TMZ got a chance to speak with Billy Dee Williams and asked him a few questions about the upcoming Star Wars: Episode 7...
They asked him if he would be willing to come back and be part of the new movie. He answered that he would be there if the want him and that a lot of people would love to see Lando come back.
Unfortunately he revealed that still no one has contacted him about the new Star Wars movie. And not only that but he was completely unaware that the movie is already filming and that it's set 35 years after ROTJ.
He also said that he can't think of better producer and director for Episode 7 and that he has confidence in Disney.
Many people thought that he left DWTS because of the Episode 7 filming. He sounded pretty honest in the video so obviously that is not the case. The chances to see him in Episode 7 are getting slimmer. At least they should call him for a cameo. I doubt that they will erase his character just like that.
He recently did some voice work for the new TV series Star Wars: Rebels so he is still in the game.
