The recent announcement that Christopher Eccleston may be joining the cast of Game of Thrones has only increased our anticipation for Season 2. So we grabbed our tattered copy of the second book, A Clash of Kings, and started thinking up casting suggestions for some of the other major new characters. See our gallery of who we think best fits each role and then let us know which choices do you agree with and which actors did we overlook in the comments.
With heads being chopped off, little kids getting pushed off of high ledges and Peter Dinklage bedding whores, the much-anticipated premiere of HBO's Game of Thrones was pretty awesome and we're looking forward to the rest of the season. But it's not enough. We want our fantasy literature addiction to combine with our favorite guilty pleasure TV genre and produce more shows that take place in the world created by George R.R. Martin. Here are the reality shows of ice and fire we wish we could see:
This weekend, the highly anticipated HBO series Game of Thrones finally debuts, and while there are legions of fans of George R. R. Martin's A Song of Ice and Fire novels waiting with excitement, other readers are just as eager to nitpick every little detail. At the same time, many HBO viewers may be tuning in for some good drama with a dash of fantasy with no knowledge of the complex mythology of the books. Fashioning a satisfying television show that satisfies these different audiences was a huge undertaking (one several years in the works) that fell squarely on the shoulders of writer-producers David Benioff and Dan Weiss. The duo recently talked to us and other journalists on a media conference call to address concerns and let fans new and old know what to expect.
You can't say no to Cersei and Tyrion. No seriously... you can't say no to them.
Sitcoms get to have all the fun during the holidays, leaving dramas out in the cold when it comes to warm and fuzzy (and sometimes bloody) winter episodes. There are a handful of scripted series we'd love to see celebrate the season with themed episodes, and we're so convinced of their potential that we've even come up with suggested plotlines for them. You can thank us after New Year's.
And absolutely nothing bad happened to these love birds ever again.
Smits and Sons -- a perfect combination.
The game begins again.
This May, round up the usual suspects.
Bye bye Brit-Brit.
