http://movieweb.com/han-solo-and-boba-fett-to-get-stand-alone-star-wars-movies/Earier this week, Disney CEO Bob Iger confirmed that Disney and Lucasfilm were working on a series of one shot movies that would be based on popular preexisting characters in the Star Wars universe, and that these movies would launch alongside Star Wars: Episode VII and the new trilogy that is being shepherded by director J.J. Abrams.
Rumored to be in the works is an Untitled Star Wars Han Solo Spin-Off and an Untitled Star Wars Boba Fett Spin-Off. While Boba Fett wears a helmet most of the time, no one is concerned about the casting of this iconic character, especially since Temuera Morrison, who played Jango Fett and father to Boba in Star Wars: Episode II - Attack of the Clones 3D is old enough, and ready to take on the role. It's Han Solo that has everyone worried. There has been much speculation as to who might play him, with actors like Zac Efron and Joseph Gordon-Levitt being thrown around. Harrison Ford was a relative unknown when he originated the part of Han in 1977, and a lot of people would like to see another unknown take the part.
Enter Anthony Ingruber, who has auditioned for the role via Youtube. We have his video, and the kid definitely evokes a young Harrison Ford/Han Solo. He may need some acting lessons before stepping on set, but that hasn't ever stopped anyone from being in a Star Wars movie before (we're looking at you, Jake Lloyd). If anything, this video proves that there is a Han Solo out there somewhere. If not this guy, then maybe someone else can pull it off. Take a look at his audition and let us know what you think.
