Emilia Clarke

Yesterday Snow White and the Huntsman star Sam Claflin got a huge boost as it sounds like the British actor has landed the coveted role of Finnick Odair, a fan favorite character in The Hunger Games: The Catching Fire. But the actor also landed another role yesterday as Variety reports Claflin, along with stunning "Game of Thrones" star Emilia Clarke, will join Karl Urban (watch our video blog of his new take on Dredd) in the Euro car heist flick Overdrive, from producer Pierre Morel (director of Taken) and Transit director Antonio Negret, with a script from Wanted writing duo Michael Brandt and Derek Haas.

Negret apparently also directed some promotional shorts for G.I. Joe: Retaliation, but with the delay of release until March, we won't see them for awhile. This new feature film project follows two American brothers who decide to take their careers as car thieves to the next level by fleeing to France, where they run afoul of a dangerous black marketeer. Urban is playing one of the siblings alongside Prince Caspian star Ben Barnes. It sounds like there's going to be some impressive car chase action as Morel says, "We're going to do things that you've never seen actual cars do before on screen." Maybe don't blow them up? Highly unlikely.

I love GOT. Great show. A little soap-operatic at times, but enjoyable none-the-less, and Emilia Clarke? Striking woman and one of the most tragic story lines in GOT...even though I think she's about to kick some major bootay!

When she is not in costume, she is a lot less hot. Still attractive, but Khalessi...damn!

Couldn't disagree more. I thought she was perfect in the show until I saw her in an inerview. Now that's perfection!

Saw her comicon interview, hot blonde, insanely gorgeous brunette. I weep every time I see a beautiful brunette go blonde (for any reason). Wake up society, it makes you look older and washes out your complexion.

Wow he is one lucky guy to land that role - this sounds like a dream team of collaborators - this could have serious potential!
