Micheal Biehn set for The Mandalorian Season 2 as Bill Burr returns

March 28th, 2020 by Marc Comments

Following on from the very exciting news that we’ll be seeing a live-action Ahsoka Tano in The Mandalorian Season 2, we have some more cool news about the show’s cast for its second season.

Alien and Terminator star Michael Biehn has been cast in season 2 as an aging bounty hunter tied to The Mandalorian’s past. This is pretty exciting as Biehn is one of FTN’s favourite action stars from the 80s and certainly plays grizzled better than most (check out our interview with him a few years back here).

Added to this, one of my favourite funny men, Bill Burr, will be returning as Imperial sharpshooter-turned-mercenary Mayfield – yes! Mayfield was a great character in season 1 and I think it goes without saying that he’s going to have to settle with the Mando in the second year.

Gina Carano and Carl Weathers are also returning as Cara Dune and Greef Karga.

See? It’s still perfectly possible to find something in Star Wars to be really excited for.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
