Star Wars fans have been clamoring for Donald Glover to play Lando Calrissian that they even started a petition for it (and spawned that Photoshopped image above). That wish has been granted as the actor will play said role in the standalone Han Solo film. He will be playing alongside Alden Ehrenich, who inherited the Han Solo role from Harrison Ford. Not much is known about the film yet but Phil Lord and Christopher Miller will be directing it. The role shows Glover playing the character in his “formative years as a scoundrel.”
Glover is known for his roles in Atlanta (which he created and starred in), Community, and The Martian. He also has a Grammy-nominated album entitled Because the Internet, which he performed under the name Childish Gambino.
