Billy Dee Williams a.k.a. Lando Calrissian coming to Kansas City Planet Comicon

Posted By on Tue, Jan 24, 2012 at 1:25 PM

Big news for sci-fi aficionados! Billy Dee Williams — Star Wars' Lando Calrissian — will make an appearance at Planet Comicon on March 24 and 25. Although, it does appear that Lando is a little sick of shuffling in and out of hotel banquet rooms and about life in Cloud City. The Planet Comicon's website makes it clear that he's only going to be available for a short time both days.

But the really good news here is that we have an excuse to watch Williams' brilliant work in Colt 45 commercials from the 1980s. The classic one is above. After the jump, there's a stranger, more conceptual one that surely is either based on Williams' role as Harvey Dent in Tim Burton's 1989 Batman or led to his casting in the role.
