Billy Dee Williams has booked a guest-starring role on ABC's hit comedy Modern Family.

Williams will be playing himself in the 13th episode of the season, titled New Year's Eve.

In the episode, Jay (Ed O'Neill) takes the family to Palm Springs to celebrate New Year's Eve together and meets Billy Dee Williams over a game of cards.

Williams' name has been heavy in the news recently, as speculation that Lando Calrissian might be rebooted for the new Star Wars trilogy, although no one knows how exactly?
