The way 'Solo' star Alden Ehrenreich was discovered is crazy!
LOS ANGELES - Mazel Tov!
Solo: A Star Wars Story is the newest installment of the series and it hits theaters this weekend. Alden Ehrenreich will be playing the role of Han Solo and we’re finally learning the backstory of his breakthrough in Hollywood.
Steven Spielberg discovered him at the age of 14 years old in a Bat Mitzvah video. His first two movies after that were for Francis Ford Coppola. Casual.
It was Spielberg and Coppola who went on to recommend Ehrenreich for the role of Han Solo, and the rest is history. Not bad references to have at all!
