Donald Glover is one of the busiest dudes in the industry. He’s got a new series on television with Atlanta, a thriving music career (with an awesome new album just released), and is joining one of the biggest franchises in history as a young Lando Calrissian in the upcoming Han Solo Film.

Lando himself is one of the iconic characters of the franchise, originally portrayed by Billy Dee Williams, undoubtedly a heavy weight to carry forward. But Glover appears to be taking it in stride. Our own Anastasia Washington asked him how he is dealing with those pressures of such a beloved character. Glover‘s answer is indeed very Billy Dee:

You just gotta take it like Lando would take it and just be cool about it.”

The Han Solo Film will be the next installment in the Star Wars Stories series, following Rogue One.
