    Well he wrote episode nine of this season so he's clearly quite a bit involved.

    He has no executive power though, he is mostly just along for the ride as much as they're willing to entertain his desire to be a part of the production. It is good for PR too, which helps them wanting to keep him in the credits.

    He (GRRM) is listed as an executive producer, but yes that is only in name only. HBO and David Benioff/D.B. Weiss have control over it and can do whatever they want.

    Ah, that'll probably be the one that starts Theon's storyline (if we don't see Robb letting him go earlier).

    Thanks a lot. Now I'm having flashbacks to Aeron Damphair's chapters in AFfC. The horror...

    They should have gotten Robbie Coltrane for Damphair, most pictures of him make him look like Hagrid anyways.

    And the lack of such stunt casting is exactly why the casting is as good as it is.

    Well, they've already cast three people from Harry Potter (even if one of them was more or less an extra) in GoT so far...

    Quite a few actors from Harry Potter are/were in Thrones...

    The actor who played Filch (David Bradley?) was Walder Frey.

    Natalia Tena (Tonks) is Osha.

    Julian Glover (Pycelle) was the voice of Aragog in The Chamber of Secrets.

    The actor who played Will (the guy who Ned beheads) played a Slytherin student in Prisoner of Azkaban. He hands out a lot with Draco in that one.

    Finally, Lady Stark herself Michelle Fairley had a blink-and-you-miss it cameo as Hermione's mother in the first Deathly Hallows movie.

    My younger brother finally started watching the show, and he blew through the whole season in a couple of days.

    Then somebody went and spoiled him on the red wedding. I was so happy that I could share this with him, and now I'm totally pissed that someone gave away the biggest and most shocking event in the whole series. Oh well. As he put it, he knew the end of Fight Club before he saw it, and still thought it was awesome.

    Look on the bright side. Now you can play "spot the various moments of foreshadowing" with him.

    Poor guy. That would suck to know that ahead of time. I knew a betrayel was going to happen, I just didn't expect it to be at the wedding.

    ^^Yikes, that would be a candidate for the old thread I made about "what's the worst you've ever been spoiled?" :vulcan:

    IGN has a preview online now for the upcoming free-to-play, browser-based, PVP-focused MMO, which will be set shortly after the death of Ned Stark.

    That sounds pretty awful actually. The books and show are so enthralling because of the story and the characters. MMOs are notoriously bad for both. A giant king of the hill match has little potential for greatness IMO.

    That's not going to turn into a million Arya's killing each other or anything.
