Lucasfilm and Disney are hard at work with the #HanSolo spinoff. While the studio's decision to move forward with a solo (hah) story exploring our favorite smuggler's younger years was at first met with skepticism, the film has been shaping up nicely.
If you're amazed at the incredible star power the movie has, strap in and get ready to add yet another name to that list. Because Michael K. Williams (The Wire, Assassin's Creed, 12 Years A Slave, Snitch) has just joined the film.
Unfortunately, no details were given about his character. We do know that Woody Harrelson is already playing Han's mentor, so he's likely not up for that type of role. That's not a bad thing, though, as Michael can play a pretty awesome bad guy. To find out for yourself, I recommend you watch Snitch; he plays... well a not-so-nice guy in it, and it's incredible. And, of course, his phenomenal performance as the violent and complex Omar Little in The Wire.

Williams joins Alden Ehrenreich (Han Solo), Donald Glover (Lando Calrissian), Emilia Clarke, Woody Harrelson, Thandie Newton, Phoebe Waller-Bridge and Joonas Suotamo as Chewbacca. Han Solo hits theaters on May 25, 2018.
Who do you think Williams is playing? Do you think he's playing a villain or a hero? Let me know in the comments!
