Billy Dee Williams Is Getting into Shape with a Workout and New Diet

Following an appearance at a fan convention, a new report suggests that Billy Dee Williams is preparing to get into shape. Whether he is just looking after his health or he is preparing for Star Wars Episode IX is unclear for now.


According to the official Twitter account of MegaCon Orlando, which had an appearance from Williams, the actor is working out more frequently and is on a diet:




Williams has been working only as a voice actor in the last few years and if this workout is connected with a new project, it most likely would be a potential appearance in J.J. Abrams’ Episode IX. If the 81 years old actor does appear in Episode IX, his role will probably not be very big, because of his age and health. If you recall, both Mark Hamill and Carrie Fisher had similar health regimens prior to filming The Force Awakens (despite the fact that Hamill had only 2 scenes in the movie with no dialogue), and it’s possible that Williams is doing the same for Episode IX.


For now, take this with a grain of salt, but this is a step in the right direction to seeing Lando back for one more adventure, especially after the Donald Glover’s praised role in Solo: A Star Wars Story as a younger version of the character.
