HUGE NEWS! It has officially been announced that actor Donald Glover (Community) has been cast in the role of young Lando Calrissian in the upcoming stand alone Star Wars film for Han Solo. Glover will take on the role that was made famous by actor Billy Dee Williams and join Alden Ehrenreich who was cast in the role of Han Solo.
