Lucasfilm is about to release a Star Wars Han Solo Spinoff and with it comes the confirmation of Woody Harrelson joining the cast. They closed the deal last week though the production is yet to reveal his character.
Harrelson appeared in more than 20 movies. Some of his most famous appearances are for the films Natural Born Killers, The Hunger Games, Now You See Me, and Zombieland, to name a few.
The directors of Star Wars Han Solo Spinoff– Phil Lord and Christopher Miller- confirmed the news on Tuesday, via Entertainment Weekly. The actor will also join the famous Game of Thrones Emilia Clarke in the anticipated movie.
“We couldn’t be more excited to work with an artist with as much depth and range as Woody,” Lord and Miller said. “His ability to find both humor and pathos, often in the same role, is truly unique. He is also very good at ping pong.”
