Jodie Foster and Melissa McCarthy Stole the Young Han Solo Auditions


From Conan’s Team Coco, here’s a quickie before you jump in bed tonight … a quick funny, that is. This mostly stupid reel of comedy talent doing fake auditions to play young Han Solo in the Star Wars anthology film does have a couple of high points (*cough* women *cough*). Riffing off that Hollywood Reporter piece that claimed basically every actor in Hollywood was auditioning for the part, everyone from Ghostbusters’ Melissa McCarthy to a couple Valley boys, and from our beloved Jeff Goldblum to that idiot Sandler (seriously, just FF through him), everyone gives their best worst Harrison Ford impressions (Hader’s Jabba is a thing of beauty).

Unsurprisingly, the ladies win it all.







And that’s why Alden Ehrenreich got the part. Simple!

    I loved this video. I’m still not sold on the movie. I might be more likely to watch it if they hired MM, JF, or KN

  • I think Abby would watch Goldblum as young Han. If only because Abby would watch Goldblum in anything

  • Jodie Foster and Adam Sandler perfectly encapsulate the difference between “not giving a fuck” and “not giving a shit”.

    Foster does not give a fuck.

    Sandler, sadly, does not give a shit.

      I mean, they were all doing a shtick, but Sandler doing that dumb Sandler voice that he does… Ugh. Tired.

      • I found the two seconds where he was in plain clothes and clearly had no interest in doing the bit was more entertaining.
