We are thrilled that we have found a way to nominate Lando Calrissian….er…Billy Dee Williams, who could be one of the coolest men of all time. As Negro League pitcher, Bingo Long, Williams uses his signature charm to start his own breakaway barnstorming Baseball team, and formed the most entertaining team in Baseball. The movie had its moments, but failed to capture a sizable audience…at least not as much as he did as Lando…or even when he pitched Colt 45.
The Bullet Points:
The Bingo Long All-Stars & Travelling Motor Kings (1976)
Billy Dee Williams
The Bingo Long All Stars
Why you should vote for him:
If the Hall is based on charm, it is hard to better than Billy Dee.
Why you should not vote for him:
The film was not a huge hit, nor did it achieve cult status.
