Paul Bettany reminds us it never hurts to reach out and ask. The Avengers actor plays crime boss Dryden Vos in Solo: A Star Wars Story and he might not have landed the role if he didn’t send director Ron Howard this funny simple text.

“Have you ever spent long winter evenings wondering why you’re not in the Star Wars franchise? I have,” he wrote to Howard, as revealed on The Tonight Show Thursday.

Solo: A Star Wars Story tells of a younger Han Solo (Ehrenreich) as he meets Chewbacca (Suotamo) and Lando Calrissian (Glover). The film opens in theaters on May 25.

And Howard replied, “LOL I’ll get back to you.”

“It’s a true story” Bettany promised. “If you don’t ask, you don’t get. You gotta ask.”

Obviously, Howard got back to him and, as Bettany said, he was on the Star Wars set two weeks later.

Bettany, who plays Vision in Disney’s Avengers, had only just flown back from the film’s screening at the Cannes Film Festival. He was joined by fellow cast members Alden Ehrenreich, Donald Glover, Emilia Clarke, Thandie Newton, Woody Harrelson, and Joonas Suotamo.
