The second season of The Mandalorian is shaping up to be a massive undertaking. Aside from bringing back Ming-Na Wen and obviously Pedro Pascal (along with Baby Yoda), Disney managed to tap Robert Rodriguez to direct some of the episodes, as well as a whole new roster of actors for new characters including Rosario Dawson for the fan-favorite Ahsoka Tano, Katee Sackhoff as Bo-Katan Kryze, and even Temuera Morrison as Boba Fett. Now, it turns out Hitman and Justified star Timothy Olyphant is also part of the cast, playing a character who surprisingly dons Boba Fett’s armor.

While nothing has been officially confirmed, there’s a very high chance that Olyphant is portraying the character of Cobb Vanth. A self-appointed sheriff of the Freetown settlement on Tatooine, Vanth had never a appeared in any of the Star Wars movies, but belong as part of the extended universe in the Aftermath novel series by Chuck Wendig. As described by those books, Vanth wears a set of Mandalorian armor which was salvaged by some Jawas from Jabba the Hutt’s sail barge wreckage. Though it never explicitly says the armor belonged to Boba Fett, the bounty hunter was notably thrown into the Sarlacc pit at that precise location, and he was the only one at that location wearing Mandalorian armor.

Of course, this is just a theory for now. Fans will have to tune in to The Mandalorian‘s second season when it hits Disney+ in October to find out who Olyphant’s character is and how he’ll play into the epic series.

Elsewhere in entertainment, the Snyder cut of Justice League is officially coming to HBO Max.
