Donald Glover’s mom’s advice to son on Lando casting: Don’t mess it up


It appears that Donald Glover’s family isn’t quite as overjoyed as the rest of the Internet is about the news that Glover has been tapped to play young Lando Calrissian in the upcoming Han Solo movie.

During an interview with Ellen DeGeneres on her talk show, Glover joked (I think), “I told my dad immediately. My mom was in the back, she was like, ‘Don’t mess it up.’ She was like, ‘Don’t mess this up!’ Cause Billy Dee is like—that’s hers.”

No doubt, Glover’s mom is overjoyed to see her son so quickly ascend to stardom this year. From his hit TV show Atlanta to his casting as young Lando, this has indeed been the year of Glover. That being said, his mom’s advice surely stands for everyone who is expecting nothing but greatness in this upcoming Han film. Listen to your mother, Donald!
