Werner Herzog is best known for his director work, but he\u2019s recently gotten into a few acting roles in shows like Rick and Morty and Parks and Recreation. Werzog had actually landed a role in Jon Favreau\u2019s upcoming Star Wars: The Mandalorian, and he reveals that he\u2019s actually playing a villain.\r\n\r\nTalking to Indiewire, Herzog explains:\r\n\r\nNow this is not a secret anymore, a small part, real small part, in \u201cThe Mandalorian\u201d, the Star Wars sequel or whatever you call it. I like to do it because I know I\u2019m good on screen, but only if I have to play a real villain.\r\n\r\nhttps:\/\/www.youtube.com\/watch?v=pvU8ZqgwXLQ\r\n\r\nWe don\u2019t really have any clues on who Herzog is playing, but I think it would be a good guess that his very distinct voice would be used. I mean, Herzog also has the looks of a character actor, but if he says the role is small, they could very well just have used his voice. Nick Nolte is also in the series, and it\u2019s been revealed that he\u2019s playing an ugnaught (those pig aliens that fix things in Cloud City).\r\n\r\nThen again, I could very well imagine Herzog playing an Imperial officer. Though the Emperor may have been defeated already in this timeline, remnants of the Empire still remain. Some set photos have even given us glimpses of classic stormtroopers plus deathtroopers from Rogue One. \r\n\r\nFor now, everyone is expecting the first trailer for the show to drop during the Mandalorian panel at Star Wars Celebration. Let\u2019s hope everything turns out fine for Lucasfilm\u2019s first live-action series.\r\n\r\nNo release date has been set for The Mandalorian, but the show is expected to debut later this year.
