OT: Lando Calrissian is back in Episode IX

Chatter about [Billy Dee] Williams joining the production, which is set to begin later this summer, increased in recent days when the actor bowed out of an upcoming sci-fi and pop culture convention citing a conflict with a movie schedule. Sources confirmed to The Hollywood Reporter that Williams will indeed be returning to the Star Wars film franchise for the first time since 1983's Return of the Jedi. The Lando Calrissian character made his suave debut in 1980's The Empire Strikes Back.

given your avatar, I can't believe it took you this long to respond to this!

I'm actually not super big into star wars -- still have yet to see Solo. I just like Nien Nunb because it looks like his cheeks are inside out and I went long enough with no avatar (some context)

Im sure these hack frauds will have an opinion on this

Keep calm, Gobble on

Honestly I'm bummed it's not Donald Glover.

I have no idea why my username is VT_Warthog.

Let's be real here. They are going to kill Lando off and pretty much everyone from Episode 4 to 6. So it makes sense to bring the 81 year old back instead of the younger Donald Glover, who has a few sequals to be in anyway with pal Han.

Holy shit, I had no idea that he was 81, but per Wikipedia it's the damn truth.

And he looks it, too.

Oh yeah I know. It would be incredibly weird if he played an older Lando. I just want more Donald Glover. Not long till Lion King though.

Word is Disney is "killing off" Kathleen Kennedy from all Star Wars productions.

Missed opportunity not having him in the Casino in VIII but we'll take it.

I can imagine no more rewarding a career. And any man who may be asked in this century what he did to make his life worthwhile, I think can respond with a good deal of pride and satisfaction:
“I served in the United States Navy"

I'm sure they'll just add him in when they do the "digitally remastered" release in 20 years.

Well played, but sad/sarcastic clapping gif because I can really see them doing that. *sigh*

I'm still waiting to see him do his version of Two Face in Tim Burton's Batman franchise.
