Josh Whitehouse is a household name over in the U.K., where he stars in the wildly popular, extremely horny period drama Poldark. Now, he’s set to become every bit as recognizable stateside, as he’s just been cast alongside Naomi Watts in another horny series: HBO’s Game Of Thrones prequel. Set thousands of years before the events of the original series, the story is set during the transition between the Age Of Heroes and a period of darkness called The Long Night.

There’s no details as to who Whitehouse could be playing as of yet, but there’s been ample chatter about both the founders of House Stark and House Lannister featuring as major characters. Just look at that guy: He’s definitely a forefather of Lancel.
