More Casting to Come

Glad to see everyone so excited about the casting.

We're not done yet by any means. Roles still to be filled for the pilot include Bran, Jory, Hullen, Jeyne Poole, Septa Mordane, Maester Luwin, Ser Rodrik, Grand Maester Pycelle, Khal Drogo, Magister Illyrio, and the threesome from the prologue, Gared, Will, and Waymar Royce.
And the ever-popular Red-Headed Whore and Nameless Eunuch.

Rickon, Tommen, Myrcella, and Beth will be non-speaking parts.

People are getting way ahead of themselves with suggestions for Varys, Littlefinger, Lord Tywin, Ser Barristan, Renly, Stannis, Melisandre, etc. None of those characters appear in the pilot, and some won't appear until the second season.

Assuming, of course, that we get that far.

Re: No little finger, Vary, or Tywin first season???
You've misunderstood what GRRM wrote.

"None of those characters appear in the pilot, and some won't appear until the second season."

If HBO options an entire first series, then other major characters who haven't been cast for the first one or two hour pilot will then be hired. And there may be recasts of people already seen if there's a schedule conflict, money conflict, or they just plain don't work out in the role. The pilot episode couldn't possibly cover the entire novel of AGoT.
