Pally said that his friend and "Mandalorian" showrunner Jon Favreau offered the cameo role to him simply by telling him that he "needed somebody to do something special".

"I remember the first shot I made when I hit him", said Pally. So while I want you to hit it, I just want you to know that'. "Because I think I took a big swing. And the next three takes I missed, because I was so nervous".
