Yeah, me and him totally have loads in common.

Your adherence to stereotypes, quite frankly, shows the same mindset as George Zimmerman - black person = likely criminal - which is quite saddening. Indeed, to use a case where an unarmed black child was shot dead by an armed half-white/half Hispanic man with a criminal record, as an example of black people being violent, is shockingly offensive.
I don't really get why the case was bought up in this thread in the first place. I've made my opinion of the reaction very clear, and don't wish to give those people any more attention, so it's best we just get back to discussing great fantasy literature and its TV adaptation.

I can see him as maybe a Wildling, perhaps the Magnarr of Thenn but I still think that the writers have sort of merged that character with Thormund Giantsbane to form the television version of Thormund. Not sure who else I can see him playing.
He'd be a good Mace Tyrell, he's good at acting pompous.
