Billy Dee Williams Joins ABC's Dirty Dancing Remake

Lando is heading to the Catskills

Liam Mathews

Star Warsstar Billy Dee Williams has been cast in ABC's upcoming Dirty Dancing remake as Tito, the resort's bandleader. He joins previously announced stars Abigail Breslin, Debra Messing, Nicole Scherzinger, Sarah Hyland and Colt Prattes.

Tito was played by Charles 'Honi' Coles in the 1987 original.

In 2014, Williams joined the Season 18 cast of Dancing with the Stars, but dropped out in Week 2 due to a chronic back injury.

Do you think Lando Calrissian is a good fit for a TV movie remake?
