Thanks to The Rabbit doing some renewed digging, we have a new casting to report and what may be the director breakdown for the second season.
First, the casting news: according to this CV, Paul Kealyn will be playing the role of Weasel.
I’m going to assume that this is the role of Weese in the books. Whether the CV is incorrect or the name of the role has changed is unclear. We know from set reports though that there is a Weese character. In the books, Weese is an understeward that is in charge of some of the servants at Harrenhal. Some further research reveals the character is in fact named Weasel and will be acting as a gaoler at Harrenhal. This looks to be Kealyn’s first television role.
The second find was this CV of actor Darren Killeen, who plays a Baratheon guard in two episodes. Of interest is the directors listed for those episodes. Assuming they are listed in respective order, then we now have enough info to piece together the director breakdown for season two. Ran at Westeros.org has done just that and provides this list:
Episode 1: Alan Taylor (confirmed to be present in Dubrovnik for episode 1 scenes)
Episode 2: Alan Taylor
Episode 3: Alik Sakharov
Episode 4: David Petrarca
Episode 5: David Petrarca
Episode 6: David Nutter
Episode 7: David Nutter
Episode 8: Alan Taylor
Episode 9: Neil Marshall
Episode 10: Alan Taylor
UPDATE 1/10/12: HBO has confirmed that this is the director lineup for season two.
Winter Is Coming: Kealyn looks like he could be a good Weese. And I like the director breakdown. To begin and end with the best season one director, Alan Taylor, is perfect. And Marshall is the perfect director for Blackwater. Looking forward to seeing what Sakharov, Petrarca and Nutter do with their episodes.
