As Jaime Lannister...

Spain
... we have Nikolaj Coster-Waldau.

I dropped several hints about him. Dutch Treat - NCW played the lead in NEW AMSTERDAM. Going out for a Danish - NCW is actually a Dane. Shows get cancelled - NEW AMSTERDAM was cancelled by Fox. Characters get cancelled - NCW was also in VIRTUALITY, where his character was killed.

And too good to be true? When he was cast, I went searching for him on the internet, I found this on YouTube and couldn't resist:




Watch that, and I think you'll agree, he'll make a terrific Jaime.

I love this video, we passed it around a bit and kicked the idea around that this was the too good to be true. He is going to rock this role!!!!

My favourite role of his is in the film The Baker where he plays a hitman hunting after Milo, the main character. He's both menacing and screamingly funny in it. New Amsterdam was also a vastly under-rated show. NCW showed quite a lot of range in it. Fox's loss is our gain.

NCW
I have seen most of his movies (am Danish myself) and I find it mindboggling that they have cast him. While certainly a decent actor, I have seen very little in his movies that even vaguely gives a hint of playing someone like Jaime.

/shrug

(I am still psyched about HBO making this though, I can't wait for the first previews to hit the interwebs)

He looks like a fine actor. I've always pictured Jaime as appearing a bit more feminine, facially. But, at least you get to have your man crush. I'm not hating.

I'm really happy with the cast so far and you sure have some smart fans GRRM, they figured out all the clues in Winter is Coming blog and Westeros forum not to mention here.

*sigh* I totally feel like Brienne right now. I like this Jaimy, I like this Jaimy a lot.
Ever since the rumors he was my favorite Jaimy and I'm glad he made it!!!!!

Also enjoyed his small role in The Baker, currently making its way through the festival circuit.

Brilliant, I've seen him in Misery Harbor, and I must say I agree he'll make the perfect Jaime.

He really looks like Aaron Eckhart. Would be cool if they cast him as papa Lannister.

I think Aaron Eckhart(41) is a bit young to play Nikolaj's(39)father...

Yes he is a pretty boy. But he has that nose on his face that gives him a sense of uniqueness. It does not spoil his hotness, it enhances it. Yeah, he definitely marks the doom of passion. Poor Brienne.

Yes!
Well we nailed it over at WIC, come join us!
More importantly, thats the smirk in which i've envisioned. Well done to HBO GRRM D&D and all involved. Truly, the cast is "Too good to be True." Anxiously awaiting Cersei, or just one clue George. I'm sure we'd break the news first.lol, we're "Aces!"

Oooooooh yes. Amaaaaazing cast you've got yourself there, Mr Martin. I for one think that every choice is spot on. I cannot wait to see this!

And also, I completely love Muse, and their version of Can't Take My Eyes of You. Perfect! :)

I'm very excited about NCW playing the part. He does have something lion-ish about his appearance. Now I'm interested who would play Cercei, they were supposed to come in twos.

Would you believe I'm jumping up and down in glee right now? Well, not right now, wouldn't be typing then, but you know what I mean. *g*

Yes!!! Some months ago, when George announced there was going to be a pilot filmed, I thought Nicolaj would be the perfect Jaime (at least look-wise), so I'm thrilled he finally made it. Jaime is my favourite character and I would have been really upset if they had cast the wrong person. Yay!!!!!!!!!
