‘The Mandalorian’: Nick Nolte Joins Cast of ‘Star Wars’ Show

Nick Nolte has joined the cast of “The Mandalorian,” Disney’s upcoming live-action “Star Wars” TV show from Jon Favreau, individuals with knowledge of the project tell TheWrap. Nolte is joining a cast which includes Pedro Pascal and Gina Carano. The series, which is set in the time period between “Return of the Jedi” and “The Force Awakens,” follows a Boba Fett-like character, described as “a lone gunfighter in the outer reaches of the galaxy far from the authority of the New Republic…” In “Star Wars” lore, Mandalorians made the iconic armor that bounty hunter Boba Fett and his “father” Jango Fett (he was technically an unaltered clone of Jango) wore in the films.
