Re: Han Solo Will Return
Yeah, that's why I'm skeptical of a young Han spinoff because we all love Han because of Ford. It's his nuances and unique 'everyman' qualities that made him special, and I think most of his 'ruggedness' came from his background in carpentry/construction.
Look at Chris Pine. I like the guy but he lacks what Ford has because Pine looks too handsome that it's unsettling. That and he's only a few notch from being generic. Lukily he had very strong scenes in Star Trek that made me like him in the long run. Also: That's why people are drawn to Karl Urban as McCoy more; he's manly but relatable.
