Carl Weathers Joins The Mandalorian

Former “Rocky” and “Predator” star Carl Weathers is coming back to screens with a rumored role in the upcoming live-action “Star Wars” TV series “The Mandalorian.”

Making Star Wars announced the rumor, saying that Weathers will appear in the Disney+ streaming series in a supporting role though specifics of his part are unclear.

Said to take place after the fall of the Empire, writer-producer Jon Favreau is spearheading the new live-action series which follows the travails of a lone gunfighter in the outer reaches of the galaxy far from the authority of the New Republic.

Dave Filoni (“Star Wars: Rebels”), Taika Waititi (“Thor: Ragnarok”), Rick Famuyiwa (“Dope”), Deborah Chow (“Jessica Jones”) and Bryce Dallas Howard (“Solemates”) all helm episodes of the series currently in production.
