Sylvester Stallone went up against Harrison Ford for the role of ';Star Wars' hero Han Solo – but the Hollywood hardman missed out on the part after failing to impress director George Lucas.

The Rambo star opened up about his 1975 audition in a recent web chat with fans and confessed he's glad the part went to Ford instead of him.

He explained, "Yes, as a matter of fact I did (try out for Solo) and it didn't meet with much approval. When I stood in front of George Lucas he didn't look at me once, obviously being very shy. Then I said, ';Well obviously I'm not the right type'. But it all worked out for the best since I don't look good in Spandex holding a ray gun."

What do you think?
