  1. Harald Hard-Ruler added a post in a topic Young Robert Baratheon - Robert's Rebellion cast   

    goffanatic, I've got many of the same actors in my dream cast for Robert's Rebellion but in different roles. Alot of lesser known actors too so this might make for a better cast for a TV version

    Starks and Banner-men
    Ned Stark - George Blagden (quiet, unassuming but also a good actor capable of carrying the serious nature of a young Ned) http://www.imdb.com/name/nm4491241/
    Lyanna Stark - Kaya Scodelario http://www.imdb.com/name/nm2546012/?ref_=nv_sr_1
    Brandon Stark - Eoin Macken http://www.imdb.com/name/nm2151126/?ref_=nv_sr_1
    Rickard Stark - John Lynch http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0001487/?ref_=nv_sr_1
    Howland Reed - Martin McCann http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0564901/?ref_=nv_sr_2
    Theo Wull - Luke Massy http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0557567/?ref_=fn_al_nm_1
    Ethan Glover - Matt Milne (Brandon's squire) http://www.imdb.com/name/nm3982608/?ref_=nv_sr_1

    William Dustin - James Robinson http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0732703/?ref_=tt_cl_t1
    Mark Ryswell - Michael Nardone http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0621382/?ref_=nv_sr_1

    Hoster Tully - Tony Curran http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0192889/?ref_=nv_sr_2
    Catelyn Tully - Rachel Hurd-Wood http://www.imdb.com/name/nm1248393/?ref_=nv_sr_1
    Lysa Tully - Georgie Henley http://www.imdb.com/name/nm1670137/?ref_=nv_sr_1

    Tywin Lannister - Rhys Ifans http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0406975/?ref_=nv_sr_1
    Ilyn Payne - Joseph Gatt (since he's in this season of GOT I should probably pick someone else) http://www.imdb.com/name/nm1395532/?ref_=nv_sr_1
    Gregor Clegane - Hafthor Julius Bjornsson (the same actor as this season, he's just 25 so he fits for the timeline of Robert's Rebellion)

    Targaryens and Royalists
    Rhaegar Targaryen - Charlie Hunnam http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0402271/?ref_=nv_sr_1
    Elia Targaryen - Veronica Echegui http://www.imdb.com/name/nm1531585/

    Pyromancer Rossart - Jon Campling http://www.imdb.com/name/nm1376997/?ref_=nv_sr_2
    Ser Arthur Dayne - Clive Standen http://www.imdb.com/name/nm1641140/?ref_=nv_sr_1

    Gerold Hightower - Dave Legeno http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0499270/?ref_=nv_sr_1

    Ashara Dayne - Phoebe Tonkin http://www.imdb.com/name/nm2100081/?ref_=tt_cl_t5
  2. Harald Hard-Ruler added a post in a topic Bryan Cranston for Victarion?   

    I really hope not. It would be a waste of a great actor in a role that doesn't suit him. I could see him as a good Jon Connington though.
  3. Harald Hard-Ruler added a post in a topic Is Lord Eddard Stark underrated as a swordsman.   

    Despite Jaime's assertion that Ser Arthur Dayne could kill 5 men with one hand while taking a piss with the other, I highly doubt the veracity of that. The world of ASOIAF is fairly realistic as far as action goes. The Tickler and Polliver mortally wounded the Hound in a fight and nobody really considers either of them an underrated fighter. The KG are legendary but taking on numerous veteran soldiers at the same time is no easy task for anyone.

  5. Harald Hard-Ruler added a post in a topic Why did Roose personally stab...?   

    Here's something I always wondered. Why does Catelyn refer to Roose as "A man in dark armor and a pale pink cloak spotted with blood" instead of by his name? She knows who Roose is and has met him before...
  6. Harald Hard-Ruler added a post in a topic Thoughts on Gregor   

    If Gregor had killed Loras, he would have been executed for sure. His lover just happens to be the favourite brother of the King and sits on the small council. If it came down to a trial by combat I'm sure Garlan Tyrell or Sandor would be up for a fight.
  7. Harald Hard-Ruler added a post in a topic [Book Spoilers] If Rob's Rebellion were filmed, who would you cast?   

    I've answered this question so many times that I've come up with a pretty extensive list myself. A lot of my choices are the same as the OP's actually. I'll underline my choices that are different
    The Starks

    Rickard - Ian McShane
    Brandon – Eoin Macken
    Lyanna - Kaya Scodelario
    Eddard - Sam Claflin

    The Lannisters
    Tywin - 
Rhys Ifans
    Jaime - Alex Pettyfer
    Cersei - Freya Mavor

    The Targaryens
    Aerys – Gary Oldman
    Rhaella – Joely Richardson
    Rhaegar - Joe Anderson
    Elia - Frieda Pinto

    The Baratheons
    Robert - Tom Hopper
    Stannis – Nicholas Anscombe

    The Tullys
    Hoster - Tony Curran
    Catelyn - Lily Cole
    Lysa - Georgie Henley

    Gregor Clegane - Brian Norton (an Irish professional wrestler, 7ft tall, in his late 20s and mean looking)
    Jon Arryn – Ray Winstone
    Howland Reed – Simon Bird
    Petyr Baelish - Alex Etel
    Jon Connington - Eddie Redmayne
    Ashara Dayne - Kacey Barnfield
    Arthur Dayne - Michael Fassbender
    Gerold Hightower – Ron Perlman (huge fan of the show)
    Oswell Whent – Matthew Goode
    Barristan Selmy – Nathan Fillion (another fan of the show)
    Jonothor Darry - Charles Mesure
    Lewyn Martell - Manu Bennett
    Lyn Corbray - Tom Weston-Jones
  8. Harald Hard-Ruler added a post in a topic Todd Lasance for Darkstar   

    I think this guy would look perfect for the role too. Other than a small role in the last X-Men movie though I haven't really seen his acting ability. http://www.imdb.com/media/rm1815260928/nm1682733
  9. Harald Hard-Ruler added a post in a topic Casting Aegon and Company   

    Aegon: William Mosely http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0608440/?ref_=sr_1 Jon Connington - Sean Harris http://www.imdb.com/media/rm2441196800/nm0365317 Septa Lemore - Polly Walker http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0908116/?ref_=sr_1 I don't really think they'll cast Rolly or Haldon but if they do Diarmaid Murtagh would make a great Rolly http://www.imdb.com/media/rm2664216064/nm2846393 (note: he's the big guy in the pic)
  10. Harald Hard-Ruler added a post in a topic What if Robert Strong isn't actually UnGregor, but rather...   

    I will reiterate my crackpot theory, which a few other seem to have as well. Robert Strong is similar to Frankenstein's monster. A black magic hybrid of Gregor's body, Robb Stark's head and Jaime's sword hand.
  11. Harald Hard-Ruler added a post in a topic David O Hara Should be on the Show   

  12. Harald Hard-Ruler added a post in a topic Mance Rayder, the -uh- Bard(?)   

  13. Harald Hard-Ruler added a post in a topic Moqorro   

    Nonso Anozie could have been perfect if he hadn't already been cast as Zaro Sean Ducksauce
  14. Harald Hard-Ruler added a post in a topic Mance Rayder, the -uh- Bard(?)   

    I agree completely OP. My dream choice for Mance was always Peter Wingfield! Probably best known as Methos from the HIghlander series. http://www.imdb.com/media/rm360548864/nm0935057 And he can sing too
