    Pedro Pascal, known for his roles in Game of Thrones and Narcos, has been offered the lead role in Lucasfilm's first live action Star Wars series The Mandalorian.







    According to Variety, Pascal has been offered the role and 'negotiations are underway.' So while this doesn't sound like it is official yet, unless something crazy happens, it appears they have found their lead actor for the upcoming series.

    The Mandalorian, written and produced by Jon Favreau, is currently filming in California. This brings up the obvious question of how can they be filming if their lead is still in negotiations? It's possible the filming currently happening is exterior shots, scenery, as well as second until material. We should keep in mind this show will have roughly 10 hours of in-show material versus a typical two hour Star Wars film. There is a lot to be shot.



    It should be noted that Pedro Pascal is also a part of the cast for Wonder Woman 1984, which is currently filming. So its possible Lucasfilm found their actor, and are working production schedules around when he will become available to shoot the main contextual portions of the show.



    The series is expected to make its debut on the Disney streaming service Disney+ in 2019, paving the way for future Star Wars live action episodic series like the recently announced Rogue One prequel series centering around Cassian Andor.



    Assuming Pascal's signing becomes official, we can expect more of the cast list to follow soon after, and as always we will keep you posted as more information surfaces.



    UPDATE: Moments ago Entertainment Weekly's Anthony Breznican reported that sources have confirmed that Pedro Pascal will indeed play the lead role in The Mandalorian, the upcoming live action Star Wars series for the Disney+ streaming service.
    Breznican adds the series has been in production without their lead actor in place.
    Well there you have it folks, as Obi-Wan Kenobi once said, 'the negotiations were short' (from our point of view).

    Yep...I'll take it, as he did well on GoT. Good choice.

    How can negotiations be "underway" if they've been shooting this since a while now? I assume the news must be delayed.

    Regarding the update:
    Sounds weird to me. I would imagine the lead actor is one of the first things you try to lock when working on such a massive project. But well... If it worked for them this way, then I guess it's fine.

    It could be just that, a delayed announcement. They could have a stunt double standing in for certain scenes. They could be filming other stuff that does not involve his character. With an entire season to shoot that shouldn't be too difficult. Either way I'm stoked for this series now.
