Re: Game of Thrones, HBO series

Ooooooh. He's definitely got the look. I only saw him as the Doctor, though, so my mental image of him is always whimsical, not iron-grim.

I did wonder (with the offing of Sean Bean's Ned and Mark Addy's Robert) if they'd get another big name to play Stannis.

Re: Game of Thrones, HBO series

I can really see him as the humorless Stannis. I wonder who they're getting to play Melisandre?

Tricia Heffer from BSG is rumored. A bit of hair dye and she would be great.

Re: Game of Thrones, HBO series

lol no, as Mellisandre. Could be fan conjecture though.

Ecclestone would nail Stannis, emotionless but driven by a deep inner sense of righteousness. He played a great John Lennon recently, and has also played Jesus and the evil arms dealer Destro in GI Joe.

The man has range.

James Purfroy and Gerard Butler are also mentioned, I could see other roles for the two of them down the line.

Also so excited about book 5. I've actually booked a day off work to pick it up and read it ...

Re: Game of Thrones, HBO series

Not emotionless but sort of emotionally strangled, I think. I reread the books this past month and loved how Renly eating a peach sort of became an obsession for Stannis...

I've ordered the book and I'm hoping it comes the day after it's released (when I'll be at home) as opposed to when it's likely to come (when I'm gone for the weekend). But my housemates will enjoy it if I'm gone.

Brienne has been cast, she seems way too pretty ...

Re: Game of Thrones, HBO series

Seems -- but I bet the actor who plays the Hound isn't actually horribly burned on the face.

And Martin praises her pretty highly in that link.

Re: Game of Thrones, HBO series

Yeah, I'm thinking that they'll go the ol' false nose route with this actress. Or something.

She is also tall and has beautiful eyes. I'll stop now.
