Hugh Jackman On Taron Egerton Possibly Playing Young Han Solo: 'He's Capable Of Anything'

Hugh Jackman is all smiles while attending a special screening and press conference for his latest film Eddie The Eagle held at the Royal Monceau Hotel on Monday (March 21) in Paris, France.

The 47-year-old actor was joined by his co-star Taron Egerton and their director Dexter Fletcher as they sat down for a special Q&A following the screening of the flick.

Hugh recently opened up about his thoughts on Taron, 26, possibly playing Han Solo in the next Stars Wars film.

“It’s big shoes to fill. Here is what I can tell you about Taron. After watching him in Kingsman and then seeing him on-set doing Eddie The Eagle, which Eddie The Eagle itself I would say there are very few actors who can pull that role off, but being able to do both, I think he’s capable of anything. By the way, if its a musical of Han Solo, he can sing too, and I am also Taron‘s agent.”
