Probably one of the most inspired casting choices in Solo: A Star Wars Story is Donald Glover playing Lando Calrissian, and Glover gives some insight on how Lando here will be different from when we meet him in The Empire Strikes Back.
News was coming out last year that Atlanta creator Donald Glover was working on an animated Deadpool series for FX. We haven’t been getting any major updates since, but now news has come out that FX has backed out on producing the series.
Though a lot of people are excited to see Donald Glover as Lando Calrissian in Solo: A Star Wars Story, he’s also been cast as the adult Simba in Jon Favreau’s Lion King reboot for 2019. What’s cool is, Glover had brought his co-star J.D. McCrary, who plays young Simba, to sing with him during the Grammy Awards this year.
