While Donald Glover's casting as Lando Calrissian in the upcoming Han Solo film was one of the illest things that we absolutely can't wait for, the cast they are assembling for this project has been pretty damn amazing as well. Glover joins Alden Ehrenreich, who will be playing a young Han Solo, alongside Emilia Clarke, Woody Harrelson, Thandie Newton, and more, and while all of these stars couldn't fit into the first photo from the Han Solo set, it looks like the next shot will include one more familiar face: Michael K. Williams.

Variety reports that Williams has been added to this packed cast. Production on the currently-untitled Han Solo movie is already underway, but we won't see it in theaters until May 25, 2018.

Fans of The WireBoardwalk Empire, and Sundance's current series Hap and Leonard definitely know of Williams; Hap and Leonard's second season kicks off on March 15. As of now, there's no word on who Williams will be playing, and we don't have much in the way of a plot for this film, aside from knowing that it—like Rogue One—takes place before Star Wars IV: A New Hope.

If you weren't excited for this movie before, you better be now!
