The past two seasons of The Mandalorian have introduced comedians into the galaxy far, far away, with actors like Bill Burr and Amy Sedaris picking up some prominent roles. It seems that trend may continue as Parks and Recreation star Jim O’Heir has been rumored to be making an appearance in the upcoming third season.
In a recent appearance on Rob Lowe and Alan Yang’s podcast, Parks and Recollection, O’Heir was asked just what he was working on these days, to which he responded with a rather secretive answer.
“Oh shoot, I don’t know if im allowed to say where I am. I can say a state, I’m in a state, New Mexico, I don’t know”Jim O’Heir
The answer is fitting and feels like something that would come out O’Heir’s Parks and Rec character. In fitting with the Parks and Rec feel, Lowe’s response sounded an awful lot like his character, Chris Traeger.
“I will say, Jim, I know what you’re working on, and it rhymes with the latest instalment of Bar Wars.”Rob Lowe
Season 3 of The Mandalorian has been filming for quite some time now, with actor Carl Weathers confirming filming on the next season began in October. Production is reportedly set to wrap sometime this month, right before filming begins on the Mando spin-off, Ahsoka. No official release date for the third season has been announced just yet but is expected to hit Disney+ late this year, eyeing a 2022 holiday release, following a similar release pattern as previous ones.
