Jason Momoa

UPDATE: Read what Jason Momoa had to say about “Game of Thrones” and his acting career at last weekend’s Emerald City Comicon.

“Game of Thrones” and “Conan the Barbarian” star Jason Momoa is the latest celebrity guest announced for next week’s Emerald City Comicon in Seattle.

Momoa is replacing Katee Sackhoff (“Battlestar Galactica”) who had to cancel her appearance at ECCC due to filming conflicts with her latest movie, “Chronicles of Riddick 3.”

Momoa, who rose to fame on “Baywatch” and later starred in “Stargate: Atlantis,” will now be appearing all weekend.

Momoa added to his star power with his turn as the warlord Khal Drogo in the critically acclaimed and highly popular HBO series “Game of Thrones.”

The imposing, gravelly-voiced Momoa is currently in production on “Road To Paloma,” a road movie he has written and will direct and star in. He is married to actress Lisa Bonet (“The Cosby Show”) and they have three children together.

Here’s the current line-up of media guests:
George Takei (Sulu from “Star Trek”)
Lea Thompson (“Back to the Future,” “Red Dawn,” “Caroline in the City”)
Edward James Olmos (“Blade Runner,” “Miami VIce,” “Battlestar Galactica”)
James and Oliver Phelps (Weasley Twins from the Harry Potter films)
Adam Baldwin (Col. John Casey on “Chuck,” “Firefly,” Stanley Kubrick’s “Full Metal Jacket”)
Summer Glau (“The Sarah Connor Chronicles,” “Firefly”)
Jon Bernthal (Shane on “The Walking Dead”)
Laurie Holden (Andrea on “The Walking Dead,” “The Shield”)
Eddie McClintock (“Warehouse 13,” “Bones”)
Christopher Judge (“Stargate SG-1,” the upcoming “The Dark Knight Rises”)
Julie Caitlin Brown (“Babylon 5,” “JAG”)
Wil Wheaton (“Star Trek The Next Generation,” “Stand By Me”).

Read my interviews with Takei and Bernthal next week. In addition, I’ll be interviewing the Phelps twins live on stage at ECCC.

ECCC runs March 30-April 1 at the Washington State Convention Center.
