Charlie Barnett is in Talks to Join Star Wars series ‘The Acolyte’

A familiar face from the Russian Doll series is on the verge of joining the upcoming Star Wars series The Acolyte.

According to an exclusive report from The Hollywood Reporter, Charlie Barnett, perhaps best known for his work on the Russian Doll series on Netflix, is in final talks to join The Acolyte in what is believed to be a supporting role.

Assuming this becomes official, this would make for a reunion of sorts between Barnett and showrunner Leslye Headland, who also co-created Russian Doll.

With The Acolyte taking place in the final days of the High Republic, it will be most interesting to see what role Charlie Barnett ends up playing in the story.
