Did the One Direction singer audition to play a younger version of everyone's favorite Star Wars space smuggler, or is he just pretending to be a scruffy-looking nerf herder?

Could Harry Styles have been our young Han Solo? Well, that's certainly a pervasive rumor one which Graham Norton attempted to unpack once and for all on Friday's show. Of course, Harry remained tight-lipped about the whole thing, but he did kind of smile? And he did a weird thing with his lips? In any event, this is a two-minute video of Harry Styles' face, so you really have no reason not to watch it. Read more...

We'll take any excuse to intently stare at Harry Styles ' mug! The Sign of the Times singer stopped by The Graham Norton Show on Friday and played a game that didn't seem very fun... for him, at least. The former One Direction star had to listen to a series of rumors that have been floating around about him over the years and, using only his facial expressions, confirm or deny each one! VOTE: Did Harry Rip Off Ever Since New York ? Harry didn't speak out on every rumor, but his face did give away clues as to whether or not he auditioned to play the young Han Solo, had a sexual tryst with Barack Obama , or caught an STD from a koala. (He only denied one of those three, BTW.) Watch the late night lie detector test (below) to find out all of Harry's secrets! [ Image via YouTube . ]

I dont know what it means. Paris Hilton Coming back. Whether you like it or not. Olivia Wilde Theres always a very famous, really attractive actress on the list who is not actually influential at all. The Weeknd Not Drake-famous, but still. Drake Drake-famous, so... Ryan Gosling Gosling has never been on the Time 100, which doesnt make any sense. This year he stars in Blade Runner and then he will play Neil Armstrong. This injustice ends here. Phil Lord and Chris Miller Not only are they directing that Han Solo Star Wars movie, and producing more Lego and Jump Street movies, but theyre friends of mine and really nice and I will fight to get them on this list. Diego Luna Hes not only in the Star Wars movies, but in 2018 hell star in the Coen Brothers Scarface . The movie wont be out before the 2018 Time 100 comes out, so maybe hes on the 2019 list.

“When there’s 18 people in a race, it’s a bar brawl and no one knows what to look at. But when it’s one-on-one, it’s easier for voters to understand and easier to define it.” Already, Ossoff has faced millions of dollars in attacks from Republican outside groups, which sounded the alarm that he was a threat to win the district last month after he began advertising heavily on TV. Three weeks ago, the National Republican Congressional Committee started spending $2.2 million on ads, casting Ossoff as “too liberal” for the district and a “rubber-stamp” for House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi. Congressional Leadership Fund, the major GOP super PAC focused on House races, also switched its message from early ads mocking Ossoff for dressing up as Han Solo in college. The later ads attacked Ossoff on his resume, saying he inflated his credentials as a national security staffer for Rep.

No entertainment company on Earth loves to play the cat-and-mouse game of spoilers with its fans like Lucasfilm doesespecially when it's for charity. SEE ALSO: Yes, you can appear in the Han Solo movie Star Wars Celebration came and went last week with nary a word announced about the untitled Han Solo movie currently being filmed.

“Let’s make it happen,” Jackson said directly to Kennedy. “All you gotta do is say the word.” Ford sticks the landing Ford’s unexpected appearance garnered the most enthusiastic response from the thousands of fans in the convention center. “I can’t believe we managed to keep it a secret considering you landed your plane” on Interstate 4, Davis joked when the applause died down. “It was a good landing,” Ford said, smiling. The actor has historically had a tenuous relationship with the fandom around his character Han Solo, but he appeared genuinely happy to reminisce Thursday about the lasting legacy of Lucascreation. Lucas said he had worked with Ford on American Graffiti when he gave Ford the part because it was about “spaceships and flying” and he could fly. Ford, quoting another of his iconic characters, Indiana Jones, quipped back, “Fly? Yes.

ORLANDO Star Wars, a franchise that's full of myths, has developed a few myths about its own improbable creation over the years. One of them was just repeated by Star Wars creator George Lucas himself. It's about how Harrison Ford was hired to play Han Solo in the first place. But the version of the story Lucas told, on a Star Wars Celebration panel Thursday celebrating the original movie's upcoming 40th anniversary, was immediately contradicted by Ford, who happened to be sitting right next to him.

Another involves a battle with the nightwatcher worm, a creature with glowing eyes who was seen only briefly in The Force Awakens , lifting its head out of the sand. He eats junk on Jakku and has an appetite for BB-8, Beck says. Another short takes place aboard the Millennium Falcon with Han Solo, Chewbacca, and Finn as Rey tries to disarm an explosive tracking device hidden aboard the craft by Unkar Plutt. What we love about Rey is her mechanical skills, and she knows this ship as well as our other heroes, Beck says. A Princess Leia short set just before the battle of Hoth was literally inspired by a deleted scene from The Empire Strikes Back , in which she, C-3PO, R2-D2, and Chewbacca face down a ferocious Wampa whos trapped inside the Rebel ice base. Leia saves the day and rescues Chewie, so we get to see her leadership in play, Beck says.

Despite the presence of Princess Leia, Queen Amidala, Rey, and Jyn Erso on our screens, it can't be said often enough: the Star Wars franchise isn't just for boys. That point will be driven home this summer by a new initiative called Star Wars: Forces of Destiny . It's a series of toys and cartoons, aimed at a younger demographic, where the women of Star Wars take center stage. SEE ALSO: We could learn a lot about 'The Last Jedi' and new Han Solo movie this weekend Narrated by Maz Kanata (Lupita Nyong'o), Forces of Destiny will offer 16 animated shorts, each around three minutes long, which will be available online and on the Disney Channel beginning in July.
