Star Wars’ Billy Dee Williams Defends Harrison Ford

Lando Calrissian & Han Solo

Even though Lando Calrissian might have betrayed Han Solo in the Empire Strikes Back, Billy Dee Williams most definitely has Harrison Ford’s back. When a fan at the Wizard World Nashville Comic Con asked how big of a jerk Harrison Ford was, Williams quickly defended his fellow Star Wars actor.

“Why would you say that? That’s interesting,” said Williams. “Why would you say he’s a jerk?”

After the fan explained that’s just what he had heard that people say about Harrison Ford, Williams said, “No, he’s a good man. He’s a very good man. And you can tell, for me anyway, you can tell a lot about a man by the way he deals with his children. And he’s beautiful with his sons, so I have a lot of respect for him.”

Williams added, “He’s a good man. He’s a very bright person.”
