Mark Gatiss in Game of Thrones? Just how many fandoms does he plan to conquer?
Why do I think this? Well, why else would he now be joining the cast of Game of Thrones - probably the most widely popular fantasy television series ever - for its fourth season? He'll be appearing on the show next spring as an as yet unannounced character, securing access to whole swathes of previously un-Gatissed fans.
Oh sure, some will say that it's a wise move for a man always wanting to break into new areas and seeking new roles to act, and yes, he's probably a fan, but surely, these reasons are too obvious. No, the only reasonable conclusion is that Gatiss seeks to dominate all Geek fandom. Just you watch: next he'll be writing a superhero movie...
