Things We Saw Today: Donald Glover Had the Best Reaction to Being Cast as Lando Calrissian
What would you have done if you won one of the more iconic parts in film history? Possibly had the exact same reaction as Donald Glover.
Glover was fans’ top choice for young Lando Calrissian in the Han Solo Solo film from the start. But when he actually had the role in hand, Glover didn’t buy a new car or go out dancing all night or go to Disneyworld. Nope! According to an interview with The Star Wars Show, Glover had a reasonable and relatable reaction. Per io9:
The day I found out I got [the part], I remember… I bought like, a whole pizza, and went home and watched Empire Strikes Back.
Us too, Donald, but we call that Tuesday.
