Billy Dee Williams Has Been Asked To Return For STAR WARS EPISODE VII

We already know that the principal trio from the original Star Wars trilogy are in talks to reprise their roles for the new movies, but what about fan-favorite character Lando Calrissian? At a recent convention Billy Dee Williams was quizzed about his possible return..



Film Buff asked Williams outright if he would be reprising the role of Lando Calrissian for J.J. Abrams' new Star Wars flick while attending the Monster Mania Convention. The actor's response was short and sweet, but he says he has been asked to play the charming former smuggler again, and is still thinking about it. As the site points out, Williams will be turning 76 soon and his decision may be based on whether he feels up to what is bound to be a pretty intense shoot or not. I had the pleasure of meeting the actor myself last year and he definitely appears more than capable to me! Still, there is a chance these new Star Wars movies may be Lando-less, and that's a real shame. Would you guys be disappointed if Williams declines the offer? Sound off in the usual place.
