October 30, 2016 By Jon Somers
Lucasfilm revealed that Donald Glover will play Lando Calrissian in the yet untitles Han Solo Star Wars film. The film explores Lando in his earlier years as rising star in the galaxies criminal underworld. It is set years before the events in the original movies. It is an interesting film as the characters are iconic in their roles as mature heroes but their earlier lives are barley hinted at.
Lucasfilm said in as statement:
“We’re so lucky to have an artist as talented as Donald join us. These are big shoes to fill, and an even bigger cape, and this one fits him perfectly, which will save us money on alterations. Also, we’d like to publicly apologize to Donald for ruining Comic-Con for him forever.”
Glover is best known for creating and starring in the critically acclaimed FX series Atlanta (which had the highest premiere numbers for any basic cable comedy show since 2013), as well as for starring in four seasons of the show Community, and for his Grammy-nominated album “Because the Internet,” performed under the name Childish Gambino.
