Billy Dee Williams back as Colt 45 spokesman

Is it 1983 or 2016?

"Star Wars" is a big screen blockbuster and Billy Dee Williams is the new face of the same adult beverage he peddled in the 1980s -- Colt 45.

Williams, who not only found fame as Lando Calrissian in the original "Star Wars" trilogy, was the spokesman for the malt liquor brand in 1986, USA Today reported.

He's now appearing in a new 15-second teaser spot released Monday that promotes an upcoming marketing campaign.

The company said it tapped Williams again since he "played a major role in the success of Colt 45," USA Today reported.
