At times we wish we were Jean Grey (well, actually all the time), because dang would we like to telepathically overhear what was discussed at this meeting.
Donald Glover -- set to play the young Lando Calrissian in the Han Solo spin-off movie tracing the latter's origins -- was recently spotted in Los Angeles lunching with none other than Billy Dee Williams, aka the old(er) Lando Calrissian featured in The Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi. We know this because a generous soul @GODDOLLARS on Twitter slyly captured this photo.

Billy Dee spilled to The Hollywood Reporter that the lunch was fun, and the two chatted and got to know each other, with Donald asking some questions about Lando.
Donald Glover had previously told Sci-Fi Magazine that he's not planning on copying Billy Dee's Lando performance -- nor does he think he could: "I think the point of all of this is just to make people believe you, so I just keep thinking about that. I'm not Billy Dee Williams; I am not that cool. I don't think anyone is, really, but I just had to make it believable. I had to do my own 'cool.'"
Filming for the Han Solo movie began on Monday. Little is known about the plot, save it shows the early life of Han (played by Alden Enhrenreich) and will also star Emilia Clarke, Tessa Thompson, Zoe Kravitz and Woody Harrelson (who kinda sorta admitted he'd be playing Star Wars Legends character Garris Strike).
What do you think about the Han movie -- excited or lukewarm? Also, more importantly, what do you think Billy Dee and Donald ate?
