Is Oberyn Martell the Boba Fett of ASOFAI?

Oberyn actually got a fair chunk of time and character development, before being given one of the most exciting duels I've ever read.

Boba Fett kinda just stood there and was killed by a blind guy.

GRRM has posted another of his casting clues:
The Wedding Guest

He's a father, he's a son. He's been a bishop, a cardinal, a prior, a friar, a vicar, a knight, a lord, a mayor, a director. There's one born every minute, but by any other name he'd smell as sweet.
Westeros suspects it means Roger Ashton-Griffiths as Mace Tyrell.

I just heard about Indira Varma being cast to play Ellaria Sand! Loved her in Rome! Season four is coming along very nicely!

So he's Darth Maul rather than Boba. Well, apart from the character development!

Gatiss said that he finished filming and it was a few days only. I think he's either one of the Greyjoys or Bloodraven, being presented in the last episode as a teaser for S5.

I think he looks really like Toby Jones. Coincidentally, they've both played Alfred Hitchcock onscreen

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

An excerpt from George R. R. Martin's "The Princess and the Queen", featured in the Dangerous Women anthology to be published this December, has been released. It's a faux-historical account of the Dance of the Dragons, the contest between Princess Rhaenyra and King Aegon II over the Targaryen royal succession that nearly destroyed the realm.

I will pick that book up when it hits the shelves. It sounds reminiscent of the battle between Stephen and Maude. (I am reading when Christ and His Saints Slept right now by Sharon Kay Penman. It is a good novel - part of a trilogy.)

I held off reading Dunk and Egg for awhile because they were spread out in several books. I decided to pick them up as a "present to me." I am glad I did. The middle one was the weakest in my opinion, but the short stories definitely added to my enjoyment of ASOIAF.

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

I finished A Dance with Dragons last night and now I am sad, I have to wait like the rest of everyone else for the next book. I know a lot of people complain about the pacing and the general slowness of the books. I don't know if I'm different but I really loved the minutia that infects the last three books. I especially love the juxtaposition between Daenery and Jon. Daenery does everything wrong, while Jon seams to be solidifying himself as Lord Commander. I also love the breaking down of Tyrion, to unmake the selfishness that has consumed Tyrion. So that one day he may truly serve and be the real Hand of a queen.

Except completely failing to understand his own men.

Jon was a very good leader, he just acted bafflingly aloof and seemed to alienate himself from his men for no reason. In his head, he justified his decisions very well. He just.. never bothered making his points to other people, leaving them confused as to what the fuck he was doing.
