As previously announced, 'The Mandalorian' will be led by 'Narcos' star Pedro Pascal. A number of big-name actors have since joined the series.

Last weekend, we learned that Nick Nolte will play an angry, gravelly bounty hunter that's connected to Boba Fett. 'Deadpool' star Gina Carano was also previously confirmed.

Now we have learned that Carl Weathers, Giancarlo Esposito and Werner Herzog are joining them.

Weathers is best-known as Apollo Creed of the 'Rocky' franchise while Espoito would be renowned for 'Breaking Bad' and 'Better Call Saul.' Herzog is a German filmmaker who has starred in such films as 'Jack Reacher.'

The official cast rundown for 'The Mandalorian' unveiled yesterday also included Omid Abtahi of 'American Gods' and Emily Swallow of 'Supernatural' fame.

Jon Favreau ('Iron Man', 'Elf', 'The Jungle Book') wrote and produced the series.
