If playing Mr. Eko on Lost, Heavy Duty in G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra and Kurse in Thor: The Dark World was not enough to solidify actor Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje's place in geek culture… he has now signed on to play Malko on the HBO hit series Game of Thrones.
And if you don't read the books, don't feel you are being left out on this one. Malko is not from the novels, he's an original creation for the series. Which means we have no idea what his role will be, who he will be tied to or anything.
This is also a chance for him to reunite with his Pompeii co-star Kit Harington who plays the 'know-nothing' Jon Snow.
