Rupert Friend to play popular Star Wars character in Obi-Wan Kenobi!?

“Homeland” actor may hunt Jedi’s in the Ewan McGregor starrer


Former “Homeland” actor Rupert Friend is rumoured to be playing iconic “Star Wars” rogue the Grand Inquisitor in the upcoming “Obi-Wan Kenobi”.

BespinBulletin says the actor, whose other credits include “Hitman : Agent 47” and “Pride & Prejudice”, would lend his mug to a character who reported to Darth Vader and hunted Jedi who had survived the Great Jedi Purge – like Kenobi.

“Obi-Wan Kenobi”, which sees Ewan McGregor don the beard and yield the saber again for the first time since the prequels, is tipped to premiere on Disney+ in May.
