‘Game Of Thrones’ News & Update: Top 5 Most Voted Person; Likely To Be Seen This Upcoming Season 7
Early this week, rumors spread that UFC fighter Conor McGregor will join the cast of HBO's "Game of Thrones." While many outlets reported on the rumor after it originated in the Belfast Telegraph's Sunday Life section, it was attributed to an anonymous source.
A day after the first rumor spread that Conor "The Notorious" McGregor would play a pirate traveling with Euron Greyjoy on a ship famously crewed by mutes, so the fighter would have no lines to memorize. True or not, the rumor got us thinking about a few of our dream cast members for the fantasy hit, which has just two seasons remaining. Here are the Top 6 celebrities who people hoped to be seen this coming "Game of Thrones" Season 7:
Maggie Smith lit up every "Downton Abbey" scene she was in with her sharp wit, and she'd fit right in palling around with Dame Diana Rigg as Olenna Tyrell.
Arnold Schwarzenegger, bring in The Governor and let him do the fighting scene. Sure, he's almost 70, but we still like his odds. Meanwhile, british actor Benedict Cumberbatch is the kind of actor who can make us believe in him as detective Sherlock Holmes, code breaker Alan Turing, the Star Trek terrorist Khan and most recently, Marvel's superhero sorcerer Doctor Strange. Angela Lansbury, 90-year-old screen veteran Angela Lansbury, who's best known as author and detective Jessica Fletcher in the hit TV series "Murder, She Wrote," was rumored to be cast in the new season of "Game of Thrones."
Ewan McGregor isn't the only McGregor who'd be a perfect casting choice for "Game of Thrones." Ewan McGregor already has significant experience wielding a sword of sorts thanks to his role as Jedi Master Obi-Wan Kenobi in the Star Wars prequels: "The Phantom Menace," "Attack of the Clones" and "Revenge of the Sith."
