According to a new report by Variety, The Mandalorian has found its lead, and it is none other than Pedro Pascal. Variety notes that the deal has not yet been finalized, but the part has been offered to Pascal and negotiations have started.

Pascal's name had previously been rumored for the role, but sources say he was one of many actors being considered. The Mandalorian will be executive produced by Jon Favreau, Dave Filoni, Kathleen Kennedy, and Colin Wilson.

The Chilean-American actor famously played the role of Oberyn "The Viper" Martell on the fourth season of HBO's Game of Thrones. Karen Gilchrist will serve as co-executive producer. Following that, he has appeared in Kingsman: The Golden Circle and The Equalizer 2, and is now filming Wonder Woman 1984. He recently finished filming the Netflix action pic "Triple Frontier" as well as "Wonder Woman 1984".
