It has been heavily rumored that Billy Dee Williams will be back to reprise his role as Lando Calrissian in Star Wars 9. The first tip came last month when it was revealed that Williams changed up his diet and started meeting with a trainer three times a week, which is the same training regimen that Carrie Fisher and Mark Hamill underwent to prepare for The Force Awakens and The Last Jedi.

Remember that animated Star Wars series from the Robot Chicken team, Star Wars: Detours? Well, Lucasfilm has renewed the trademark. Why? I have no idea, but I hope it means that one day it will see the light of day! If you need a reminder of what the series is about, here's the synopsis: Star Wars Detours is an animated comedy that explores what daily life is like in a galaxy far, far away. There are no Empires striking back or attacking clones here. Instead, Star Wars Detours focuses on the universe’s regular folks and their everyday problems… which, to be fair, do frequently involve famous bounty hunters, crazed Ewoks, and even a Dark Lord of the Sith. Welcome to Star Wars: Detours: the other side of the stars, between the wars. It's been six years since Lucasfilm announced the series at Star Wars Celebration in 2012.

The older Lando Calrissian could be making a return to the big screen for Star Wars 9. 81-year old actor Billy Dee Williams is rumored to be preparing to reprise his role as the ever charming Calrissian after it was revealed that he has been training 3 days a week.

While this news on its own doesn't really seem like much, Carrie Fisher and Mark Hamill did the same thing when preparing for 2015's The Force Awakens and again for The Last Jedi. Williams could be just making lifestyle choices, but the timing is a little close to the production start of Star Wars 9, which is reportedly going to start in July. The Resistance needs time to rebuild and will be seeking allies when Star Wars 9 hits … [Read more...] about Billy Dee Williams in Training to Return as Lando in Star Wars 9?

"I'm pretty fatalistic about this industry," says the actress Emilia Clarke — who is best known as one of the most fascinating and beloved characters in TV history, Game of Thrones' Daenerys Stormborn of House Targaryen, rightful heir to the Iron Throne, rightful Queen of the Andals and the First Men, Protector of the Seven Kingdoms, the Mother of Dragons, the Khaleesi of the Great Grass Sea, the Unburnt, the Breaker of Chains — as we sit down at the offices of The Hollywood Reporter to record an episode of THR's 'Awards Chatter' podcast.
