Rumors were floating around for some time that Woody Harrelson will be a part of the upcoming Han Solo film. Today, the official Star Wars website updated with the confirmation that he will indeed be in the film. Woody Harrelson is a veteran actor who is best known for his roles in the Hunger Games, Zombie Land, and more. Currently his role has not be revealed, however it is nice to see his inclusion in the film.
Directors Phil Lord and Christopher Miller had a short statement about his inclusion.
“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.”
The Han Solo film will premiere in 2018.
