Donald Glover Cast as Young Lando

On the official Star Wars account it has been confirmed what fandom has been recommending for ages for the upcoming young Han Solo movie. They wrote "Hello, what have we here? Donald Glover is Lando Calrissian in the untitled 2018 Han Solo Star Wars Story." The actor, mostly known for Community, recently starred in the TV series Atlanta and played a scientist in The Martian.

The Han Solo film will be directed by Phil Lord and Christopher Miller (The Lego Movie, Community) who spoke about the casting. “We’re so lucky to have an artist as talented as Donald join us. These are big shoes to fill, and an even bigger cape, and this one fits him perfectly, which will save us money on alterations. Also, we’d like to publicly apologize to Donald for ruining Comic-Con for him forever.”

If not watching Atlanta, the next time you will see the actor is in Spider-Man: Homecoming in an unknown role.
