It's a shame Michael Clarke Duncan died last year. I think he would have been perfect for that role.

I thought he had. Maybe I'm thinking of Grey Worm?

Grey Worm has been cast.

The one on the left plays Daario and the guy on the right plays Grey Worm.





You could see Ian McElhenny in the background of some the the Dany shots/pictures this year sporting a nice white beard.

I will hunt around and see if I can find an image.

Here is one - He is in the background with the actress that plays Missendei (spelling). I found it on Winter is Coming.

New season 3 photos up at Winteriscoming.net.

I really like this one of Stannis.

Weird, I'm not sure if it's the composition of the show but Stannis looks so much older in that picture.

Hopefully, both the writing and acting of Stannis improve in S3. In the books, he's one of the most memorable and entertaining characters. In the second season, he's... completely forgettable.

Really? I LOVED him in the second season.

I liked him better than Jon Snow, anyways.

John Snow is too humourless. No wonder everyone stabbed him.

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

I really liked the actor as Stannis.

At first I was a little put off. I kept thinking that he was NOT Stannis, but his performance won me over.

I think he captured Stannis' humorless disposition while bringing the unintentionally hilarious Stannis to life. Some of the best guffaws I got from the books came from Stannis.

Even though the actors playing Jorah and Stannis don't match their characters descriptions, I see them now when I read the books.

For Jon, however, he is still a mental composition. The actor has yet to "stamp" the character for me.

I totally hope that Stannis does look older. In the books, I got the real sense that Renly's death combined with whatever Mel was doing was sucking the life out of Stannis. He became more skeletal to me as the books progressed.

Stannis knows he's sould his soul. He just hasn't admitted it to himself yet.

Looks like Best Buy is going to get two exclusive covers for season 2 like they did for the first season. Lannister and Greyjoy this time! Lannister is sweet and there is no way I'm NOT getting it since Tyrion is my favorite character.

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

I'm quite fond of Stannis' casting, too. I thought he worked well in season two but in general the casting has been excellent. The only character that hasn't been working for me is Jon Snow, a character I liked a lot more in the books.
