As Jaime Lannister...

... 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.

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.

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!!!!!!!!!

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.
