Donald Glover Would Write a 'Star Wars' Movie and Play Lando Again

Solo stars give us the scoop on major scene

Throughout the film, I kept having to remind myself that the man on the screen was supposed to be Han Solo and not some other character in the same universe. There are plenty of new aliens, but they are presented as either real characters or matter-of-fact background players - never gimmicks.

Wonder what the upcoming "Solo: A Star Wars Story" would look like with a young Harrison Ford instead of newcomer Alden Ehrenreich?

When Kasdan made the reveal last week, he said he loves Calrissian's "fluidity―sort of the spectrum of sexuality that Donald appeals to and that droids are a part of". This thing is literally a blob.

Through a series of daring escapades deep within a dark and risky criminal underworld, Han Solo befriends his mighty future copilot Chewbacca and meets the notorious gambler Lando Calrissian, in a journey that will set the course of one of the Star Wars saga's most unlikely heroes.

The only first-team players not to travel to South Africa are defenders Samuel Umtiti and Thomas Vermaelen, who are both injured. Tonight's match is part of celebrations to mark 100 years since the birth of anti-apartheid icon Nelson Mandela.

Donald Glover told Jimmy Kimmel why he wanted to play Lando Calrissian in "Solo". That idea has been tabled for the time being, but Solo star Donald Glover, who famously plays the younger version of the charismatic gambler, has some thoughts of his own on a solo Lando standalone. "He's somebody who goes around and tries everything. but I was like, he's a charming person so I feel like he doesn't have hard and fast boundaries about everything".

"He texted me", Glover said.

When he did land the role, Glover said the first thing he did was let his father know before he settled into some research. "He's eclectic. He likes different things. I don't know where it will go". I think internally everybody had a great time doing it and feels confident about it and loves Star Wars. "I called my dad first and told him and that was like a big moment. Is it weird that I didn't think about it that much?" Vos is far removed from Bettany's far more likable and sympathetic Vision character from the "Avengers" installments. Apparently, that chat paid off in kind, with Williams noting to ComicBook.com's JK Schmidt that he "enjoyed the new movie" and endorsing what Glover did in the movie.
