For those of you who don’t already know, Considine starred in the hit HBO series “The Outsider,” and he was outstanding in it.

Now, he’s remaining with the network to lead one of the most anticipated series in the history of television.

Even though it’s one casting decision, this call gives me hope that “House of the Dragon” is going to be absolutely awesome.

While I didn’t love the ending of “Game of Thrones,” there’s no doubt that it was one of the greatest accomplishments in the history of entertainment.

It was groundbreaking and iconic on many different levels.

I can’t wait to see what we get in “House of the Dragon.” If you’re not super pumped, then you don’t understand great entertainment when it slaps you in the face.

Keep checking back for more updates on the show about the Targaryens. You know I’ll be keeping you all updated!
