'SOLO': INTRODUCING RIO DURANT!
Confidently taking the control reins of an Imperial Hauler vessel, the good-natured Ardennian alien mercenary/pilot Rio Durant (a terrific character name conceived by the Kasdans that wouldn't look out of place in a classic Humphrey Bogart B/W movie, for sure!) plays his part in the Conveyex transport heist, in a scene from the upcoming Solo: A Star Wars Story.
At home on and off screen as an actor and director, and now TV producer for an all-new STAR WARS live-action series for the not too distant future (set a short time after the events of Return of the Jedi), of which he'll also be penning half the episodes, the ever-talented and highly likeable Jon Favreau brings a fun simian-toned voice to Durant as seen in early teaser footage.
