If you're a fan of Glee and Star Wars, you've had a lot to be excited about lately. For example, this week's episode featured Blaine (Darren Criss) creating his Star Wars fan fiction. Now, a star of the original sci-fi trilogy is about to pop up on Glee.

On April 10, Billy Dee Williams — who played Lando Calrissian in the films  announced via Twitter that he is headed for Glee. "Star Wars Geeks... please join the Gleeks in welcoming me on my upcoming episode on Glee! #Glee #FOX," he writes. 

How amazing is that! We're now extremely curious as to what kind of character he'll play. Maybe he'll play himself and make Blaine completely freak out upon meeting him?

Billy Dee is certainly enjoying a moment right now. He was a contestant on the ongoing Dancing With the Stars Season 18, having just left the show. And this must be an exciting time for him because of the Star Wars reboot that's currently being filmed.

So we're thrilled that he's going to appear on Glee. Let's just hope his character doesn't freeze any of the other characters in carbonite.

Are you looking forward to seeing Billy Dee on Glee?
