Timothy Olyphant has reportedly been cast in The Mandalorian’s second season, which premieres this October on Disney+.
Per The Hollywood Reporter, it’s unclear if Olyphant will play “a new character or a returning favorite in a new guise.” The veteran actor is probably best known for his roles in HBO’s Deadwood as Sheriff Seth Bullock, and as US Marshal Raylan GIvens in FX’s Justified.
Season 2 of Mando has already wrapped filming and is not expected to be delayed. You can check out Olyphant alongside the late Luke Perry in this deleted scene from Quentin Tarantino’s Once Upon a Time in Hollywood in the video below:
Olyphant will join a growing list of Season 2 newcomers including Katee Sackhoff as Bo Katan, Temuera Morrison as Boba Fett, and Rosario Dawson as fan-favorite Ahsoka Tano. Behind the camera, directors Robert Rodriguez (From Dusk Till Dawn) and Peyton Reed (Ant-Man) have both confirmed they will be directing episodes in Season 2.
