Star Wars | Nick Nolte Joins the Cast of The Mandalorian

The Hollywood legend joins the cast of Jon Favreau’s highly anticipated Star Wars series…

Just weeks after adding Pedro Pascal and Gina Carano to the cast of Star Wars: The Mandalorian, Variety is reporting that none other than Hollywood legend Nick Nolte has joined the cast in an unnamed role.

Star Wars | Nick Nolte Joins the Cast of The Mandalorian

Nick Nolte has joined the cast of the upcoming “Star Wars” streaming series “The Mandalorian, ” Variety has confirmed with sources.

The series, which will air on the streaming service Disney+, will also star Pedro Pascal and Gina Carano. Like the other previously announced cast members, the exact details of Nolte’s character are being kept under wraps. Jon Favreau penned the series, which is set after the fall of the Empire and before the emergence of the First Order. It follows the travails of a lone gunfighter in the outer reaches of the galaxy far from the authority of the New Republic.

This is also not Nolte’s first brush with the “Star Wars” universe. The actor has previously spoken about the fact he was on a short list of actors considered to play Han Solo before Harrison Ford was cast in the iconic role.

This news comes just days after rumours surfaced that Predator and Rocky legend Carl Weathers has joined the cast. Disney, however, is yet to confirm either appointment but if these reports are proven to be true Jon Favreau is assembling one hell of a cast.
