Auditioning for a role in he Star Wars franchise can be an arduous process. But sometimes, all it takes is some begging. Actor Paul Bettany appeared on The Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon. He discussed his new role in Solo: A Star Wars Story and he revealed a funny story about how he got the job. Bettany said, "It's humiliating. It was super humiliating. Ron Howard... will lie and say that he went 'Paul's the only guy for the job.' And the truth is that I texted him kind of begging." Fallon then produced a screenshot of the text message exchange between Bettany and Howard. It read: Bettany: Have you ever spent long winter evenings wondering why you're not in the Star Wars franchise? I have. Howard: LOL I'll get back to you.
