According to new reports posted on Making Star Wars and The Hollywood Reporter, 80’s action star Michael Biehn will be part of the cast of Season 2 of The Mandalorian live-action Disney+ series. Biehn is most famous for his iconic roles as Kyle Reese in 1984’s The Terminator and Corporal Hicks in 1986’s Aliens.
Sources say Biehn will be playing a bounty hunter who has a history with the titular character, Din Djarin. It is unclear at this time if Biehn’s bounty hunter will be a friend or foe of Djarin, nor do we know exactly how his character will play into the overall story arc of Season 2.
Biehn joins Rosario Dawson (Ahsoka Tano) as the latest Hollywood stars to have been linked to the Disney+ series. As always, we await official confirmation of these castings from Lucasfilm/Disney.
Season 2 of The Mandalorian is set to debut sometime in October.
