With Season-Five Pickup a 'Formality,' 'Game of Thrones' Tweaks Its Lineup Deadline

“Games of Thrones” hasn't been picked up yet for a fifth season, “but that is simply a formality,” reports Nellie Andreeva at Deadline.com. With that in mind, the HBO drama series has tweaked its lineup for the season five, promoting Michiel Huisman to series regular.

Huisman replaced Ed Skrein in the role of Daario Naharis, a love interest for Daenerys who was introduced in season three, the story notes. The character is recurring in the upcoming fourth season.

Huisman has co-starred in HBO’s “Treme” and has recurred on ABC’s “Nashville.”
