Sorry if it's been mentioned, but Mackenzie Crook (Orell the wildling) can be found on Almost Human as Rudy the wacky lab guy. It's a good roll for him.

I watched the BBC adaptation of "Great Expectations" with Mark "Bobby Baratheon" Addy and Harry "Viserys" Lloyd. And I really liked it.

Anyone excited for Kit Harrington in Pompeii?

Not just because he's shirtless, either. ;)

Yes, I am. For every reason.

Davos plays the bad guy in Dog Soldiers. He's awesome.

Jaimie is in Oblivion I think. Just a small roll though.

Cersei is the queen in 300 and the main bad guy in Dredd.

Jorah is the bad guy in one of the Resi Evil films.

Sean Beans been in a few things.

King Robert was a stripper in some 90's film that may or may not hae also starred Ned.

Marg is also Ann Boleyn.

Melisandre plays a witch in a Sean bean medieval film... Forgot it's name. Bean gets pulled in half by 2 horses lol. Spoiler!

Erm... I can't think of too many more.

Roose and Davos are in Titanic: Blood and Steel



Viserys is in the BBC Adaptation of Robin Hood and Theon's dad (well the actors) plays the Sheriff...he's hilarious!



Tywin was in an episode of BBC Merlin, playing an evil Witch finder. As always, he nailed the part and had a very Tywin vibe to him.



Also, I know the actors names but I know some other people don't so I just call them their character- easier to associate with than naming the actor, it's not ignorance just logical.



Oh, and Maegary is going to play a bald chick in the next two films of the Hunger Games franchise.

I think it's been mentioned, but Stannis, Daario and Benjen are all in The Bridge.



Funny seeing Stannis try to arrest Benjen for the murder of Daario.

James Cosmo (The Old Bear/Jeor Mormont) was in Braveheart as Campbell AKA Hamish's dad. Really weird as he somehow looks older in Braveheart than he does in GoT.

Definitely! I remember being very confused when I found that out.

Hamish: Some men are longer than others.

Campbell: Your mother been telling ya stories about me again, eh?

Viserys is in the BBC Adaptation of Robin Hood and Theon's dad (well the actors) plays the Sheriff...he's hilarious!

Harry Lloyd had a funny quip about that on his only commentary track (from Season 1, obviously). Daniel Minahan commented on how comfortable Alfie looked wielding a bow, and he said something like "of course he does, he's been watching Robin Hood."

I'm sure this has been mentioned, but I only recently learned that Hallyne (the pyromancer who supplies Tyrion's wildfire in Season 2) is played by Roy Dotrice, narrator of the ASOIAF audiobooks.

Also common knowledge around here I'm sure that Ser Ilyn Payne is a bad ass on guitar: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wMlhWvIh7U4 (still going strong in the face of terminal cancer)

Michelle Fairley was supposed to narrate GRRM's Windhaven but I can only find it done by Harriet Walter.

Of top of my head in Strikeback there is Liam Cunningham,Iain Glen,Charles Dance and the guy who was Jaqen after he changed his face.

I thought Cunningham was nothing short of brilliant as the Irish bomber in that - one terrifying individual.
