A few months back it was reported that Disney was looking at over 200 actors for the role of young Han Solo in Phil Lord and Chris Miller’s Star Wars spinoff, narrowing the list down to 12 names, including Miles Teller and Neighbors star Dave Franco. That shortlist has become even shorter, with Hail, Caesar! star Alden Ehrenreich reportedly emerging as the frontrunner, while guys like Franco and Teller are now off the table. A new interview with Franco basically confirms this, as the actor opens up about the audition process and the difficulties of finding the right person to step into Harrison Ford’s iconic shoes.

Han Solo ‘Star Wars’ Spinoff Will Explore Chewbacca’s Origins

Phil Lord and Chris Miller’s young Han Solo movie won’t arrive in theaters until 2018, which means we have quite a bit of time before we see anything concrete from the Star Wars spinoff. Lucasfilm hasn’t even announced who will play the young version of Harrison Ford’s iconic character — much less who or what else we might see in the film. We now know of at least one other character who will appear opposite whoever ends up piloting the Millennium Falcon, and it’s a friendly, furry face you’ll be quite happy to see.

Ansel Elgort, Dave Franco and Miles Teller Among the Many Auditioning For ‘Han Solo’ Movie

With Star Wars: The Force Awakens just about two weeks ago, it may seem strange to now look ahead to a Star Wars film that isn’t coming out until May, 2018, but when that film is Phil Lord and Chris Miller’s Han Solo spinoff, you’ll forgive us for jumping out ahead. Though filming on the Han Solo project isn’t expected to begin for over a year, Lord and Miller have already started auditioning a slew of young Hollywood actors for the project and some of the names may surprise you.

Here Kid, Here’s Some Han Solo Facts You Might Not Know

So much of Han Solo’s appeal is due to Harrison Ford’s portrayal of the legendary smuggler. It’s an iconic character elevated by an iconic performance. But it almost didn’t happen. Early in the development of Star Wars, Han Solo was a big, green-skinned alien Jedi with gills and no nose.
