The Mandalorian cemented itself as one of the strongest Star Wars series in history, with its debut season in 2019, leading to Grogu (AKA “Baby Yoda”) and Din Djarin (Pedro Pascal) rightfully stealing the show in The Book of Boba Fett.

The new Star Wars story of Cara Dune (Gina Carano), Bo-Katan Kryze (Katee Sackhoff)Koska Reeves (Sasha Banks), Fennec Shand (Ming-Na Wen), Mos Pelgo Marshal Cobb Vanth (Timothy Olyphant), and Moff Gideon (Giancarlo Esposito) is coming to a close with season three of The Mandalorian. Still, Pedro Pascal wants a Hollywood legend to join the Star Wars universe before it’s too late.

Following the tumultuous firing of actress Gina Carano as Marshal Cara Dune from season three of The Mandalorian, a big hole is yet to be filled by another actor.

Pedro Pascal has the perfect actor in mind:

“I think [Nicolas Cage] would be a great Mandalorian. I think that he’s so physical, that he cuts such a great silhouette, he would figure out very artistic ways to execute the role.”

Considering that Danny Trejo recently cameoed in The Book of Boba Fett, it’s clear that Hollywood big names can pop up through Star Wars as they please.

Even if Nicolas Cage were to appear in a minor role, the galaxy far, far away would be perfect for this larger-than-life actor.
