game of thrones casts Pedro pascal

Pedro Pascal is joining the cast of “Game of Thrones” as the Red Viper.

According to Entertainment Weekly, Pedro Pascal will play Prince Oberyn Martell aka The Red Viper in the upcoming season of “Game of Thrones.”

According to the books, the Red Viper comes to Kings Landing to seek revenge for the death of his sister who was murdered by the Hound’s brother Ser Gregor Clegane, while under the Lnnisters’ control during the Mad King’s overthrow.

“This was a tough one,” say showrunners David Benioff and Dan Weiss said to EW. “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 wasn’t easy to find and he won’t be easy to stop.”

Pascal currently stars on “Graceland.”

“Game of Thrones” returns in 2014.
