Glover's Lando Calrissian Makes His TV Debut, Weeks Ahead of Solo Release

Donald Glover hosted Saturday Night Live last night and gave fans a taste of what to expect from his take on Lando Calrissian ahead of Solo: A Star Wars Story.

In the SNL skit, which you can watch below, Glover's Calrissian hosts a summit for all of the black people in Space. As Calrissian takes to the podium, he begins to explain that the idea for the summit spawned a single question: Where the hell are all the black humans in space? He continues by saying he believed he was the only one for a time, but that after bringing everyone together, he realized he was one of a few in the entire galaxy. This leads to the camera cutting away to a large room filled with just three guest,s as they tepidly clap in response and look around at the empty chairs surrounding them. "I'll say it, the turnout was a little low."

The skit ends with Glover's Calrissian explaining that prior to making a living playing cards -- and doing "other stuff that's not really explained" -- he wanted to be a singer. He then begins singing an ode to making love in Space, that is appropriately titled "Making Love in Space."
