NCIS has had a lot of memorable guest stars over the years, and The Mandalorian specializes in its new characters each week.
For a new episode of The Mandalorian (Guns for Hire), many fresh faces were helping to further the story.
Pedro Pascal (The Mandalorian) and Katee Sackhoff (Bo-Katan Kryze) had a lot of help with this new one.
Journeying to a new planet where droids were helping a civilization stay alive, the duo met married couple Captain Bombardier and The Duchess.
That couple was played by Jack Black and Lizzo, who seemed to be having a lot of fun with their guest spots on the show.
It was the security officer for the planet that caused many Star Wars fans to exclaim with glee.
Christopher Lloyd guest stars on The Mandalorian
In the role of Commissioner Helgait, the head of security for this new planet, actor Christopher Lloyd made his first appearance. It was a fun venture into a new science fiction world for a star of the Back to the Future series of films.
But NCIS fans remember Lloyd from a poignant episode of their show from a few years ago.
Season 17, Episode 20 of NCIS featured Lloyd as Joseph Smith. The episode was called The Arizona, and it was focused on the ship that sunk at Pearl Harbor. It’s one of those episodes that NCIS fans will watch again and again, with a strong guest start and story that keeps viewers glued to the TV.
For NCIS fans who want to go back and watch that older episode, it is available for streaming on Paramount+. And this new episode of The Mandalorian can be streamed on Disney+.
