<img src="https://https://static2.srcdn.com/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2018/05/Han-Solo-Star-Wars-Story-Paul-Bettany.jpg" /><p>Paul Bettany says he landed his dream role in <em><strong><a href="https://screenrant.com/tag/han-solo/">Solo: A Star Wars Story</a></strong></em> with one lucky text.

One of these decisions involved re-casting the part of Dryden Vos, up until then a CG-creation described as "half-lion" and played by Michael K. Williams.
