Conan the Barbarian has been brought back to life, this time being played by Jason Momoa!
Deadline Hollywood reports that the (ahem) Stargate: Atlantis actor has been cast for the title, beating out Twilight actor Kellan Lutz as well as the upcoming Tonight Show host Jay Leno.
(For those of you who don’t stand with Coco, that last one was a joke. Let’s see NBC try to give a bloodthirsty Cimmerian less than seven months to beat Letterman! Without ER, no less!)
This decision came after much speculation, in which Millennium Films. Lionsgate, and Paradox Entertainment narrowly OK’d the casting after seeing test footage of Momoa in action.
