He rips and runs... right into Star Wars. Michael K. Williams cast in the Han Solo-rigin!
You read that right nerds. The man behind some of the best badasses to grace a television screen, Michael K. Williams, is set to join the Star Wars universe.
Per a report from Variety, the Emmy nominated actor has joined the cast of the upcoming Star Wars spin-off, Han Solo.
Plain and simple, this is awesome. Williams brings a more than impressive resume and you have to figure with his penchant for being a BAMF on-screen, he's likely to be a bad guy. Then again, in a film that film that's the origin story of a rogue smuggler, who's the good guy? Unfortunately, we won't find out until early next summer. Han Solo is currently slated for a May 25, 2018 release.
