The extras are coming.

Fresco Film Services, a production company in Spain that's working with HBO to fill roles for the next season of "Game of Thrones," got a bit more than they bargained for when their casting call made its rounds on the Internet. In just 24 hours, over 10,000 people sent in their applications to be extras for when the show starts filming later his year. Thanks to the barrage of hopefuls sending in their headshots, the company took to their Facebook page to let candidates know they'd be responding in as timely a manner as possible.

Besides proving how obsessed the entire planet has become when it comes to George R.R. Martin's fantasy series, the casting call also confirmed some theories on what fans can expect from the fifth season of the show. Some leaked script details reveal the country will probably be substituting for Dorne, the home of Prince Oberyn Martell, and we're sure to see his famous offspring, collectively known as the Sand Snakes, before Season 5 ends.
