Disney and LucasFilm have auditioned over 2,500 actors for the role of a young Han Solo.

They have narrowed the list down to about a dozen actors according to Variety‘s sources, with the following being mentioned. Miles Teller(Whiplash), Ansel Elgort(The Fault in Our Stars), Dave Franco(21 Jump Street), Jack Reynor(Transformers: Age of Extinction), Scott Eastwood(Suicide Squad), Logan Lerman(Fury), Emory Cohen(The Place Beyond the Pines), and Blake Jenner(Glee).

Although Blake Jenner and Scott Eastwood certainly look the part of a young Han Solo, Miles Teller incredible performance in Whiplash should have him as shoe in for the role.
