Yeah but considering he is more than happy to yield you'd think that a pragmatic leader would be willing to take the win there. It's not a hard thing to rationalise and comes across as out of character considering how down she was on Din's own moral code. It might set the stage for some good introspection 'what is an important moral principle and what is dumb tradition' style character arc for the next season though.

To put it in real world terms, it's like a Catholic saying it is silly for a woman to wear a Burka while not at all seeing the problem with saying birth control is immoral.

Imagine having a plum role earning Disney money with a likely spinoff centered on you and throwing it all away just so you can POST.

YUP.

Though people are trying to get The 100's Marie Avgeropolous to replace her. And though she's got her own baggage, I'd back that.

Tuned in, immediately get to watch cringey Ubisoft talking head offering her deepest sympathies to the families impacted by the Orlando shooting while flanked by a man in a giraffe suit and some sort of "horrifically garish neon costumes through the ages" exhibit or something.  We need to stop this fucking planet right now and sort some shit out. -Kail

Not sure there is any need for a direct replacement.

I assume they want to do more Mandalore stuff next year and if he doesn't return to the Carl Weathers planet they don't really need her.

Gina Carano got fired for tweeting, basically, that cancel culture and vilification of Trump supporters was directly analagous to the dehumanisation of Jews in Nazi Germany prior to imprisonment and the Holocaust.

It's Gina Carano being a racist douchenozzle and a huge "Republicans are victims of harrasment" mentality. Fuck her.

Ah, that sucks. Loved her in that role, but fuck that noise.

Also, not a bad idea to round up these terrorist sympathizers and put them in a camp, though.

What happened, from what I've read, was that back in November she tweeted a bunch of conspiracy theories about COVID-19 and mail-in ballot election fraud which prompted Disney to cancel an announcement of her starring in her own Mandalorian-spinoff show. Presumably at this point she was not under contract with Disney for anything, though possibly they may have still been negotiating a contract for her to reappear in The Mandalorian. Then she tweeted her recent stuff and Disney / Lucasfilm was so appalled that they felt it necessary to clarify she was no longer employeed by them.

My guess is that if you can't shut your fucking trap on Twitter (I mean, most of it was dumb retweeting of shitty right-wing meme garbage) while you're making some serious bucks and potentially becoming a fan favorite, you're probably an asshole on set too. Pablo Pascal's sister is trans and he's been very loving and supportive about it, which made Carano back down from one of her dumb retweets earlier. I'm sure he and other actors they've had on the show have really limited tolerance for being yelled at by a compulsive MAGA.

But it's also about the difference between post-Jan.6th and before--corporate America generally is just not fucking around about cutting ties to anything or anybody that was blathering on about election fraud etc etc. now, and that will likely be even more the case after the Senate trial.

A scene in episode three of next season of The Mandalorian:

BO-KATAN: Well, maybe call some of your friends to help, like that Cara Dune person.

DIN DJARIN: She got stabbed to death by a Gungan prostitute in some dive bar on Canto Bight a couple of months ago.

BO-KATAN: Oh well. How about Luke Skywalker?

Well, the exit of Alex Kamal in the Expanse was quite beautifully done,  but they won't have already filmed material in this case. Maybe they should have a "This is your exit scene if you turn out to be a serial rapist of insane terrorist supporter" filmed for every actor in the future. You never know what crazy shits they turn out to be.

In this case, maybe they should recast her with Daniel Harnsberger and say that the character of Cara Dune is trans and is now known as Car Dune.

Don Cheadle. No one mentions the change in appearance and in a quiet moment, he turns to the camera and says, "Yeah, so what?" and no one ever says anything again.

Lucy Lawless seems to be a fan favorite replacement and I could get behind it easily. Also, she is super progressive.

Btw, you don't need to worry about Gina's future. She made an announcement that she gets to start in and produce her own movie which has been a dream of hers! Ben Shapiro is making it! So getting fired by Disney was the best thing that ever happened to her!

If Shapiro's screen writing is anything like his novel writing we are in a for bargain bin version of a budget Tom Clancy done by Hallmark level movie (Yes that's right, two levels ripped off from a mediocre source).

I like this idea.  When ever any new actor is hired onto a Star Wars series/film, the first thing they do is film a scene of them being eaten by a Sarlacc.  Then just casually remind them they have that ready to go every now and again.

No need. They could easily do it after the fact with a Fake Shemp.

I'm sure the writing will be crisp with an unusually dry wit.  why so serious?

If you want to laugh, cry, and cringe at the same time, Behind the Bastards has episodes where they read his book and dunk on it. It is so bad. Tom Clancy + Hallmark is a good description, but keep in mind it's scrambled together with Ben Shapiro's insecurity and brain rot.

I saw a Youtube video by this guy who supposedly analyzes how people use language and such in conversations (spoiler: He's trying to sell his books on getting girls) but one of his videos was something like "How Ben Shapiro wins his debates." I never laughed so hard in my life.
