On This Day: July 23, 1961


By Ciaran Duggan,

Woody Harrelson, who set to star as Beckett in the upcoming untitled Han Solo film, was born on this day in 1961.

The American actor has described his role in the film as a "mentor to Han Solo" and "a bit of a criminal."

Earlier this year the former directors of the Han Solo movie, Phil Lord and Chris Miller, said they were excited to work with an artist that had as much depth and range as Harrelson

They said: "His ability to find both humor and pathos, often in the same role, is truly unique."
