Donald Glover Addresses Lando Calrissian Rumors
The fifth Beatle of Star Wars, so to speak, is without a doubt Lando Calrissian. And although Luke Skywalker, Princess Leia, Han Solo, and Chewbacca all returned for The Force Awakens, the former mayor of Cloud City did not. But with a solo Han Solo prequel on the way, word around the galaxy is that a young Lando will be making his way onto our screens, and rumors suggest Donald Glover is up for the role. But what does Glover say? Here's what the actor toldTime in a recent interview when asked about the rumors:
Opening quote
"Yep. There are rumors ... I mean, I grew up on it. My dad was a big fan. I had all the toys when I was little. I had a Darth Vader with the lightsaber he has. It was cool. It's a dynasty. It's like the bible. I love that franchise.
Closing quote

OK, he's not giving us a lot to go on, but it certainly seems like he'd be interested. And we'd love to see him in the role as well. He has the right mix of humor and swagger to pull off a convincing Lando, and he's also been building up his nerd cred with roles in The Martian and the upcoming Spider-Man: Homecoming. So here's hoping that he's not showing all his cards and Donald Glover as Lando is already a done deal.
