Who Will Play Han Solo? aka That Vest Looks Really Good On You!


We still have a little over 952 days before the Han Solo Anthology movie is released but there’s already a lot of buzz about the most famous smuggler in the galaxy. Phil Lord and Christopher Miller (The Lego Movie) have signed on to direct and Lawrence Kasdan with his son Jon, will be writing the script. Everything is awesome! In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Kathleen Kennedy said “He’ll definitely be probably in the high teens, low 20s. We’re not introducing you to a 10-year-old Han Solo.”

So here’s the question everyone’s been asking, Who should play Han Solo in the upcoming anthology? Who will fit the role best? Who has the acting chops to fill out that vest? Knowing what we know, it’s still anyones guess, and there’s already a ton of speculation from Hollywood pundits and fans alike.  I have my own top 5 choices. I’d like to share them with you, in this PhotoShop mashup/smackdown.

Part 1 of 3: Top 5


Anthony Ingruber

Anthony Ingruber recently played the young William Jones to Harrison Ford’s more mature William Jones in the film, The Age of Adaline. Is this a no brainer?!



Garrett Hedlund

Maybe he’s too old, but to me, he gives a good first impression. I really liked him in Tron: Legacy. He has the right swagger. We’ll see what he does as Hook with the release of PAN in October.



Scott Eastwood

I think he would do his Papa Clint proud if he landed this role. Will Disney make his day?



Dylan O’Brien

You’ll see him this September in the next chapter of the Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials. Will he be the one to make the Kessel Run in less than 12 parsecs?



Nicholas Hoult

He’s come a long way since having to put up with Hugh Grants cynicism and immaturity in “About a Boy”. He’s my sleeper to get the role. What a lovely day that would be.



So that’s my top 5 choices of who I think could/should play Han Solo in the Anthology film. This is purely a visual exploration, and right now this is all about What Ifs… and Wouldn’t it Be Cools… What do you think? What are your Top 5 choices? Share your thoughts in the comments below. Maybe I’ll do a Fan Fav post down the road.

Check back in a few days when I’ll be posting part 2 of my Who will play Han Solo? aka that vest looks good on you! Top 5 Honorable mentions and That’s a bit of a stretch choices.

Wiizzy Wiig What you see is what you get with Wiizzy Wiig. That’s a good thing. And then again… He’s here to tantalize your eyes with his good looks and charm, and an assortment of photoshopped mash up smackdowns along the way. A bunch of What ifs… and Wouldn’t it be cools… for the films you love to watch and the ones you can’t wait to see. It’s a good thing that a picture is worth a 1,000 words because Wiizzy can’t write for shit. But from time to time, you’ll see him post reviews, video blog and rant with the best of them. Please be gentle. You know these artist types. Wiizzy is an honest, off beat, and kind hearted movie lover. He’ll always try and find that silver lining in a heaping pile of shit. And if he down right loves something… you’ll know. And always always, Wiizzy will always be Frank with you.
  • I think Anthony Ingruber is it man. It makes so much sense. I just don’t know if he has the acting chops…. Just because this is Harrison Ford playing Han Solo we’re talking about here! I don’t know if any of them do.

    • Wiizzy Wiig

      Yeah you need Harrison’s swagger. I think a few of them have it.

  • MacAdie Ferguson

    Dylan O’brien. Hunk Alert…

    • Hey now!

      • MacAdie Ferguson

        No one out hunks you babe

    • Wiizzy Wiig

      Yeah you and Lola think alike. “If he’s playing Han, then I’m definitely seeing it!” is what she said

      • MacAdie Ferguson

        Lola= My Fave

  • Where’s Robert Pattinson?

    • Wiizzy Wiig

      Somewhere Sparkling? May consider him for honorable mentions?

      • You could do a follow up. “The Men Who Must Never, Under ANY Circumstance, Wear The Vest”

        • Wiizzy Wiig

          That actually may fall under my Part 3 For Shits & Giggles

  • Doug Lipski

    I’ll go with dark horse, Nicholas Hoult even tho he has an oddness about him that doesn’t feel quite right for Harrison Ford replacement. But I like what he does on screen as an actor. The rest seem like pretty boys for the most part.
