Billy Dee Williams Will Be in "Star Wars 9"!!!

 

HIGHLIGHTS:  BILLY DEE WILLIAMS backed out of a fan convention due to a conflict with a movie schedule, and the secret got out:  The original Lando Calrissian is returning for "Star Wars 9".

 

 

FULL STORY:  "Star Wars 9" is guaranteed to be the SMOOTHEST film in the series since the original trilogy . . . because BILLY DEE "FRICKIN'" WILLIAMS is returning as Lando Calrissian!!!

 

 

Of course, we just saw Lando in "Solo: A Star Wars Story", played by DONALD GLOVER . . . but Billy Dee is the O.G., baby.

 

 

They were trying to keep his return quiet, but the secret got out when he bowed out of a fan convention due to a conflict with a movie schedule.

 

 

Lando made his debut in 1980, in "The Empire Strikes Back", and came back for "Return of the Jedi" in 1983.  Since then, Billy Dee has also voiced Lando in cartoons and video games.

He's 81 years old, and I'll bet he still enjoys a smooth Colt 45 or two. 

 

 

(Lando's first line of dialog:  "Hey, Chewie . . . where the hell is everybody else???")
