On October 21, it was announced that Donald Glover would be cast as Lando Calrissian in the upcoming Han Solo stand-alone movie. On The Ellen DeGeneres Show, Glover spoke for the first time about landing the role. “I’m very honored. It’s a very big deal. There’s this thing going around on the internet of me in a Star Wars T-shirt when I was in high school,” Glover said. “That was the first toy I had,” he added. “Lando. My dad gave it to me. I had a Darth Vader one, too.” When it came to telling his parents, his dad was thrilled, but his mother was more concerned, and warned him, “Don’t mess it up.” Don’t worry, Glover, we have faith in you.
