Actors will be lining up to sit on the 'Throne' (Nels Israelson/HBO)Can't wait for more "Game of Thrones" after that killer season finale? Neither can we. And while Season 2 is still a ways off, juicy casting details have trickled out.
First, it was announced that Natalie Dormer, formerly of "The Tudors," would be popping up in Westeros as Margaery Tyrell, whose hand in marriage becomes a prize in the ongoing game of thrones. And then rumors began to spread that one-time "Doctor Who" Christopher Eccleston was poised to join the program as well. While the specific role he's up for hasn't been confirmed, it's been widely speculated that he'd play Stannis Baratheon, the elder of dead King Robert's younger brothers and a major player in the second book, "A Clash of Kings."
These pieces of casting news made us reach for our tattered copy of "Clash" in search of other new characters that will likely be introduced on HBO. Here are some of the people you may meet when the show returns and who we think should play them.
