HOLLYWOOD – In a surprise move, Bruce Lee has been cast as Bruce Lee in Season 7 of the popular HBO series, Game of Thrones.
“I’ve always been a fan of the show and I’m very happy to become part of the Game of Thrones family,” said an exuberant Lee.
Lee confirmed he will play one of the White Walkers and the legendary martial artist accidentally let slip a couple of major spoilers.
I’ve read the script and there are so many great moments. I think the nunchuck fight with the giant is going to wow the audiences but it’s the scene when I kill a dragon with a one-inch punch that is really going to get the fans excited.
Bruce is not the only Hollywood star rumoured to be joining the White Walkers with John Wayne, Robert Mitchum and Warren Oates all circling roles but according to Lee, one actor is definitely bound for Westeros.
I did a table reading with Charlton Heston and he was fantastic, but he had a lot of arguments with the writers about whether his character should carry an AK47. They tried to explain to him there were no guns in Westeros but he was having none of it and they eventually relented so expect the battle scenes to be much shorter.
Game of Thrones season 7 is due in 2017.
