Billy Dee Williams

I'll Do the Next 'Star Wars'

... If They Ask

EXCLUSIVE

040814_billy_dee_williams_launch_v2 Lando Calrissian hasn't gotten the call yet from Luke, Han or Leia to be in the next "Star Wars" film, but Billy Dee Williams says he'll be there ... if they want him.

TMZ spotted Cloud City's finest citizen after doing a little food shopping. Williams -- who looks AMAZING for 77 -- hadn't heard the new "Star Wars" film had already begun shooting because so far ... no one has asked him to be in it.

With Harrison Ford, Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher and Peter Mayhew all expected to reprise their roles, Williams says he'd be more than happy to join the fun if he got the call.

We're not saying "Star Wars: Episode VII" would suck without Billy Dee ... but why take chances?

I don't think they gave the real reason why he quit "Dancing with the Stars". He claimed a "back problem", yet when his grandson came out, Billie bent over & lifted the boy up & held him. It likely was just too strenuous for him, which is understandable. Ridiculous how they expect elderly people to compete on that show. Mickey Rooney,aged 93, completed a movie last year. So with a little assistance, Billie could probably be in a movie. It's hard being old folks.
