    Peter Capaldi is a reasonably high-profile actor (though moreso in the UK than the US). I doubt he'd do a role with one scene in Season 2, then maybe a couple more in Season 5, then he might be back in Season 8 (assuming ADWD and ASoS are two seasons each) to do a couple more. In fact, it's more likely they'll drop Aeron altogether from Season 2 and only introduce him in Season 5 when he has more to do.

    That's why I suggested him for Daxos (aka that guy who looks after Dany in Qarth, keeps trying to get her dragons and eventually tells her to get stuffed when he can't get them). He has a lot more screentime in Season 2 and:

    Mild ADWD spoiler
    Spoiler:
    According to a preview chapter, he crops up again in ADWD.

    I think the series could use a dose of Viggo Mortenson.

    I think he would be a good choice for Stannis, but would make an excellent Jaqen H'Ghar too.

    Some actors I would like to seen thrown into the mix:

    Titus Welliver as Stannis (No way is Mark Strong gonna happen.)

    Sting as Roose Bolton: He has that calculating look and was downright intimidating in Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels. He actually would have made a half decent Tywin Lannister.

    Alan Cumming as Jaqen: Fat chance, but would be nice. Was my first choice for Littlefinger. If not, Michael Sheen would be good.

    Tricia Helfer for Melisandre: obviously.

    Tony Curran as Davos.

    I would love to see a bearded Vinnie Jones pop up in some kind of small role!

    That would be a great look for Craster, but when I see him I'm still thinking Grima Wormtongue. And, for some reason, Grima is saying, "It is by will alone I set my mind in motion. It is by the juice of Sapho that thoughts acquire speed, the lips acquire stains, stains become a warning. It is by will alone I set my mind in motion."

    *Herbert fans are going to kill me, but I kinda liked that movie

    Natalie Dormer is Margaery Tyrell (OFFICIAL)

    Natalie Dormer (who played Anne Boelyn on The Tudors) has been officially cast as Margaery Tyrell!

    And before people start complaining that she's too old (29)... it really doesn't matter in any way whatsoever. She'll be excellent!

    Yeah, she was one of the best things about the Tudors.

    Speaking Tudors, I wonder is Jeremy Northam available for a role? He was amazing as Sir Thomas More. He should be: he's A Man for All Seasons and Winter is Coming.

    Sorry, had to be said.

    He's perfect for casting speculation - not too famous to be unrealistic, but with enough great roles that he could fit most any challenging role.

    Unlike most of the other suggestions so far - I don't know who 90% of these people are!

    I haven't seen Tricia Helfer in anything (gotta get on that BSG deal though...) however my fiancee HATES her. Says she's very wooden.

    I don't like this Eva person for Brienne either. I would hope that if anyone would have the guts to actually cast an ugly woman in an ugly role it would be HBO. So I'm hoping for a horrid-looking unknown.

    I like Cicero as Roose but I picture someone skinnier. Maybe James Frain? He likes being a creep. While I'm on Cape alumni when we start needing Dornish women it would nice if Summer Glau could be on a show that's not getting canceled right away.

    Do you guys have any ideas for Strong Belwas? That's a pretty hot ticket role right there.

    Vinnie Jones would make a good Rattleshirt.

    We need brilliant kids to play the Reed siblings!

    In case anyone missed my post above, Margaery Tyrell has been cast.

    So that leaves Stannis, Davos, Melisandre, Brienne, Asha Greyjoy, Craster, Qhorin Halfhand, and probably a bunch more I'm forgetting.

    Aside from crotchety Craster I am very interested in Davos's casting. I always enjoy him. And Brienne - one of my most favourite characters in the series.

    I don't mind if the look is not completely there as long as they got the chops to pull off the heart of the character. I was perhaps most thrown by Jon Snow - he was far off my mental image but man I love that cat.

    I am off topic. Apologies. Please continue.
