Woody Harrelson on Star Wars, Jack Nicholson and Having Trust Issues #HanSoloEvent

Woody Harrelson SOLO #HanSoloEvent

Woody Harrelson doesn’t trust me. The prolific actor has come quite a long way from his bartending days on TV’s Cheers.

Alden Ehrenreich – The Young Han Solo Interview

SOLO Alden Ehrenreich

He may play one of the greatest scoundrels of all time, but Alden Ehrenreich is every bit as nice as he is humble.
