    wow there will truly never be another harrison. this guy is very ugly I’m sad about this casting he looks nothing like han and he has a pinched face smh who’s dick is he sucking??!!!

    Hmmm. He’s a really good actor (he was so perfect in Hail Cesar). But I would have preferred Ansel Elgort ! First, he look like a young Harrison, he’s funny (which is the whole point with Han Solo), he’s a good actor with a potential of growth, and also it would have been fun because Ansel is a DJ under the name of Ansolo… (For the slow mind : Ansel + Han Solo = Ansolo. His love for the character is definitely there) Too bad, it would have been a perfect fit in my opinion.

    Dude, you have to watch Hail, Caesar! (he pretty much saved this dull film) to change your mind. He’s certainly not ugly (actually gorgeous) and has great potential and style. Give him a chance.
