The Daily Heat Index: Alden Ehrenreich Is Officially The New Han Solo
Plus: Vin Diesel teases the return of Xander Cag, and Alicia Vikander shines in a new ‘Jason Bourne’ clip.
Here’s a daily dose of what’s heating up the internet:
Your New Han Solo
Even though the Hail, Caesar! star was cast a few months back, up-and-comer Alden Ehrenreich made his big debut in all Han Solo glory during last week’s huge Star Wars Celebration in Europe. “I read the sides and I loved them,” Alden said. “I auditioned for six months. The coolest part was I went on the Falcon for a chemistry test with Chewbacca. It was unbelievable. It was more exciting than nerve-racking.” Check out Phil Lord and Chris Miller’s first choice when Han Solo’s on-screen outing hits theaters May 25, 2018.

Xander Cage Returns
Ahead of the full trailer debut of xXx: The Return of Xander Cage on Tuesday, star Vin Diesel teased a short video over the weekend with the appropriate quote, “Damn, it feels good to be back.” We definitely agree.
