Woody Harrelson Reveals His Star Wars Character is Named Beckett

By: Dominic Jones

Woody Harrelson has finally revealed his character name in the upcoming Young Han Solo film.  Harrelson appeared on The Tonight Show where he revealed to host Jimmy Fallon that he is playing a character named "Beckett".  He also described his character as "kind of a criminal and a mentor".  When pressed for more information, he threw his arms in the air and said he could say no more.  Check out the video below,

This interview puts to bed the bizarre story that Woody was playing the character "Gariss Shrike" from the old Legends novels.  Harrelson has said in the past that his character would be a mentor to the young Han Solo, played by Alden Ehrenreich in the film.

The untitled young Han Solo film hits theaters on May 25th, 2018 and stars Alden Ehrenreich (Hail Caesar!) as Han Solo, Donald Glover (Atlanta) as Lando Calrissian, Emilia Clarke (Game of Thrones), Woody Harrelson (True Detective), Phoebe Waller-Bridge (Fleabag), Thandie Newton (Westworld), and Michael K. Williams (The Wire).  The film is directed by Phil Lord and Chris Miller (The Lego Movie), with a script by Lawrence and Jon Kasdan.
