"I think that is fine, again as long as the creative people don't go "oh my god, I don't know what to do so we will just repeat ourselves over and over again because that's what we think the fans like". "One thing that Billy did say was, be charming." reveals Glover. It has a strong story, plenty of character development and shows fans at least three iconic Star Wars moments for the first time on the big screen. I'm just looking to see what it is that makes me tick now, what it is that I relate to, what it is that gets me going now, in this climate. I don't actually think I could write as a man. Glover said that an action figure of, his character, Lando Calrissian was his first toy.

He says, "How can you not be pansexual in space?" Glover is flawless, if a bit understated, in the role originated by Billy Dee Williams in the original "Star Wars" trilogy. "There are so many things to have sex with". Talking at a Solo town hall alongside co-stars Alden Ehrenreich, Emilia Clarke, and Paul Bettany due to air on SiriusXM's Entertainment Weekly Radio (channel 105) on Thursday (and reported by EW), Glover even went as far as to suggest perhaps a lot of the Star Wars universe is pansexual. It has given me confidence, it has given me bloody wide open doors that were never open before. "It would always be fun to be Lando again", Glover said of a possible spin off.

Part of the appeal, Glover added, was that Lando mostly roams in a separate realm from the Skywalker clan, whose story is "almost like the Bible" at this point. Though Lucasfilm has already made it clear that it has no such flick in the works just yet, the actor mused about the possibility, telling EW that there was a TV character whose essence he'd like to portray.




The summer movie season kicks off with Solo Friday - as in Star Wars rebel Han Solo.

Solo: A Star Wars Story is about to hit theaters, and its stars - Donald Glover (Lando Calrissian) and Alden Ehrenreich (Han Solo) - have been making the rounds promoting the film.

"I'm sure that Solo will be controversial for some people because it's sort of a different Star Wars movie".
