WiC posters look as though they strike gold again – though not without a little help from Elio of Westeros, who got the whole ball rolling with his first guess for Shagga. Note that these have not been confirmed, and are only our best guesses thus far. Here’s who we have, in order of the clues presented:
Lalor Roddy as Catspaw: Roddy was in The Guards, played Garda Royle in Summer of the Flying Saucer, was in Boy Eats Girl, was in As the Beast Sleeps, Murphy’s Law (because anything that can go wrong will go wrong), The Escapist (Kavalier and Clay). I think he also played a guard in the Michael Fassbender movie Hunger (though he could have been a prisoner too – not sure).
Credit Shinyteapot if we’re right.
Simon Lowe as Wineseller: WiC poster Crazy Diamond said: “He’s not simple (Simon), not high (Lowe), been to the beach (was in something called Beach Boys), has crossed the Mersey (was in the TV show Mersey Beat), has seen his share of doctors (has been in many episodes of Doctors), and once went down in flames, oh the humanity (reference to the Hindenburg, and he’s been in a TV show of the same name).”
But credit Veelo for the original find. Good work!
Mark Lewis Jones as Shagga: Jones is Welsh, has played a number of cop roles, and was Mr. Hogg in Master and Commander. Not sure about the Nobleman part (King Uther Pendragon is no mere noble), but likely Jones has played one sometime during his storied career. A little older and wiser than I pictured Shagga, but … that’s why they call it acting. Of all the guesses, this one I am most unsure about, but I’m sticking with it for now.
Credit Ran, King o’ the Westeros boards if this pans out.
Clive Mantle as Greatjon Umber: He’s not the guy who had more dingers (home runs, i.e. Maris), or even the one who chased him all summer (Mickey Mantle). Thanks to Ace for his baseball breakdown. Mantle played James Martin in the 2005 version of Poseidon Adventure. Mantle is also the tallest actor at 6’ 5″ to have played Little John in the Robin Hood TV series.
Credit Maxwell James if this is right. Looks right to me!
Fire And Blood: Triple stoked that they got the Greatjon. Now give us Roose Bolton and the Mirri Mad Maegi … and we have ourselves A Game of Thrones.
