WHAT HAVE WE HERE – HAPPY BIRTHDAY, BILLY DEE
We missed Billy Dee Williams and his 78th birthday yesterday. The wonderful actor was in the final group that George Lucas considered for Han Solo before the director settled on Harrison Ford and Lucas remembered that and, of course, brought Williams into the Star Wars family as Lando Calrissian in The Empire Strikes Back.
Williams will not appear in The Force Awakens but perhaps we’ll get a line of dialogue about what happened to the second best card player, gambler and scoundrel.
Happy Birthday (Belated) Billy Dee Williams!
