After being a mentor to Katniss Everdeen in The Hunger Games, it looks like Woody Harrelson might join another epic franchise and guide another iconic character. 

According to Variety, there are other choices to play Han Solo's mentor but Harrelson is their top pick, and I think would be a blast to see him play a mentor to one of the most badass characters ever, but we know that mentors in Star Wars end up eventually dying on screen. It would be cool to see the character help Solo in the smuggling business though. 

If Harrelson ends up being cast, he will be joining Alden Ehrenreich, Donald Glover, and Emilia Clarke in the untitled Han Solo film directed by Phil Lord and Chris Miller.

The film is set to release in theaters on May 25, 2018.
