Photo of Young Lando Donald Glover and Old Lando Billy Dee Williams Meeting in Restaurant
As Phil Lord and Chris Miller started shooting the Han Solo standalone film, Donald Glover has recently been spotted hanging out with Billy Dee Williams! It's pretty cool to see Young Lando Calrissian meeting old Lando Calrissian. There's no doubt that Glover is looking for some help and advice on playing the character. You can check out the photo below, which was shared on Reddit.
This must've been such a cool experience for Glover, who has expressed his admiration of Williams and his portrayal of Lando. While previously talking to SciFi Now, Glover explained that he will never be cool as Billy Dee Williams:
"I think the point of all of this is just to make people believe you, so I just keep thinking about that. I’m not Billy Dee Williams; I am not that cool. I don’t think anyone is really, but I just had to make it believable. I had to do my own ‘cool’. I called my mum and my dad when I heard I’d won the role, and she said to me, ‘Don’t mess this up. This is Billy Dee Williams, and he is really cool.’ I take it very seriously."
Glover is going to be great in this role. It's inspired casting, and I'm excited to see how he takes this classic Star Wars character and makes it his own.
