Star Wars movie deal like Han Solo

The New York Times discusses George Lucas's new movie, Red Tails in "George Lucas Is Ready to Roll the Credits"

Lucas first heard the story of the Tuskegee Airmen from a friend, the photographer George Hall, in 1988. It appealed on a visceral level — "I’m a fan of fast things" — and also because, despite criticism that "Star Wars" was too white, Lucas has always had an interest in civil rights. Back in the 1970s, Lucas almost cast an African-American as Han Solo (Glynn Turman, who played the first Baltimore mayor in "The Wire").

... which is more than Woody Allen can say.
