    Billy Dee Williams & Emma Slater - Season 18


    Billy Dee Williams
    Season 18

    Pro: Emma Slater


    Legendary leading man Billy Dee Williams was often touted as the "black Clark Gable," especially after his co-starring role in Lady Sings the Blues, opposite Diana Ross. George Lucas tapped him to play the scoundrel Lando Calrissian in The Empire Strikes Back, and The Return of the Jedi. He also played the district attorney Harvey Dent in 1989's Batman. Williams's many films include The Ladies Man, Undercover Brother, The Visit, Fanboys, Barry Munday, and Constellation opposite Gabrielle Union. Most recently, the iconic Williams appeared in the blockbuster film The Lego Movie.

    In 2006, the NAACP recognized Williams for his immense contribution to the arts by awarding him the Lifetime Achievement Award. His television appearances include Lost, Private Practice, and Scrubs.

    In addition to his impressive acting career, Williams is also a very accomplished artist and has a painting on display at the Smithsonian.

    You & me both. When I first read he was going to be on I hoped he still had his looks. If the picture above is any indication, he does!

    I love Billy Dee, too. I remember enjoying his performance with Diahann Carroll in one of the early seasons of White Collar. I can't help but wonder if they'll incorporate Lando Calrissian into on of their dances. Great casting choice. His age (77) may work against him, but I don't care.

    Well, I can clearly see one of the early fan favorites.
