Donald Glover Secretly Met With Billy Dee Williams to Talk 'Star Wars'

Donald Glover is getting ready to play Lando Calrissian in the upcoming Star Wars young Han Solo flick so he went straight to the source to get filled in on the character.

The 33-year-old actor and musician secretly met up with the original Lando, Billy Dee Williams, to talk about the role before he began shooting.

“He had questions about [Lando]. I guess he was doing what normal actors do, they just want to find out what direction they want to take so they gather their information. So, we just sat and talked, and I didn’t want to impose on anything he wanted to do — he’s got his own ideas, I would imagine…He’s a very talented young man,” Billy Dee told THR.

He added, “Donald is eclectic, I think that’s really important particularly for the character of Lando. He is particularly eclectic in the way he approaches his art.”

Although Donald will now be taking on the role, Billy Dee added that he is open to appearing in future Star Wars films, as he will always identify with the character.

“To me, I guess what it is that I identify so much with Lando. I mean, Lando has been very much a part of my life for over 30 years…I just never thought of anybody else being Lando. I just see myself as Lando,” he said.
