Downloading torrents is illegal, watching streams is not.

For those of you who didn't like Ed Skrein as the sellsword Daario Naharis, then there's a bit of good news the role of Daario has been recast for season four, with Dutch actor Michiel Huisman (Treme) taking the role. [Winter is Coming]

Gregor Clegane, aka the Mountain, has been recast, for a second time. This horse-killing character was played by Conan Stevens in season one and Ian Whyte in season two, and then he wasn't in season three. For season four, he's getting more to do — and he'll be played this time by Thor Bjornsson, who was named the strongest man in Iceland two years in a row. This will be Bjornsson's first acting role, other than playing himself in the televised World's Strongest Man competition. [Wetpaint]

In other casting news, season four is adding Elizabeth Webster as Walda Frey, granddaughter of Lord Walder and the lucky bride of Lord Roose Bolton. And Lu Corfield (The Doctors) is playing the madame of Mole's Town, home of the brothel near the Wall where the Night's Watch sneak off for illicit fun.

Finally, there's a rumor that Locke (Noah Taylor) will be back this season — and that he'll be taking the black as a member of the Night's Watch, possibly in punishment for his rashness in slicing off Jaime Lannister's hand. That could get interesting. [Winter is Coming]

They have nailed every role so I wont question it. Im sure they made sure he could pull it off. But the first guy was just perfect. Not that he actually had to....act. Off the top of my head I think "Sword!" is all he ever said. But he looked the part. He would have been crazy in the fight to come.....

The guy in season 2 didn't really look that good. He was tall but too thin.

Agreed. This new guy looks perfect for the role. 6 foot 9 inches, 419 pounds? HOLY SHIT.

holy shit, that guy in armor, I can understand why everyone is shitting themselves in the name of the mountain now.

Arya should have told Jaquen to kill Mountain! She wasted those kills like a noob! 3 faceless man assassinations is more then the Lannisters could afford, and she wasted them on nobodies!

I thought he was good as Daario... Though he and Dany didn't seem to have that much chemistry.

I actually wanted the guy whi played the Titan's Bastard to be Daario, but let's see what this actor brings.

I dislike Daario being recast, but we needed new Mountain. That S2 guy was totally off...

S1 Mountain nailed the role tho, he looked really intimidating.

I'm ok with Daario being recast. I wasn't crazy about the casting when we first met him. Turns out he was ok, but he was just nothing how I read him. He was too traditionally handsome. Too big. And not really the slimy fast talker I had expected when I read it.
Reading it, I was expecting something closer to Johnny Depp in Pirates of the Caribean. Fast talking. But a little more crass than the PG13 version Depp plays. Good looking in a grungy kind of way. And mostly a bad ass with his swords, not someone as physically imposing as the Daario they had cast.

Like a lot of people, I thought the Titan's bastard was Daario when he appeared on screen. He was bigger than I read, but that was closer to what I expected in personality.

That guy they cast I sort of like as the strung out street musician in Treme'. He feels more like what I expected in terms of scruffiness, and felt like he can pull off the fast talking, based mostly on his role as a drug addled street musician. He seems a little scrawny compared to what I expected, but he can put on weight, and be dressed into it, or it's possible he was dressed and carrying himself skinny in the other role.

Being only a watcher of the show, I'm happy that Daario is being recast. Since I haven't read the books, I don't really have a visual of what he is "supposed to" look like but I couldn't stand the annoying performance and overall look of the Daario in season 3.
