'Game of Thrones' Season 2 rumors include Gerard Butler, Debbie Reynolds appearing on 'SYTYCD'
The casualty-filled final episodes have cleared room for the addition of new characters from the books (and actors to play them) when the series returns in Spring 2012. And the day after the finale, a possible goof on the series' IMDB page has people wondering if Gerard Butler is joining the cast.
Warming Glow points out the "300" actor is currently credited as playing Stannis Baratheon on the series. And while Stannis, the oldest surviving brother of felled king Robert Baratheon ( Mark Addy), will likely find his way into Season 2 storylines... he won't be played by Butler.
HBO confirms to Zap2it that Butler's addition to the cast is not true, so you can probably credit this to IMDB's communal editing policy and a bored, hopeful fan.
