BirthMoviesDeath is reporting that Community’s Donald Glover is the frontrunner for the role of young Lando Calrissian in the still untitled young Han Solo Star wars film. He’d be joining Hail Caesar!’s Alden Ehrenreich, who has already been cast to take on the iconic Solo role. We can assume Joonas Suotamo will return as Chewbacca, who is taking over the role from the aging Peter Meyhew.
Donald Glover is perfect for the role of young Lando. He can play both funny and suave, and he’ll definately be able to pull off the Billy Dee Williams swagger. The actor and rapper is a hot commodity right now. He will be starring in directing, and writing the new FX series Atlanta, in addition to co-starring in a yet to be dermined role in Spider-man: Homecoming.
