Jason Momoa Confirmed in HBO’s A Game of Thrones
October 17, 2009 by Jay Tomio
Earlier today I was manning my twitter station and saw Winter is Coming pointing to a report by a con goer attending Armageddon Expo who said that they heard actor Jason Momoa state that he would be taking on the role of Drogo in the HBO adaptation of George R.R. Martin’s A Game of Thrones. Being a fan of the series and knowing how much people like confirmation when it comes to projects that they love, I checked up on this and can now report that HBO has confirmed to me that this report (and Momoa’s statements) were both the truth (not that we had any reason to doubt!) and official.

The 'Games' afoot: HBO's 'Game of Thrones' gears up
UPDATE 2 Oct. 17: HBO has confirmed the casting of Momoa as Khal Drogo.
UPDATE 3 Oct. 17: I just want to give full credit for the breaking of the Momoa story to ABitLikeTrying on Twitter, who tweeted the news about his casting from a convention Oct. 16. She also noted that Momoa will have a nude scene and said that the actor has hired a trainer to see about bulking up for the role.
