Billy Dee To Add Some Nostalgia To Star Wars IX

A long going rumor has now been confirmed by sources to The Hollywood Reporter.  Billy Dee Willams will return to the role he originated of Lando Calrissian. Last seen in Solo: A Star Wars Story amazingly played by Donald Glover, this is one of my all time favorite non-main characters in any film. When I heard this rumor, I figured it was a given. All of these movies so far have featured a major tie in character with Han & Luke. The unfortunate demise of Carrie Fisher left this one empty of that sort of nostalgia. I feel sorry for Keri Russell, as this totally eclipsed the news of her addition the day before as an "action heavy" character. After two misuses of Captain Phasma though, it's a little hard to get too excited about that one anyway. I'm actually pretty ecstatic about this addition of Billy Lee though. There's a lot riding on this one for me. As much as I loved TLJ, I feel like that love lasting, heavily rides on the shoulders of Episode IX. What do y'all think the addition of OG Lando? Put it in the comments, like, & share.
