Timothy Olyphant is known for playing gunslingers and cowboys, like Sheriff Seth Bullock in HBO's TV series and movie Deadwood.

No official word yet on if Olyphant will be playing a well-known Star Wars character or someone brand new. But considering Olyphant's talents for playing a gunslinger and cowboy in the TV shows Justified and Deadwood, it'd be great to see him saddle up next to the Mandalorian himself (played by Pedro Pascal) as a sidekick, or maybe even a new nemesis.

Disney and Lucasfilm didn't immediately respond to a request for comment.

Timothy Olyphant also played a deputy US marshal in the FX Networks TV series Justified.

Olyphant will be joining the cast with other newcomers to season 2 of The Mandalorian, including Terminator actor Michael Biehn, Luke Cage actor Rosario Dawson and Star Wars movie prequels actor Temuera Morrison.

New directors will be on hand for the next season as well, including Robert Rodriguez (Sin City) and Peyton Reed (Ant-Man and the Wasp). They'll be joining director Dave Filoni and show creator Jon Favreau. The next season of The Mandalorian debuts on Disney Plus in October.
