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.

Ooh.... Yes, he'll be lovely as Jaime. Damn, I wish I could act, I'd try out for Cersei *laughs*

I think I just had palpitations I'm so excited. I loved New Amsterdam and especially Nikolaj. YAYAYYA!

Maybe I'll start forgiving 'them' now for cancelling New Amsterdam, since if that was still on the air he couldn't be Jaime.

I agree. That was a bad season for a lot of good shows, I've been very frustrated ever since. But now the healing can begin. I may even start watching Fox again... at least until they cancel another great show. So, that's probably midway through next season.

Utterly PERFECT casting!

I just gotta say - YUM. He is almost exactly how I pictured Jaime while reading the books, which scares me not a little.

Yup. Hot. Kinda got that Sean Bean vibe.

All right!
This guy is gonna rock as Jaime Lannister. Jaime is became one of my favorite characters once some of the story was shown from his POV.

Wow. I'm not familiar with his work, but he certainly looks just like Jaime looks in my head. Not with the short hair, but around 1:27 in this video? That's Jaime!

Wow. Just wow. I fully agree with this choice!

I guess the most difficult casting decision now is who will play his twin. I wouldn't want this job right now.

I can't begin to tell you how happy this makes me.

"Virtuality" was great, and he was great in it, so this bodes well.

Wow
An actor I never heard of or saw before--but he is dead on Jaime for looks. I didn't think there was a chance for that. I'm excited!

Yes!
All I can say is oh... yes...

That is TOTALLY the Jaime I imagined. And prrrow.

Great Dane
Great to have someone with viking-blood play the kingslayer.

Yup..
Good job on this one. Nailed it dead on for resemblance and acting ability. Outstanding.

Jaime
Oh man, after viewing pics, finding information on him, and reading parts of the leaked script (and casting sides), I totally see him as the perfect Jaime. He's perfect, exactly how I pictured him. No wait, he's better than I imagined!

Not bad. But I was really hoping it would be Tom Brady.

Oh yeah. That'll do just fine. :-)
