I Convinced All Of Times Square That I Was The New Han Solo Actor

Vid Thumbnail

Hey everyone, this is Alden Ehrenreich, star of “Solo: A Star Wars Story”, guest blogging for Kenjac. Sike! Pranked you, this is actually Kenjac. Or is it?

There’s one thing I’ve learned living in New York City and it’s that the people in Times Square are NOT too bright. I mean, they pay money to take pictures with knockoff Elmos and the Naked Cowboy, wherever that guy is.

Naked Cowboy

So we decided to see if people could possibly mistake me (out of shape, thinning hair, packed into a size-too-small sweater like a sausage) with the star of “Solo: a Star Wars Story” Aldi Ehrenroach . Realistically,  I’m surprised we were able to pull it off. It’s almost like these people didn’t see “Hail, Caeser!” or “Beautiful Creatures”.

To be fair, Alderan Aaronrick isn’t that famous just yet. Which is honestly what made this pretty easy. Except for that first guy. Dude was fucking 2 factor identifying me like I was resetting my password. I just tried to make my BEAUTIFUL AND HUGE green eyes as small as possible and apparently nailed it. I mean, the resemblance is uncanny:

All in all, it was a super fun experience. I feel bad to that Stephen Merchant fellow’s friend, Nate, who was expecting to get a s/o from a big time movie star and instead got a a podcasting schlub with a Reebok™ undershirt (Sponsor the pod) that was clearly failing to suck his gut in. Also, shout out to that 50 year old guy that wanted no less than 5 different photos with me. Biggest Solo fan ever.

P.S. Huge thanks to John, Tom, Sunshine, Devlin, Zah and Robbie for taking my very stupid idea and making it pretty funny.
