UK Stars in US Shows (The Simpsons, Game of Thrones)

First of all a update on a previous story

Only last week I reported on Benedict Cumberbatch's upcoming cameo in the new series of 'The Simpsons'. Well further details have now emerged and it has been confirmed by TVLine that he will play a "snake-like character" and also the British Prime Minister in the episode 'Love is a Many Splintered thing'.

It has now also been reported by Entertainment Weekly that British stars MacKenzie Crook (The Office) and Tara Fitzgerald (Waking the Dead) will appear in the forthcoming series of 'Game of Thrones'.

MacKenzie has been linked to the role of Vargo Goat, a sadistic mercenary who frequently tortures his victims and speaks with a lisp due to his swollen tongue. Whilst Tara has been linked to the role of Florent who in the original novels  worships the god R'hllor and is a supporter of Melisandre.

Other guest roles for season 3 of 'Game of Thrones' previously announced include Clive Russell as Brynden Tully and Kerry Ingram as Shireen Baratheon.

Who are you most looking forward to seeing appear in the upcoming season?

Tara Fitzgerald

Vargo Hoat. There is no character named Vargo Goat.

I am not looking forward to seeing Tara Fitzgerald. She can't act and is extremely unpleasant. I wonder what she will say or do in Northern Ireland to annoy the locals this time? When filming Brassed Off she pissed of the Yorkshire folk by insulting them and their country.
