Almost exactly a month ago, I shared with you this stunning report:
And you know Hollywood just looooves sequels, so…here it comes:
Donald Glover and Billy Dee Williams were spotted yesterday having their own lunch, presumably to talk about the former inheriting the iconic role of the latter in Han Solo: A Star Wars Story! Yes, Glover is taking on the role of Lando Calrissian, a character Williams has been the custodian of for over 30 years, even voicing him in animated series and in The LEGO Movie!
Here’s the photo, tweeted out by a fan, of Glover and Williams having a moment at a restaurant in Los Feliz:
Glover will be playing Han Solo: A Star Wars Story, which is based on a script written by Lawrence and Jon Kasdan. The film is being directed by The LEGO Movie directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller, and will feature the acting talents of Ehrenreich, Glover, Emilia Clarke, and Woody Harrelson.
Wouldn’t it be awesome to have been a fly on the wall while Glover picked Billy Dee’s brain about Lando?
But now for the bigger, far more important question this all raises: Who picked up the tab?
