Re-Cast Game of Thrones with actors from any era.

Recommended Posts

GoT may have the best cast on television, but if you had your choice of film actors from any time in history, who would you choose? You may think the current cast member is better than anyone else in history, but please stick to re-casting ideas for this thread. (Though I am having a hard time thinking of an alternate for Peter Dinklage in any era, to be honest)

A few suggestions of my own:

Robert Baratheon - Oliver Reed

Cersei - Marlene Dietrich

Petyr Baelish - Peter Sellers

Eddard Stark - Clint Eastwood

Varys - Peter Lorre

Bronn - Harry Dean Stanton

Danaerys Targaryen - Brigitte Bardot

You get the picture...

the only person i know from that list is Clint Eastwood bahah

Thanks for posting, anyway!

Peter Sellers was the original Inspector Clouseu in the Pink Panther movies and also played multiple parts (including the titular role) in Stanley Kubrick's Dr. Strangelove.

If you watched Big Love, Harry Dean Stanton was the Prophet of Juniper Creek, but I'm thinking of him in his younger years.

Brigitte Bardot is the prototypical French sex kitten of the 60s-

But feel free to suggest contemporary actors, anybody you like- I thought about Sarah Michelle Gellar for Danaerys, for example...

ETA: My avatar is now Oliver Reed

ETAA: not anymore!

Interesting view with Peter Lorre as Varys. He'd be a bit different from book Varys if played by Lorre, but it'd be interesting.

I could see Lorre as Qyburn.

I'm trying, but cant think of a character smooth enough that Cary Grant could play :(

Dean Martin as Davos Seaworth

Richard Burton as Eddard Stark

Steve McQueen as Jaime Lannister

Dean Martin! A young Frank Sinatra as Stannis, then? With Sammy Davis Jr. as Sallador Saan?

Burton- would you have Eliabeth Taylor as Cat?

Nice one- I was having a hard time thinking of a Jaime.

Scratch the Dean Martin actually, he'd be a better Littlefinger, or maybe a cameo as Marillion in the Sky Cell singing 'Volare'.

I'd also have Charlton Heston in a role, maybe as Stannis or Jorah Mormont.

Heston played a Mexican (!) sheriff in Touch of Evil, so maybe he could be Oberyn. Actually I can just see Heston delivering those lines to the Mountain. :D

How about a younger Harrison Ford as Jon Connington?

You got Oliver Reed, Bardot and Peter Sellers perfectly.

How about Catherine Deneuve as Cersei ? And Alain Delon for Jaime ? Maybe Paul Newman as Jaime ? And Alain Delon as Rhaegar or Viserys

Jean-Paul Belmondo as Bron ?

David Niven as Petyr Baelish ?

Anthony Quinn as Doran Martel ?

Yul Brynner as Varys ?

Schwarzenneger as Khal Drogo ?

Kirk Douglas as Ned Stark ?

I was watching The Patriot yesterday and I found out that Jason Isaacs (the guy who plays Col. Tavington, the villian) would have been the PERFECT Roose Bolton. The eyes...

Charlton Heston would be good either Ned Stark or Tywin Lannister.

Charles Bronson would be great Bron. So Belmondo could be Davos maybe ?

Ava Gardner as Melisandre ? Or Fay Dunway ?

Young Harison Ford as John Snow?

Young Elisabeth Taylor as Lyanna Stark?

I like Deneuve as Cersei. Or maybe Isabelle Huppert? Alain Delon for Rhaegar, definitely. Newman's a nice touch for Jaime. Douglas for the Ned could work, but why do I feel like there's a perfect Ned (other than Sean Bean) that we're missing?

Bronson is perfect. What about Isabelle Adjani for Melisandre? A young Klaus Kinski for Ramsay Snow? Orson Welles for Wyman Manderlay?
