Michael K. Williams talks cut 'Star Wars' character, Ron Howard's 'SOLO' reshoots and more
Appearing on the Jim and Sam Show Tuesday morning, Michael K. Williams explained the unfortunate series of events that led to his Solo: A Star Wars Story character being cut from the film.
Williams was originally set to play the newly imagine character Dryden Vos, a human/cat hybrid gangster. When Ron Howard was brought in to re-shoot the film following the dismissal of Phil Lord and Chris Miller, Williams says Howard required a major overhaul of the Vos character. With a scheduling conflict with the upcoming The Red Sea Diving Resort making reshoots impossible, Williams was dropped from the film and Paul Bettany was brought in on short notice.
Here's Williams' full rundown of the exit.
