The Last Man Cast...

... (but certainly not the least) was our intrepid horselord, Khal Drogo of the Dothraki.

The search for the right khal was exhaustive, and included auditions on four separate continents (maybe five, not sure if those Brazilian readings ever took place). As with several other parts, there were a lot of great readings, and the producers had several interesting choices.

The final nod went to Jason Momoa, who is best known to American television viewers for his role on STARGATE: ATLANTIS.




I blush to confess that I have never seen any STARGATE but the movie... but Jason's auditions were terrific, displaying all the fierceness that our khal requires, but showing warmth and tenderness in the softer scenes as well. And yes, his haka was terrific.

Khal Drogo was the last of the speaking roles to be filled, so the cast is now complete... until and unless the show gets picked up to series, when we'll start the process all over again to find Littlefinger, Varys, Ser Barristan, Renly, Loras, Hodor, Lord Tywin, and all the rest of our merry company.

But I'll worry about that later. Tomorrow we're off to the UK.

See ya.

This is possibly the greatest casting choice in the history of performance art.

OF COURSE the series will get picked up. What's with all this "unless" bullshit. You mean "when." :-)

Wow, good call! I'm trying to think of his character's name on Stargate, but yeah, that's pretty much how I pictured Drogo.
