Woody Harrelson May Be Joining the Star Wars Universe
The Star Wars universe may soon receive yet another fantastic actor. Variety reports that Woody Harrelson is the frontrunner to land the role as Han Solo's mentor in the upcoming Solo, uh, solo film. The film's cast is shaping up quite impressively, with Emilia Clarke and Donald Glover (as Lando Calrissian!) joining Alden Ehrenreich's titular flyboy. Harrelson would make a great addition to the film, as he's arguably one of the most versatile actors working today.

While his early days were full of comedies and dramas, he's been more active in big budget sci-fi films in recent years, such as the Hunger Games franchise, this year's War for the Planet of the Apes, and of course, Zombieland.

Disney's talks with the actor are still early, and nothing is official, but we're definitely excited about the possibility of Woody Harrelson in a Star Wars movie.
