Say what you like about it, but the film is taking a massive gamble in casting a straight white male as the lead of a Star Wars film.

Damn that quota system.

Maybe over his two centuries Chewie has found a little time for the love that dare not growl its name?  Although personally I'm hoping against hope that Lando is revealed as bi at the very least, if only to learn how loud the man-babies can scream.

You think a straight man could pull off wearing that cape?

I have it on good authority* that while the actor who plays Han Solo through most of the film will definitely be a white male, the character will in fact be revealed to be transgender, born Anne Solo.

The fact he was able to father Ben Solo perhaps goes to show the advances in Sci-fi tech. Or maybe Ben was another product of those saucy midichlorians.

Recasting Lando with a black actor is going too far.
