Jason Momoa Speaks on Conan the Barbarian, Sequel

by at . Comments

Game of Thrones viewers know him as Khal Drogo.

But movie goers will soon associate Jason Momoa with the iconic role of Conan the Barbarian, as he takes on this character in a 3D August 19 release.

The actor, who has already penned a screenplay for a Conan sequel, spoke with our friends at Movie Fanatic about the film.

"This Conan project wasn’t something that I was actively looking for - circumstance led me to it. Actually, I got Conan because of Game Of Thrones. With Game Of Thrones, that was something I loved, from the script to the source material, and I had to have that role. Once I got that, I was more than happy. Then the opportunity to audition for Conan came about, and I couldn’t pass that up."
