Lando Calrissian - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (1836 words)
Lando served as gunner for Han on the Falcon, but the heroes of the war against the Empire were not enough, and the Rejuvenator and most of her complement of ships were destroyed.
Lando Calrissian was the only character in the original Star Wars trilogy to be visibly played by a fl actor, Billy Dee Williams (though James Earl Jones supplied the voice of Darth Vader, and a Rebel pilot in Return of the Jedi can briefly be seen to be fl before being shot down by Imperials).
It is surmised that one of the character functions of Calrissian is to act as a Han Solo surrogate.
