Game of Thrones fans, prepare to geek out!
Pedro Pascal has been cast in the HBO hit series' most buzzed-about new role for its upcoming fourth season, the network confirms to E! News. Pascal, a Chilean actor who was most recently seen on USA Network's new series Graceland, will play Prince Oberyn Martell, who may have one of the coolest nicknames ever: The Red Viper.
Fans can expect the newbie to make quite the impression on many of the show's characters, as showrunners David Benioff and Dan Weiss tell EW.com, who first reported Pascal's casting, "The boys love him, the girls love him, and he loves them all back. Unless your last name is Lannister."
