The Word: Jason Momoa has new post-’Game of Thrones’ gig
If you loved Jason Momoa as Khal Drogo, the hulking tribal king with a heart lightly dusted with gold on “Game of Thrones,” here’s some good news: He’s coming back to TV. We don’t know much about his character yet, but it’s a safe bet he’ll be hulking.
Jason will co-star in the Sundance Channel’s upcoming procedural drama “The Red Road,” about a sheriff who tries to keep his family together while dealing with the clashing communities he polices. According to Variety, “Conan the Barbarian” star Jason will play an ex-con who returns to town and causes trouble for the sheriff, presumably by hulking.
Jason’s former female co-stars are fighting their own battles — to keep their clothes on. Sorry, “Game of Thrones” fans, if 10 billion nude scenes weren’t enough for you, there may be fewer in the future.
At least one “Game of Thrones” star has had enough of baring her breasts, according to the New York Post.
“One of the girls in the show who got her [dress] off the most in the first couple of seasons now doesn’t at all,” GoT star Oona Chaplin, who plays Talisa Maegyr, told reporters. “She said, ‘I want to be known for my acting, not for my breasts.’ ”
