Alan Tudyk Confirms K-2S0 Will Not Appear in Season One of ‘Andor’
While talking with editor-in-chief Steve Weintraub for his new Syfy series Resident Alien, Tudyk let it slip that he isn’t a part of Andor, at least initially, but could return later.
“They’re shooting it right now, I’m not in it. But, if it stays on the air, stories keep getting told, I’ll end up in there,” Tudyk told us.
He also acknowledged that he has been brought out for all of the corporate dog-and-pony shows regardless of his actual involvement: “I’m all these announcements for the show, and I had suggested at D23 when we announced in the show, that it be called K2 Fast K2 Furious: The Cassian Andor Series and, um, that’s not happening, it’s called Andor!”
One of his only concerns, as he gets holder, is performing in the elaborate mo-cap suit. “I do know this: I have to be on stilts for it, because the character is 7’1″, and I’m not one of those guys that says, ‘somebody else do the motion capture, and I’ll voice it later’. I’ll have to do the motion capture, and I turn 50 in March,” Tudyk explained. “So I hope they get to it soon, because I’m not going to be on stilts in, like, five years. I’m not doing it!”
Still, he’s resolute that he will be on Andor at some point and that series creator (and Rogue One co-writer) Tony Gilroy has a plan for his character in mind, which is pretty exciting. “I’m going to be in the show. It’s just that the story that Tony [Gilroy] is telling doesn’t involve K-2SO until later on… I can’t be too specific, but I can definitely say that I’m not going to be in the first season.” So there you have it: K-2SO will return but not yet.
