Jason Momoa was cast in GoT because a fan site suggested him

Jason Momoa was cast in GoT because a fan site suggested him
The title to this thread is the dream situation of all wanky fansites, but it’s true. Game of Thrones showrunners were discussing the, let’s just say unusual, way they cast Jason Momoa when they were trying to find a Kal Drogo.
Here’s David Benioff explaining things at the Austin Film Festival: “It was really hard to find a good Khal Drogo… We had all these auditions and no one was quite right. And then we’re looking at some website that had “Fan Casting of Game of Thrones.”
Yep. “A lot of it was kinda knuckle-headed, but some of it was really smart. And there was one person, or maybe a few people, who said, “Oh, it should be this guy Jason Momoa…” We’d never heard of Jason before. And I apologise to the Baywatch fans, but I haven’t gotten around to it. But I saw a picture of him, we both did, and I thought, ‘Well, that really does look like Khal Drogo’.”
We’re never going to hear the end of this are we.
