Star Wars' Young Han Solo Casting Search Brings In Tons of Stars!

The hunt to play a young Han Solo, the role originated by Harrison Ford in the original Star Wars films, has heated up and apparently about 2,500 actors have met with or put themselves on tape to star in the new films.

There is plenty of time to make the choice, as the next Star Wars film will not begin shooting until January 2017 for a May 25, 2018 release date.

Dave Franco, 30, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, 25, Miles Teller, 28, Jurassic World‘s Nick Robinson, 20, Harry Potter‘s Tom Felton, 28, Gossip Girl‘s Ed Westwick, 28, and The Fault in Our StarsAnsel Elgort, 21, are all on the list of guys who have auditioned.

THR, who revealed just a small portion of the list, notes that the efforts to get a well known actor for the role of young Han are different than J.J. Abrams‘ casting choices for Star Wars: The Force Awakes. J.J. chose relative newcomers Daisy Ridley and John Boyega for his leading roles.

The 28-year-old actor also appeared on Good Morning America earlier in the day.

“The character is so multi-layered, so it was a real challenge of a part,” Ed said when discussing his role.

When asked about his attraction to the “bad boy” roles such as this new part and his Gossip Girl character Chuck Bass, Ed said, “I don’t think [he's] a bad boy. This guy’s a straight up monster. So it’s very different from being a bad boy.”
