VanityFair’s Anthony Breznican has revealed on Twitter that Nick Nolte will be lending his voice for the Ugnaunt character named Kuill in the live-action Star Wars series The Mandalorian.
I had originally thought that little dude was going to be voiced by Jon Favreau, it’s nice to see that is actually Nolte’s character instead.
You check out his tweet below.
#TheMandalorian’s dewback riding partner is Kuill, voiced by Nick Nolte, who looks 🚨remarkably similar🚨to the 48 Hours actor. (It’s the facial hair, I think.)
Kuill is an Ugnaut, a pig-like alien seen in The Empire Strikes Back, shredding droids on Cloud City.

Kuill is seemingly part of The Mandalorian’s crew as the marketing would suggest and might have a meaty role in the series if he survives.
The Mandalorian cast consists of Pedro Pascal (Wonder Woman 1984, Game of Thrones, Kingsman: The Golden Circle) as the titular Mandalorian, Gina Carano (Fast and Furious 6, Deadpool) as Cara Dune, Carl Weathers (Predator, Rocky, Happy Gilmore) as Greef Carga, Giancarlo Esposito (Do The Right Thing, Breaking Bad) as Moff Gideon, Taika Waititi (Jojo Rabbit, Thor: Ragnarok, The Suicide Squad) as IG-11, Werner Herzog (Jack Reacher), Bill Burr (Breaking Bad), Mark Boone Jr. (Batman Begins, Memento), Ming-Na Wen (Mulan, Agents of SHIELD) as Fennec Shand, Julia Jones (Westworld) as Omera, and Natalia Tena (Game of Thrones) as a Twi’lek bounty hunter.
HN Entertainment first reported that Disney/Lucasfilm greenlit a second season of The Mandalorian ahead of Star Wars Celebration 2019.
It was recently revealed that Jon Favreau and Carl Weathers would be directing episodes in season two.
They’re also making series focused on Diego Luna’s Cassian Andor and Ewan McGregor’s Obi-Wan Kenobi with both are set to begin production in 2020 (Kenobi in the summer).
The Mandalorian begins airing starting on November 12th on Disney+.
After the stories of Jango and Boba Fett, another warrior emerges in the Star Wars universe. “The Mandalorian” is set after the fall of the Empire and before the emergence of the First Order. We follow the travails of a lone gunfighter in the outer reaches of the galaxy far from the authority of the New Republic.
