Sean Bean in George R.R. Martin’s A Game of Thrones
The HBO adaptation of George R.R. Martin’s A Game of Thrones adds another cast member, getting its Ned Stark in Sean Bean. Add this to the news we got in May of Peter Dinklage being cast in the film.
I’m not sure if he would be the first person to come to mind, but this cast offers an interesting balance of being a name but not an overwhelmingly obvious one that distracts people who have familiarity with the text. I think Bean pulled off being Boromir (with honestly not the best character material in that production–not the film itself, but how that character was implemented). I think he’s shown he can transition easily into period (in this case pseudo-period) films. The Boromir character I think in short screen time, pulled of quite well casting a character that had absolute ideals/loyalties conflict with what was ‘right’, and it’s dynamic that I think Ned Stark needs.
I kind of dig it. I wonder if he will be able to hook us to make the character have the impact necessary from Ned Stark’s action later in the series.
A Game of Thrones starts filming in October.
