Keeping secrets in a galaxy far, far away isn’t always easy. Remember when Mads Mikkelsen signed a fan poster in September 2015 and listed his character’s name as Galen? He then later revealed the tidbit about Galen being Jyn’s father in a news segment. Oops. Woody Harrelson is finding himself in the same being asked questions about his metaphoricalÂ Star Wars shoes since Lucasfilm confirmed his role in the untitled Han Solo standalone film. And it seems like he just told us which character he’s playing.Neither Lucasfilm or Disney have offered specifics on Harrelson’s role, but when the report of Harrelson’s involvement started, it was said he would be a mentor to Han. While promoting his new film Wilson, Harrelson joined Mashable in a Facebook Live Q&A and confirmed his character’s teacher student type relationship with Han; he said, “I’m a mentor to Han, but I’m also a bit of a criminal.”While talking with Variety about Wilson at the Sundance Film Festival on Sunday, he went a step further and seemed to confirm his character’s identity. CinemaBlend picked up on the confirmation, pointing out that Harrelson answers in the affirmative to a question about whether he’s playing Garris Shrike. Watch and listen:
