Alden Ehrenreich And Donald Glover Talk About Star Wars Spin-Off Film

Star Wars newcomers Alden Ehrenreich and Donald Glover got candid about the upcoming Han Solo spin-off film.

Set to play Han Solo and Lando Calrissian respectively in the film, Ehrenreich and Glover spoke in separate interviews about their experiences getting said roles. Both actors appeared very excited about the project, with Glover calling his casting a “very big deal” as well as one that he was “very honored” to undergo:

“I had an audition process that went on for a long time, and I got to spend a lot of time with the guys who are directing the film,” he said. “Getting to be around them and being around the world a little bit has been the main experience so far. I did my audition on the Millennium Falcon for one of my screen tests, which was pretty cool.”

Asked if he could describe the audition process more, Ehrenreich added: “It was pretty fun, because I enjoyed the material a lot. Last year I read for the directors, then came to England and did a test on the Falcon, then came back and did a couple more screen tests in Los Angeles.”

The actor said that he has not met Harrison Ford yet and hasn’t communicated with him about the role, but did say he’s been a fan for a long time.

When I'm not working towards my certificate in Radio and Television/Video Production at Fullerton College, I enjoy reading (horror, science fiction, and historical/political nonfiction are particular favorites), participating in my school's TV and theatre clubs, attending movie screenings, plays, concerts, and other events, and trying to come up with pithy things to say on social media. Believe it or not, there are occasions where I find time to write for my own leisure.
