  • Donald Glover pushed agent to win him Star Wars role

Ehrenreich stars as a young Han Solo in the Ron Howard-directed film that looks at the early years of the most famous space smuggler in the Star Wars universe. "To his credit, and I appreciate it, he was like "I don't like your odds", which was awesome because I was like "I'm gonna get this".

At today's Solo: A Star Wars Story press junket, Paul Bettany was asked about playing the film's villain and compared the two above mentioned roles.

He voices a four-armed alien in Solo: A Star Wars Story and also recently signed on to write and produce a live-action Star Wars television series. "Because he's.' And I was like, 'Well.' [The interviewer replied] 'Well you have your chance.' And he was behind me".




Ford and Ehrenreich were last spotted together in January 2017, when a fan snapped a photo of the two grabbing lunch. "It's just such a huge deal to have him really genuinely love it", explained Ehrenreich. I know for Ron [Howard] and [producer] Kathleen [Kennedy] it's just such a huge deal to have him really, genuinely enjoy the film. It stars Ehrenreich as Han Solo, Glover as Lando Calrissian, Woody Harrelson as Tobias Beckett, Emilia Clarke as Qi'ra, Thandie Newton as Val, Phoebe Walker-Bridge as L3-37, Joonas Suotamo as Chewbacca and Paul Bettany as Dryden Vos.

The keepers of the Star Wars cinematic franchise have had a couple of white-knuckle landings into theatres since Disney bought Lucasfilm and rebooted George Lucas' creation. The new film also features Glover stepping into a role closely associated with another actor: Billy Dee Williams played Calrissian in "The Empire Strikes Back" and "Return of the Jedi". I'd like to think I'd still be honest but it's not like you're going to come to my Instagram story for hard edged criticism on a Star Wars movie.

In the meantime, Solo opens May 24 in Australia and May 25 in the U.S. and UK.
