Recipe for a Sunday Morning

Hiya kids, hiya, hiya.

You're too dumb to make this soup the way they're making it in Belfast. Start with Becky, Tom, and Boss. Take away two fathoms. Now you want the second course. In the dark the breaker of rocks seeks the living stone. But take away the fat guy with six wives, and the babe with the bumbershoot as well, that salty wench. Out, out. What's left tastes good, but just remember, there is no gamecock in aurochs stew. IMDB? What's that? I'm Dumb Boy? Won't help you here, no way, no how.

The eff...? How are we supposed to even start? How many roles we talkin'?

So ... is it Mark Stanley or Marc Stanley that we're looking at?

That link keeps timing out on me, Elio, so I can't see whatever you're referencing. A picture or resume, presumably.

But yes, you've solved it. Mark Stanley will be playing Grenn.

I'll post a picture of him, but it may need to wait until tomorrow. Ty is off today, and my computer is running fast as a glacier. You won't find our guy on IMDB (yet), however. And while a Google search turns up lots of Mark Stanleys, none of them are our guy. (One, however, plays for the South Carolina Gamecocks).

As ever, you guys are scary. Especially Ran.

Yeah, very slow site I'm afraid. Yorkshire born actor, the link is to his page at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama.

Back in the early days, I figured out one or two of your clues pretty quickly, but of late they've been real bastards to figure out. This one, though, sort of just came together because I know way too much about African explorers. ;)

I hate to sound shallow but my oh my is he attractive.

1) Mr. Martin, you've lost your damned mind, sir. You're giggling, aren't you?
2) Watching the logic unfold from Westeros.org and Winter-is-Coming.net is mind boggling. I am so glad there are smarter people in the world than I.
3) I'm fairly certain that there are a number of governments going to start cracking codes by using geekdom fan clues. Watching people figure this out is almost as entertaining as any of the 297927 procedural cop shows out there!

It's not a problem to solve these riddles because we are the ones reading your books...especially the earlier novels...we are reading them all the time while you wrote them what...10 years ago? In some respects some of us know the books better than you. :)

some of your fans know you much better than you know them by now ;)

That frog always cracks me up.

Lol, not even sure where to start......

....will say that I was at Adrian Paul's site and he was saying how he was interested in landing a roll after being involved with Dreamsongs, will throw that out there as my wild card.

Adrian Paul and I actually worked together once, long before the DREAMSONGS audiobook. Wonder if he remembers.

Back then, he had a great look for Renly... but of course that was twenty years ago.

It must be the BEAUTY AND THE BEAST episode I see on IMDB. Never noticed that.

I recall your citing Adrian Paul years back -- around CLASH's publication, I think -- as a choice for young Robert/Renly. Along with Kurtwood Smith as Tywin, Cary Elwes as Jaime, and Nicole Kidman as Cersei. Time and tides wait for no man (or woman) I suppose...
