Daario Naharis on a Harley? We can see that. 

Discovery Channel has cast a Game of Thrones actor (actually, two actors from Game of Thrones) to star in its upcoming based-on-a-true-story miniseries Harley and the Davidsons

Michiel Huisman (The Age of Adaline), who plays a mercenary and love interest on Thrones, will star as Walter Davidson. British actor Robert Aramayo (Nocturnal Animals), who has a mysterious role in the upcoming sixth season of Thrones, will play William Harley. In addition, Bug Hall (The Little Rascals) will portray Arthur Davidson.

Harley and the Davidsons “will tell the story of how Milwaukee schoolyard pals built — and rode — the machines that rule the road. Beginning at the turn of the 20th century, at the shores of Lake Michigan, the series charts the birth of Harley-Davidson during a time of great social and technological change and tells the epic story of how two 19-year-old kids from Milwaukee started a company in their backyard that would go on to become an American legend.”

Expect plenty of crashes and family feuds in this rare scripted drama from the channel. 

The six-hour Harley and the Davidsons is set to premiere on Discovery Channel sometime this year.
