Han Solo said he and Lando Calrissian went “way back” in The Empire Strikes Back, and now in Solo: A Star Wars Story, we’ll find out what he meant. But, don’t expect Lando to be just another version of Han. The new Lando actor — the polymath actor and musician Donald Glover — says the two aren’t really that similar. Specifically, Lando is more interested in playing the system than beating it.

“Lando likes rules because he’s somebody who is in a position to benefit from rules,” Glover said in an Entertainment Weekly interview published on Thursday. “He’s smart enough to figure out a way to like get out of things, like loopholes, And I think Han is more of a rule breaker and he can kind of get away with it.”

Glover also commented on the fact that Lando is tidier than Han Solo in almost every way. “He’s a very particular person with particular tastes and he likes the comforts of life…his clothing is another spice of life. He takes pride in the clothing. It makes things easier. When people see you and you’re debonair, they tend to want to give you stuff easier.”

Donald Glover as Lando. 

In the original films, and various novels and comics — canon and Legends alike — Lando has always been someone trying to find an angle that could benefit him and him alone. In the old L. Neil Smith books, Lando thinks of himself as a kind of artist, and his art is being a conman.

One of Lando’s long-cons in current canon is convincing a bunch of people that he’s no good with a blaster, even though, he’s like a perfect shot. It remains to be seen if Lando will be running this con on everyone in Solo or not.

One of the latest challenges to hit Fortnite: Battle Royale requires a steady aim and lightning fast reflexes if you want to succeed at the shooting galleries in this Week 4 challenge, though you’ll have to find them first. Less serious dancing is reserved for a totally different challenge this week.

Back in September, a huge Super Smash Bros. Ultimate leak listed 10 characters allegedly coming to the new roster. At the time we ranked, putting one possible addition from the Fire Emblem universe near the bottom of our list, but based on a compelling new argument it may be time to rethink that ranking.

Gone are the days of “search between” and “treasure maps,” because Fortnite: Battle Royale’s location-based challenges these days involve multiple steps and dancing on top of random landmarks. So where can players dance on top of a Clock Tower, a Pink Tree, and a Porcelain Throne?

Fortnite Season 6, Week 4 kicked off Thursday morning, and with it came the typical seven new challenges. This week, however, they’re all fairly difficult, or otherwise just involve a lot of work. The fifth challenge initially just reads “Dance on top of a Clock Towers,” but it’s essentially one of the multi-stage challenges that we’ve seen before. This time around, however, it’s a bit misleading because it doesn’t actually say “Stage 1” in the title.

With less than two weeks before Halloween, Epic Games is starting to get a little bit more festive with a new Fortnite: Battle Royale Challenge in Week 4. “Ring the doorbell of a house with an opponent inside in different matches” is a very wordy way of telling players to go trick-or-treating.

The Fortnite: Battle Royale Season 6 Hunting Party Challenge continues, and much like Week 3, the focus of the new secret loading screen is Fable, the character that looks like a badass Little Red Riding Hood. We’ve got all the details on how to solve this new loading screen puzzle and the secret this week, but just like in Week 2, there’s a secret banner instead of a battle star.
