UFC champ Conor McGregor is reportedly joining the cast of HBO’s “Game of Thrones” though it’s not clear if it’ll be the currently in production seventh or the final eighth season.
Northern Irish newspaper The Sunday Life (via Collider) head from a source that “it has been agreed McGregor will appear in one of the remaining two seasons”. They say McGregor was headhunted by HBO and believe he would be a perfect fit for the show.
It’s unknown what role he’s reportedly eyed for. Here’s a cute bit of trivia – HBO films the series in and around Dublin, McGregor’s hometown. The first footage from the new season of ‘Thrones’ can be glimpsed in a 2017 show reel released by the network last week.
