Gael Garcia Bernal would be down for a role in Diego Luna’s Star Wars series Andor. 

In 2001, actors Gael Garcia Bernal and Diego Luna starred together in Alfonso Cuaron’s Y tu mamá también. The acclaimed film also starred Maribel Verdú, who is set to play Barry Allen’s mother in the upcoming film The Flash. The film received an Academy Award nomination for Best Original Screenplay and helped launch Diego Luna’s acting career.

In a recent interview, Gael Garcia Bernal was promoting his new film Old, directed by M. Night Shyamalan. While speaking with The Independent, he mentioned that he would be interested in reuniting with his Y tu mamá también co-star Diego Luna on the upcoming Star Wars series Andor:

“If Cassian Andor ever needs to find his lost brother or something, then maybe they can call me. Or his antagonist. That would be cool actually! In a galaxy far away! I mean, I am curious. If something comes along that is interesting like that… I would consider it, I guess.”
