Pedro Pascal tried to convince Nicolas Cage to join the Star Wars universe

Pedro Pascal says he has had conversations with Nicolas Cage about the Oscar-winning actor joining the Star Wars universe in The Mandalorian.

In 2022, Pascal and Cage starred together in The Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent. It saw the latter play a fictionalised version of himself who eventually becomes friends with a thought-to-be drug kingpin, played by Pascal.

The movie received positive reviews, with particular praise reserved for the chemistry between the two lead actors. Naturally, fans are eager to see Pascal and Cage on-screen together again, and it might even happen in Star Wars!

“I already suggested . I already said he would make a great Mandalorian,” Pascal told Yahoo at Disney's D23 Expo when asked about Cage joining the Star Wars franchise.

“But would he wear a helmet or not?” replied the show’s executive producer Rick Famuyiwa.

“He’ll wear a helmet,” Pascal insisted.

“Absolutely… Or he could be one of the helmet-less.”

Obviously, the interaction had Pascal with his tongue firmly in his cheek, but we can still dream of Cage as a Mandalorian.

The Mandalorian returns

The Mandalorian will return for a third season in February of 2023, and it seems we will see much more Mandalorians themselves.

“There are a lot more Mandalorians, and with that many Mandalorians in the room, things are bound to go wrong,” says Katee Sackhoff, who will again play Bo-Katan Kryze.

“I think this season is different. … I do believe that this season is a little faster-paced. And that tonally, it’s like a moving train. You just gotta get on.”

 “It both expands upon the idea of Mandalorians and the culture of Mandalorians, but as the storytelling starts to evolve, we have characters that have been introduced in Mandalorian like Ahsoka that are now part of the bigger storytelling going on in Star Wars," explains Famuyima.

“We’re bringing together a lot of characters from so we got a lot to say in Star Wars and we’re gonna keep saying it.”
