Actor Aidan Gillen has signed on to play the scheming Littlefinger for the upcoming HBO series, “A Game of Thrones.”
Littlefinger is an adviser to King Robert who manipulates those in power to fit his own agenda.
Gillen is familiar to HBO viewers as Councilman Thomas ‘Tommy’ Carcetti on the network’s “The Wire.”
The series will not have a major presence at the upcoming San Diego Comic Con, though a trailer for the series will be shown during the “True Blood” panel. That’s because the series is currently re-shooting some scenes and tweaking things in the pilot.
However, that doesn’t meant that “Thrones” will be delayed. HBO says the series is still on target to debut next spring.
