The Clones from Star Wars Episode II Were Almost Modeled After Which Actor?

Vin Diesel
Ty Diggs
Harrison Ford
Billy Dee Williams

Answer: Billy Dee Williams

In Star Wars Episode II: Attack of the Clones, a story line unfolds revolving around an army of cloned soldiers which, in the course of the movie, it is revealed have been cloned off of on hardy and feared intergalactic bounty hunter: Jango Fett.

What audiences didn’t know, however, is that George Lucas had toyed with the idea of Lando Calrissian, played by actor Billy Dee Williams in the original Star Wars trilogy, being revealed as a clone from a planet of clones that caused the “Clone Wars”.

All the clones would then effectively be copies of Williams and his character, Lando, would be one of tens of thousands of clones from his home world. Early in the development stage the idea was scrapped and Lando Calrissian stayed just a regular old human from the planet Socorro.
