Billy Dee Williams Will Play Lando Calrissian in Star Wars Rebels 

Kwame Opam for The Verge:

Billy Dee Williams himself will reprise his role as the classy conman Lando Calrissian in Disney’s Star Wars Rebels. And he’s as cool as ever in the part.

I can’t say enough about this show. They got freaking Lando. And last week they had Yoda. I liked The Clone Wars (and even the original) series as much as the next Star Wars guy. Rebels is just leaps and bounds better. Sure, the plots are targeted at an audience much younger than myself. But there is something about the story in between Sith and A New Hope that’s still so unknown and exciting. That’s what Rebels is all about.

See the next episode on January 19.
