Hello from Benioff and Weiss

Recommended Posts

WHERE IS STRONG BELWAS, you could have just used the same actor that played Drogo.

Are you serious?

The actor who played Xaro Xhoan Ducksauce would be much better. :P

Hello everyone--

We just wanted to say 'Hi,' and thank you guys for everything: your love of the amazing world George has created, your enthusiasm for the HBO adaptation -- and of course, your casting expertise. It's hardly been two days since George, Elio and Linda put the call out, and you've already made dozens of great suggestions, the vast majority of which are new to us. It's crucial that we get the casting right, and you're all providing invaluable help in that area.

We'll be neck deep in pre-production soon, so apologies in advance if we're unable to respond to every individual question or suggestion. But we'll be checking in as often as possible, and when decisions are finally made, we'll let you know as soon as the ink is dry. And when things are a bit further down the road with production, we'll do a Westeros email interview or online chat. Who knows, maybe George can even drop in and join us, Old Gods willing.

Until then, we look forward to all your thoughts -- this is a labor of love for us, and it's an honor to have so many Maesters watching over us and making sure we get it right.

Valar Morghulis,

David and Dan ("D.B.")

Wow. All this time, I never noticed this. It's great to see how our little corner of the world has grown so much in just a few years. Thanks D&D!

An honor to have joined in on this forum! Just finished "Dances With Dragons" and am excited to see how the series plays out. Love how closely the show's stayed to the books!

Well, this is a very active fandom, and I guess they just can't afford to ignore our thoughts and opinions, because we are watching the show.

In case you (D&D) read this: you're doing an awesome job! :cheers:

Ian McDiarmid as the Kindly Man. I saw him in Chicago as Timon of Athens and just kept thinking through the whole play "the Kindly Man, the Kindly Man........"

That's...actually pretty brilliant.

Ian McShane would be a good Doran. For some reason I can't help but think Edward James Olmos would kill it as Doran as well.

I've been saying this forever :) Ian McShane would be PERFECT as Doran!

Also, since you guys dropped the ball with Dominic West (he thought 6 months in Iceland), try again for him to be the Red Viper!

The Borgias has been cancelled so there's a whole bunch of great actors that will be free for Game of Thrones. The guy that played Cesare Borgia, Francois Arnaud (http://www.imdb.com/name/nm2957696/) could easily fit for a few characters and should definitely be considered. Depending on how young or old D&D want Victarion to be, he could fill that role. Same goes for Darkstar, Young Griff (although I'd prefer Mitch Hewer), or Euron.
