    I know his series is quite popular, and I know there are die hard HBO series fans, so I figured I'd see how many fans of either were interested.

    Excellent news - thanks for the update! HBO usually do a pretty good job with their dramas... let's hope this one's up to scratch.

    And also, let's hope GRRM doesn't do a David Gemmell and pass before his time (and before A Dance With Dragons and the rest of Ice & Fire gets committed to paper!)

    Sean Bean (LOTR/Sharpe) cast as Ned Stark and Mark Addy (A Knight's Tale) in negotiations to play King Robert I Baratheon.

    Never read the books, played the boardgame only... but Sean Bean and HBO - oh yes!

    HBO liked the pilot, 9 episode series based on Martin's first book due to air in January 2011! :D
