I was wondering who the new guy was.
 
2014-04-08 12:59:00 PM  
Horsefeathers. Sonny quit doing heroin and now he's headed for Westeros. Just wait until he breaks out his electric piano.
 
2014-04-08 01:00:00 PM  
Yeah, I had no idea until after the next morning, after I'd read some comments on the show, that it was even supposed to be the same guy. I just spent a moment wondering what happened to the Fabio dude and then assumed that this new guy had killed him or something.
 
2014-04-08 01:15:24 PM  
Doesn't matter. Both are wrong. No blue tri-forked beard with over the top ostentatious clothing.

I am neither a woman nor a gay man, but I think the new Daario is more attractive than the old one.

The new one has presence and a bit of sophistication.  The old one looked like a young shaved Eddie Vedder - more punk kid than someone a queen would conceivably be interested in.

Original Daario had way more swagger than the new Daario. New Daario lacks the bravado required.

Who cares, Jorah Mormont is way farking hotter.

I read that old Daario left to go film a Transporter prequel.

Brilliant career move, that.

Wife mentioned the dude was new, I don't remember what the other dude looked like.

I haven't read the books and keeping track of the characters is a full time job. I gave up and just watch for boobs, backstabbing, and bloodshed.
 
2014-04-08 01:48:01 PM  
Wait. These are probably the same women who constantly biatch about women being objectified, right?

Can totally understand why they'd want to swap actors, but at least make them look somewhat alike. Stick the new guy in a blond wig and shave his beard.

Can't say I really noticed at all.  The faces of minor characters tend to blend in after a while.

This. Didn't realize the guy had been replaced until I saw a few comments about it.
 
2014-04-08 02:02:38 PM  
I thought the old guy looked like a beefy Sebastian Bach.

The Hound is enough beefcake for me.
 
2014-04-08 02:08:30 PM  
I also didn't realize it was supposed to be the same character until reading about it the next day.  I like the change, the original character made me want to get all punchy on him.

Speaking of, they going to have some hot Tyrion on Penny sex scenes?

I always pictured Daario as an medieval ages greaser biker dude.  Instead of tats and a leather jacket he has a dyed beard and gilded vestments.  He's a bad boy who doesn't give a fark about anything and while clever doesn't think big picture at all.

He has NAKED LADY SWORD HILTS for chrissakes.  Which he fondles constantly.  That says everything you need to know about him.  A smirking, crass, dangerous, good looking asshole is what I expect.

Hopefully this new guy won't be portrayed too sweetly.  Daario Naharis doesn't care about that.  He's in it for the pussy.

I had to make sure Podrick was the same kid.  Apparently he's been hitting the weights and puberty.

Me neither, but I have to admit I can't visualize Strong Belwas as anything other than a cartoon.

Based on the last book, all they have to do is have her wander about telling people how stupid she is.

Can you really blame him?  A guaranteed payday now vs being a secondary character on a huge hit show for an unknown duration being paid substantially less.  Maybe sticking with Game of Thrones would have led to better things down the line, but turning down a leading role even for a second or third rate action series where there are sequel possibilities isn't an easy decision either. I can't blame him for doing what he thought was best for his career and his choice had no easy answer.

Honestly he didn't seem to be that great of an actor.  Daario has many more lines this season.  He was a very pretty face but maybe the producers thought he wasn't worth enticing to keep around.

Im guessing this is the dude who lives near Jay Thomas that has had Thomas pissed offed to no end.

I can't take credit for that joke. I stole it from the 'Hodor actor comes out of the closet' thread.

I disagree. I think the original actor was a much more attractive dude. If I could choose one of them to look like, it'd be him. The new one just looks too clean cut, pretty and perfect - like he spends more time on hair and makeup than his lady does. Original one had one of those faces which is even more handsome in its imperfections. I bet he just absolutely kills it with the ladies.

I noticed the switch right away... How could you not? But the whole totally different dude thing kind of threw me off for a second. I was seriously wondering if he was one of the face changing assassin guys and I had missed it last season.

The new guy not only has totally different hair color but also facial hair. They look absolutely nothing alike. Queen Dragonhotness asked where he was, and then they went to find him, and he was holding Daario's sickle sword thinger, so I knew it was him... It's like they didn't even try to get an actor whose looks would provide any kind of continuity at all... At least match the hair color and (lack of) facial hair! That was just lazy.

I remembered the blue beard, but I had forgotten his clothes. That's hideous, and would be both impractical in fantasy land and look garrish on television.  No wonder they changed it.

But a gig on a sitcom or drama is a bit different than a gig on an ensemble cast show with a tendency toward eliminating cast members.  Yes, there are books that are guiding the script, but the show producers have quite a bit of leeway in terms of the screen time or if a secondary character hangs around.  I will agree with you, that if this was Kit Harington or Nikolaj Coster-Waldau we were talking about, yes, it would be incredibly stupid to leave the show.  However we are talking about a secondary character who may have a bigger role this season but is ultimately expendable and certainly not making the money that a leading role is. In that case, the decision isn't a clear as you are making it.
 
2014-04-08 02:40:50 PM  
They could have at least gotten someone that looks kind of like the previous actor.
It's like if you had Ed Norton and then replaced him with Mark Ruffalo.

/Hai guyz, Whut's goin on in this thread????


The Dick York / Dick Sargent switcheroo messed me up but good as a kid.  For years I was convinced that dads just *poof* switched like that, and was terrified that I'd wake up and there would be a new dad instead of the old one in my house, and also that it very well could be Dick Sargent.

Luckily my mom never pulled the trigger on that scenario.
