Cinelinx has dropped a new casting rumor that Star Wars fans will be sure to want to hear. Apparently, yet another new male actor has been tapped to play the live-action version of Ezra Bridger, and his name is Eman Esfandi.

Esfandi has recently starred in King Richard and The Inspection. This casting has not been confirmed by Lucasfilm.

You can check out a short video on the update below.

Nick and I will talk more about this casting rumor on next week’s episode of the SWTS, so don’t forget to tune into the Star Wars Time Show on a weekly basis via our podcast platforms or via YouTube if you prefer the livestream angle.
