from Winter is Coming@blogspot: Jason Momoa as Drogo!
It looks like Jason Momoa may have been cast as Drogo. Supposedly the actor himself announced it at Armageddon Expo in Melbourne, Australia. Here is a report from someone who was at the convention.

Great stuff today. I love Michael Shanks, and I really hope he wears the beak, you have no idea. And I think Jason Mamoa (who was on Stargate: Atlantis) is perfect for Drogo. That’s not how I pictured him when I read the book, but when I saw the article I thought “Huh, that’s interesting. I can see that”.

What do you think of the casting choices? Who would you have picked?
