Tag: Jason Momoa (1-4 of 4)

Jason Momoa on stepping behind the camera -- and saying goodbye to Khal Drogo


Sure, you loved Game of Thrones’ Khal Drogo. But at the end of the day, everyone’s favorite Dothraki warrior only really had a few things going for him—namely, that perpetually glistening upper body and his silent, terrifying intensity. (Okay, and some truly great eyeliner.)

Since exiting GoT in 2011, actor Jason Momoa has been busy proving that he can do more than grunt and kill—by acting, directing (both a feature and a commercial for the clothing brand Carhartt), producing and, yes, speaking English while fully clothed. In June, word broke that Momoa had reportedly snagged the role of Aquaman in DC’s Batman vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice, as well as a possible solo movie. (The casting has yet to be officially confirmed—but it’s worth noting that Momoa has been a lifeguard, a surfer, a Baywatch actor, and a marine biology major.) Momoa’s directing debut, Road to Paloma, premiered at the Portland Film Festival this week; he also starred in the film and brought it to the big screen with his own production company, Pride of Gypsies.

From self-produced indie passion projects to studio superhero franchises, Momoa is shaping up to be a serious player in Hollywood—and a more formidable force than Khal Drogo ever was. EW chatted with him about his new film and what’s coming next.
