Casting a Thorne and a Dead Man

George RR Martin has puzzled us again, and this time the boards have been slower to figure out his answers.  Still the people at Winter-Is-Coming have come up with some names, and two roles have been confirmed by the tricksy Mr. Martin

DEREK HALLIGAN will play Ser Allister Thorne, master-at-arms for Castle Black. 

JOHN STANDING. will play Jon Arryn.  Our good lord is dead at the beginning of the books, but flashback make him a necessary part of the story.  This casting answers many question.  I wonder if this means we will need a Rhaegar and Lyanna? 


Jeor Mormont is JAME COSMO.  Really, that’s all that needs to be said.  This guy is gold.
