So with casting drawing near I thought it would be fun to make some predictions about who we think will be cast in the upcoming pilot. This is going to be different than most casting discussions because it is not about who you think would be good for a role but about who you think they will actually cast. Sure a lot of people may want Sean Bean for the role of Ned, but what are the chances he would actually do it? It will be fun to look back on this post in a few months and see how many (if any) we actually got right.
Just so you know what characters to make predictions on, here is a list of the major characters appearing in the pilot (based off the leaked script).
I’ll start us off with probably the easiest prediction to make, Peter Dinklage as Tyrion. With the AICN rumor reported on a while back, he is the only actor to have any sort of connection to the series. Plus everyone and their mom agrees he was born to play the role.
Now it’s your turn. Channel your inner Nostradamus and let us know who you think will be starring in the Game of Thrones pilot!
