Rome... Punisher... he'll be in Ahsoka soon...

I wonder how they’ll handle it on the show? (Assuming his character survives season 1.)

Time for a quick re-write if necessary...

Also, Tina Turner.  She rocked, and was pretty sweet in Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome.

Ray Stevenson passing was a bit of a shock.  I really enjoyed him in ROME.  And he played the comic relief bit really well in the Thor movies.  I'm also wondering what becomes of his character in the Ahsoka series.

And today it's Tina Turner?!?!?!  Sad news.  I know she had been out of the public eye for some time.  But if there's anyone who's second act in life was triumphant, I think it's her.  She went through hell with Ike, and it was really good to see her shine on her own.

Not only Pee Wee Herman, he was also the original Captain Rex in the Star Tours ride.

Tom Wilkinson has died suddenly.  Such a great actor.

That’s really sad.

First Ray Stevenson, and now Carl Weathers. It's crazy that the Star Wars Mandoverse has now lost two major actors in less than a year. Neither of them are really roles that could be easily recast. The characters are both critical too, so they can't just abandon them. It will be really interesting to see how their deaths affect the trajectory of the Mandoverse.

I don’t mean this to sound insensitive and maybe this isn’t the place, but anyone can be recast and I don’t think Karga is such an integral character that they can’t simply leave behind and throw a line in there about how he’s run off to the outer rim because of a bounty on his head or what not.

I would agree, you can recast both roles.  I think people in general freak out too much about recasting these days.  Look at Marvel, they are being very cagey about recasting Kang.  There are rumors they are completely changing their whole slate of movies rather than recast.  They recast the Hulk with no problems.  They even had a show where a variant of Loki is a woman, so they can't do the same thing with Kang and state this variant looks different?

Some villain kills Greef Karga in an attack on Nevarro.  Mando and Grogu go on a revenge tour taking out the baddies.  Tie it to Book of Boba Fett season 1 and have the bad guys who were directing the Pykes.
