First I've heard of it. Edmure Tully, maybe?

Re: A Song of Ice and Fire/Game of Thrones Spoiler-Filled Discussion

About 180 copies of A Dance With Dragons shipped from the German Amazon site before the error was corrected. Spoilers have reportedly started to leak as a result. Although this is a spoiler thread for the series, please don't post any spoilers for the fifth book here until a reasonable length of time has passed after its official release date.

Personally I'm just going to avoid this thread (and all online ASOIAF discussion) from July 12th until I've finished the novel.

Westeros.org had a spoiler thread today which was filled with huge spoilers, but then the whole ADWD forum was hidden until the book actually comes out. There are spoilers on 4chan (how surprising) and probably everywhere where there's a slight possibility of ASOIAF discussion.

It will be very difficult to avoid spoilers in places where the moderation isn't that strict or Facebook/Twitter and such. Once the book really comes out, I think it'll be better to open a thread dedicated solely to ADWD and don't post any spoilers here or even hints at spoilers.

Aeron Damphair is easily my favourite minor character in ASOIAF (I loved the chapters from his perspective in A Feast of Crows) so I am hoping they'll do him justice this season.

I'm not that familiar with Eccleston but I have a vague feeling he's some kind of 'name'-ish actor, though, and as such I'd suspect a bigger role like Stannis... but honestly who knows. Balon Greyjoy?

I just think he'd be great at showing Damphair's fervor for his faith...

He was the ninth Doctor, for one season.
He'll be a perfect Stannis. It is known.

Re: A Song of Ice and Fire/Game of Thrones Spoiler-Filled Discussion

I like him for Stannis.

I became a Stannis fan when he was the only king to answer the call of the Night's Watch. He can be a bastard, but not maliciously so. The bit about him realizing that being a King meant having duties in addition to just whining about "rights" was a great realization that showed an admirable quality underneath the iron personality that's indulging in Melisandre's magic.

I suppose, but I have to admit I've really fallen in love with the idea of him as Stannis. I admit, though, that his Northern accent would work better for a Greyjoy, but then Mark Addy's broad Yorkshire accent kind of negates that already.

I'm also a fan of Stannis, myself. Stone Cold Sisko said it well in the post above this one, but he certainly seems to be the only person on Westros who understands what being king actually means. I suspect Robb did as well, but of course, he never really go the chance to prove it (insert standard fist shake at George R. R. Martin here).

This is why I like Stannis too. He's probably the only person in Westeros right now who can make a good king. I hope he will be on the winning side.

Either that or we could start a new thread for casting news and then people could filter back into this thread when they've read the new book.

That is what the WiC suggests.
