The ‘Star Wars: Episode 7′ / Billy Dee Williams Update You’ve Been Waiting For
We hope you're sitting down for this because Billy Dee Williams, the man who was Lando Calrissian, has broken his legendary two week silence and has commented on 'Star Wars: Episode 7' and his interest in returning the 'Star Wars' saga. And? Just wait until you hear Williams' enthusiastic response!
TMZ caught up with Williams at a gas station while getting an ICEE -- wait, where are you going?! We promise, this is a true story. Anyway, so TMZ caught up with Lando Calrissian at a gas station and while the actor politely refused to be on camera (we didn't even know that was an option), he was asked if he'd would be interested in returning to 'Star Wars: Episode 7' and he said:
Whoa!!! BREAKING NEWS amiright? Williams, who has done some voice work as Lando over the years in 'Star Wars' cartoons, joins Mark Hamill, Harrison Ford and Carrie Fisher as voicing their enthusiasm on returning for 'Star Wars: Episode 7.'
Of course, no one has any idea whether 'Star Wars: Episode 7' would even include Lando. In the books, Lando retired, got married and had a baby named........Lando, Jr., of course.
So what do you think? Should Disney and Lucasfilm bring back Lando and Billy Dee Williams? Did this news completely blow your mind?
