The former ‘Graves’ actor is joining Pedro Pascal and Gina Carano on the new ‘Star Wars’ TV series penned and executive produced by Jon Favreau.
Hollywood veteran Nick Nolte is stepping into the “Star Wars” universe for upcoming TV series “The Mandalorian”.
Filmmaker Jon Favreau is writing and executive producing the live-action show, and he recently cast “Kingsman: The Golden Circle” actor Pedro Pascal as the lead.
Now Nolte has been added in an undisclosed role, according to The Hollywood Reporter, joining a line up which also includes “Fast and Furious 6” actress Gina Carano.
Set in the time period between 1983’s “Star Wars: Episode VI – Return of the Jedi” and 2015’s “Star Wars: The Force Awakens”, “The Mandalorian” will follow the adventures of a lone gunfighter following the fall of the Empire and before the rise of the First Order.
The series will also feature a number of top directors – “Star Wars: The Clone Wars” writer Dave Filoni takes charge of the first episode, while “Thor: Ragnarok” filmmaker Taika Waititi, “Dope” director Rick Famuyiwa, and actress Bryce Dallas Howard will also be stepping behind the camera for season one.
“The Mandalorian” is set to air on Disney’s forthcoming streaming service, which is expected to launch next year (2019).
