Jason Momoa's audition for Game of Thrones

Posted on October 17, 2014 | Post a comment | Bookmark and Share

Jason Momoa’s so hot right now. This is slightly bewildering – after all, he started off pretty inauspiciously in his acting life on Baywatch Hawaii, before working his way over to the least interesting of all the Stargates, Stargate: Atlantis, and no one really came out of Stargate: Atlantis with their careers intact, although at least he escaped with his hair intact.

Since then, though, he's defied the odds and gone on to better things, including starring in Sundance’s Red Road and directing Road to Paloma, and he’s about to star as Aquaman in the forthcoming Aquaman. Nevertheless, he has become known for taking his top off a lot, to the extent that he didn’t really want to play the part of Drax in Guardians of the Galaxy, because it was essentially identical to his Stargate: Atlantis role.

And his role as Khal Drogo on Game of Thrones. Still, you have to admit that he was perfect for the role, as you can see from his audition tape, in which for reasons best known to him, he decided to do a Maori haka.
