Donald Glover has joined the cast of the upcoming Star Wars Han Solo spinoff film.

The 33-year-old, who also raps using the name ‘Childish Gambino’, will play Lando Calrissian in the Disney and Lucasfilm project, a role made famous by Billy Dee Williams in 1980’s Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back. According to Deadline.com:

A charming, slippery former professional gambler and smuggler who, by the events of that film, has somehow become the owner of the vast mining settlement called Cloud City, Lando goes on to become a pivotal figure in the Rebellion.

The untitled Han Solo movei will be directed by Phil Lord and Christopher Miller. It’s expected to hit theaters everywhere in 2018.
