IndieWire has an interesting interview with Warner Herzog about some of his upcoming projects. In the interview Herzog decided to drop a very small but important detail about his role in the upcoming Disney+ show The Mandalorian.
“Now this is not a secret anymore, a small part, real small part, in The Mandalorian, the Star Wars sequel or whatever you call it. I like to [act] because I know I’m good on screen, but only if I have to play a real villain.”via IndieWire
Herzog seems to spill the beans that he will be playing a villain in the upcoming show. It is worth noting that he makes a point to say it is a small role but is still note worthy because it is the first actual information from cast that worked on the show.
If I had to guess Herzog will be a set up for a overall crime underworld. Something similar to what we saw in Solo. This would free Herzog up from having to be a regular on the show but can still appear once or twice a season as the “big bad”. We are sure to get more information about everyone’s role in the show next month at Celebration so we do not have long to speculate.
