Billy Dee Williams Not Comfortable With Someone Else Playing Star Wars’ Lando


The new Disney Star Wars universe is expanding with a movie about young Han Solo which also features a younger Lando Calrissian played by Donald Glover. Billy Dee Williams who played Lando in the original trilogy has given Glover his blessing, but still feels weird about sharing the character. He said, “I don’t know…I just see myself as Lando. I mean, Lando has been very much a part of my life for over 30 years.
