GoT Actors in Other Stuff - Part 2

Recommended Posts

Dolorous Ed in Nativity!

Ha I started watching that but switched on some episodes of Clocking Off that I'd recorded in the last week and he's in that as well!

Robert Pugh featured in an episode I was watching earlier on; he's playing a middle aged father of two who goes for a vasectomy only to find out he's been infertile all his life. Craster never had that problem :uhoh:

I was just flicking through the channels and happened to see Gregor Clegane (aka some Icelandic bloke) in World's Strongest Man. It even went a bit GOT at the end when he won the event, then ripped his shirt to pieces before shouting "I am king of the stones!"

On Hogmanay we were at a house party and Wilko Johnson (Ilyn Payne) was on the Jools Holland special singing (was strange to hear his voice) and playing guitar. I was glad I wasn't the only nerd there who spotted it :cool4:

Not sure if it's been mentioned yet but Jason Momoa is going to be playing Aquaman in the upcoming DC movie.

It's rumoured. He won't say for sure wether he will be playing the character.

Emilia in 'Terminator Genesis' (Getting excited to see her play someone besides Dany)

Charles Dance in 'The Imitation Game' (Looks like it will be a good movie.)

Who can forget Rory in 'Hot Fuzz'...

No, it's official. He's already filmed his scenes.

Just saw The Imitation Game yesterday. Great movie, and just so happened to feature a certain patriarch of a certain powerful house in a supporting role.

I just hope they'll be showing it over here in the original version, I'm really looking forward to it.

It's a very good movie, just kind of depressing. Also, where do you like and why wouldn't they show the original version there?

Aidan Gillan was in Calvary.

Is Calvary any good? I'm a huge fan of the McDonaghs, though as much as I like In Bruges and Seven Psychopaths, The Guard might be my favorite of all of them. Another movie with Brendan Gleeson starring and John Michael behind the camera was almost good enough to tempt me to use a BestBuy giftcard to buy it...but I'd still at least like to have a recommendation because I'm a cheap bastard.

It is my second favourite film of 2014 so far (the first being Whiplash). Brendan Gleeson and really every other member in the cast is brilliant in it. Ireland looks beatiful, the film looks a lot more expenisve than you would think given the low budget. The drama is intense, but at the same time their is this great vein of dark humour running through the story.

If you have any affinity with Ireland or the Catholic Church, the movie gets even better. Not to say that this movie has an overly religious message of course. Atheïsts and believers alike should love this film. Calvary does use a lot of symbolism related to the Passion. You can watch Calvary without that knowledge and it would still be great, but you'll get even more out of it if you're remotely familiar with it.

Whiplash I really want to see too, being that I studied jazz guitar in college, albeit in a significantly less competitive program and without an abusive teacher, though I have heard many horror stories about people who study in more competitive music school type places. But that's neither here nor there.

And, drama mixed with dark humor is exactly why I love McDonagh movies. And I definitely have an affinity with Ireland (I'm Irish American, though I've never been there unfortunately). The Catholic Church...my family is Catholic, I personally consider myself more of a Pantheist, but nonetheless, I'm quite aware of the cultural implications of that. So its nice to know I'll have even more to appreciate knowing that.

Grand Maester Pycelle fired the shots that destroyed the rebel shield generator on Hoth. He also chose poorly at the end of Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade.
