Han Solo was almost played by Al Pacino?

June 4th, 2013 by Edwin Torres Jr Comments

 Can you imagine anyone else playing Han Solo in Star Wars? Yeah me neither, but it almost happened! Al Pacino said it recently during An Evening With Al Pacino. The actor revealed that he was first offered the part before it went to Harrison Ford. So why did he pass? Here’s what he said:

“It was mine for the taking, but I didn’t understand the script.”

Can you imagine Scarface as Han Solo?
