Jason Momoa tries to write his way back on 'Game of Thrones'

Jason Momoa, known for his role on “Game of Thrones,” saw his character killed off this season. But the actor wants back on the show, and he’s plotting to bring Drogo back, according to an interview with New York Magazine.

“There’s a possibility you’ll see me do him again,” the actor said of his Barbarian warrior Khal Drogo. And the fact that he’s dead? Minor detail. “It’s a fantasy world, sweetheart.”

“I wrote some scenes and they might try to use them,” Momoa reveals of his crafty plan. “George [R.R. Martin] can only write so much. Something could happen. Drogo could have a twin. You never know!”

Well, we do know, because there's no twin in the book series the show is based on. But Momoa has only read the first installment (aka, season one).

“My wife [Lisa Bonet] let me spend four days straight reading it,” the actor says of “A Game of Thrones.” While reading, Momoa became a fan of warrior Drogo: “I loved him. He was the best guy. And I loved watching him fall in love. Of all the characters, he was the least backstabbing. He didn’t say a lot, but his s-- got handled.”

Even if you never see Momoa again on “Game of Thrones,” rest assured that he’ll continue playing brawny barbarians. In fact, he stars in the upcoming remake of “Conan the Barbarian.” (Typecast much?)

Oh, and he’s already written a “Conan” sequel.

    Jason Momoa has the capacity for comedy, romance, hell, singing and dancing, i'll wager. Do not typecast such a gifted actor. feedthebirdstuppanceabag Love, Linda ps; Johnny Depp with more alpha.

    I have had a crush on Jason since Johnson Family Vacation. He was the only reason to remember that movie.

    Would likt to see Jason back on the show in another role just not what hes saying here. Bring him back with a clean shaven face across the sea away from Dany and throw some westeros armor on him. He would make a good Dornish knight and let him speak a bit and live longer

    We all know the Khal ain't coming back. If I was in Momoa's shoes, I'd try that Spartacus show on Starz.

    I would love to see Jason Momoa aka "Khal Drogo" back on the Game of Thrones. I loved him! The tough silent kick ass warrior type, you can kill as many enemies you like to protect your bride and people! Sure bring him back! Hell if his women can walk through fire and "hatch" those dragon eggs, why can't they use his ashes, his bones, cast a spell through the "blood" of the dragons, evoke the Gods of the Dragos and bring forth his spirit, soul and body and truly make him the warrior he is meant to be? PLEASE bring him back! I truly want the Dragos to make war against the bratty evil child king and his wicked queen who screwed her brother to protect thier "name" and "steal" the throne after King Robert died....just bring the warrior Khol back!

    On the subject of dead people, Sean Bean has very important scenes that had not been shown yet and should be record ASAP (if not already done). note that those scenes wont probably be shown until season 6 or even season 7.

    It would be possible to use is "twin" at the end of book 5 on the Dany Arc. They just need to replace Khal Jhaqo by him. But he wont be back until season 5 even so. Whats nice about it is book 6 is not written yet, so its doable even in the books.

    Drogo's dead and has to stay that way for Dany's character to evolve and follow the path she does. This show has been a success precisely because they have stayed mostly true to Martin's novels and vision. Major changes, like bringing back a deceased main character will *&#$% all over that.

    Sad that an actor I like is sacrificing the quality of story to try to squeeze out another paycheck.

      While I agree with Clyde that bringing back Khal Drogo would go against what George R R Martin has written, remember that it is a cable tv show...anything could/can happen...it wouldn't bother me if Khal came back as his twin...or Uncle...his character was tied for the least backstabbing (tied with Eddard Stark). I would love to see him combined with Dany's character to lay waste to Kings Landing and what is left of the Lannisters rule.

      Dead people are beginning to come back later in the book, but not the way he wants. They could use him in some flashbacks, or in heavy makeup as another character.

    Hi! I agree with what others have written. Jason Momoa – gorgeous! O'Neill and Shepherd were my favourites on the Stargates, although Ronan was tons of fun. I didn't realise that Jason Momoa wrote though. Yay him!!

    Every time I look at Jason, it just amazes me how freakin' gorgeous that man is! Even tho my fav on SG1 was also Jack Oneill, My favorite on Atlantis was John Sheppard (Joe Flanigan-another gorgeous man), but I have to admit that Jason's beauty floors me constantly!
