretch choices. Upon further investigation, Taron Egerton and Tye Sheridan might be front runners for the role. Might need to move them into my Top 5.What do you think? Share your thoughts in the comments below.
This is purely a visual exploration, and right now this is all about What Ifs… and Wouldn’t it Be Cools… Next up, part 3 of my Who will play Han Solo? aka that vest looks good on you! “For Shits & Giggles.”
