Roose Bolton cast in GAME OF THRONES

Irish actor Michael McElhatton has been confirmed by George as playing the iconic Roose Bolton, Lord of the Dreadfort. Though not well known here across the pond, McElhatton is a veteran of British stage and screen, and has starred in numerous indie dramas and comedies, and from what I’ve seen scouring You Tube, he’s exceptional.

Looks great. He’s certainly got his work cut out for him. Can’t wait to see who’s cast as his bastard son. That’ll be a tough role to fill.
