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).
