The movie, which originally premiered at Fantastic Fest 2021 in Texas, will be released in cinemas and on demand on April 1 in North America. His HBO outing, Succession, has been a bit hit for the TV network, and recently, the star let slip that he could have worked with HBO a long time ago in the TV show giant Game of Thrones. He said he was "extremely disappointed" but respected the ruling. In an excerpt from his new memoir Putting the Rabbit in the Hat, he said that he turned down a role on Game of Thrones because"the money was not all that great. Game of Thrones are available on DVD and Blu-ray." In a section published by GQ, Brian explained what one of his most asked questions was and why he turned the blockbuster show down.

No stranger to a sci-fi or fantasy show, having appeared in an X-Men film, voiced an animated character in Blade Runner: Black Lotus and starred in Penny Dreadful, fans might wonder why he said no to the George R R Martin novel inspired show. During Sunday's court hearing before a three-judge panel, Djokovic's defence unsuccessfully argued that the grounds given by the government were "invalid and illogical". "I'm often asked if I was offered a role in Game of Thrones — reason being that every other b****r was — and the answer is, yes," he wrote. "I was supposed to be a king called Robert Baratheon, who apparently died when he was gored by a boar in the first season." Game of Thrones ran for eight seasons and helped turn actors such as Kit Harington, Emilia Clarke and Richard Madden into household names. There has been much public anger in Australia over Djokovic's attempt to enter the country while unvaccinated. Brian Cox and the cast of Succession have won numerous awards (Image: Getty) Mark Addy went on to accept the role of Robert Baratheon (Image: HBO) He continued:"I know very little about Game of Thrones, so I can't tell you whether or not he was an important character, and I'm not going to google it just in case he was because I turned it down. Have just heard the tragic news that Sean Rice, my partner from DOI has passed away.

"  In the passage, he added:"Why? Well, Game of Thrones went on to be a huge success and everybody involved earned an absolute fortune, of course. "But when it was originally offered, the money was not all that great, shall we say. Plus, I was going to be killed off fairly early on, so I wouldn't have had any of the benefits of the long-term effects of a successful series where your wages go up with each passing season." The role eventually went to Mark Addy, and although he had a solid seven-episode stint on the show, events that followed in the coming seasons meant the king was soon forgotten. DON'T MISS.
