Ever since he was not part of the casting announcement fans have been wondering if and when we'll be seeing Billy Dee Williams as Lando Calrissian in the sequel trilogy. It seems to be all but certain that he won't be in The Force Awakens, but that doesn't mean he can't be in Episode VIII. A new report from The Sun newspaper in The UK says that he will be making, "a fun cameo" in the Rian Johnson directed Episode VIII. They also report that Billy Dee is "definitely up for it."
We should point out that The Sun's reputation is dubious at best and everything they report should be taken with a huge grain of salt. That being said, I also wouldn't be surprised if Billy Dee does show up in a later film in the sequel trilogy.
As always this is just a rumor until confirmed or denied by Lucasfilm or Disney.
