Conor McGregor Possibly Cast In ‘Game of Thrones’

Conor McGregor has a lot of experience in UFC’s octagon, however he doesn’t have very many acting roles under his belt yet. However that may soon change with a part on HBO’s wildly popular series, Game of Thrones. TVLine reports, UFC President Dana White appears to have revealed McGregor’s acting gig during an appearance on Fox Sports Live. “I knew a few months ago they were interested in putting him in the show,” said White. “I’m glad he did it. It’ll be great.” It’s unclear if White meant to say that White has already filmed his role, or if it will be something that shoots at a later date. HBO declined to respond to TVLine’s inquiry about the report, but it’s been picked up by several additional outlets, some of which are offering possible details about McGregor’s role.
Watchers on the Wall reports that McGregor will appear on the series as a crew member of the Silence, one of the ships under the command of Euron Greyjoy. The ship was named “The Silence” because Euron cut out the tongue of everyone on it, which implies that UFC’s most famous trash talker probably won’t have any lines. That seems like a waste of his natural talents!

There is also a rumor that McGregor’s character will fight Gregor “The Mountain” Clegane, probably because of this video that McGregor filmed last
