LFL May Have Approached Billy Dee Williams About Ep. VII
Posted By Eric on March 12, 2013
File this one under "T" for "tenuous," but FilmBuffOnline claims that one of their readers asked Billy Dee Williams if he'd be playing Lando again in Episode VII and received this response:
[H]e has been asked, but hasn?t decided if he is going to do it or not yet.
Williams has previously said that he would "love to" return to the role, but it's always possible that something came up since he said that.
Based on Williams' comments at Emerald City Comic-Con two weekends ago (where he said that he hadn't yet been approached), FilmBuffOnline surmises that Williams was contacted in the past week, prior to this past weekend's Monster Mania event, where the FBO reader got this response.
