Amazon’s The Dark Tower TV series has cast Game Of Thrones‘ Bronn actor, Jerome Flynn, in a cowboy role. We’ve got all the info you need right here, including a brief quote from the man himself…
The exact details of his character are yet to be revealed, but it’s nice to know that Flynn will still have a place on our screens when Game Of Thrones season 8 has wrapped up its run and ended that show for good.
As well as playing Bronn in Thrones, Flynn has also popped up in Black Mirror, Ripper Street and Loving Vincent in recent years. He also has a part in the upcoming John Wick: Chapter 3 movie. He’s never played a cowboy before, though, making this new role a source of excitement for the actor.
“I’ve always said I’d like to play a cowboy – and now one has come along. I’m excited for that,” Flynn is quoted as saying in The Mirror.
This Stephen King adaptation was originally pegged as a tie-in to the recent Dark Tower movie, which starred Idris Elba and Matthew McConaughey. We recently learned that plans have changed, though, with a new cast coming in: Sam Strike will take over from Elba as Roland Deschain, and Jasper Pääkkönen will replace McConaughey as The Man In Black.
We’ll be sure to keep you posted as we hear more about The Dark Tower TV series, which is destined for Amazon Prime Video.
