Williams started his career with roles in the films “Diana Ross in Lady Sings The Blues” and “Mahogany.” Williams also had Emmy-nominated performances in “Brian’s Song.” Many of the fans at Comic Con know Williams as the smooth-talking smuggler Lando Calrissian in the Star Wars Series.
Some people like myself remember those smooth Colt 45 commercials in the ’80s and ’90s. Williams recently shot a commercial about Black wealth.
Corey Dee Williams worked as his dad’s stand-in while filming Return of the Jedi. Before becoming a fitness and lifestyle coach, Corey also worked behind the scenes in filmmaking.
