Irish actor Ian Kenny, best known for his roles as Barry Bray in John Carney’s critically acclaimed ‘Sing Street’ and TJ Deegan in ‘Fair City,’ has scored a supporting role in the untitled Han Solo movie.

The next movie in Lucasfilm and Disney’s series of standalone “Anthology” films, the untitled film picks up with Han Solo when he was 18 years old and takes him through when he was 24. Along the way, we will discover how Solo came to own the Millennium Falcon as well as how he met his Wookie sidekick, Chewbacca – played here by Finnish basketball player and actor Joonas Suotamo.

Kenny joins a cast that includes Alden Ehrenreich, Donald Glover, Emilia Clarke, Thandie Newton, Phoebe Waller-Bridge, Michael K. Williams, and Woody Harrelson.

Production is underway with Christopher Miller and Phil Lord directing from a script by Lawrence and Jon Kasdan.
