Billy Dee Williams Really Wants To Be In STAR WARS: EPISODE 7
Billy Dee Williams has put out a post on Facebook asking fans for their support as he campaigns to reprise the role of Lando Calrissian in Star Wars: Episode 7. Click to find out more.
Since Disney announced that they are making a new Star Warstrilogy, we have all wondered who exactly will be involved. We know J.J. Abrams will direct Star Wars: Episode 7, and we assume Mark Hamill, Harrison Ford, and Carrie Fisher will return as Luke Skywalker, Han Solo, and Princess Leia. But one person we haven't heard to much from is Billy Dee Williams. Recently the actor posted on the following to his Facebook page.
"Everyone is still asking about the new Star Wars movie.... the best way to ensure that Billy Dee Williams will be in the new film is to FB, TWITTER, BLOG and tell Disney and Lucasfilm that you want to see LANDO again! Hopefully JJ will read the wishes and write in LANDO! UNTIL then.... here is all that is known: "I am in the dark with the actual plans that Disney and Lucasfilm have for the future of the “Star Wars” universe. I have heard the same rumors that the fans heard, that a new trilogy is being made, that spin-offs may be made, that we all [Mark, Carrie, Harrison and myself] are going to be reprising our roles in these projects. At this point in time, nothing has been confirmed about my participation and I have signed no contracts. I assure you that I would absolutely love to reprise my role of Lando Calrissian. He's a character that I took great pride in creating on screen and have continued to be a part of when providing his voice for video games, the new “Star Wars Detours” cartoon and for various episodes of “Robot Chicken”, among other projects. It’s a lot of fun to keep Lando alive and I am eager to do it again, on film, when I get the call. I thank all the fans out there for their continued support and I hope to get the call from Disney and Lucasfilm real soon, until then, may the force be with us all!" ~ Billy Dee Williams"
So let's bust out the Colt 45 boys. I think I speak for everybody when I say that Billy Dee should come back as Lando. There isn't a single downside to this. What do you think? Comment below. Peace.
