Roseanne finishes up its “revival season” this week, and it’s undoubtedly been one of the biggest success stories of the TV season. Already renewed for another season, the show brought back everyone from the original run of the series, and Roseanne Barr told us that having the whole crew back together again was one of the biggest reasons why the new season went as well as it did.

Alden Ehrenreich was born in 1989, 12 years after the character he is now playing, Han Solo, was introduced in the original Star Wars. That meant he had a little bit of catching up to do, if he was going to be as much of a Han Solo expert as the die-hard fans who will be judging his performance. So, along with watching the original movies, did Ehrenreich Google everything he could find about Solo and Star Wars ?
Solo: A Star Wars Story opens in theaters everywhere this Friday.

In four seasons of The Flash, the show’s characters have traveled to alternate Earths and been in alternate timelines, and they’ve faced scores of treacherous metas, so they’ve had all kinds of adventures. With so many to choose from, it’s interesting that both Carlos Valdes and Tom Cavanagh both chose one particular episode as their favorite, an episode Cavanagh directed called The Once and Future Flash.

Billy Dee Williams was a fan favorite in The Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi as Lando Calrissian, an old friend of Han Solo’s (and the original owner of the Millennium Falcon). In the new movie Solo: A Star Wars Story, we get to see how that friendship developed, with Atlanta’sDonald Glover playing the role. Director Ron Howard told us he thought the Golden Globe winner found a great balance between making the character his own and paying homage to the classic Williams version of the character.
