Those of you who have been reading on in GAME OF THRONES may be excited to hear that the role of Prince Oberyn Martell also known as "The Red Viper" has been cast for season four of the series.

Which lucky actor got this role? Pedro Pascal. You may have seen him in GRACELAND, THE GOOD WIFE or THE ADJUSTMENT BUREAU.

Here's a spoiler-free description of Martell:

Oberyn is a brash, charming, cunning prince of Dorne (part of the Seven Kingdoms of Westeros). His sister Elia was brutally murdered by the Lannister knight Gregor The Mountain Clegane when Mad King Aerys was overthrown by Robert Baratheon and the Lannisters. In season four, Oberyn comes to Kings Landing with revenge on his mind.

We definitely need someone else on the side of kicking some Lannister ass except Tyrion who I have a soft spot for. He may be a Lannister but he's the sanest of the group not to mention at times too wise for his own good. "It's not easy being drunk all the time. Everyone would do it, if it were easy."

Showrunners David Benioff and Dan Weiss said this about the casting of Red Viper, This was a tough one. The Red Viper is sexy and charming, yet believably dangerous; intensely likable, yet driven by hate. The boys love him, the girls love him, and he loves them all back. Unless your last name is Lannister. We found a fellow who can handle the job description and make it seem effortless. He wasnt easy to find and he wont be easy to stop.

Extra Tidbit: Maisie Williams who plays Arya Stark on GoT shared her prep for season four on Vine.

Can't wait! They best be getting the actor that played The Mountain in season 1 back. Whoever played him later on in that brief appearance at Harrenhall did NOT fit.....

Also, Soloist, you are such a daily does of entertainment for me. Don't ever change....

Finally some Dornish people. Looks like their going for the Spanish look. I've always wondered how Dornish people would be portrayed in the show....I always thought they would be more Egyptian looking.

I don't know what it is, but I just can't get into this show. It's definitely a good show, it's just that I can't get excited about it as I do for Sons of Anarchy, Justified, or Mad Men.

I love how I get negatives, even though I said the show was good. It's not like I said it sucks.
