NOW: Billy Dee Williams
One of the few actors in “Star Wars” who had established a career prior to the original trilogy, Williams’ profile increased dramatically following his success as the suave Lando Calrissian. He has since starred in dozens of movies and TV shows, but his most visible post-“Star Wars” role may have been that of spokesperson for malt liquor Colt 45. He recently competed on the current season of "Dancing with the Stars," but left the show due to a back injury. Unfortunately, Williams was not included in the official casting announcement for "Episode VII." —XFINITY Entertainment Staff (Photo by Jason Merritt/Getty Images)
