The Millennium Falcon made the Kessel Run in less than 12 parsecs, but no one ever said it was comfy in there.
The cast of the upcoming young Han Solo film — the latest A Star Wars Story spinoff — all piled into the ship for their first cast shot last month, and Woody Harrelson reports that being in the Falcon can get cramped.
“A little bit. I wouldn’t say it was roomy,” the actor laughs during an interview for his new comedy Wilson (in theaters Friday), in which he stars as the lovable title loner.
Harrelson is due back in England on Tuesday to continue filming his role, which is still under wraps. He says his character in the movie (out May 25, 2018) is both a mentor to young Han (Alden Ehrenreich) and a criminal. “I wouldn’t know who to compare him to necessarily.”
But so far, Harrelson really likes and is impressed by Ehrenreich: “He’s really talented, he’s really committed, he’s a really smart and capable actor. He reads a lot of books, he’s a bit of a cinephile. He went through a very intensive auditioning process and I think they came up with the perfect guy. He’s not out partying every night. He’s really focused.”
So far, it’s been a blast for Harrelson. “It’s going to be really good,” he says, adding that he’s loving working with “fantastic” directors Chris Miller and Philip Lord (The Lego Movie) and “awesome” castmates including Michael K. Williams, Emilia Clarke and Donald Glover. “We’ll try to make the best one.”
That means they’re coming for you, Empire Strikes Back!
