Aaron Paul Tweets About Those Young Han Solo Movie Rumors

"Less than twelve parsecs, bitch!"

The other day we posted a somewhat surprising rumor—that Breaking Bad’s Aaron Paul was up for the role of a young Han Solo in one of the standalone Star Wars films on the way. While actors don’t often confirm or deny things like this until they’re set in stone, Paul did feel compelled enough to say something about it.

Paul recently stood in for Luke in Jason Reitman’s Empire Strikes Back live read and as much as I enjoy the actor, something tells me if a young Han film is definitely happening, he won’t be the one to land the gig.
