Brie Larson accidentally started a rumor that Danny DeVito is in the new Han Solo movie
Noted Star Wars superfan (and one of our personal favorite humans) Brie Larson met the cast of the untitled Han Solo film — and accidentally started a major rumor in the process. The Room actress recently reunited with her The Glass Castle costar Woody Harrelson in London at a screening for the upcoming film, which Harrelson’s Han Solo costars attended.
Larson took to Twitter to share photos with the cast of the Star Wars standalone film, including Harrelson, Alden Ehrenreich , Donald Glover, Emilia Clarke, Phoebe Waller-Bridge…and Danny DeVito?
The photos went viral as fans took to the internet to see if Danny DeVito was secretly cast in the upcoming film.
After much speculation, it seems DeVito is not starring in the upcoming Han Solo film, which follows the iconic Star Wars character through his early days as a smuggler. Larson confirmed that like her, he was also just a fan but we sort of think he would be incredible as a crime boss on the hunt for Han — a young Jabba, as one user suggested. There’s always a (potential) sequel!
Okay, we’re a *little* disappointed that DeVito (and Larson) won’t be making an appearance on the Millennium Falcon next year, but we do love their enthusiasm in hanging out with the cast. Sometimes we forget that celebrities are just like as and get excited to meet their favorite actors, too. We wonder if Brie asked about the directing shakeup or offered herself and Danny up to play extras. And because they were also hanging out with the Mother of Dragons, herself, Emilia Clarke, we hope *someone* tried to get a Game of Thrones spoiler out of her.
The Glass Castle lands in theaters next week!
