Biography of Alden EhrenreichAlden Ehrenreich is a promising American actor who debuted in the drama «Tetro» by Francis Ford Coppola and then played in the next director’s film «Twixt». He is also known for his roles in the melodrama «Beautiful Creatures», Woody Allen’s drama «Blue Jasmine» and a comedy by Koen brothers «Hail, Caesar!».
ChildhoodThe actor-to-be was born on November 22, 1989, in Los-Angeles. He is the only child of an interior designer Sari Newman and Mark Ehrenreich, a bookkeeper. Shortly after the divorce of his parents, a dentist Harry Aronovic became a boy’s stepfather. Alden’s ancestors were the Jewish migrants from Poland, Austria-Hungary, and Russian Empire, thus the boy was brought up in the reconstructive Judaism tradition. The followers of this way of thinking consider Judaism not only as a religion but a foundation for the whole civilization.
Acting career of Alden EhrenreichThe first professional who discovered an acting talent in Alden was none other than Stephen Spielberg. One day the Oscar-winning director was a guest on a Bar Mitzvah ceremony of Alden’s friend. The fellows shot the comedy short-film, where Alden played a skinny punk trying to stop the wedding. Spielberg was so impressed by Alden’s artistry that assisted him to appear on TV-screens. Firstly, in 2005, Alden was cast to fantasy-series «Supernatural» and then, in 2006, he appeared in the police procedural «CSI: Crime Scene Investigation».
His character is Hobby Doyle who is a handsome man but utterly mediocre actor, all the time portraying flat characters in westerns and suddenly having chosen for a dramatic role in melodrama. Supposedly, the scenes featuring Ehrenreich made spectators laugh more often than any other in the film.
However, later managers of Lucasfilm felt disappointed by Alden’s acting during the filming. For this reason, they hired a professional to assist Ehrenreich on the set. Maggie Kylie did this job, who was also an assistant of Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill while they were starring in «21 Jump Street».
«Solo» had topped the box-office, leaving behind the previous leader «Deadpool 2». Nevertheless, the promising blockbuster couldn’t have lived up Disney’s expectations with revenue of about 270 million dollars while the whole budget was estimated as 250 million. Therefore, we can already state that «Han Solo» barely covered all the expenses and almost earned nothing.
