Lucasfilm took their time to officially reveal what was known for quite a while now. But the official Star Wars website finally reveals some of the cast members for The Mandalorian and it is confirmed that Pedro Pascal will be the titular character in the upcoming Disney+ Star Wars series. Also confirmed was that Carl Weathers, Gina Carano and Nick Nolte have roles in the series. However, there were also some new (some of them rumored before) cast members announced! Click through for more!
As the photo may have teased, Werner Herzog joins the cast of the Mandalorian as well. Herzog is more known for his documentaries in recent years and before that he became quite famous for directing various movies with German movie star Klaus Kinski.
Also joining the cast will be Giancarlo Esposito (you know him as Gus Fring from Breaking Bad and Better Caul Saul), Emily Swallow (Amara on Supernatural and more recently providing the voice for Lisa Tepes on Castlevania) and Omid Abtahi (Salim in American Gods).
But come one, freaking Werner Herzog in Star Wars? Who would have ever thought that? Let him direct an episode! A movie! A trilogy. What do I say… septology!
Anyway, the cast seems to be very strong and The Mandalorian, at least when it comes to the showrunner, directors and actors is off to a promising start! Below the photos of the newly announced cast members that were not featured on JTA before.
