"In the wake of the Red Wedding, how does the North pick up the pieces and with their greatest enemy seemingly crushed, where does that leave the Lannisters. Daenerys Targaryen now has an army but is she ready to take back her homeland. Does Jon Snow turn south to seek revenge or remember his duty along the Wall?"


Game Of Thrones returns for its fourth season in March.

Who was the second?

He's a big guy but he doesn't seem quite intimidating enough, or old enough. He's supposed to be Sandor older brother

I wish they'd get Conan Steve's back. This guy looks large. Maybe he'll be good.

Looks fine to me.

He's distinctly missing a mashed up face on his fist!

he looks too young

The only question remaining? How long until he shows his weiner.

Casual viewers won't even notice they changed the actor. And there's always a chance he will use a helm in his main scene, like in the book.

Why the hell do they keep recasting this guy??
fatcobra - 1/5/2014, 7:51 AM
This guy looks like he could play Skurge in the next Thor movie. Get on it, Marvel!

The guy is huge, one of the biggest WSM competitors in both height and weight.

"Who was the second?"

What's his name...Whyte? He's the guy who played the White Walker in the first episode. He also played the Predator in both AVP movies. I think most people saw him as the Mountain and had no idea it was supposed to be the same character.

"Casual viewers won't even notice they changed the actor."

Like I said above, I think most viewers won't get that it's supposed to be the same character. There's SO many people in this story, that I think it'll just be written off as a new guy rather than someone they've seen before who looks very different.

He has the right look, but his age is a bit awkward. He's 20 years younger than Rory McCann, who plays the Hound, and the Mountain is the older of the two brothers.

What sucks about the Mountain been recast twice is that in the end Conan Stevens leaving the show to do The Hobbit turned out to be quite pointless, since they made Bolg into a digital character and had Lawrence Makoare play him.

I don't even remember the first 2.

I met Ian Whyte at Dublin ComicCon. Nice guy.

Did Conan Stevens ever comment on how he felt about leaving one of the hottest TV shows these days for a role in a movie trilogy that he ended up being seen in for 1-3 seconds before being replaced by a CGI creature based on another actor?

This new guy looks great in terms of sheer size, but yeah, he does seem a little young for the role.
Nomis1800 - 1/5/2014, 11:08 AM
I like the guys BIG

@Seejay

I know it's only 9 minutes, but what am I to glean from that?
Floke - 1/5/2014, 11:53 AM
Perhaps this guy on the right would have been better? Swedish bodybuilder/gladiator Roger Zapfe. At over 2 meters, he is huge. And old enough. Plus he looks intense. The guy on the left is Magnus Samuelson multiple wsm-champion
ruadh - 1/5/2014, 12:31 PM
I forgot about that one. Man, they need better contracts with these people.
capcyclopsftw - 1/5/2014, 1:05 PM
We'll get a trailer in Feb around the blu ray release of season 3.

He also just broke a World Record

Thats him throwing a 12.5 kg keg over 8 meters into the air.
nowtheresaBATman - 1/5/2014, 2:45 PM
The Mountain doesn't smile.
nonserviam - 1/5/2014, 3:41 PM
They seriously need to stop posting pics of him smiling at everything. I understand that he must be happier than a pig in $#!+ , but he's ruining the evil perception of Gregor Clegane for me.
