Let the Game commence! Again!
Yes, the casting for Game of Thrones Season 7 new faces has begun… and it has begun in style as acting legend Jim Broadbent signs on.
Star of such classics as Time Bandits, Brazil and Harry Potter, Broadbent is still a genuine delight to watch, no matter what he’s doing, so we’re hoping he’ll not pop up for five minutes and die horribly, never to be seen again.
We mean, it’s ok if his character dies horribly – it IS Game of Thrones after all – but let’s have a few weeks with him first.
But we’re hearing his will be a significant role so we’re expecting much speculating and rumours over the coming weeks and months, although one we’re hearing – and liking – is that there’ll be more flashbacks to the Tower of Joy and beyond and we may see him as the Mad King, Aerys Targaryen.
Now, we doubt it, but isn’t it fun to guess? Yes, yes it is…
As we said already, let the Game commence.
Thoughts on his casting or who he’ll play? Let us know…
