SDCC Exclusive: Jason Momoa on Conan the Barbarian

Although Lionsgate decided not to bring their upcoming action flick Conan the Barbarian, based on the Robert E. Howard character and directed by Marcus Nispel, to Hall H  at this year's Comic-Con, they did bring much of the cast to San Diego. One of the ones we were very excited to talk to was Jason Momoa, who stars as the violent Khal Drogo in HBO's "Game of Thrones" and previously had roles in "Stargate: Atlantis," "North Shore" and "Baywatch."

In the exclusive video interview below, he talked about transitioning between the character from George R.R. Martin's books to the famous warrior that has been brought to life not only in Howard's many novels but also in hundreds of comic books over the last forty odd years.

Conan the Barbarian opens nationwide in 3D and 2D theaters on August 19.  Look for our interview with actress Rose McGowan soon.
