    Isn't this a bit odd? Woody Harrelson is already 55 years old...

    Woody Harrelson has been officially cast in the currently untitled Star Wars spin-off about the young Han Solo.

    The film's co-directors, Phil Lord and Christopher Miller, said they "couldn't be more excited to work with an artist with as much depth and range".

    Donald Glover, who won a Golden Globe on Sunday for his US TV show Atlanta, will play the young Lando Calrissian opposite Alden Ehrenreich's Han.

    Emilia Clarke will also appear in the film, scheduled for release in 2018.

    The British actress is best known for her role as Daenerys Targaryen in Game of Thrones and also appeared in 2015's Terminator: Genysys.


    Harrelson, best known for playing barman Woody in Cheers, was more recently seen as Haymitch Abernathy in the four Hunger Games films.

    That's the first thing I reacted to when reading the topic title. What do they mean "the YOUNG Han Solo" - Woody Harrelson?! He's much older than Harrison Ford was in the original Star Wars trilogy.

    I can understand you Sarah...Woody has become a quite good actor lately in roles in TV projects such as "Game Change" and "True Detective". It´s impressive how he´s got to play different parts so well! The Alden guy is a too big-headed to me...though that seems to be in trend in these times. :re:

    I've got a bad feeling about this.
