Han Solo Film Seeks A Young Lando

After months of speculation, Alden Ehrenreich won the much coveted role of a young Han Solo in the upcoming spin-off film about the smuggler.

Now, a whole new bunch is about to begin as The Wrap reports that the standalone effort is currently casting a young Lando Calrissian.

Cloud City’s cassanova was played by Billy Dee Williams in the original trilogy where it was established he had a long history with Solo that we’ll likely see parts of in the new film. Lando also lost the Millennium Falcon to Solo in a game.

Williams recently reprised the role for the animated series “Star Wars Rebels”. Phil Lord and Chris Miller are helming the new Solo film which is due for release May 2018.
