STAR WARS: THE MANDALORIAN Adds Academy Award Nominee Nick Nolte In An Undisclosed Role

Jon Favreau's upcoming live-action Star Wars series The Mandalorian has added some more star power in the form of multi-time Academy Award nominee Nick Nolte (Hulk, Warrior, Cape Fear). More past the jump.

According to THR, Nick Nolte will join Pedro Pascal and Gina Carano in the first ever live-action Star Wars series, The Mandalorian. There are no details on who he'll be playing, but the report does reveal that not every character will be in each episode.

Nolte will be best known 'round these parts for his scenery chewing, but still underrated turn in Ang Lee's Hulk. He has also appeared in the likes of Cape Fear, The Thin Red Line, 48 Hours and Warrior, for which he earned his third Academy Award nomination.


After the stories of Jango and Boba Fett, another warrior emerges in the Star Wars universe. The Mandalorian is set after the fall of the Empire and before the emergence of the First Order. We follow the travails of a lone gunfighter in the outer reaches of the galaxy far from the authority of the New Republic.

Taika Waititi (Thor: Ragnarok), Dave Filoni (Star Wars: The Clone Wars, Star Wars Rebels), Deborah Chow (Jessica Jones), Rick Famuyiwa (Dope) and Bryce Dallas Howard (Solemates) will all helm installments of the series.

There's no release date for The Mandalorian just yet, but it is expected to premiere on Disney+ at some point next year.
