An article posted on The Hollywood Reporter states that award-winning actor Nick Nolte has joined the cast of Jon Favreau’s live-action Star Wars series The Mandalorian. Sources over at Variety as well as The Wrap have reportedly confirmed the casting in addition to THR (oh, and Entertainment Weekly too). Details on the name/type of character Nolte will be playing in the series are unknown at this time.
Veteran actor Nick Nolte has joined the cast of The Mandalorian, the live-action Star Wars series that will launch on Disney’s streaming Service, Disney+.
The known cast includes Pedro Pascal and Gina Carano. The series is already in production and is heavy on visual effects, costumes and make-up, which will allow actors to come and go as well as, in some cases, be cast later in the production process than usual.
Nolte joins previously-reported Pedro Pascal, Gina Carano, and Carl Weathers as actors/actresses who have been attached to the project, but have yet to be officially confirmed by either Lucasfilm or Disney.
We’ll post more on this casting news as we hear it.
