Jason Momoa Starred In 'Baywatch' And The Pictures Are Amazing

Jason Momoa Starred In 'Baywatch' And The Pictures Are Amazing

We've still got a couple of weeks until we get to see Jason Momoa in Aquaman, but if early reviews are anything to go by, we're in for a treat. A lot of the praise for the film has landed on Aquaman/Arthur Curry himself, Jason Momoa - also known as Khal Drogo in Game of Thrones or Jason Ioane in Baywatch.

What, you don't remember him appearing in Baywatch? No? Well, I can't say I blame you. The actor played a minor role and looked markedly different.

Check him out:



See, he's not always been a hairy man mountain - in his youth he was a slightly less hairy, slightly less muscular dude.

As well as featuring semi-regularly in the hit 90s show, he also stared in a spin-off TV movie called Baywatch: Hawaiian Wedding, which has a less-than-impressive 45 percent on Rotten Tomatoes.

Prior to popping on the famous red swimming shorts, Momoa was a model - he was Hawaii's Model of the Year in 1999, in fact and it's easy to see why.

He also had roles in North Shore, Johnson Family Vacation and The Game.

He appeared in Stargate: Atlantis as Ronon Dex between 2005 and 2009, before earning the titular role in 2011's Conan the Barbarian.

Of course, what he's best known for is Game of Thrones, where he played Drogo from 2011 to 2012, before his character was bumped off. Sorry, spoiler alert.

Yesterday HBO confirmed there was a special Game of Thrones reunion, which will go out on an as-yet-unreleased box set of every season. The network has teased that as well as featuring characters currently starring in the show, a bunch of actors who saw their characters killed off would also be making an appearance.



Online detectives have spotted that Momoa was in Belfast at around the time the special was being made, prompting many to think that he will make an appearance - but I guess we'll have to wait and see, eh?

Until then, there's not too long a wait for your Momoa fix, with Aquaman hitting UK cinemas on 14 December.

The movie's already making waves (sorry) and on Rotten Tomatoes it's got a very impressive 97 percent from over 10,500 reviews, with experts saying its could be set to toppleThe Dark Knight's impressive £120m opening weekend at the box office and become the highest-earning DC film ever.
