So I’m late to the party – again. Apparently rumours are going around that Aaron Paul — popularly known as the popular thug Jesse Pinkman in Breaking Bad — will play a young Han Solo in the Star Wars spin-off movies. The rumour started after Paul played Luke in an live reading of Empire Strikes Back last month, according to Esquire.
The spin-off will fill the timeline before A New Hope and after Revenge of the Sith, according to reports.
Meanwhile Mr Pinkman has come out to refute the rumours, tweeting “who’s starting these rumors? This one is actually making me believe I have a job in 2015. Very exciting”.
So does the rumour have legs? We can only wait for further leaks and official news. Meanwhile, do you think the expletive-spewing Jesse Pinkman has the right amount of charm and scoundrel in him to play Han?
