'SOLO': SMOOTH CRIMINAL!
Where there's a young hotshot Han Solo, there's got to be a young Lando Calrissian too, and who better to bring him to life for this prequel adventure - Solo: A Star Wars Story - than rising star talent actor/writer/musician Donald Glover, who, from the early teaser looks a confident and comfortable fit in the role originally brought to suave and heroic life by Billy Dee Williams. In these early days of his charismatic era of adventure, we'll see him as the original owner of the Millennium Falcon (certainly a much cleaner and fully repaired version than the one we'll see with Han years later), working alongside his trusty droid, the feisty but inspiring L3-37.
Glover talks about becoming, and inheriting the legacy, of Lando Calrissian:
Before the film gets released, look out for Lando as one of the main characters of the upcoming Han Solo all-new prequel adventure novel: Last Shot, out April 18th in the UK, from Century. His visage bares the book's alternate collector's hardcover jacket, which, like Lando, is very cool.
