Star Wars fans are on the edge of their seats with each episode of The Book Of Boba Fett. Disney + has brought many characters from the Star Wars Universe back to light, including Black Krrsantan. So let’s discover why fans think Carey Jones plays the wookiee bounty hunter.
The Book Of Boba Fett reveals what happened in the five years following The Mandalorian season 2 as Fett and Fennec Shand set out on a mission to reclaim Hutt’s territory. Fett’s ex-colleague and well-known Star Wars wookie Black Krrsantan makes a cameo in episode 2 and fans are curious to know who the actor behind the mask is.
Episode 2 of The Book Of Boba Fett, entitled The Tribes Of Tatooine, focuses on the bounty hunter’s flashbacks to when he was with the Tusken Raiders, but one appearance we didn’t expect to see was Black Krrsantan.

Who is mystery actor Carey Jones
Carey Lamar Jones is an actor and make-up artist who portrayed Tracker Predator in 2010 film Predators.
Predators was Carey Jones’ first film role and from there it seems he got the bug for suit performing. Jones has also played River Ghost in Predators. On the same set, Carey worked as a double for Brian Steele where he played Berserker Predator and Falconer Predator in the movie. However, his only credited role from the production was as Tracker.
The River Ghost costume had to be altered to fit Carey Jones’ physique, which happened to be a lot more muscular than the previous draw ups so it took about half an hour to put on. This is a massive reduction from the whole hour it initially took when he tried out the suit. The other interesting thing about this suit was it had no eye holes so Jones performed practically blind.
The 6ft 7in actor is also known for his work on The Walking Dead (2010) and Alita: Battle Angel (2019). However, many of his credits are actually in the make-up and special effects department as opposed to being a suit performer. He has received four Emmy nominations as prosthetic designer on The Walking Dead and won one Emmy in 2012 as Special Makeup Effects Artist.

Why fans think Carey Jones plays Black Krrsantan in Boba Fett
Carey Jones’ name is stated on the credits of the latest episode of The Book Of Boba Fett but it doesn’t actually reveal who he plays.
Therefore fans are theorising the character Jones must have played in The Book Of Boba Fett is Black Krrsanatan. As a professional body suitor, Carey Jones seems to be just the fit for a role in a Star Wars series. Jones is used to wearing massive bodysuits from his previous roles, his height and muscular physique also fits the appearance of Krssantan. However, it is unconfirmed that Jones is the actor behind the wookiee bounty hunter.
Black Krssantan has made many appearances in Marvel’s Star Wars comics, but his live-action debut was in The Book Of Boba Fett. Black Krrsantan showed up when The Twins brought him out in hopes of intimidating Boba Fett.
This potentially sets up an exciting fight between Fett and Black Krrsantan or even Fennec Shand and the wookiee.
