Billy Dee Williams Performs 'Star Wars' Cantina Karaoke, Natch


There isn't much that can make a Monday morning feel like a relaxing Saturday night with your bros down at the Mos Eisley Cantina, but the embedded four minutes and 44 seconds above should do the trick, provided you're into the smooth sounds of the dulcet singing voice of one Lando Calrissian.

Indeed, the gentlemen of the "Nerdist" crew got together and started a charity cleverly (but predictably, because they're nerds) called "Course of the Force," a relay race in the mold of "Star Wars" with proceeds going to the Los Angeles Make-A-Wish Foundation. To promote said race, they're doing things like filming Billy Dee Williams singing karaoke at a replica of the Mos Eisley Cantina from the original "Star Wars."

And, friends, I must say, the result is magic. Or, "Force"-ish, am I right? No, we'll stick with magic, sorry.

Patton Oswalt and Chris Hardwick co-star in the video, but this is Lando's show, and the lasting image you'll have is just how good Billy Dee looks and sounds a full 30 years after he piloted his buddy Han's Millennium Falcon to destroy the new Death Star. I mean I know the "Star Wars" franchise (rightfully) launched the career of Harrison Ford... but Lando was just as cool, no? Right? Guys?

There's still time, Hollywood. There's still time to make Billy Dee Williams the star he should have always been. Let's do this.
