Dream cast or realistic choices?
Dream cast - David Oakes as Ramsay and James Purefoy as Mance. I don't care much about Vargo.
But judging from all the previous casting, I'm sure Nina Gold will find the best possible actors for those roles.

I think sometimes realistic can fall in line with Dream. I mean last year they signed a couple of well known television actors to Game of Thrones. I wouldn't mind a recognizable face as Mance

Mance is big enough role for someone recognizable, Ramsay probably too. Vargo - not sure.

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

So - into book two now...

How are they going to deal with the whole Rhaegar thing in the series I wonder?

In the books, he seems a quite important person for a dead guy. I assume that all of the remembering the POV characters are doing in the books must be leading somewhere.

Are they just going to up in season X, Y or Z have loads of exposition explaining his importance or just drop it?

But how can they drop it as the books hint at the true story of what went down in the rebellion being pivotal?

and if they do cast Rhaegar...I would like Tom Hiddleston

I see Dennis Pennis (well, Paul Kaye) is playing Thoros of Myr - serious, what the smegging fuck?

I imagine they'll start doing infodumps about Rhaegar when he becomes immediately relevant to the story, if the TV series lasts that long. Benioff and Weiss don't seem terribly interested in playing out gradual revelations and mysteries, so from their perspective there's no point layering in his history until just before he's revealed to be Jon's father (or whatever).

This year Dinklage has no chance against Aaron Paul or Giancarlo Esposito (I believe one of them will take it). Best drama will go to Mad Men or Breaking Bad. So, technical Emmys only, and hopefully casting.

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

I wouldn't say he has no chance (there could just as easily be vote-splitting; Paul has lost this category before, after all, even without another person from his own series being nominated). That category's hard to predict.

Not enough screen time to justify a lead actor.
