The “Han Solo” movie is reportedly casting a young version of Lando Calrissian — the fan-favorite pilot and Baron administrator of Cloud City — to star opposite Alden Ehrenreich’s Han Solo.
Sources are saying Donald Glover is reportedly a front runner for the much-coveted role.
The rising actor seems like he would mesh perfectly with Lando’s witty yet smooth style, and many fans are already saying they can easily imagine Glover doing Billy Dee Williams’ role justice.
Of course, an official casting offer has yet to be confirmed and likely won’t be until Lucasfilm simply announces their casting decision.
The first fans saw of Lando was back in Star Wars: Episode V – The Empire Strikes Back when Han and Lando were reunited after an extended farewell. The two clearly had a history between them, and we even learned that Lando was the original owner of the Millennium Falcon before Han won it “fair and square” in a game (We really want to see this on screen!).
