Who Should Star in the Young Han Solo Movies?

By

When The Force Awakens hits theaters on Friday, it’ll kick off a whole new generation of Star Wars films. There’s already a prequel in the works about a young Han Solo, helmed by Chris Miller and Phil Lord of The Lego Movie. Looks like everything really is awesome! (The song!)

The only question is: Who should play young Han Solo? Over 2,000 actors are reportedly in the running to take on an iconic role defined by one of the planet’s biggest movie stars. But who could possibly pull it off? For that matter, as other prequels gear up, who can play young versions of all the original gang? Miller, Lord, Abrams, and Disney are turning toward Hollywood. But we have another suggestion: Why not Vine? What better way to pack the seats at a screening than by casting a handful of corn-fed teenagers whose six-second videos of pranks have earned them legions of adolescent fans? Before you say “no way,” check out our dream casting:
