I'm sure there're recommendations for Stannis buried in year-old threads, but with season 2 looming, I figured we should start fresh.
Stannis Baratheon, Lord of Dragonstone and by the grace of the gods rightful heir to the Iron Throne of the Seven Kingdoms of Westeros, was broad of shoulder and sinewy of limb, with a tightness to his face and flesh that spoke of leather cured in the sun until it was as tough as steel. Hard was the word men used when they spoke of Stannis, and hard he was. Though not yet five-and-thirty, only a fringe of thin black hair remained on his head, circling behind his ears like a shadow of a crown. ... Stannis kept his own whiskers cropped tight and short. They lay like a blue-black shadow across his square jaw and bony hollows of his cheeks. His eyes were wide open wounds beneath his heavy brows, a blue as dark as the sea by night. His mouth would have given despair to even the drollest of fools; it was a mouth made for frowns and scowls and sharply worded commands, all thin pale lips and clenched muscles, a mouth that had forgotten how to smile and had never known how to laugh.
My pick is Andrew Howard
. The only thing I've really seen him in is the 2003 version of Lion in Winter. I love watching this mini series for the dialog, and Howard does a fantastic job as Richard (the Lionheart). And he's 5 years younger than Addy, so his age is perfect.
What are your recommendations for the Stannis casting queue?
