Billy Dee Williams asked back for Star Wars Episode 7

Billy Dee Williams asked back for Star Wars Episode 7

Moviehole had a talkative bird perch upon its online shoulders last year and murmur something about Lando Calrissian (Billy Dee Williams) appearing in Michael Arndt’s “Star Wars Episode 7″ screenplay. It made sense to us, after all Luke, Leia and Han all appear in the script. Lucasfilm wouldn’t confirm the rumour, and though we reported it, the news itself didn’t get much traction – likely because there were so many ‘rumours’ out and about, regarding the sequel, at the time (in fact, there still are and will be for a considerable amount of the future). Fair enough.

Now, Williams has as good as confirmed Lando is in the upcoming sequel script, telling Film Buff – at a recent convention- that he has been asked to reprise his role as Cloud City’s resident charmer opposite Harrison Ford’s Han Solo, Mark Hamill’s Luke Skywalker and Carrie Fisher’s Princess Leia.

So it’s a given then that we’ll see the original trilogies coolest cat back on screen in 2015 then? Nope. According to Williams, he hasn’t decided whether or not he wants to do it yet. What’s to think about, I wonder?
