Talking with USA Today at the Golden Globes, actor Donald Glover who plays Lando Calrissian in the upcoming Han Solo movie commented on how much he is looking forward to the role.
How is Glover preparing to play the infamous smuggler and gambler, Lando Calrissian, in the upcoming Han Solo prequel?
“Not getting to eat anything enjoyable for the rest of my life,” Glover told gathered press, to laughter. “Lando’s a big deal to me. It was literally the first toy I ever got. When you have something that’s kind of iconic … where people pay attention to it, it’s hard because you want to live up to the expectation. But all you can do is live up to your own. And Star Wars is really high.”
Mostly, he added, “I really just want to have fun. The directors: (Christopher Miller and Phil Lord), they’re amazing. I love the guy who is playing Han (Alden Ehrenreich). It’s going to be a good time. It’s going to be fun. I’m getting ready to just have fun with those guys.”
On the night, Glover won Best Actor In A Comedy for his performance in Atlanta, whilst the show itself won Best Television Comedy.
