"I'm Cobb Vanth. Lawman and de facto mayor of what used to be Mos Pelgo."
The big announcement last week was that Timothy Olyphant, star of Deadwood and Justified, was making an appearance in Season Two of the hit Disney+ show Star Wars: The Mandalorian, well now it appears we know what role he’ll be playing.
Peter Sciretta over at Slashfilm has learned that Olypant filmed his Season Two scenes wearing the iconic Mandalorian armor that once belonged to Boba Fett, and that he would be playing a character by the name of Cobb Vanth.
“Our sources have confirmed to us that Olyphant filmed scenes wearing Boba Fett’s Mandalorian armor for the upcoming second season of The Mandalorian. That might sound confusing because earlier this month it was reported that Temuera Morrison, who originated the role of Jango Fett (Boba’s clone father), had been cast as Boba Fett. So what’s going on here?
If Morrison is playing the role of Boba Fett, then Timothy Olyphant is playing an enigmatic character named Cobb Vanth.”
