Miles Teller Says He Auditioned For STAR WARS, Did He Test For Jacen Solo Or A Young Han Solo?
While there have been rumors linking young actor Miles Teller (Spectacular Now) as Mr. Fantastic in Fox's Fantastic Four reboot. Teller has seemingly teased being in the mix for another large franchise. While speaking to MTV (via DailySuperhero) the actor revealed he auditioned for the new Star Wars film. However, stating that he wants to play Han Solo but given that a prequel film is in the works anything is possible. I have to assume that he also tested for the role of Jacen Solo the twin brother of Jania Solo (expected to be main character alongside Ben Skywalker) who eventually turns to the darkside, becoming Darth Caedus. Caedus could eventually become the villain of the new trilogy if films are taking cues from the novels.
"I was putting the rumor out there for Han Solo. I don’t think that’s going to happen. I had an audition. It went pretty well, but I don’t think that’s going to happen."
