So, it sounds like all the Big Guys are heading back to a galaxy far, far away for Star Wars: Episode VII — The Force Awakens. But how about the not-so-big-but-still-pretty-important-guys? Are they making a comeback too? Well, maybe.

The only news we've heard regarding returning as Lando Calrissian was gleamed from a gas station ambush carried out by some guy over at TMZ. That was about three months ago. Since then, Lando's name hasn't featured in any of the big discussions. Well, that is until now. At the recent Monster Mania Convention, Film Buff directly asked Williams whether he'd also be making a return. He simply replied that he had been approached by Abrams, but he had yet to make a decision.

Of course, for us it seems like a no-brainer. Why wouldn't he immediately jump at the opportunity to return? Well, he is 76 years old now, so perhaps this combined with the no doubt stressful filming schedule for Star Wars is factoring into his decision. In any case, I'm quietly optimistic.

What do you think? Does Lando need to make a return, or do we already have enough familiar faces? Let us know your opinion below.
