ISTp is my guess
You may think you can clearly see the faults of an LSE, but I like to always keep in mind that they can see the faults of an LIE just as clearly.
Sol seems to me to be a fairly typical LSE. He is basically a good, solid guy. If he is different from most other LSE's, it is in the fact that he is interested in personality theory, which is far out of the comfort zone of most LSE's. Personally, when I get out of my comfort zone (basically, anywhere near Feelings), I tend to look pretty stupid.
That's my take on it, and really I just typed him based on my knowledge of the system so hopefully it was clear what I was trying to say and possibly food for thought.
With respect to Clive Owen, he's pretty clearly an introvert. I can see how he looks inside himself every second or so. He seems to value Te (speaking of a director, "He's unusual, because he's so smart......He's so smart..") and he is in good physical shape (seemingly naturally), so he has Se. I also don't get a strong sense of any quadra other than Gamma from him, so that means he could very well be ESI. To me, ESI's seem like air. They don't call up my offensive or defensive weapons systems into action.
You very well could be right about him being ESI. You seem to have better recognition skills in this area than I do. I have been around some ESI's for a long time without realizing they are ESI's. OTOH, I have recognized some ESI's in the first few minutes of meeting them, so I guess my typing skills are pretty uneven.

Here's a discussion about the type of a character in a movie he played, but they also discussed a little what his type could be as well:
He seems Te/Fi valuing to me. Reading some of his quotes, I think he seems more Delta than Gamma.
There is something about ESI males that just gives them away. There are so many expressions they have in common and all of them share this. That is how I suspect they are ESI and then observe more to find signs of Fi and Se. And then done. But I wouldn't say since someone is naturally in shape, they have strong Se, even though practically all Se egos or Se super egos I know are fit, I try to be fit also. Clive Owen is an ESI and I have always had the biggest crush on him
i don't really have an opinion on his type, but he reminds me very much of an ILI i know, both in his manner of speaking and facial expressions.
edit: definitely not ESI.
There is this certain look in his eyes that I've seen before with an ESI 4w3 guy except I think Clive's got a 5-wing (he fits the 4w5 visual profiles in any case).
ESI 4w5 might be it, agreed that he's in Te/Fi quadra.
So I read above about the possibility that Clive Owen might be ILI instead of ESI, and in browsing the internets, I found this:
Now, I know a few ILI's, and one owns a '68 Shelby Mustang with a 390 engine, roll cage, and five point harness, and the other three own late model BMW's (the Ultimate Driving Machine, donchanoe). I am convinced this is because ILI's have DS-Se.
Now, take a close look at the attached BMW commercial and the driver, Clive Owen. He has REAL Se, and he is using it to impress a very tough SEE blonde. (Note that she gets wet in the end ).
I'd say that BMW knows who their customers are.
(Incidentally, the real ILI's in the commercial are the bodyguards. At least the big guy is ILI. The slightly smaller bodyguard might be ILI or SLI.)
The male ESI's that I know either drive something anonymous (they don't have to show off) or they drive a racing bike.

I'm not sure what they are expecting, but thank you very much!
Hey, @Persephone, are you listening?
ESI makes sense for him. He's hot btw.
