Donald Glover Spills Some Details On Playing Lando Calrissian

Published

on

Lucasfilm’s Solo: A Star Wars Story is just months away. Donald Glover has his hands full with working on new music, Atlanta season 2, a Deadpool animated series, and saving the galaxy. Glover who will star as the iconic character Lando Calrissian in Solo.

During an interview with Slashfilm, Glover spoke about playing Lando and the impact of the director switch and how it changed the project.

Glover meet with Billy Dee Williams to get some advice on how to play the character.  “He just told me to be charming,” Glover said. “I was like that’s the best advice ever.”

“I think even Han isn’t as complicated as Lando is. From the first time you meet him, you don’t know whether to trust him or not, and you’re constantly not knowing whether to trust him. I like that about him.”

The film has been wrapped in some controversies after the directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller departure due to creative differences with the studio. Ron Howard was later hired in June and begin to reshoot some scenes for the film. Typically reshoots can spell doom for the project i.e. Justice League, but Glover gives fans a bit hope.

“I remember going on set one of the first times, [Ron Howard] was like, ‘Yeah, I want to follow you onto the Millennium Falcon and do this thing,’” Glover said. “I was like, ‘I don’t think I’ve ever seen the outside go into the inside.’ He’s like, ‘Yeah, no one’s ever done that shot.’ As a fan I was like yeah, I was really excited. I know there’s been a lot of talk in the press about this movie but for me anyway, it was a dream and also it looks really cool to me.”

As for any major creative changes with Lando, Glover stated that nothing changed.

“Not a ton actually,” Glover said. “Not a lot at all, at least not for me. I think we’ve all never been faced with anything like that and I think he did a good job of coming and tell us he didn’t want to change what we were doing at all. He wanted us to remain confident in our vision. He just wanted to sculpt it in a way.”

Solo: A Star Wars Story hits theaters May 25, 2018.
