Werner Herzog was part of the official announcement for the cast of The Mandalorian. The production has now wrapped and he was speaking to Indiewire and made some small comments about his part in the show.
“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.”
I really dig this guy, no shortage of confidence, and it looks like he has no idea that this is a TV project and not a movie. Although he seems to think he has a really small part, so I wonder if that means he isn’t the main villain? Or perhaps it just means that he’s sheltered and unseen for many of the episodes.
Anyway, if there was ever any doubt Herzog is the villain.
