Entertainment Weekly writes that he’s been confirmed to play
the Inquisitor, the villain charged with tracking down and killing the remaining Jedi after the Clone Wars.
Pablo Hidalgo from Lucasfilm Story Group said,
He’s cold, he’s analytical, he doesn’t get angry. We all took care to make sure our villains have real presence, and our heroes just can’t walk all over him. This isn’t like cartoons I grew up with in the ’80s where you’d have the villain lose every week, and yet every week we’d have to believe he’s some sort of threat. When the Inquisitor shows up, it means something significant, and it’s a definite challenge for our heroes.
Check out the first look at the Inquisitor in the video below:
