Robert Pattinson to play Warrant Officer Mandel in Waiting for the Barbarians

 image host

Waiting for the Barbarians is certainly keeping us on our toes with regard to Rob’s role – first he was Colonel Joll, then Lieutenant, but now, according to IMDbPro, Rob is playing Mandel.  The role of Lieutenant is being played by Joe Alwyn. No word on Johnny Depp as yet.

For those who have read the book (like me), you will recall that Warrant Officer Mandel is sent to replace Mark Rylance’s character, The Magistrate, and oversees him during his imprisonment.  Both Colonel Joll and Mandel are the villains from memory.  Bring on bad ass Mandel.  I’ve updated the Film Page with more information about Rob’s character.

UPDATED:

The Hollywood Reporter posted an article this evening exclusively confirming Mark Rylance’s involvement as The Magistrate in the film.  I thought we already had the confirmation, but it’s good to see he is playing the role and not Johnny Depp as some thought.
