Daenerys Targaryen Will Play Sarah Connor In ‘Terminator: Genesis’

The good: Daenerys Targaryen herself, Emilia Clarke, will continue to wet the dreams of many a-nerd, as she’s been officially cast as badass Sarah Conner in the upcoming Terminator remake, directed by Alan Taylor, the man behind the camera for many of the best episodes of Game of Thrones, including “Baelor.” The bad: the last two Terminator movies, Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines and Terminator Salvation, a stream of awful matched only by the couple of months where Seth MacFarlane convinced Clarke to date him.

Clarke joins Jason Clarke, who is in negotiations to play her son John Connor in a storyline I’ve heard involved a trip into the future…Arnold Schwarzenegger is also back in his signature cyborg role. This was a hotly contested role and it came down to Clarke and Brie Larson. (Via)

The great: Emilia Clarke with brown hair for two hours. I do have one question, though: who’d win in a fight, the Terminator or a dragon? It’s these kind of questions that keep me up at night.
