once more into the breach..

froggy
Vengeance is his. Frankenstein and Nessie are friends of his, but don't say he's never been human... but was he Irish or Eskimo? Born in Scotland, that we know. He's been a fisherman, a minister, an inspector, and a malingerer. Down the slippery slope he slides, toward the kingdom of bones, but will he lose his head?

{{THE NEXT DAY}}

Thanks for playing, everyone.

Some of you got it. Some of you didn't.

It's actor JOHN STAHL.



He will be portraying one of Robb Stark's bannermen, Lord Rickard Karstark.

The major roles for season two of GAME OF THRONES have all been filled, but casting continues in London, Belfast, and Dublin for various smaller parts.

Just a guess
Could he be Brian Cox? Huge part as thr great king Agammemnon in Troy. Greetings from Portugal. Hope our ancient and in some sort epic history, could inspire, some day, the most gifted and tallented writer of our days.

Sounds like John Stahl to me, but I admit, I can't quite figure out the role. Qhorin Halfhand? Lord Karstark?

I was thinking Patrick Bergin, as he has a lot of the right credentials, but he wasn't born in Scotland. Dangit. My brain hurts.

He was also in BEING HUMAN which seems to clinch it.

Recalling the role in the series (he played a pathologist in three episodes of Season 2), he's definitely rather older than I'd expect Qhorin Halfhand to be. I think a lord is more likely ("Vengeance is mine, said the lord," is a common misquote of the line in the Bible).

Other elements suggest Lord Karstark. We already had an actor cast in the role for Season 1, but since his name is never mentioned on-screen and he had one line, not a huge deal.

I think you got it
I was looking at the same movie.. but leaning towards Ian Holm just because..

But I think you've nailed it......

I don't know about the thespian but surely the part must be of Rattlebones, right?
Ok, it's 2 am here...I'll sleep on it
Good luck guys

Sounds right to me, he's the lord of the "kingdom of bones"?

Karstark? Maybe...
I'm thinking its Jimmy Yuill as Lord Karstark... but I'm not sure.

Once more
It is John Stahl, who played in Frankensetin play and Being Human, Scottish, and is he going to play Davos the Onion Knight, who wants revenge for his lost sons and he had his finger bones lost too?

Re: Once more
Davos is already cast -- Irish actor Liam Cunningham was announced for the role awhile back.

Re: Once more
And Davos doesn't.....Oooop....That was almost a spoiler alert.

After seeing his profile on IMDB, I agree that John Stahl is the actor. And I'm almost certain that he's going to be Lord Karstark.

Isn't Vengeance the name of Victarion Greyjoy's longship?

nevermind, I fact-checked myself & found the name of the ship: Iron Victory

into the breach, he dived under the breach (ships)

is the kingdom of bones the seabed where his finger bones floated down to?

Brian Cox is a good guess...but perhaps Robbie Coltrane? And the character could be Janos Slynt?

Janos Slynt was cast and appeared in the first season.

Prince Oberyn Martell
I might be way off but my guess is we are casting Prince Oberyn Martell. - The vengence part. I'm not qualified to make any guess about foreign actors though.

Re: Prince Oberyn Martell
Since A STORM OF SWORDS seems to have been split into two seasons, it's likely that Oberyn wouldn't appear until near the end of the third season at the earliest, potentially not until the start of the fourth.

Mance rayder? He is leading wildlings "into the breach". Maybe the "slippery slope" is the wall?

Has to be John Stahl, no? Karstark would be my guess...

Obviously Sean Connery for Tormund Giantsbane. It is known.

John stahl seems to fit the bill. Will he be the blackfish I wonder?

Nick Brimble.

Sounds like he should be Davos Seaworth... except that the role is already cast. Looks to fit the role of Rattleshirt.

I'd have to agree with John Stahl and Rattleshirt ..... seems to fit all the clues.

John Stahl as Rattleshirt. Kingdom of Bones = Lord of Bones, Slippery slope must be the Wall
