Lando for Episode VII?

Sweet Billy Dee says...

Nothing is official with the big three yet. Hamill, Ford, and Fisher have all said they wished to return to the Star Wars franchise, but no deal or official word has surfaced. Many of you Maniacs keep asking about Billy Dee Williams and his Lando Calrissian. Billy Dee Williams appeared at Monster Mania in New Jersey last weekend and had this brief note to say about his appearance in the next trilogy. 


“Billy Dee said, he has been asked, but hasn’t decided if he is going to do it or not yet” - Film Buff Online. 


Of course we have to say, what? 


Billy Dee Williams will be 76 this year and perhaps age has caught up to the old scoundrel. Then again he could just be under contract and not allowed to say anything. I remember see Leonard Nimoy at convention in New Jersey and he had “no idea” who would play the new Spock. Within a day or two it was announced. Yeah, he knew. 


We’ll keep watching Maniacs, 2015 is just around the corner.

Billy Dee must return to be the only black guy in the galaxy.

 Hanso, have you forgotten the Rebel Pilot in Return of the Jedi?

Black people, Asians, and women are mighty sparse in that galaxy far, far away.

Though surprisingly, the prequels reveal that Polynesians are all over the place, especially since they are every single clone stormtrooper.

The last time I saw Billy Dee was in an episode of Modern Family... He looked old (as he is).

Maybe one of the main themes of these new movies is taking place in a Galactic Retirement Community, where Han, Leia, Luke and what the hell, why not the entire cast of the first three movies, talk about their glory days of battling the empire.

 Trate, that dude died.  Only Lando remains, its why he must come back.

 i thought the asians were those Trade Federation aliens that were trying to kill Padme all the time.

 Of course Black people and Asians were scarce.

Lucas was too busy exploiting little people...

 Stop the madness.......Please whoever is in charge think before you start signing and casting these old actors.  

This is not going to go well.  My thoughts of course......

The cantina is gonna need to stock up on some Colt 45 for ole Lando.

I think the title of the new movie is going to be: Star Wars - the Golden Years
