According to The Hollywood Reporter, Nick Nolte has joined the cast of The Mandalorian!
Nolte rose to fame and received plenty of critical acclaim for his starring role in the 1992 film The Prince of Tides, for which he won a Golden Globe award for best actor. Nolte also received praise for his roles in the films Affliction (1998) and Warrior (2011), as well as the TV series Graves (2016-2017), but he has a very extensive list of credits to his name.
He joins a cast that reportedly includes Pedro Pascal and Gina Carano, but any sort of official updates are hard to come by. The show is being helmed by Jon Favreau and features a number of talented directors (including Star Wars veteran Dave Filoni), and it will focus on a Mandalorian post-Endor on the far reaches of the New Republic. There’s a ton that can be done with this show and I’m super excited for it, and it will be interesting to find out what role Nolte will play.
The Mandalorian will arrive on Disney’s new streaming service, Disney+, presumably next year.
