Actor Anthony Ingruber called in to talk about his experience working on Age of Adaline. The young actor earned the role in the film because of his uncanny resemblance to Harrison Ford, and his Youtube impression from 2008.

The director of Age of Adaline, Lee Toland Krieger, reached out to Ingruber after watching the impersonation. The video in question currently sits at half a million views and and has cultivated a loyal and vocal fanbase for Ingruber.

“It was such a crazy turn of events that the director of Age of Adaline, Lee Toland Krieger stumbled upon my Youtube videos, in particular being the Harrison Ford one of course. After a Skype chat with him and a live audition, he offered me the part. It was a very strange, “one in a million sort of shot.” The odds of Harrison Ford playing that guy, then meeting that guy, and the guy being me was just crazy but really wonderful,” said Ingruber.

Before Age of Adaline fans were impressed with Anthony Ingruber’s Han Solo impersonation, but after Lucasfilm announced in July they are working on Star Wars Anthology: Han Solo, the internet exploded with fan support for Ingruber to be cast as a young Han. Several months have passed since the announcement of the film, and we checked in with Ingruber to see if he’s had conversations with Lucasfilm.

“Well that’s the thing about this industry you can’t really say anything until it is time to announce something. Again, I’m not saying there is anything to announce. I’m definitely trying my hardest to at least get a shot at it , because it would be amazing and it’s something I’d love to do. I’m working towards making it happen, fingers crossed,” said Ingruber.

Star Wars Anthology: Han Solo will be directed by Phil Lord and Chris Miller and is scheduled for release on May 25th, 2018.

Age of Adaline is available now on DVD, Blu-ray, and VOD.
