Oh, "Game Of Thrones," you do make a man happy. The casting for season two of HBO's wildly successful adaptation of George R.R. Martin's series of novels continues to churn on, with new names and faces coming every couple of weeks. I couldn't be happier, overall. I love that, for the most part, it's mostly unknowns or less-well-knowns. Hell, Sean Bean was the most well-known actor cast to date, and he fucking died in the first season. Yet they continue to manage to find solid talent for less money, meaning they can focus on writing, production, and everything else that makes the show the fucking balls.

First, the older news, which is still freakin' awesome: Neil Marshall, director of The Descent and Dog Soldiers, will be directing one of the episodes. Hell yes.

Next, some casting news, some of which is new, some of which is simply new since the last time we updated you. Many of these aren't huge announcements, but they still make for good discussion.

Also, this is unconfirmed but there are reports that Ser Gregor "The Mountain That Rides" Clegane has been recast. Conan Stevens filled the very large shoes in Season One, but rumors abound that Ian Whyte will take over the role going forward. Worry not, Whyte is still a big son of a bitch at 7'1", though he lacks the same sense of menace that Stevens seemed the have.
