‘Game of Thrones’ Star Nikolaj Coster-Waldau Joins New FX Show

It’s been one month since Game of Thrones aired its final episode. And now, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau is preparing to make his highly anticipated return to the small screen. (He’s widely recognized for playing Jaime Lannister in the hit HBO series.)

The 48-year-old actor is set to star as Jack DeVoe in the upcoming FX pilot Gone Hollywood

The series will revolve around a Hollywood talent agency in the ’80s. It will follow a group of agents who break away from the corporate side of the business to start their own firm. The problem? The new talent agency quickly gains popularity, ultimately disrupting the way Hollywood makes movies.

Gone Hollywood will be written and directed by Ted Griffin (Ocean’s Eleven). It will feature fictional characters, along with portrayals of real-life figures who were prominent during the ’80s.

In addition to Coster-Waldau, the series already has an all-star cast, including John Magaro (The Umbrella Academy), Lola Kirke (Mozart in the Jungle), Ben Schnetzer (Pride), Jonathan Pryce (Game of Thrones) and Judd Hirsch (Independence Day). Nelson Franklin (The Millers), Eric Lange (Escape at Dannemora), Sarah Ramos (Midnight, Texas), Peta Sergeant (House of Hancock) and Jeremy Shamos (Better Call Saul) will round out the recurring cast.

Long live Jaime Lannister Nikolaj Coster-Waldau.
