While Woody Harrelson is one of the actors that lends a real credibility to the upcoming Han Solo spinoff film, Solo: A Star Wars Story, but if you can believe it, he originally turned down the role, as he revealed to Yahoo Entertainment in an interview for his upcoming film, LBJ.

“I actually turned it down at first. And then, I ended up doing it. I mean, I turned down Hunger Games twice, so this is no genius making these decisions.”

When asked about the reasons before turning down the role, he said:

“Honestly I’d been working, I’d done so many things back to back and I just wanted to go home. I was like, obviously this is something most actors would want to be a part of, but I just wanted to go home, so I decided not to do it.”

Of course, right now, we know that he now fills something of a mentor role for Han Solo, and he mentioned to the outlet that he’s “really glad” that he ended up signing onto the flick.

“Because I can’t imagine not knowing all those people I got to work with. Everybody who worked on that film was really cool… I get the feeling that it’s gonna be pretty great.”

Does Woody Harrelson’s involvement add to the overall appeal of Solo: A Star Wars Story? Let us know down below!
