This was posted on Nathan Fillion's Twitter account today. If you don't know who Nathan Fillion is. he's the guy who played Malcolm Reynolds in the fantastic space western TV series, Firefly. Here's a look at his IMDB page.
As a huge fan of Nathan Fillion, I'm delighted to hear that he wants a spot on Game Of Thrones. In my opinion, he would be a great addition to the show. He is more than capable of playing characters with multiple layers and dimensions to them, which are plentiful in ASOIAF. I'm not too worried about the accent thing, either. Fillion seems like he'd be invested enough to really nail down whatever accent is required of him.
Who do you think Fillion should play? The first character that came to mind for me was Jon Connington, but he won't be coming into the story for another few seasons (if we get that far). Maybe Mance Rayder?
Let this thread begin.
