While preparing for TDKR a few weeks back, me and the ladymissus were watching Batman Begins (my favorite of the three Nolan Batflix in case you were curious, which you probably weren’t), and when the precocious, helpless little youngun who sticks to Katie Holmes’s side appeared, I nearly shit a dragon. “Wait…no way! Holy shit, it’s Tiny King Joffrey!” Sure, the randomest people apear in movies they did long before you saw them or became a fan. But never in a million years did I expect the little prick who beheaded Ned Stark to show up in one of my favorite movies ever. And be good at not being a malicious tween tyrant. Goes to show ya’…something, I guess. Anyway, good grab by my brosef here.
Oh…and DON’T cry “Spoiler alert!”, because that happened a while ago now. There has to be a statute of limitations or expiration date on keeping show/movie surprises a secret, right? @AriVoukydis has theories and material aplenty on this. Consult him, but I’m not taking the rap here. If you wanted to get into to “Game of Thrones” by now, which you should have, then you would have. So…there. And yes, this little dude, whatever his name is, gives great teen villain.
WAIT - just before hitting PUBLISH I bothered to take all of four seconds and look up this actor’s name. And it’s…JACK GLEESON? Come on now! Really? That’s too much. Helluva run this kid’s on.
