Omar’s Comin’! Michael K. Williams Joins ‘Han Solo’ Spinoff

The upcoming Han Solo spinoff film continues to build an impressive cast, as Michael K. Williams will now join the film in what is being called a “key role” according to Variety.

We don’t have any information of Williams’ character, or much about the film other than it will be set in the time before A New Hope, but we do know since he will be in the role it will be awesome. Williams makes just about everything he’s involved in – from his HBO hits The Wire, Boardwalk Empire and last year’s The Night Of, to pivotal roles in films like The Road and Inherent Vice – that much cooler.

He will be joining a cast that already includes Alden Ehrenreich in the title role, Donald Glover as a young Lando Callrisian, Emilia Clarke, Woody Harrelson, and Thandie Newton. It’s directed by the 21 Jump Street duo Phil Lord and Chris Miller, and we have to wait for May 25, 2018 to see the finished product.

With this pedigree, it would be tough to see this not being pretty great.
