Game Of Thrones Finds It's King Beyond The Wall

Via Wikipedia
Ciaran Hinds, who has previously played Caeser in Rome, Bland in Tinker, Tailor, Soilder, Spy, Tardos Mors in John Carter, Reiss in Lara Croft and the Cradle of Life, and most recently doing a damned good Bill Clinton impression in the incredibly shitty Political Animals, has been cast as Mance Rayder for season three of Game of Thrones.

Full disclosure: while some people love Mance, I was never taken with him. He never gripped me as a character, and I thought was poorly, or under, used, past his introduction. And Hinds, while very talented, has a tendency to appear in god awful productions, which taints my opinion of him slightly.

So on the whole, an actor I'm ambivalent about will be playing a character I feel nothing for. Cheers.
