The Star Wars television show The Acolyte continues to add to its cast. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Charlie Barnett, who starred in Netflix’s Russian Doll, is set to join the show. However, Barnett has yet to close a deal and no official announcements have been made.
If Barnett were to close a deal, he would work with Russian Doll co-creator Leslye Headland again, as she is the showrunner, writer and director of The Acolyte.
The rest of the cast of The Acolyte includes Amandla Stenberg, Jodie Turner-Smith, Lee Jung-jae and Manny Jacinto.
The report didn’t say anything about who might play Barnett, but his sources said he will have a supporting role rather than a leading role. The show is set 100 years before the events of Episode 1: The Phantom Menace, but no further plot details are available.
The Acolyte is one of many Star Wars TV shows in the works. Next up is Andor, which premieres on September 21 and will be followed by The Mandalorian season 3 in 2023. Looking ahead, Spider-Man director Jon Watts is directing a new Star Wars show with Jude. Law called Skeleton Crew, while an Ahsoka show with Rosario Dawson is also in the works.
