Aliens and Terminator actor Michael Biehn has been cast in the second season of Disney+ Star Wars series The Mandalorian.
The details on his exact role are being kept under wraps, although Making Star Wars is reporting that “Biehn is playing a bounty hunter from The Mando’s past.”
Biehn had a run of some pretty big movies in the late ’80s thanks to James Cameron films The Terminator, Aliens and The Abyss. His other credits include Tombstone, Navy Seals and The Rock. Although he’s worked consistently, the actor hasn’t had a high-profile project like this in quite a while – Robert Rodriguez’s 2007 film Planet Terror is arguably Biehn’s last “big” movie.
The Mandalorian season 2, which will introduce Rosario Dawson as the screen’s first live-action Ahsoka Tano (the character previously seen in CG-animated shows Star Wars: The Clone Wars and Star Wars: Rebels) and will reportedly bring back Bill Burr as Mayfeld, will be hitting Disney+ this coming October.
