Disney’s Search for a Young Han Solo Is Coming to an End

Spoiler alert: It’s three more Hollywood white boys I can’t tell apart.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, a shortlist has emerged in Disney’s search for the young Han Solo. Tests were conducted last weekend in London on actors Alden Ehrenreich, Jack Reynor, and Taron Egerton to see just how fire resistant they are.

Or screen tests. Whatever.

You probably won’t recognize Alden Ehrenreich from the recent Coen Brothers’ film Hail, Caesar! because like 8 people saw that shit. The highlight of Jack Reynor’s sparkling resume is Transformers: Age of Extinction and Taron Egerton was in both The Kingsman and Eddie The Eagle.

To be real, no one knows anything for sure. Disney has declined to comment. Every white kid that’s been in any kind of movie anyone has heard of in the past four years has been rumored to be a possible Han Solo. Everybody from the kid in The Fault In Our Stars to Oscar-nominated Brooklyn‘s Emory Cohen have been rumored to be on deck.

Only one thing is certain. Whoever they pick, nerds will fucking hate him, probably.

“It’s three more white boys I can’t tell apart…”
Would love to see how this would be received if you replaced “white boys” with literally any other racial group, gender or ethnicity. Lovely to see such casually justified racism – I know it’s ok, right, cause their white? *rolls eyes*
