First Look At 'Game Of Thrones' Character, The Mountain

Posted: Updated:

"Game of Thrones" fans, take a good hard look at The Mountain. The most pirated show of 2013 won't be back on the air until spring, but its newest cast member, Hafþór Júlíus Björnsson, took to Instagram to reveal a character photo.

Björnsson will play Gregor "The Mountain" Clegane, The Hound's brutal brother. The Icelandic native is the third actor to be cast in the violent role, after two men were recast in Seasons 1 and 2.

But if George R. R. Martin's books give fans any indication of what's to come in Season 4 -- and let's hope they do -- The Mountain will take on a much larger role in Westeros.

Björnsson posted the below photo and wrote, "Game of thrones season 4 #dubrovnik #got #mountain #croatia #sword #big #lovethis." Let's see how long that jolly face lasts.
