In an effort to prove their manliness, the men of ABC’s upcoming comedy Man Up hook up with an all-time favorite one from Star Wars.

Who’s the real man from a galaxy far, far away?

It’s Billy Dee Williams!

Lando Calrissian, er, Williams, plays himself in a scene in which Kenny (Dan Fogler) meets one of his all-time favorite heroes. Williams will appear in episode later this autumn that starts shooting next week in Los Angeles.

In case you’ve forgotten (and don’t say you’re trying to) Man Up! “follows the struggles of three modern male archetypes as they search for their identities and try to prove that “real men.” It debuts Oct. 18 and also stars Mather Zickel and Christopher Moynihan. Here’s the official poster:
