Yesterday was certainly a day full of Conan news. First we had a wake of sorts as our favorite Irish late night talk show host got the shaft from NBC and recording his last episode of The Tonight Show. Next we have a rebirth of the Conan movie franchise with Jason Momoa (best known for his role as Ronan Dex on Stargate Atlantis) being cast as Conan the Barbarian.
According to Deadline Hollywood, the studios in power approved of Momoa taking over the iconic Robert E Howard character of Conan. Momoa certainly has the physic for the role and he is getting plenty of sword practice in his unrelated role for HBO’s Game of Thrones.
I like this fit for the new movies. Jason is a good actor, definitely better than our previous actor the Govenator, and he is a good man so I wish him the best on this role.
