A lot of people have been talking about how huge Jason Momoa got to play Conan the Barbarian (August 19, 2011 release date.) Jason trained for 5 months ahead of shooting “Conan” and added about 10lbs of of muscle (according to the actor) to his 6ft 5in frame – weighing in at an estimated 215lbs. If you are curious about Jason Momoa’s workout and diet (plus what he did to actually get 30lbs bigger for his role as Khal Drogo HBO’s “Game of Thrones”). More on his Video from sky atlantic sky.com here in the link!
Everybody who watched Dothraki leader Khal Drogo in Game of Thrones was curious as to who played the Dothraki warlord. Lo and behold, it was Jason Momoa, a familiar face of baywatch.
He indicates that at the audition, he performed a haka war-dance as part of his audition, he said, and then apparently showed off his backside to the audience in preparation for further nudity in the pilot, which would mark both his first nude scene and his first sex scene as an actor. He also apparently mentioned disliking horses, and not really looking forward to the riding scene the pilot requires (much less the rest of the riding scenes that will be required if the show goes forward).
