On Game of Thrones, he tried to bring down The Mountain.

Pedro Pascal is in talks to play the lead role in Disney+'s The Mandalorian TV series, according to Variety. The Mandalorian will focus on a lone bounty hunter that is keeping out of the reach of the New Republic that was set up after the events in Return of the Jedi. Thor: Ragnarok director Taika Waititi, Bryce Dallas Howard, Dope's Rick Famuyiwa, and Deborah Chow (Jessica Jones) will also direct episodes. It has also been announced that Disney is now developing multiple limited series featuring characters from the Marvel Cinematic Universe for their upcoming streaming service. Now, insiders tell Variety that he has been offered the role and negotiations are underway.

Pascal is no stranger to the small screen, with star-making roles as Prince Oberyn in "Game of Thrones" and Javier Pena in "Narcos".

The series is one of several already unveiled original shows set to debut on Disney's Netflix rival next year, which will make the service worth a try.

Goldman Sachs shares hit as 1MDB fallout continues
The bank arranged three bond deals in 2012 and 2013 to fund 1MDB, raising $6.5 billion to supposedly attract foreign investment. Leissner has said Goldman's culture of secrecy led him to hide wrongdoing from the company's compliance staff.

Was there someone else under the helmet in the photo Lucasfilm revealed? Now, we may know what The Mandalorian looks like under his mask. Karen Gilchrist will serve as co-executive producer.

This isn't the only project Star Wars fans are looking forward to, thanks to the recent news that another series would head into production next year focusing on Rogue One: A Star Wars Story's Cassian Andor would be the focal point of his own series.

Update: Entertainment Weekly reports filming was ongoing without a lead actor, which explains the timing mentioned above, and that he is indeed the title character.
