Many speculated after seeing the preview for the ext episode of Star Wars Rebels, "Idiot's Array" that we would be seeing Lando Calrissian in the episode. Now it seems that may be true. Our friends over at MakingStarWars.net have heard from one of their sources that Lando will indeed be appearing in the episode and it is him playing cards with Zeb in the preview from Rebels Recon.
While this isn't official yet, it does seem like a safe bet and we'll likely get confirmation very soon. The episode will be available on the Disney XD app tomorrow morning (it airs on Disney XD next Monday the 19th of January), plus Lucasfilm publicist Tracy Cannobbio teased big Rebels news coming tomorrow on Twitter.
Pssst. @EW will be sharing some awesome #StarWarsRebels news tomorrow!

Update: SWU fan Jeff A. shared this photo with us, which shows Kanan shaking hands with someone who certainly looks like Lando:
Update #2: This next photo, courtesy of our friends at the Star Wars Rebels Facebook page, pretty much confirms our suspicions:
