    I hear Alden Ehrenreich is every bit the actor that George Lazenby was.

    Quick, name Lazenby's top ten films!

    Why not just release the trailer today?

    That would be a REALLY expensive spot during the Superbowl.

    I'm probably being petty in another thread.

    I saw the teaser. I can't say it looked all that inspiring.

    Full trailer... finally. I'm not sure anyone will be able to get past the truly horrendous casting here. I mean, a lot of this looks good, but it is really hard to get past how awkward Alden Ehrenriech looks in every frame of that trailer.
    I don't know what you are doing right now, but if you aren't listening to the DBR Podcast, you're doing it wrong.

    Agreed. It doesn't bode well that I am more excited for Lando than Han.

    I told a friend earlier, it is like they said "oh hey, this actor can smirk! Han smirks! Book it!"

    Who would have been the ideal casting for young Han?

    Chris Pratt IMMEDIATELY comes to mind. He's got the confident swagger combined with a bit of mischeviousness that would make him perfect.

    ...but something tells me he was busy with his roles on Guadians and Jurrasic World.

    Christopher Pine I think could have made a fine choice as well.

    How young does the actor need to be? Ehrenreich is 28 (though he looks younger, I think) so I'm gonna say anyone who looks like they are comfortably in their 20s is in the running.

    I think Nicholas Hoult could have been really good for it. You could not take your eyes off him in Fury Road. Miles Teller is arguably the best under-30 actor alive today after Whiplash and utterly transformed himself for Bleed For This so I would trust him to figure out how to make a young Han work. Liam Hemsworth did some nice work in Hunger Games films that makes me think he could pull it off. Ezra Miller may be too busy with Flash stuff, but he's pretty good.

    Most importantly, I would have brought all these folks in and had them read and read and read several scenes to make sure I was getting the right guy. This is young Han Solo! You cannot screw this up and anyone in Hollywood would kill to get this role.

    Ansel Elgort (Baby) would have been an intriguing choice as well.

    I remember wanting it to be Joseph Gordon-Levitt when the announcement was initially made, but realized he was probably a tad to old.

    I could get behind pretty much anyone mentioned, except for Miles Teller. Maybe it was the Rolling Stones profile (believe this is the one) I read on him, but I've never really enjoyed his work.

    This.

    You have a future as a casting director for all the movies as I see them in my head.

    I thought about Elgort, no one loved Baby Driver as much as I did, but I think he's a little too soft looking. We need someone who has led a rugged life and isn't at all a pretty-boy (the movie probably needs a scene where he gets a nasty cut on his face, to account for Harrison's iconic scar.

    You mean the self-inflicted scar from the space-whip?

    But we already know how he got his scar!
