LucasFilm's upcoming Han Solo prequel film is set to hit theaters next year.
But according to a recent interview, the film almost didn't include one of its stars, Woody Harrelson.
Harrelson, whose role in the film was recently unveiled as Han Solo's mentor, Beckett, in the Star Wars anthology film, explained to The Hollywood Reporter that he initially turned down the role several times.
"I turned [the Han Solo movie] down twice," Harrelson revealed, "and [producer Allison Shearmur], wouldn’t take no for an answer.
" As it turns out, a similar pattern occurred with the fan-favorite actor's role in another popular franchise - Haymitch Abernathy in The Hunger Games films..
