I can see him playing bard, too. And he has that look to him that would lend itself very well to the scene where Jon first meets him, and doesn't realize who he is.

It's weird, I never picture any actor's face when I read the descriptions of characters but the first and only time it's happened in ASOIAF is when Black Walder Frey was described... my mental image of him has since been Richard Armitage and I can't shake it off. Unfortunately I don't think the role will ever be big enough for Mr Armitage.

Realy, I never heard of this guy. I know now hes playing Thorin Oakenshield, wich is a great part but still only one part in one movie, its not exatly a benchmark for success. Considering the kind of following and press coverage TV shows get this days i would not be suprised to see Hugo Weaving in GoT. So if the sceduele for the Hobit alows it Mr Armitage will say "Thank you. Where do I sign? and Who do I have to blow?"

You can also see Armitage in this summer's "Captain America" though in a relatively small role
He is easily currently my favorite British actor (at least among those who don't appear often in American film or television-- he isn't a Gary Oldman, that's for sure!).
Check out Richard Armitage at imdb.com!

1) Sean Bean being cast as Ned Stark (the first role I pictured RA in)
2) Jerome Flynn being cast as Bronn (the other role I saw him as)
3) Armitage being cast as Thorin (which will take up his next two years or so)
I don't know if there will be any roles sufficiently large enough (nor as good a fit) that would be making an appearance starting in season 3 or 4 to bring him unto the show.

If James Purefoy can sing, I think he would be great.

Haha I would love that but he would cost a lot to persuade I'd imagine. I can just imagine Russell riding into the battle against Stannis' army now

Michael Fassbender from the Movie "Centurion" where he goes ranging beyond Hadrian's Wall
he's played characters before who cast aside one ideology for another (Magneto)
as well as characters that were required to be deceptive and charming (Inglorious Bastards)

Urgh, yuck, I think you are meant to like Mance, not think he's slimy!

Who I have to kill for that? He would be perfect
