If you don’t know the name, more than likely you know the face of Jason Momoa who plays Khal Drogo on Game of Thrones, one of the more captivating television series in recent memory. Momoa in turn this week made his first-ever appearance on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon and boy was he ever stoked to be there.

A noticeably excited Momoa then dished on how hard it was to initially get cast following his portrayal of Khal Drogo on Game of Thrones, insisting somewhat jokingly that many weren’t even aware that he spoke English. The holdout didn’t last long, however, as the 38-year-old actor eventually went on to be cast as Aquaman, as well as to star in Netflix’s Frontier.

To hear Jason speak on his post-GoT “struggles,” Frontier, his own stunts, and more, press play above.

In other TV news, a ‘Mighty Ducks’ television series is reportedly in the works.

Not NYC, not LA.
