Disney have confirmed that the Veteran film and television actor Woody Harrelson, will be starring in the upcoming Han Solo movie, which is set to arrive in theaters next year.
Woody Harrelson, has appeared in many roles in film and TV such as The Hunger Games, No Country For Old Men, True Detective, Cheers, and Zombieland. Woody will join actors Alden Ehrenreich (Han Solo), Donald Glover (Lando Calrissian), and Emilia Clarke in the adventure.
Following Rogue One, the new Han Solo movie is the second in a series of films within the “A Star Wars Story” brand that live outside the Skywalker family saga, and is set during the early scoundrel days of the iconic characters, prior to A New Hope.
“We couldn’t be more excited to work with an artist with as much depth and range as Woody,” said the film’s directors Phil Lord and Christopher Miller. “His ability to find both humor and pathos, often in the same role, is truly unique. He is also very good at ping pong.”
