Finally, 'Game Of Thrones' Casts A "Mountain" That Lives Up To The Name
As we mentioned a few weeks back, Game Of Thrones is not too shy about recasting characters. And the character of Gregor Clegane has been recast not once, but twice now. I’m not at all bothered for two reasons. 1) The new actor’s name is amazing. Hafþór Júlíus Björnsson?!? He sounds like an armored bear. 2) They finally found an actor who lives up to the name “Mountain.” Not that Conan Stevens (Season 1) and Ian Whyte (Season 2) were tiny. But this man. Jaysus. Clegane has much Martell-related business to do in this upcoming season, so I’m glad to see they upgraded.
