‘Squid Game’ Actor Lee Jung-Jae Joins Upcoming Star Wars Show
The Star Wars drought has almost ended. It has been more than two months since Obi-Wan Kenobi ended. But Star Wars, Andor is now on the horizon. The three-episode premiere of the show will air on Disney Plus starting on 21 September. And are just the beginning of the fun. Many Star Wars shows are on the horizon, including The Acolyte, which just cast a Squid Game Star.
Deadline reported that Lee Jung-Jae would play the role of the lead male character in The Colyte. Seong Gi-hun is the most well-known Squid Game actor. Although Jung-Jae’s role is not revealed, the Acolyte marks the actor’s debut American studio project.
Jung-Jae will join Jodie Turner Smith and Amandla Stenberg. The Acolyte is a mystery-thriller that explores the High Republic’s last days and the Dark Side’s emergence.
An acolyte in Star Wars is thought to be the apprentice of Sith Lords. The word acolyte generally means an assistant or follower. This makes sense as we know there is a strict hierarchy among force-sensitive people, from apprentices to younglings to lords. This series is definitely worth watching.
