There’s some interesting Game of Thrones casting news coming from Winteriscoming. The word is that two important characters from Daenerys’ growing entourage have been cast.
First up is the role of Daario Naharis, the talented swordsman and mercenary captain of the Stormcrows. British musician and actor Ed Skrein (Pictured below) has landed the role. Daario is a smooth talking, swaggering sell-sword that loves attention and glory. He captures the attention of Daenerys and one can imagine how Jorah will feel about that.
The second is none other than the role of Grey Worm, captain of the Unsullied (Army of slave, eunuch soldiers raised from a young age and trained unquestioning obedience orders and rigid martial prowess. They are used as guards all over the Free Cities.). This role has been given to Jacob Anderson (pictured below). You may have seen Anderson in Adulthood, Chatroom, Episodes and Skins.
This NeredBastard is excited to see any Game of Thrones casting news simply because of the enjoyment of matching the actor casting to the character from the book. Both these casting choices make sense. What do you think about the choice of these two actors? Let us know what you think in the comments section below.
HBO’s Game of Thrones has it’s own version of “March Madness Bracket Fever” with the introduction of the following house videos. It’s time to gather your forces, form your battle lines, and choose sides.
Will your choice be one made because of honor, greed, simple survival, or perhaps love or lust? Perhaps you plan to straddle the game and play the Unuch or the run your own dangerous game as Littlefinger. It matters not, all will have to take sides as the game progresses.
Season two of the Game of Thrones start April first on HBO.
The powers that be over at Warming Glow commissioned a look at all the deaths in the first season of HBO’s Game of Thrones set to Guns and Roses “Knockin’ of Heaven’s Door.”
Every game has it’s winners and it’s losers. So here’s to the losers; those hacked up, slashed open, crushed down, choked out, ripped apart, brutally beheaded, undeaded fools that threw their hat into the ring of thrones, because as is often said by many a player involved in the Game of Thrones, “In the game of Thrones, You win or you die.” This NerdBastard has often thought that, “Horribly” should be added to that phrase.
Which death did you like best? Which sword stroke made you cringe? Whose head rolling made you tear up?
