    After seeing Rosario Dawson discuss how she fell into the role of Ahsoka in The Mandalorian seemingly by a fancasting twitter post, let's see if we can't make lightning strike twice.

    Pick a character from Rebels, TCW, any books, comics, etc. that you think could make an appearance in The Mandalorian and share your choice of actor for the role!

    Or, pick an actor you think is made for the show and create a character for them!


    Have some fun, there are no wrong answers here! ...unless you pick a character from a timeline that doesn't fit Mando... that might be a wrong answer. : D

    *********

    I will update this list with some of the heavy favorites to appear on the show as suggestions roll in:

    Grand Admiral Thrawn
    Sabine Wren
    Ezra Bridger

    Great idea!

    Thrawn: Michael Fassbender, he looks the part and is a great actor, which Thrawn deserves. I'd love to say Lars Mikkelsen - his voice is amazing but he just doesn't look right for live action Thrawn IMO.

    Sabine: Tiya Sircar - obviously she's got the voice but she also kinda looks the part and is a decent actor.

    Great idea indeed.
    I'm not sure if this EU character made it into legends or if he would even make any sense as a character in this show (timeline?) but I'll go so far as to say that if he did, I would like to see the insane dark jedi Master Joruus C'boath. I'm not sure at the moment who would would fit the role.

    Fassbender, his star has been sinking fast lately... I agree, he would be a good fit.

    Why not taking the actor who already plays him (Rebels)? Lars Mikkelsen.

    I already mentioned that...i don't think he looks like Thrawn. I'd love to be wrong though!

    If we talk looks than Pierce Brosnan actually looks like (canon) Thrawn

    But I prefer acting over looks.

    Agreed! That's why I chose Fassbender, I think he's got both aspects nailed down.

    Pierce was going to be my choice for Thrawn too! Still my favorite Bond.

    What did you guys think about Rahul Kohli trolling casting himself as playing Ezra Bridger? I actually like it.

    Pierce Brosnan is a great actor(and my favorite james bond). He does look almost identical to that art, so it's a double win!

    John Hamm would make a perfect Grand Admiral Thrawn, IMHO. Plus he's an excellent actor and that's, ya know, kind of important!

    John Hamm as Thrawn (a quicky). Brosnan is a good fit as well. Thrawn.jpg

    I think Indira Varma would make a pretty good Sabine, and she does already have plenty of chemistry with Pedro from their time together on GoT ....

    Or maybe Parminder Nagra ?

    I haven't seen her in anything (I don't think) but I love to see voice actors break through and play the corresponding live action roles! It's just so... serendipitous. :D

    I'd be really disappointed if it's not Tiya tbh.

    Same. Out of the 3 I just posted, I am having a hard time justifying anyone other than her!

    Gareth Lorca, they can cast Silvester Stallone to play an old and broken ex military who turns into a weapons smuggler.

    I don’t know if this fits this thread, and it’s far from an original casting, but Sebastian Stan as Luke Skywalker would be amazing!

    I also second seeing Tiya play Sabine in live-action!

    Only issue is he's too old to play someone in their early twenties. Ezra is like 17 at the end of Rebels, so 22 during the time of The Mandalorian.
    Same with Stan. He's almost 40, Luke isn't even 25.
