Alden Ehrenreich Lands Coveted Role As Young Han Solo
American hottie Alden Ehrenreich has officially been cast as the young Han Solo in the hugely anticipated stand-alone “Star Wars” film from Disney.
A young actor with a short but really impressive rap sheet, Ehrenreich, starred in “Beautiful Creatures” (2013) and had a supporting role in Woody Allen’s “Blue Jasmine” (2013). He also appeared earlier this year in the Coen brothers’ film “Hail, Caesar!” As the story goes, he was reported discovered by acclaimed director Steven Spielberg at a bat mitzvah, and made his feature-film debut in Francis Ford Coppola’s ‘Tetro’.
Set to hit theatres in May 2018, the ‘Star Wars’ film will be directed by Phil Lord and Chris Miller, the filmmakers behind ‘The Lego Movie’ and ’21 Jump Street.’
