Ten Guys Besides Me Who Could Possibly Pull Off a Young Han Solo

bill-swift - February 8, 2013

Earlier today we reported about the possible Han Solo solo movie (get it?) that Disney is possibly planning on rolling out as one of its spin-offs from the new Star Wars trilogy. Considering that the new trilogy will feature an older Han Solo, hopefully still played by Harrison Ford, a spin-off movie would most likely feature a younger version of the character, most likely set before he ever meets Luke Skywalker and Obi Wan Kenobi at Mos Eisley.

But as much as I want a Han Solo movie, it needs to be done right. He's actually one of the most complex characters from the Star Wars universe. He goes from a selfish rogue who only looks out for himself (and his Wookie partner) and only does heroics if the price is right, to a jealous scoundrel who wants to seduce a Princess, to a hero who is ready to throw his life down on the line to protect the ones he loves. He's funny, sarcastic, intense, supercilious, seductive, witty, aloof and incousiant. A pretty tall order.

So do any of these actors have the chops to pull all that off (while firing their blasters in front of a green screen)?
