Nick Nolte joins the cast of Disney and Jon Favreau's new Star Wars series, The Mandalorian.
It's further confirmed that Pedro Pascal has signed on as has Gina Carano.
No details about 77-year-old Nolte or Carano's characters are known, but it is known that The Mandalorian is set after the fall of the Empire and before the emergence of the First Order. The series follows the travails of a lone gunfighter (Pedro Pascal) in the outer reaches of the galaxy far from the authority of the New Republic, and Pascal plays a character from the same warrior tribe as Jango and Boba Fett.
The series is written and executive produced by Emmy-nominated producer and actor Jon Favreau, as previously announced, with Dave Filoni (Star Wars: The Clone Wars, Star Wars Rebels) directing the first episode.
Additional episodic directors include Deborah Chow (Jessica Jones), Rick Famuyiwa (Dope), Bryce Dallas Howard (Solemates), and Taika Waititi (Thor: Ragnarok).
The Mandalorian is executive produced by Jon Favreau, Dave Filoni, Kathleen Kennedy, and Colin Wilson. Karen Gilchrist will serve as co-executive producer.
LucasFilm also recently announced a Star Wars Rogue One prequels series for the Disney+ app starring Diego Luna.
