Actually he just wasn't approached for Episode 7 - http://attackofthefa...wars-episode-8/

 

He isn't the lean sex symbol of his youth, but he still appears in things.  He was just in Dancing with the Stars a few seasons ago.  He didn't do great, but seemed to really enjoy his time doing it.    According to IMDB it looks like he's in the upcoming TV remake of Dirty Dancing as well.  It's entirely possible that they avoided him in the first movie because they just didn't want it to be all cameos and coincidental meetings.

I can break this down for you easily enough. Billy Dee Williams isn't young anymore. He most likely doesn't look like the lean, sexy man he was in his youth. And he has most likely decided that he doesn't want to do live-action roles. That's his choice. He probably doesn't mind doing animated roles because they don't require him to be in front of a camera, and he does have a very pleasant voice. I really enjoyed the in-joke of hearing him play two-face in the Lego Batman Movie. That was a nice nod.

He was in his early forties when Empire was filmed, and is now near 80. Of course he isn't going to look the same, but that could have been used in his favor. The theme of how time changes people, which provided one of the best Force Awakening scenes with the Han and Leia reunion, could have been explored even more thoroughly through a character whose lifestyle aging would have a further impact on. Maybe he could be lamenting his waning powers to attract women, like Jack Nicholson in Terms of Endearment, getting women by trading on his status as a hero, but finds new purpose with a new threat to the galaxy. Or, they could go in the other direction with him traveling further in the direction of the path of responsibility he was on, and at some point in the 30 year gap found a nice woman, settled down, and became a father (or grandfather), and now approaches this new threat from a different life situation. Wherever they decide to take the character, his finding out about Han's death could provide interesting fireworks, and if he's really that upset about his looks, they could always do like they did with Peter Cushing except instead of recreating young Lando, they could create an ideally aged version of himself.

Was also supposed to be in Batman Returns where he'd become Two-Face, but they replaced him with Walken's Max Schreck character, and apparently Joel Schumacher favored Tommy Lee Jones for the part in Batman Forever. However, in Batman the Animated Series, Harvey was an African American who bore a resemblance to Williams.

He's been Caucasian in every major representation, except for the first Batman film (and Lego Batman.)

I just went down a major Google rabbit hole in search of black Harvey before you posted. Short version: not black.

The one from the original animated series could easily have been African American.  But for grins, here's yet ANOTHER example.

Apprrently, this is a rehashed VERY old argument.  Also, don't forget the Tangent universe.  He was 100% African American  :P

Yes, Billy Dee Williams selection as Harvey Dent in the 1989 Tim Burton Batman film was considered fairly progressive. It always irked me slightly that he never got a chance to play Two-Face. I honestly think he would have been a good fit for that role. Having him voice Two-Face in the Lego Batman movie was a subtle little nod to this discrepancy.

 

The Lego Batman Movie was filled with these little touches, innumerable subtle jabs and references to Batman's long history in pop culture. I'm going to have to go over it frame-by-frame when it comes out on home video just to catch everything.

He'd of probably been a better Two-Face than Tommy Lee Jones, who looked like an idiot trying to out mug Jim Carrey. Williams would have likely played the role with his usual swagger, and made Carrey look like the scenery-chewing fool he was. However, like most every Joel Schumacher film, it still would have sucked, but less so.

I have extras of all of the sets released at the 99 Cents Only stores, except for Unikitty and the Scooby Doo Team pack.  My daughter and I just got into Lego Dimensions, so I'm looking to trade for any other sets.  I would prefer shipping the sets without boxes to save money, but arrangements can be made if you prefer they remain sealed in their original packaging.  PM me if interested.

There's a separate thread for 99 cent store posts. Anyone interested in Dimensions reads both threads. No need to post the same thing twice.

I was able to pick up 5 more Green Arrows and clean out the GS by my house.  The kinda bad news is that I've picked up all of the dollar store sets I need as well as extras to put up at my desk.  I'm willing to look at trade lists, but I'm now looking to sell these for $13 Amazon shipped first class with DC in a bubble mailer (which is still significantly cheaper than eBay).

 

For those who I said I was going to sell for $12, I'm sorry.  These cost $2.67 just to ship.  I'm bumping the cost a dollar to offset the shipping/packing cost.

If anyone is stuck with any of the Ninjago or Chima sets I'm looking to buy. I don't need the Chima Cragger or the Ninjago Team Pack but everything else is fair game. If possible would like to buy as many as possible from the same person and sending out of the boxes is fine with me.

Same skin tone as Bruce Wayne just different hair style.  Yeah, he could be "light-skin-ded" or swirly, (southern) Italian/Greek/Spanish/Mediterranean or other "dark" white, maybe.  Regardless, definitely originated from Africa if you go back far enough as did we all.

 

Let's just call him Sicilian, even though "Dent" is about as Italian as Smith.

Friendly GS guy just gave me the rest of their Green Arrow polybags as he was tired of looking at them.

Not looking to make any money off them but I also don't want to pay for shipping out six of these guys. PM me if you want one and want to trade something or pay for shipping.

I currently have all released Lego Dimensions sets, but am open to offers for just about anything else or again, just footing the shipping cost.

Preemptive RIP inbox.

 

EDIT:

 

6 Green Arrows claimed - 0 left

All of mine have been spoken for. Hopefully achilles can hook up whose who need them still. I might hit a couple more area stores and see what I can scrounge until every CAG has a GA.

I tried to score a Green Arrow or two in my area today with no luck. I checked 4 stores buying something small at each store to butter them up to no avail.

Loot Crate's Facebook page has been deleting the complaints about the Lego Dimensions item not being exclusive, despite the fact that the page for Loot Crate states under FEATURES that the items are "Licensed & Exclusive". This is my first time ordering with them and I'm definitely not going to order another one ever. I wish I had known beforehand that unboxing videos usually pop up before the ordering deadline.

Same on all accounts. Major disappointment and I'm never buying into loot crate again. What a scam.

No offense but how could anyone think loot crate could pull that off? I can't think of any instance of lego providing that kind of exclusivity to a partner. I was thinking of subbing to loot crate once but outside of shirts, mugs, and postcards everything with any manufacturing effort is just bought off the shelf.

Well, there was no guarantee it was a game figure. It could have just been a little exclusive keychain or a shirt or something. I'd have honestly preferred anything else over getting a non-exclusive character that I already own.

They just went really cheap. I'm sure if they tossed in a Supergirl or Green Arrow, people would have been a lot less stressed. 
But one of the first batch of funpacks that are all over the place for $1-5? That's a super-bummer.
