Fans of Star Wars have been sharing their two cents on who should play the ‘scruffy nerf-herder’ since the Han Solo spin-off was announced. Collider, the home of Collider: Jedi Council, had a lot to say about the Han Solo anthology.  Disney released a list of potential actors in January, with actors ranging from Miles Teller to Jack Reynor. The list was long and broad, but above all else, the list was not enticing. A majority of fans had no preference, because Harrison Ford is Han Solo. Disney just dropped the final list of candidates to play Mr. Solo, and it’s quite satisfying.

  • Milles Teller (Whiplash)
  • Ansel Elgor (The Fault in Our Star)
  • Emory Cohen (Brooklyn)
  • Alden Ehrenreich (Hail Caesar!)
  • Jack Reynor (Transformers: Age of Extinction)
  • Taron Egerton (Kingsman: The Secret Service)
  • Jack O’Connel (Unbroken)
  • Blake Jenner (Glee)

The list of eight actors is in no particular order. Fan favorite Taron Egerton made the cut, and talent like Alden Ehrenreich was added to the narrowed list. The untitled Han Solo movie won’t be released until 25 May 2018, so directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller have time to make their final decision.
