Daily Blind Item — Game of Thrones Clone


With the biggest show on television, Game of Thrones, ending early next year, there is going to be a huge gap in the market for epic fantasy and although many have attempted to capture the Thrones market in recent years, an industry expert tells us that it will be a much easier task when the show is actually off the air.

Well, one project is in the pre-production stage and has an advantage because they’re already got one of the Game of Thrones leads to star for a big, big payday.

‘It’s undignified of the actor,’ a source tells us. ‘It looks cheap and usually when an actor finishes a big run on a show or in a franchise, they don’t attempt to cash in on said brand by starring in a rip off.’

Apparently not our money-loving thespian.

So, tell me, Gossipers:

Who is our actor?

  1. It’s clearly the smartest cast member. It’s not as if the ensemble is full of great actors that are going to be earning the big bucks for years. Get that money while you can!


  2. We need to break this down because it seems hard but it really isn’t. Season 8 reportedly has 19 main cast members and with the exception of 1 (Missandei) they’ve been with the show since Season 2. I can break that down further by saying Kit Harrington, Lena Headey, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, Emilia Clarke, Sophie Turner, Maisie Williams and Peter Dinklage are the only ones that I would call leads; the rest get main billing but are only supporting. Out of those options, who seems the most likely to cash in on the success?


  3. After Mad Men finished, Jon Hamm said that he kept receiving scripts set in the 60’s where he would play an adman. He turned them all down.


  4. Solid analysis on the Game of Thrones audience opening up (definitely think your industry expert is petty producer). I know Amazon has their Lord of the Rings series coming and Netflix has The Witcher, but keep watching the BBC for the His Dark Materials series. That seems so relevant in the current political climate and could definitely resonate with a lot of people.


  5. I think money-loving is the tip here, along with undignified. Lannisters love money and the undignified one was Lena Headey – shame, shame, shame. Plus she’s got an ex husband and a new bastard baby to support.


    • I see both sides. On one side it definitely is disrespectful to exploit your show’s fanbase like that. On the other side, bitch better have my money? 😉
