Ron Howard unveils first look at brother Clint in Solo: A Star Wars Story

Ron Howard's history of casting both father Rance (Far and Away, Cinderella Man) and little brother Clint (Apollo 13, How the Grinch Stole Christmas) in his projects goes back decades now. But while we lost Rance late last year, Clint is carrying on the tradition in Solo: A Star Wars Story.

Back in August, Ron Howard confirmed that fans would be seeing his brother in the film, but we didn't know who Clint would be playing until the director recently tweeted our first official look ...

The most striking thing about this picture is how different Clint looks. The makeup department outdid itself, because even a staunch Clint Howard fan may not have spotted this cameo right away.

Now we're wondering if Ron's daughter Bryce Dallas Howard might pop up in the film as well. We know she was in a few of his films when she was younger (including uncredited roles in Apollo 13 and A Beautiful Mind), but here's hoping she pops up somewhere in Solo. After all, it's tradition, right?

We'll have to wait to see what Howards we get when Solo: A Star Wars Story hits theaters on May 25, but in the meantime, have a look at some of the folks we're sure are going to be there with these new character posters in the gallery below.
