Kelee Ringo as Lando Calrissian

Kelee Ringo would make the perfect Lando Calrissian because both are so clutch at the moment and know how to make greatness happen.

Calrissian is an entrepreneur, gambler, and smuggler that Han Solo introduced to the story. He owned the Millennium Falcon before Solo, and while he was a bit iffy at first, he came around to being one of the most helpful members of the rebellion.

Ringo is also not afraid to go for things, and he is also loyal to his teammates.

Both are undervalued characters and often overlooked even though they are highly talented. However, when push came to shove, Calrissian and Ringo both delivered in the most significant moments of their careers.

They saved the galaxy, and both became fan favorites because of it. Ringo was a favorite before his national championship pick-six, but that made him a legend.

Calrissian redeemed himself after allowing Darth Vader to lay a trap to kidnap Luke Skywalker, and we choose to look past that because what he did, later on, was for the good guys. That moment he chose the rebels over the Empire was when we all knew he was an incredible character.

He is extremely undervalued, and part of us feels like until the Pick-six Ringo was in the same boat. Ringo would be a great Calrissian because both have big personalities and a smile that would convince anyone to do anything.
