Nicholas Hoult

Nicholas Hoult

We already know there’s a little Beast in Nicholas Hoult, but what about scruffy-looking nerfherder? Jack the Giant Slayer didn’t really pan out for Hoult, but the actor has proven that he’s fine in the franchise department in the X-Men prequel films, not to mention his wild role in Mad Max: Fury Road. If you need some more convincing that Hoult could be great as Han Solo, I’d recommend seeing Young Ones.

Sam Claflin

Sam Claflin

A fan favorite of The Hunger Games franchise, Claflin is a pretty dashing young man with the right attitude to bring Han Solo to life. It feels like we’ve only gotten a taste of what he can do as an actor. The only snag might be that Claflin was rumored for a role in Star Wars: Rogue One, so he might already be involved in a galaxy far, far away.

Ryan Gosling

Ryan Gosling

The actor has actively avoided any franchise roles, but if there’s one major role that would be perfect for Gosling, it’s Han Solo. For some reason I feel like if you combined his character from Crazy Stupid Love with his character from Drive that you’d have a great blend of Han Solo. That sounds crazy just writing it down, but I think you know what I mean.

Zac Efron

Zac Efron

For some reason, this guy still has his haters from his High School Musical days, but I think Zaf Efron has proven himself to be quite the talented actor both in comedy and drama. Efron has yet to venture into action territory though, so we’re not sure how he’d fare in the Star Wars universe. But he’s certainly got the magnetism to take on the role of Han Solo.

Jamie Bell

Jamie Bell

Here’s another forthcoming superhero on the verge of greatness. Jamie Bell has taken some key roles in films like King Kong, Jumper and Snowpiercer, not to mention the motion-capture lead in The Adventures of Tintin, but he’s yet to catch on as a big star. That could change after he plays The Thing in Fantastic Four, but Bell really deserves a role like Han Solo to show audiences what he can really do.
