The post-'Game of Thrones' box-office sweepstakes officially kicked off this past weekend with... a resounding thud. After the success of the HBO fantasy drama based on the George R.R. Martin book series, it's not too surprising that the ensemble cast might set their sights on box-office glory. First up! Jason Momoa -- who played the ferocious Khal Drago in 'Thrones' -- attempted to reboot the long-dormant 'Conan the Barbarian' franchise. And, well, as pointed out here, 'Conan' now owns the 23rd worst opening of all time (when opening in over 3000 screens). So! What do the other residents of Westeros have planed?
Sean Bean (Eddard Stark)
Bean's Stark served as loyal Hand of the King and was thisclose to becoming king after Robert Baratheon's death, but, alas, that just wasn't meant to be -- to say the least. But don't feel bad for Mr. Bean (you can still feel really, really bad for Mr. Stark), he will indeed get his chance to play the king in one of the
Peter Dinklage (Tyrion Lannister)
It's not like Dinklage has been suffering for roles over the last few year, but 'Thrones' certainly elevates the actor to another level -- certainly no one was thinking of the guy as an action star a year ago. Next for Dinklage: Watch him play a medieval knight alongside Steve Zahn and Ryan Kwanten in the live-action-role-playing comedy, 'Knights of Badassdom.'
Nikolaj Coster-Waldau (Jaime Lannister)
If I'm Coster-Waldau's agent, I'm avoiding any and all scripts that would even suggest of an incestual brother/sister relationship or the attempted murder of children. Coster-Waldau will be a presence at this year's Toronto International Film Festival, co-starring in 'Headhunters' -- a movie about headhunters and art theft. Which, in comparison, really isn't at all as dastardly as the actions of Ser Jaime.
Lena Headey (Cersei Lannister)
The actress who plays the love of Jaime Lannister's life (and sister) will co-star alongside Karl Urban and Olivia Thirlby in 2012's we-promise-it-doesn't-star-Rob-Schneider Judge Dredd film, 'Dredd.' Though, with its September release date, you'll see another full season of 'Thrones' before we find out if this version of Judge Dredd can subdue the 16-year-old stench that we can still smell from Sylvester Stallone's version.
Jason Momoa (Khal Drogo)
Kit Harington (Jon Snow)
Harington is now best known for being a bastard. And not in the "you took the last parking spot, you bastard,' sort of way. Harington, as the bastard son of Ned Stark, did a fairly great job of separating himself from his almost lookalike half brothers during 'Thrones' first season. Harington will make his big-screen debut in 'Silent Hill: Revelation 3D' -- next year's sequel to 2006's horror hit, 'Silent Hill.'
Richard Madden (Robb Stark)
The new Lord of Winterfell can next be seen the adaptation of Sebastian Faulk's (mostly) World War I era 'Birdsong.' Madden plays Captain Weir, a good friend of the main protagonist, Stephen (Eddie Redmayne). Long in the works as a feature film that had Daniel Radcliffe attached to star, Faulk's 1993 novel is being filmed as a BBC series.
Isaac Hempstead-Wright (Bran Stark)
Speaking of World War I: Hempstead-Wright co-stars later this year alongside breakout star from 'The Town,' Rebecca Hall, in the post-WWI period piece about children ghosts, 'The Awakening.'
Brian Kirk (Director)
It's not just the actors who are getting in on the big-screen fun. Kirk -- who directed three episodes of 'Thrones' -- is not only currently in talks to take over directing duties from Kenneth Branagh in 2013's 'Thor 2,' Variety is also reporting that he might be also helming Tom Cruise in 'Paper Wings.'
