The Sexy Scoundrels of Star Wars Are Going Solo

This week, the Walt Disney Co. revealed plans to make a number of spin-off movies set in the Star Wars universe in addition the upcoming new trilogy. The first two projects currently being evaluated are films based on the fan-favorite bounty hunter Boba Fett and a young Han Solo saga—which could spawn a trilogy of its own. Little more is known about the spin-offs at this time, but the possibility of a movie based on the early days of our favorite wisecracking smuggler from a galaxy far, far away has the geek-osphere already playing guessing games with who should step into Harrison Ford’s boots. Personally, I think an unknown actor would be the best choice, but Newsarama has posted an interesting top 10 list of potential casting candidates that’s worth checking out.
