It’s been a few weeks since LucasFilm President Kathleen Kennedy announced that Alden Ehrenreich would be playing the part of young Han Solo in the upcoming Star Wars spinoff Han Solo: A Star Wars Story. Now Thanks to Conan O’Brien we get to see which other stars auditioned for the role, and the results are hilarious.
The auditions, that were taped for Conan O’Brien’s show, are obviously part of a skit and really funny, as we get to see celebrities like Will Arnet, Jeff Goldblum and Jodie Foster auditioning for the role. Even Bill Hader auditions and ends up doing a really great young Jabba the Hut impression. Seeing how these celebrities mess up and butcher such famous lines as “It’s the ship that made the Kessel Run in less than twelve parsecs”, will surely get you smiling, giggling and laughing out loud.
No other cast members have been announced for the upcoming Han Solo movie. It has however been revealed that the story will take place 10 years before A New Hope, and is said to be an origin movie of sorts. Currently, the film has a May 2018 release date as production is set to begin in January 2017.
