Great Scott! It would seem that everybody’s favorite Delorean-driving scientist is set to join the cast of The Mandalorian’s upcoming third season. That’s right, Christopher Lloyd – the award-winning actor behind the Back to the Future series, The Addams Family franchise, Star Trek III: The Search for Spock, and One Flew Over The Cuckoo’s Nest – has officially signed on to star alongside Pedro Pascal and Carl Weathers in the popular small screen Star Wars spin-off.
The intel comes by way of an exclusive report from The Hollywood Reporterthat revealed that “the Back to the Future actor is on the call sheet,” and that the TV show “is currently filming its third season in Southern California.”

Of course, fans may remember that Aliens and The Terminator star Michael Biehn made a really cool special guest appearance in Season 2 as the hired mercenary, Lang. Whether Lloyd will play a similar role in season 3 remains to be seen.
