I may have said something about a certain Game of Thrones casting notice for S6 possibly being a modified version of a certain character. Now we have more casting notices via Watchers, and I’m changing my mind.
I think the 60something fat nobleman in this casting notice is Wyman Manderly. I’m now abandoning my previous idea of another distinguished old man being a slimmer Manderly. Nah, we’re not getting a not-fat Manderly, we’re getting the real McCoy in all his too-fat-to-sit-a-horse glory. Maybe he’ll even serve up some pie. He and Davos will be awesome together.
The younger guy could be anyone. Sue says he looks like a good candidate for Lord Cerwyn, and I suppose that’s possible, but he could be any one of a number of young Northern noblemen.
