Where's Lando?

That's the question that has been asked since Disney and J.J. Abrams announced the cast for Star Wars: Episode VII which sees the return of original actors Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher and Harrison Ford.

Billy Dee Williams was not named among them, who played Lando Calrissian in Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi.

Twitter lit up with disgruntled fans, and Billy Dee Williams retweeted a batch of them; so it's thought that most likely Billy Dee Williams didn't turn down an offer to appear in Star Wars: Episode VII.

Casting for Star Wars: Episode VII isn't totally complete as-of-yet; so it might be possible that Billy Dee Williams could cameo. Or is it possible seeing how Lando Calrissian first appeared in Episode V - that he might be appearing as Lando in Episode VIII?

Here are some tweets:
