Billy Dee Williams: The Epitome of Cool

At 82 years old, actor Billy Dee Williams is still finding new ways to make himself the epitome of cool.

In a feature profile for Esquire, the man known for playing Lando Calrissian in the Star Wars franchise – a role he’s reprising this winter for Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker – talks about how he freely identifies with both he/him/himself and she/her/herself pronouns. It’s not immediately clear if Williams has a clear preference for one set of pronouns or not.

“I never tried to be anything except myself,” Williams said. “I think of myself as a relatively colorful character who doesn’t take himself or herself too seriously.”

Yet, the most surprising detail to arise from the article was Williams’ definition of his gender expression.

“And you see I say ‘himself’ and ‘herself,’ because I also see myself as feminine as well as masculine,” Williams tells Esquire Culture Editor Matt Miller. “I’m a very soft person. I’m not afraid to show that side of myself.”

Miller then tells Williams that Donald Glover, who has also played the now-pansexual character of Lando of late, also discussed embracing fluid gender identity and sexuality in the run up to his appearance in the Star Wars franchise.

Jonathan Kasdan (son of Lawrence Kasdan, screenwriter of several Star Wars films) confirmed in early 2018 that “There’s a fluidity to Donald and Billy Dee’s sexuality” in their portrayals of Lando. “…I would have loved to have gotten a more explicitly LGBT character into this movie. I think it’s time, certainly, for that, and I love the fluidity,” Kasdan told The Huffington Post.

After it became known that Glover’s version of Lando in Solo would identify as pansexual, Glover says that Williams simply told him, “be charming.”

You can tell when a black actor has moved on to (((white))) friends because they don't care what black people think of them anymore. All those brothers who thought Billy Dee was the shit in the 70s and 80s are flippin' they weave now that Billy Dee a punk.
Yes, that is me in court with my enormous penis.

Oooh. That's fucking nasty.

Not even lucas or disney to blame at this point. Star Wars must be cosmically doomed.

Update: They fucking lied.

I checked my theater's website again, and it looks like they've still only sold just shy of 1/3 of their opening night tickets. The later showing is particularly sad, sitting at just under 1/4 of available seats sold.



Edit: I compared the numbers to my earlier post. They've sold 49 tickets since October 22nd, so about one a day. Oof. The 10 AM Friday showing, the first one after the big premiere night, has sold 10 tickets. The 10 AM Saturday showing - assuming people might wait for the weekend - has sold 4. The two Saturday night showings have sold a combined 10.

And the Commies and Liberals have a slogan which is even worse, it's treason, they say: "It's better to be red than dead." We say this: "You don't have to be Red and you don't have to be Dead. Not dead. Not Red. Dead Reds"

How are they not firing every person at Disney, from the CEO to the chick in the Daisy Duck costume at Disneyland?

Saving face, denying that there is a problem.

I have no doubts it’s all still turning a profit. Just not ungodly absurd profits.

It's technically tuning a profit, but they paid $5 Billion for the privilege of those profits.

Manchildren still buying toys, just not like they used to. Movies ain't doing so hot. Mandalorian is getting good press and possibly getting some eyeballs over to D+, but it just burning cash, something like 10 mil an episode I think?

To answer Rocket's question, the answer is Disney can afford to play the waiting game. Why buy out KK's contract, pay that money and deal with the backlash, when you just wait for it to expire?

Kenner was making enough on Star Wars toys, absent ANY movie or TV, to keep the fuckers on the shelves until they got bought by Hasbro and someone forgot to renew the license in the late 90s (and then right after, for some reason, we got the prequels. Hmmmm :adam:)  Seems likely Disney will just do that.

Toys related to the new trilogy aren’t being bought at all.
