Michiel Huisman Cast in Top Secret 'Game of Thrones' Role


Michiel Huisman


This is a saucy little nugget: Michiel Huisman has been cast in the upcoming season of 'Game of Thrones'... in a role that is being kept top secret. This is especially hard to do, considering that the HBO series is a very faithful adaptation of the novels by George R. R. Martin--naturally, anyone who has read the books will be able to venture a guess as to just who Huisman may be playing. 

Huisman is a star of 'Nashville,' best known as Liam McGuinnis from that series. This Dutch actor has also starred in a number of series in his home of Netherlands, and appeared in the American series 'Treme.' Huisman also recently appeared in the feature film 'World War Z' and will be appearing in the upcoming feature 'American Dream' opposite Nick Stahl. Huisman is also an accomplished musician, having released a solo album back in 2005. The lyrics are in Dutch, however, so be prepared to be a tad confused should you track it down. 

The new season of 'Game of Thrones' is said to mostly be based on the latter half of the third 'A Song of Ice and Fire' books titled 'A Storm of Swords.' One guess as to whom Huisman will portray has been Euron Greyjoy, although fans will note that it seems too early in the story for that particular character's introduction. Also, some may claim Huisman is too young. 

Who do you think Huisman will be playing on 'Game of Thrones'?

He might be either young Griff or Victarion Greyjoy, athough it could be a little early to introduce those characters.

He's a singer and looks like Marillion to me.
