HBO confirms director, actor for Game of Thrones

The Hollywood Reporter and GRR Martin have both announced the director and one of the leads in the upcoming adaptation of Game of Thrones.

I have only just starting reading this series, but this looks pretty awesome!!

Peter Dinklage will be playing Tyrion Lannister, which seems absolutely perfect.

It looks like it will film in Belfast starting this year.

Discuss!

I cannot think of a better Tyrion. Of course, he’s been the odds-on favorite for it in every “Cast A Game Of Thrones” thread on every message board since well before HBO announced they were filming it.

I think a blond Kate Walsh would make a great Cersi Lannister.
