With his brother Ron Howard now helming the upcoming Han Solo movie, the odds were good Clint Howard would have a role in the Star Wars spin-off.

Clint, the younger brother of Ron, began his acting career at the tender age of two, appearing on The Andy Griffith Show numerous times. He has also appeared in a number of Star Trek episodes and Arrested Development, a show which his brother narrates. Over the years, Clint has appeared in virtually every film his brother has directed, usually in a small role, but one that is always eagerly looked for by fans. It’s not yet clear in what capacity he’ll appear in the Han Solo movie.
Ron Howard, of course, took over the direction of the untitled Han Solo anthology movie after the departure of Phil Lord and Christopher Miller. The duo were released from the film after clashing with longtime Star Wars contributor, Lawrence Kasdan, and having creative differences from the studio.
The Han Solo spin-off movie stars Alden Ehrenreich, Donald Glover, Joonas Suotamo, Emilia Clare, Thandie Newton, Phoebe Waller-Bridge, Michael K. Williams, and Woody Harrelson.
Based off a script by Lawrence and Jon Kasdan, the Han Solo film stars Alden Ehrenreich as Han Solo, Donald Glover as Lando Calrissian, Joonas Suotamo as Chewbacca, Emilia Clarke, Thandie Newton, Phoebe Waller-Bridge, Michael K. Williams and Woody Harrelson. The as-yet-untitled Star Wars anthology film is scheduled to hit theaters on May 25, 2018.
