I'm still holding out for a Mance Rayder recast.

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

A (relatively) big name like Hinds, who has a history with HBO and the people who make the show, is rather unlikely to be going anywhere. And I doubt a different actor would make a difference there.

Big fellow. Wonder what they'll do about the accent and/or age difference with Rory McCann?

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

I don't know about the accent, but I doubt the age difference will be a concern; he's going to have, what, one or two scenes, probably? And the longest of those will be in full plate armour.

IIRC, Gregor wasn't much of a talker. Should be okay.

Okay, if this guy is around Belfast, I'm guessing he's going to be easy for me to spot/stalk. I'm just afraid of him already...

Supposedly he is replacing the actor Ed Skrein as the sellsword Daario Naharis.
That would have been my serious guess. He has a similar look, though I rather liked what the previous dude had done with his few moments. He had the right swagger, even if he didn't have much material to work with. I could see Dany allowing herself to fall for him.

On the basis of his performance in Treme, I'd say the new guy is a better actor than the previous one. His character there was kind of an asshole but with redeeming features. He was a bit of a cliche, but he did his best to round it out.

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

The old guy seemed plenty suited to the role and I just generally abhor recasting. I hope they had a better reason than "oh, but this guy is better."

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

I'd rather have him in a full fourth season of Treme, but given HBO has basically pulled the plug on the show that was never going to happen, so I'm okay with him being Naharis (even if it's a bit of a demotion for him as it's a far more minor role than Sonny on Treme).

The Hugo Awards were given out tonight. Game of Thrones won in Best Dramatic Presentation, Short Form, with "Blackwater" beating out three episodes of Doctor Who, which had won the category in six of the previous seven years, and an episode of Fringe. George R. R. Martin and Rory McCann accepted the award.
