After Lucasfilm’s official announcement last week that revealed Donald Glover had been cast as young Lando Calrissian in the upcoming young Han Solo standalone film, the actor made an appearance on the Ellen DeGeneres Show to chat about his upcoming role.
The role of Lando Calrissian was originally made famous by Billy Dee Williams in The Empire Strikes Back, Return of the Jedi, Star Wars Rebels, and the occasional Vegas slot machine… Glover has a lot to live up to, but if anyone can do it, I think he can.
Check out the short clip from the Ellen DeGeneres Show below.
