Billy Dee Williams Won’t Return as Lando Calrissian in ‘Star Wars’ After This [VIDEO]
Everyone is excited to see the old characters return in the seventh ‘Star Wars’ film, but we’re pretty sure Lando Calrissian will be cut from the script after J.J. Abrams sees Billy Dee Williams’ “tribute” to the films on ‘Dancing with the Stars.’
Billy Dee Williams was the man in the early 80s. Fresh off his role as the most suave mofo in the galaxy — Lando Calrissian — he rolled right into a long-running campaign as the smooth-talking spokesman for Colt 45 malt liquor. He never really had another prominent role in any huge movies, although he did have a bit part as a pre-Two-Face Harvey Dent in Tim Burton’s 1989 ‘Batman.’
I think it’s safe to say that after dragging his ‘Star Wars’ street cred through the mud on ‘Dancing with The Stars,’ he blew about every chance he had of being included in the new films. Sorry, Lando. Take that fruity ass dancing back to Cloud City.
