Following the news of Michael Biehn joining the cast of The Mandalorian season two, new details are now being reported on his role.
Thankfully, filming on The Mandalorian season two finished before the coronavirus outbreak started shutting down productions all around the world. Now, new casting additions to the Star Wars series are starting to surface. The biggest one was Rosario Dawson, who is set to play Ahsoka Tano. Another came from Making Star Wars earlier this week, who shared that Michael Biehn is in season two as well.
Making Star Wars is now reporting that Michael Biehn is playing a bounty hunter from Mando’s past who has a costume inspired by his Tombstone character Johhny Ringo. The report goes onto say that Michael Biehn’s character in The Mandalorian will say lines as a nod to his roles in The Terminator, Aliens, Tombstone, and Navy Seals. It also sounds like Dave Filoni directed the episode Michael Biehn will appear in.
