Donald Faison’s Chronicles of Lando Calrissian

Bonnie Burton | May 6, 2009

Donald Faison, who plays Turk in the comedy Scrubs, was on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon where he showed off his Star Wars cred (he’s seen The Empire Strikes Back over 300 times) and pitched his new TV idea The Chronicles of Lando Calrissian, starring, of course, himself as Lando.

It’d be The Chronicles of Lando Calrissian starring Donald Faison. I’d be Lando. And it would be before he lost the Millennium Falcon to Han Solo in that Sabacc game. And we would be cruising across the galaxy in the Falcon gettin’ chicks, drinking ale. And the hair would be phenomenal! I’d have to wear a wig or what we could do is just shave my head for back in the day when Lando used to shave his head. He’d have a whole new crew. It would be before Episode IV. So Episode 3.5 or 3.6.

He loved the idea so much that he even made a stop-motion animation movie of what it would look like with toys that he showed on Late Night. Not surprising, his love for Star Wars influenced him so much that he ended up taking a stop-motion class when he was just a kid. He shows the clip to Jimmy and makes the sound effects off to the side. Awesome!
