The cast keeps getting bigger for the highly-anticipated second season of The Mandalorian, and it sounds like you can add Jamie Lee Curtis (Knives Out, Halloween) to that list of talented actors attached to the series.
According to the reputable Star Wars site, Making Star Wars, he had seen Jamie Lee Curtis visit the set of The Mandalorian, and believes she could have a role in the series. The site has reached out for confirmation, but sadly, due to everything going on in the world at the moment, they haven’t received word. The site also states despite the set visit, her role in the series is in question and is a rumor for now.
Despite the sites rumor, Making Star Wars has a great track record when it comes to reporting on the series, just last week, their exclusive report that Terminator star Michael Biehn joined the series, and comedian Bill Burr’s character Mayfeld would be returning was backed up by the Hollywood trades. So, take Curtis’ involvement with a grain of salt but don’t be surprised if it turns out to be true.
Curtis would join a stacked cast that includes Pedro Pascal (Wonder Woman 1984) as The Mandalorian, Gina Carano (Deadpool) as Cara Dune, Carl Weathers (Happy Gilmore) as Greef Karga, Emily Swallow (Supernatural) as the Armorer, and Giancarlo Esposito (Jungle Book) as Moff Gideon. Newcomers to the series include Rosario Dawson (Daredevil) as fan favorite Jedi, Ahsoka Tano, WWE superstar Sasha Banks in an unknown role, and the aforementioned Biehn and Burr, and of course how could we forget the return of Baby Yoda aka “The Child.”
Directors on the series include Bryce Dallas Howard (Jurassic World: Dominion), Peyton Reed (Ant-Man and the Wasp), Taika Waititi (Jojo Rabbit), Robert Rodriguez (Spy Kids), Carl Weathers, Dave Filoni (The Clone Wars), and Jon Favreau (Iron Man, Jungle Book). Favreau will once again showrun and executive produce alongside Lucasfilm President Kathleen Kennedy.
The Mandalorian season two is expected to premiere on Disney+ sometime in October. You can catch up or rewatch season one on the streamer now.
