Nick Offerman’s Possible Star Wars Debut

The Infinity Baby star’s performance has not solely impressed critics and fans but has also caught the attention of Star Wars writer Charles Soule, who responded to a fan cast on Twitter. After his marvelous performance on the HBO series, Offerman has been trending on the internet for a while enjoying fans’ applause, but in a particular post, a fan shared his wish to see Offerman enter the Star Wars Universe with the character named Porter Engle.

Porter Engle has not yet appeared in Star Wars Live action. Engle may be a side character who appears as a mere chef at the beginning of the comic line but the character enjoys a rich character history and background. Engle is surely one of the characters who possess a huge possibility to be exploited in the upcoming Star Wars movies, as the writer looks forward to continuing the decades-old storyline that fans hope to see once again on screen. Soule’s unexpected response on a fan casting has excited fans, who have raised their hopes high to see Nick Offerman making his debut in Star Wars’ upcoming projects.

Ignoring the evident physical similarities between Offerman and Engle, there is something that both of them share in common. Both the actor and the character are undermined with a lot of potential to leave a strong impression on fans. 

The Last of Us continues to release episodes on a weekly timeline, every Sunday. The first season of the series will comprise 9 episodes in total out of which 3 have been released so far. The fourth episode titled Please Hold My Hand will be released on February 5, 2023, on HBO Max.
