Unusual Suspects: The Criminals Of Solo: A Star Wars Story

Posted by Dustin on February 9, 2018 at 08:00 AM CST

Entertainment Weekly have posted another great article covering three new characters from Solo: A Star Wars Story.

Tobias Beckett — played by Woody Harrelson


“Well, he really shapes Han really more than anybody, as Han comes to realize that in a lawless time he needs to try to come to terms with some kind of moral code,” says director Ron Howard.

Screenwriters Lawrence and Jon Kasdan both re-read Robert Louis Stevenson’s Treasure Island before diving into the script, looking to create a similar mentor/apprentice relationship to the pirate Long John Silver and young Jim Hawkins.

In that story, Silver was a scoundrel who had been around nefarious circles for a while, but without any great success to his name.

Val — played by Thandie Newton


This character is a little more mysterious. We don’t have a lot of information about her, except that she carries a massive blaster that’s only slightly more intimidating that her scowl.

“She’s tied to Beckett, that’s how Han meets Val,” says Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy. “They’ve been partners a long time.”

Jon Kasdan calls Val “part of the criminal family that Han gets involved in.”

Dryden Vos — played by Paul Bettany


Here’s the successful crime boss. The Godfather. The debonair and sophisticated hoodlum.

We’ve seen the sleazy take on a gangland chief with Jabba the Hutt, but Vos will give us the handsome version of a figure who has found great success by breaking the rules — but isn’t the kind to get his hands dirty.

“It’s a sort of combination of class and swagger and real danger which I think is a fun thing, and he absolutely inhabits it,” says Jon Kasdan. “He’s way deeper in the crime world than anyone else that we meet in the movie.”
