CONFIRMED: Childish Gambino Will Be Playing Lando Calrissian in Han Solo Spin-Off

Well, it’s official! The directors of the movie, Phil Lord and Christopher Miller, have finally spoken up and confirmed that the rumours are indeed true! They even candidly apologised for ruining comic con for Childish Gambino forever. :p
