Billy Dee's shoes are some tough ones to fill. Here's hoping he can pull it off.
I'm really, really coming around on this
ps I'm a total Star Wars baby, I saw it something like 13+ times in the theater when it came out. The only thing I wanted to do every weekend for months "Gramma, I wanna go see Star Wars again!"
"We're so lucky to have an artist as talented as Donald join us," said Lord and Miller. "These are big shoes to fill, and an even bigger cape, and this one fits him perfectly, which will save us money on alterations. Also, we'd like to publicly apologize to Donald for ruining Comic-Con for him forever."
I'm sure he'll be fine.
Obviously that will be hard, but it isn't nearly as hard as getting Han Solo right. Harrison Ford is one of my all-time favorite actors, and I think he really made Han Solo into perhaps the most iconic character in Star Wars (except maybe Vader).
And, ironically, you can put just about anyone into the Vader suit and have him do a passable job.
Then how is he going to kill the last remaining members of Rogue One when he boards their ship just as they beam the plans to Leia's ship?
