Top 10 Actors Who Could Play Young Han Solo in Star Wars Spin-Off

Who can make the Kessel Run in less than twelve parsecs?

Before we had more details about Disney's plans for its newly-acquired Star Wars movie franchise, we asked you who you thought would make a good replacement for Harrison Ford as Han Solo in the planned Star Wars: Episode VII movie. You chose Nathan Fillion by a wide margin — an excellent choice considering Joss Whedon based the character that Fillion played in Serenity on Han Solo — but the more we hear about Episode VII, the more we're convinced that Ford will be reprising the role himself. That doesn't mean that the hunt for Han Solo is over, however.

Last week, Disney announced that at least two spin-off movies set in the Star Wars universe are in development, in addition to the new trilogy that will begin with Episode VII. One of the spin-offs will be set between Revenge of the Sith and A New Hope and chronicle the adventures of Han Solo before his fateful meeting with Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill) and Obi-Wan Kenobi (Sir Alec Guinness) on Tatooine. Considering Ford was 35 when he played Solo for the first time, Disney will likely be looking to cast an actor in his 20's or early 30's, which puts Fillion, at 41, out of the running for the gig. Put on your thinking caps once again and help us to choose the best actor to play the smuggler, gambler and scoundrel who will one day woo a princess and help save the galaxy.
