Another performer has joined The Biggest TV Show Cast in the Universe. A British actor (you probably guessed that) named Patrick Malahide had joined Game of Thrones season two as Balon Greyjoy, with the news first reported on Malahide has appeared in movies like The World is Not Enough and Billy Elliot.

Balon Greyjoy is Theon’s stern father, the ruler of the Iron Islands.

For those who missed the other news, the Thrones production will expand to two more countries in season 2 (get those details here). And here are the other season 2 cast updates: Here’s who will play Craster, Bolton, and Gilly. Here’s the assassin Jaqen, Theon’s fierce sister, Stannis and Melisandre and Davos; here’s who’s cast for Brienne and here’s Margaery Tyrell. Check out my Game of Thrones season 1 recaps here.
