Do you shit gold?

According to this, this guy Image is going to play Tyrion Lannister in HBO's Song of Ice & Fire.

Thoughts?

Personally even though I know there's no chance of coming close to the books coolness, I happen to really dig HBO shows - well some of them anyway - and the thought of them making this series into a show makes me happy in the pants.

This guy, further uglafied and be-hunched or deformatised(tm) might actually be sweet. Then again, he is still a dwarf.

He dun good in The Station Agent and although typecast as 'the dwarf' in Death at a Funeral, everyone in that movie was playing within rigid role definitions. And he was funny.

Haven't read Fire and Ice, but everyone on Penny Arcade says good things. Fjear the adaption.

i still havent read the last one. I was going to re-read the 2nd and 3rd before reading it as i cant hardly remember shit of the plot as it'd been so long ago, but have never found time to get around to it(aka reading other shit)

I figure i'll just wait till the next one then read again from book 1.

I have not read the books.

But that 14 minute trailer looked badass. Something I will watch for sure.

You really should read the book, that trailer does an ass load of justice to them which is kind of amazing. I think having the author, GRRM himself on board will make a big difference to the overall quality.

Big big fan of HBO shows among others - Deadwood, Carnivale, The Wire, Entourage.

That trailer looks pretty awesome - Wonder what their funding is per show.

Well I just watched the first episode, and it was bloody awesome thx. Best thing about it was it channeled the book. Really really well done so far. Hell, there were bits I had forgotten already. Cant wait to see how this continues.

Also, that dude was great as Kal Drogo - the dude who also happens to be playing Conan in the new Conan movie later in the year - gives me some confidence, at least he looks badass.
