Deadline is exclusively reporting that Manny Jacinto is the latest name to join the cast for the upcoming Star Wars/Disney+ series The Acolyte.
The Acolyte is described as a mystery-thriller, which will take viewers into a galaxy of shadowy secrets and emerging dark-side powers in the final days of the High Republic era. In the Star Wars universe, an acolyte can refer to individuals with force abilities who learn from a more experienced Sith Lord.
The report states that details of Manny Jacinto’s character is being kept under wraps. His credits include The Good Place and I Want You Back.
The series, which was announced back in December 2020, hails from Leslye Headland, who serves as writer, executive producer and showrunner. It’s believed that The Acolyte will commence production later in the year.
Manny Jacinto will join a cast that includes Amandla Stenberg, Jodie Turner-Smith and Lee Jung-jae.
