Michael Kenneth Williams (The Wire) was among the most exciting cast members to join the still untitled Han Solo film. Unfortunately, the actor revealed in an interview with Deadline that his role has been cut from the film. Williams told Deadline, “When Ron Howard got hired to finish out the film, there were some reshoot issues that needed to be done in regards to my character, in order for it to match the new direction which the producers wanted Ron to carry the film in.” Williams is currently filming The Red Sea Diving Resort in South Africa and was unavailable for the reshoots. Instead of pushing back the Han Solo film to accommodate his schedule, Williams’ role was cut altogether. His character was described as “half-human, half-animal.” Head over to Deadline to read the full interview!
