Twitter Buzz: Game of Thrones Season 2 Casting News

An actor from the canceled STARZ show Camelot has revealed some interesting casting news about HBO's Game of Thrones. Really opens up the possibility of an A-lister joining the show in Season 2.

British actor Clive Standen, who most recently played Sir Gawain in Starz’s now defunct Camelot, has let slip via Twitter that he has heard the names of three actors that will be added to the Game of Thrones cast for season two. He calls the news “MASSIVE” and reveals that one of the 3 appeared with him on Camelot, while another appeared in some other Arthurian film or TV show.

While I could care less about someone from STARZ's Camelot being cast in the show, it's the second tweet that gets me excited. Based on that statement and the fact that he described the news as MASSIVE CASTING NEWS could we be looking at either Richard Gere [First Knight], Clive Owen [King Arthur], or maybe...gasp....Sean Connery [First Knight]?

Game of Thrones is an American medieval fantasy television series created for HBO by David Benioff and D. B. Weiss. The series is based on author George R. R. Martin's best-selling A Song of Ice and Fire series of seven planned fantasy novels, the first of which is called A Game of Thrones. The series debuted in the U.S. on April 17, 2011. Game of Thrones has been extremely well received, and has garnered a loyal fanbase. The series was picked up for a second season on April 19, 2011, two days after its premiere.
