From Ronon to Conan: Jason Momoa secures role as Conan the Barbarian

It is being reported today that Jason Momoa, one of the stars of the SyFy Channel’s “Stargate Atlantis”, has secured the title role in the upcoming Conan the Barbarian remake. Momoa beat out rumored contenders Kellan Lutz (Twilight) and Jared Padelecki (Supernatural, Friday the 13th) for the role previously occupied by the Govenator, Arnold Schwarzenegger. Filming is scheduled to begin March 15 in Bulgaria.

I have loved Jason Momoa since he began on Stargate Atlantis and while I also love Kellan and Jared, I think that the physicality of the role – especially the fight scenes which are sure to be a huge part of the movie – are probably better suited to Jason, who – as Ronon Dex – is no stranger to fights and conflict. Good luck to you Jason.

Oh, and because I simply have to do this, here’s a photo I was able to have taken with Jason at my very first DragonCon in 2007…he told me I had beautiful hair *sigh*

  3. OMG! I would have freaked if Jason told me I had anything beautiful. You should have jumped his bones…LOL. Anyway, this year my sis and I are going to dragon con and comic con. Seeing you gives me inspiration. I am a big TB, Stargate Atlantis, and Supernatural fan. I now have my sis addicted to TB and Supernatural. I never went to the conventions b/c I thought I would be the only black girl there. However, you gave me a confidence boost!

    And I do have a few questions for you if you tend not to mind.
    Is it just me or does it look like a few of these remarks look like they are coming from brain dead folks?

    😛 And, if you are writing on other sites, I would
    like to keep up with everything fresh you have to post.
