If we talk about Peter Pascal It must be taken into account that currently it is one of the most sought after actors on the planet, but this was always like this. The established actor has been involved in many pilot episodes of different television series that ultimately never came to fruition. Pedro Pascal’s career was catapulted when he landed a prominent role as Oberyn Martell in the successful series Game of Thrones, but before that he would work on a pilot that was never released: The Sixth Gun. Based on the comic of the same name created by Cullen Bunn y Brian Hurtt, the series had a star-studded cast. Beyond that, it should be noted that there is a fun connection between the casting of The Sixth Gun y the triumphant Disney+ series The Mandalorian.

The Sixth Gun tells us the story of six mythical weapons that had a supernatural origin, each of which grants its possessor incredible abilities. The Sixth Weapon is the key to controlling them all, and if they could be completely reunited they could be enough to trigger the apocalypse. The Bunn and Hurtt comic had been a bestseller and the number of comic adaptations had grown considerably at that time. Arrow had already become a success in The CWy Agents of SHIELD of Marvel It was in full swing during that time. The Walking Deadwhich debuted in 2010, would also give good numbers to AMC. However, NBCthe one in charge of producing The Sixth Gunultimately never finished its development.
While it may seem strange at present, Pascal wasn’t even the protagonist of The Sixth Gun. In the first chapter, Pascal was part of the Pinkerton detective duo, Special Agent Ortega. Meanwhile, his partner is Special Agent Mercer, played by Aldis Hodge. In history, the powerful Missy Hume, played by Elena Satine, hires Ortega and Mercer to track down a character named Montcrief. Montcrief is the person who possesses the mythical Sixth Weapon, which once belonged to the husband of Missythe hated General Oliander Hume.
The series had a good starting point and a big-name cast that was about to emerge. While is true that The Sixth Gun perhaps it did not turn out to be the success story that Pascal wanted even though it seemed like a very solid project, the actor discovered that his path did not end there since he was destined for enormous projects. About a year after NBC buried The Sixth Gun, Peter Pascal made his debut in Game of Thrones as Oberyn Martell before his career took off even further with his starring role in Netflix’s Narcos. In addition to participating in series, Pedro Pascal has collaborated in important films such as Kingsman, The Equalizer 2 o Wonder Woman 1984.
Although Peter Pascal He did not get to share any scene with the general Humeinterpreted by W. Earl Brown Brown, both actors would end up coinciding in The Mandalorian. In the premiere episode of the second season of The Mandalorian. Brown makes his debut in the Star Wars universe in the series as Taanti, the Freetown waiter, whom Din Djarin encounters while searching for the Mariscal Cobb Vanth. It’s kind of funny to see how a few years after working at a failed pilot that never took off The two actors eventually appeared on screen together in a series based on Star Wars.
