Billy Dee Williams will return to his role as Lando Calrissian in Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, December 20th.
This will be his first time back since 1983 in Return of the Jedi.
In a recent interview, Billy Dee described himself as both feminine as well as masculine.
He said, I’m a very soft person. I’m not afraid to show that side of myself.
He said he is most proud of his Emmy-nominated role as Gale Sayers in the 1971 movie Brian’s Song. It was a love story between two guys – without sex. It ended up being a kind of breakthrough in terms of racial division… especially in the machismo world of professional sports, like the National Football League.
