Ansel Elgort

Ansel Elgort

You may not think much of Ansel Elgort since he’s best known for a role in the sappy romance The Fault in Our Stars, but I have a feeling our perception of the young actor will change once we see him in Edgar Wright’s next project Baby Driver. He’s even got a similar look to a young Harrison Ford, right down to the slightly lanky physique.

Brenton Thwaites

The rising star did a good job in the indie sci-fi flick The Signal, and since then he’s taken on the underwhelming adaptation of The Giver, and a supporting role in Maleficent. But in 2017, he’ll get a big boost from Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales. If he impresses the right people at Disney, taking a role as Han Solo could be in his future. He’s the right age, and he’s another actor who has some similar features to a young Harrison Ford.

Miles Teller

Since Han Solo is a bit of a cocky pilot, who better than Miles Teller to tell more of the smuggler’s story? Teller has risen to fame rather quickly over the past few years, leading the Oscar-nominated Whiplash, leading fantastic indies like The Spectacular Now and also landing a lead franchise role in Fantastic Four. I’m not entirely convinced that he’d fit the role all that well, but surely he’ll be on a shortlist at some point.

Liam Hemsworth

Even though he hasn’t been given much to do in The Hunger Games franchise, Liam Hemsworth is about to see plenty of action in Independence Day: Resurgence. It’ll be some good training for piloting the Millennium Falcon, but we’ll have to wait until we see the sci-fi sequel to see if he has the screen presence and charisma to play Han Solo. He’s certainly got that handsome part locked down.

Scott Eastwood

He’s the son of Dirty Harry, and he just got done charming the hell out of Britt Robertson in The Longest Ride. But it remains to be seen if he’s got the chops to take on a blockbuster. Eastwood will have a supporting role in Suicide Squad, so maybe this could be the start of a much bigger career for him. He certainly has some work to do in order to get out from under the shadow of his father.
