In the original Star Wars trilogy, Christopher Walken, Richard Dreyfuss, John Travolta, Robert De Niro, Kurt Russell, Sylvester Stallone, Al Pacino, and Nick Nolte were all considered for the role of the now iconic Han Solo. Lucas didn’t want to use actors from his other films, such as American Graffiti, but Harrison Ford walked away with part.

Still, you have to wonder … What the Hell kind of name is “Han Solo,” anyway?
