    Given that they’ve already started making the thing, isn’t it about time they nailed down the final cast?!

      They nailed down the final cast a while ago in all likelihood; they’re only ANNOUNCING this now.

        Pretty much this. Remember that Lupita and Gwendoline weren’t part of the initial announcement, either.

        The title of this editorial does imply otherwise!
        The implication is that the chap hasn’t yet signed on the dotted line although this point is practically mute because it seems likely the signature is imminent.

    He was brilliant on ‘Boardwalk Empire’! This bodes well for the film, having such solid players…

      I agree. And in the recent “The Night Of” too (brilliant show). Strong presence for the movie.

    Why does this movie have so many characters?

      The primary cast that’s currently been announced are fewer than the primary cast of RO. Or TFA, for that matter.

        Oh yeah, I know. I’m just wondering why a Han Solo movie would have such a large supporting cast. I guess we’ll see.

          Seems like they want to stick with Star Wars still being an ensemble piece as all the movies are regardless of rather its a stand alone story or a saga film.
