MTV have spoken to two of the actors in the running to play Han Solo in the upcoming ‘young Solo’ movie at the Sundance Film Festival about the pressure of such a role.

Jack Reynor and Logan Lerman are two of the alleged eight actors in the running for the role every young actor in Hollywood is surely after.

“We’re talking about Harrison Ford. He’s no chump,” said Transformers: Age of Extinction’s Reynor. “You can’t do an imitation. You can’t try and just emulate what that is. It’s got to be something new. It’s also got to be something that the audience is going to respond to, [it] “would be kind of an incredible gig to get.” 

Percy Jackson himself, Logan Lerman simply said: “I don’t think I’d be intimidated.  It would just be fun.”

We don’t know about the guys, but the very thought of playing Solo has our palms sweating…

Let us know your thoughts, guys
