Cosmic Book News has been shying from reporting on Star Wars rumors as of late: a) because most of them are probably BS, and b) Abrams did say some are true, and I actually want to be able to enjoy the movie when it comes out this December.

However, this latest news is too good to pass up as the Boston Herald is reporting Billy Dee Williams will be returning as Lando Calrissian for Star Wars: The Force Awakens.

Williams previously made comments that he was unsure if he would be appearing, but would like to do so, and if this report happens to be true, Williams and Star Wars fans have been granted their wish.

"It will be a fun cameo. Billy's definitely up for it," a source told the Boston Herald.

The same report also suggests Simon Pegg may make a cameo as well.

"Star Wars: The Force Awakens" has a December 18, 2015 release directed by J.J. Abrams from a screenplay by Lawrence Kasdan and Abrams. Kathleen Kennedy, J.J. Abrams, and Bryan Burk are producing, and John Williams returns as the composer.

Actors John Boyega, Daisy Ridley, Adam Driver, Oscar Isaac, Andy Serkis, Domhnall Gleeson, Max von Sydow, Lupita Nyong'o and Gwendoline Christie will join the original stars of the saga, Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher, Mark Hamill, Anthony Daniels, Peter Mayhew, and Kenny Baker in the new film.
