Who would you cast in some of the main roles?
I think I'd definitely have Peter Dinklage as Tyrion and Josh Holloway as Jaime. Who would you guys pick?

I agree with Holloway as Jaime. I was actually just thinking about that yesterday. But that might be because he kinda looks like the guy that actually plays Jaime

I had always thought Katee Sackhoff would be a good Brienne, but I do think Gwen Christie's nine foot tallness adds a lot to the role, so maybe someone taller... it's one thing you can't quite fake.

Who would make a good Ned? That's so important...

Edit: Taylor Kitsch as Rhaegar? What? I love him, but no way.

Jonny Depp as Bloodraven - but maybe there is still a chance? Has BR been cast yet? Think of a more twisted Edward Scissorhands and Barnabas Collins?
Tim Burton should also direct and design Bran's cave - in Black and White and Red - think Sweeney Todd.

I also like the Zachary Quinto as said above - as either LF or Renly.

Who could George Clooney play?

I am just imagining how cute he'd be with a blond wig. He always seems sad, so that is how I fancasted. Ha ha.

Al Pacino with a wig screaming his head off as the mad king. Ron Perlman as L.C. Mormont. Ben Foster as Rhaegar.

As an Englishman, I have to say I am puzzled why there aren't more American actors in the series. If it is important they have British accents, there is a growing number of US actors who can do very convincing Brit voices. Things have come a long way since Dick Van Dyke's memorable disaster in Mary Poppins. Gwyneth Paltrow for example, who would have been the definitive Cersei.

To be honest, when I read Margeary in the books I always picture Summer Glau.
