Game of Thrones is an upcoming American medieval fantasy television series created by David Benioff and Dan Weiss for HBO. The series, based on author George R. R. Martin's best-selling A Song of Ice and Fire series of novels, chronicles the violent dynastic struggles among noble families for control of the Iron Throne of Westeros.[1] HBO programming chief Michael Lombardo has stated that the series will likely debut in Spring 2011

Starring

SEAN BEAN as Eddard Stark (on the left, duh)

Head of House Stark and Lord of Winterfell and the North.

MARK ADDEY as King Robert Baratheon

LENA HEADY as Queen Cersei

NIKOLAJ COSTER-WALDAU as Ser Jaime Lannister the Queen's twin brother and a member of Robert's Kingsguard

gameofthronestyrion360.jpg

PETER DINKLAGE as Tyrion Lannister, their younger dwarf brother. (in the midget sense, not the Tolkein sense)

gameofthronesdaenerysta.jpg

EMILIA CLARKE as Daenerys Targaryen, along with her older brother Viserys they are the last surviving members of the Targaryen line. Eddard and Robert led the rebellion that overthrew their father, Mad King Aerys.


There's a bunch more major characters but these were the best pics. Eddard's wife Catelyn, and their kids are all also major players, really there's too many characters to list.

Here are some promo trailers
The newest most awesome trailer

    I'd like to state for the record that I made my thread first and that I didn't make it until the previous thread, which was also mine, got locked.

    But you have the superior OP. :(

    I was thinking of asking for a good book for Christmas that will be actually entertaining.

    But you will be pissed at the end because the writer hasn't finished anything and it doesn't look like he will for a long time.

    Well there's one that I know 100% would get you to watch it but it's from the 3rd book and is kind of a semi-big spoiler.

    Let me see if I can think of another that would be less drastic, but I'll use that one if I need to.

    Me too! I have all the others with the (in my opinion) nicer British cover designs; but I do have an abiding fondness for my worn copy of AGoT with that cover. I bought it second hand about two or three years ago, and I must have read it ten times since then. The pages turn so easily and flip open to my favourite parts with little or no effort.

    Dating is like playing Snake, you keep accumulating emotional baggage that trails after you and it never goes away and sooner or later you just plough head first into it and die

    all the kids were made a few years older.

    Robb, Jon, and Dany are all in the 17 range now rather than ~14

    the younger kids were aged up similarly

    Some quotes:

    There are no men like me. There's only me.

    Rhaegar fought valiantly, Rhaegar fought nobly, Rhaegar fought honorably. And Rhaegar died.

    Those are brave men. Let's go kill them.

    In his chainmail shirt with a sword in his hand, Gendry looked almost a man grown, and dangerous. Hot Pie looked like Hot Pie.
