The ensemble cast of Han Solo: A Star Wars Story (not final title) just gained yet another member.
Variety is reporting that Ian Kenny, who is best known for his role in the 2016 film Sing Street, has officially joined the Star Wars anthology film. Aside from Sing Street, Kenny's filmography is relatively small, with a short film and a recurring role on the Irish television series Fair City being his other two credits.
It's unclear exactly what his role in the film will be - as is the case with much of the ensemble cast - but it is worth noting that he does bare some resemblance to the film's star, Alden Ehrenreich. While the recent hint from Disney CEO Bob Iger revealed that the film will chronicle the title character from ages eighteen to twenty-four, it wouldn't be completely implausible to see Kenny play a younger version of Han Solo - or someone tied to his family - in some sort of flashback.
Of course, that's purely speculation at this point, especially considering how little is known about the film, as well as the expansive amount of possibilities for characters in the Star Wars universe. Fans will just have to wait and see exactly what role Kenny plays within the film.
