How has this guy not been cast in GOT yet?

Me and the wife were talking about this a few days ago. Anything that has any kind of British overtone too it this actor is usually in it.

Maybe someone like Mace Tyrell or even better Randyll Tarly.

Edit: Looks like Mace Tyrell has been cast as has Oberyn Martell

"Kill Phillip and then go to the pub and wait for all this to blow over". He was also in hot fuzz.

Nighy is the man. He would've been a good Qyburn

Yep. I pretty much like him in every role he has, even as a vampire.

He'd make a pretty good Doran Martell maybe, of the characters yet to be cast in the series. Nighy is great though, would be pretty awesome in any role.

Was also one of the "Engineers" or "Designers" of Galaxies in Hitchhikers guide to the Galaxy. Took Arthur around the "construction".

Martells definitely have a Mediterranean look to them.

I'm sure there's a character Nighy could play though.

And if there's anyone Nighy should have played, it should have been Mance Rayder. It's still the person that pops into my head when thinking of the role.

True, though I don't recall and exact description of him being described that way, even though the Dornish mostly are Spanish or darker italian looking, some are lighter skinned.

But not like Mance looks anything like his book counterpart anyway, they haven't exactly been going by book descriptions.

And right as I post this.

Obviously I have no clue who/what characters still need to be cast, but I have this feeling that Ben Cross would fit in somewhere perfectly in the GoT world.

I think Bill Nighy would potentially make a good Randyl Tarly.

Nighy would definitely fit right in on GoT.
