GAME OF THRONES Star Jason Momoa Wants to Return For Season Two

The Conan The Barbarian actor has submitted some ideas to the fantasy drama in hopes of returning to HBO's Emmy nominated series which returns for it's sophomore season in early 2012.
Game of Thrones is an HBO adaptation of George R.R. Martin's epic fantasy novel series "A Song of Ice and Fire". Set in the Seven Kingdoms of Westeros, where summers span decades and winters can last a lifetime, Game of Thrones chronicles the violent dynastic struggles among the kingdom's seven noble families for control of the Iron Throne; as the series opens, additional threats from the snow and ice covered region north of Westeros and from the eastern continent across a narrow sea are simultaneously beginning to rise.
Jason Momoa is yearning to get back onto HBO's Game of Thrones despite his character Khal Drogo being killed off at the end of season one. The actor revealed he's only read the first novel of George R.R. Martin's series (which was adapted into season one) but that he's written some scenes and submitted them to HBO in hopes of being re-introduced into the series. "I loved him (Drogo). He was the best guy. And I loved watching him fall in love. Of all the characters, he was the least backstabbing. He didn’t say a lot, but his s*** got handled," said Momoa.
"There’s a possibility you’ll see me do him again, It’s a fantasy world, sweetheart. I wrote some scenes and they might try to use them. George (R.R. Martin) can only write so much. Something could happen. Drogo could have a twin. You never know!"
New cast additions for season two include Stephen Dillane (John Adams, King Arthur) as Stannis Baratheon and Carice van Houten (Repo Men) as Melisandre. More additions include Liam Cunningham (Camelot) as the onion knight Davos, Natalie Dormer (The Tudors) as Margaery Tyrell, Gwendoline Christie as the knight Brienne, Nonso Anozie as a merchant prince, Tom Wlaschiha as the assassin Jaqen H'gar, Roy Dotrice as a pyromancer, Michael McElhatton as Roose, Robert Pugh as Craster, Hannah Murray as Gilly, Oona Chaplin as Jeyne and Gemma Whelan as the axe wielding Yara Greyjoy.
