It was just a matter of time before the folks at Bad Lip Reading got their hands, or mouths, onto the epic series that is Game of Thrones. They’ve gone the extra mile and added some humorous visuals as well.

Actor Jack Gleeson, who plays the super twistedly evil and bratty King Joffrey Baratheon in Game of Thrones, may have you scratching your head, wondering if this is really the same guy who plays such a horrifying character. And rare is the times when he is open to an interview to answer questions about the show, his character, and himself.
So, check out the video and watch the delightful Jack Gleeson NOT be Joffrey during.
Game of Thrones star Jack Gleeson joined UCD’s Q-Soc for an exhaustive interview / Q+A covering his career as a child in Batman Begins to life on the set of Game of Thrones, playing the villainous King Joffrey Baratheon and writing and performing with own theatre group, Collapsing Horse Theatre Company.

A few months ago it was announced that Mark Gatiss, known for his role on Sherlock, was added to the cast of Game of Thrones, but up until now who he was playing was a mystery. Thanks to WinterIsComing.net who discovered that Gatiss’ CV online lists the name of the his Thrones character– Tycho Nestoris.
For those of you who have not read the books, you can find out more about Tycho Nestoris here.
Is the third time really a charm?
Game of Thrones, has recast Ser Gregor Clegane aka The Mountain That Rides, for the THIRD time. The character now be portrayed by Icelandic athlete Hafthor “Thor” Julius Bjornsson:
Ser Gregor was originally played by Conan Stevens in Season One, who was later replaced by Ian Whyte in Season Two. The character was kept out of Season 3 completely.
Entertainment Weekly interviewed the cast of Game of Thrones during San Diego Comic-Con back in July, and it was posted some weeks ago, but if you haven’t seen it, now’s your chance to do so!
Over the past month, Mark Gatiss, Joseph Gatt, and Michael Huisman have all been cast in unspecified roles for Game of Thrones Season 4.
We’ve seen a lot of speculation on the issue, but The Mary Sue has some interesting theories:
It’s a fair bet that Gatt will play Styr, Magnar of Thenn, since we know he’s definitely showing up in season four and Gatt looks, well, Styr-y. My guess for Gatiss is Merrett Frey; if you haven’t read the books, do not Google him, as pretty much everything about his character constitutes a major spoiler. Mace Tyrell and Oberyn Martell have already been cast …
If we are getting book four characters one of the Martells is also a possibility, though the show has cast persons of color for the two of them we know we’re getting so far (Oberyn and Ellaria Sand). Might we be seeing Ser Arys Oakheart, the Kingsguard member who protects Myrcella in Dorne? Huisman visually matches Oakheart for me more than any other character, but that doesn’t necessarily mean anything.
HBO has officially released the Season 3 deleted scene shown at Comic-Con! The scene shows a tense talk between Tywin Lannister and Grand Maester Pycelle after the latter loses his seat on the council.
Thanks, Winter is Coming!
