This Guy Is Conan the Barbarian


?The first time I heard of Jason Momoa was… oh, about five minutes ago, when I read on /Film that he had been cast as Conan in the Conan reboot. I’m sure a few of you know him as Ronon Dex from Stargate: Atlantis, so maybe you can tell us in the comments if you think he’s any good or not. I’m not trying to be a jerk, it’s just that his other show was Baywatch and that doesn’t fill me with a lot of hope. On the plus side, I happen to agree with /Film that at least Momoa looks clever, so in least in that regard he’s closer to the spirit of Robert Howard’s original Conan stories that Schwarzenegger was.
