It would be awesome if you'd managed to talk Sean Connery out of retirement for the role :D

God if you got Sean Connery to be the Old Knight I'd die XD

I know that's likely waaaay off the mark, but hell it would be fun XD

As much as I'd love to say Sean Connery, thats just too obvious. T_T but it would be amazing.

I can't believe it!
You got Derek Jacobi! He will be brilliat as Ser Baristan. He was the Master on Doctor Who. The Friar is Brother Cadfael. He's performed with Honor Blackman, Sean Bean, Lena Hedley, etc. etc. This cast keeps getting better and better.

Well, we got a clue that's a little tougher to Google.

And, frankly, I don't really want to see the matches I get when I google for "pussy galore".

I think that Cillian Murphy's character in "Breakfast on Pluto" was named Pussy Galore as well.

You guys are way off
Pussy Galore was the chick in a Roger Moore Bond flick....Octopussy. Perhaps the only time Moore made a good Bond film.

Sigh.....Don't worry, George....I'll guess your Barristan......(or am I the one who is way off now?)

Re: You guys are way off
Pussy Galore is a female stunt pilot in Goldfinger, with Sean Connery. The character in Octopussy is called exactly that, hence the title.

It's probably Alun Armstrong, the actor connections seem to exist (checked only 3 of them I think), and browsing through his imdb I see a role as a Superintendent and as a pastor (also as sergeant and corporal)

I think its Armstrong as well. The only person I can't directly connect him to is Iain Glen. However, they have both been in the Royal Shakespeare Company, and maybe that's close enough to satisfy GRRM's clues.

He worked with Headey on Onegin, Bean on Patriot Games, and has appeared in "New Tricks" with Honor Blackman (aka Pussy Galore).

As far as Jacobi go, if George had added "emperor" to the list of occupations... But I've got I, Claudius on the brain. Anyways, I don't believe it's him, though he'd certainly be more than up to the part.

Only the pilot is being cast, folks. Barristan doesn't show up. It's Ser Rodrik Cassel, certainly. I doubt it's Connery, very much -- he's retired from acting, and if he weren't, well, Ser Rodrik isn't exactly a huge role for him.

If Gert Frobe wasn't dead, I'd have guessed him. He actually was in the Nazi party and he played Auric Goldfinger. Alas, he is deceased.

Maybe they're taking a new spin on Ser Rodrik.

Looking through Michael Hogan's IMDB I noticed he had a number of the required titles in his various parts. I would also absolutely love him.

Furthermore, googling "Micheal Hogan and Sean Bean" revealed this little tidbit

"Brian Cox as Major Michael Hogan and Sean Bean as Richard Sharpe in "Sharpe's Eagle." Which could satisfy the knowledge department, in a way.

Digs into beard which doesn't exist...
It has to be a brit-I vote Michael Caine-which would be epic.

No idea-I'm watching football.

Steven Berkoff
What about Gen. Orlov from Octapussy? Steven Berkoff has been many things- a doctor, a Nazi (Hitler), a colonel (Russian in Rambo), a Sgt, a cpl (in 1959).

I'm voting for the Greyjoys to win the Game of Thrones.

I will spare you the posting of a direct link.

A final summation of Mozart's accurate solution to GRRM's riddles. I filled in a couple of blanks, so that there was no question about the accuracy. Speculation is that he will be playing Ser Rodrik Cassel.

Amazing Ryan. Ser Rodrik would seem likely...good show.

Also, keep in mind that according to Ian Flemming, Pussy Galore is always Mr. M's secretary. Knowing that may put a new light on the Swokowski brothers use of the name Pussy Funny as The Frenchman's girl in The Matrix.
