When you see Jason Momoa the first thing you think is Game of Thrones. This is the case for a lot of people. The show has dominated tv rating like Bub dominates Pat in a ghosts are real argument. Momoa is also know for roles fans love like Ronon Dex on Stargate: Atlantis and Conan. What may shock fans is Momoa is also funny as hell. Seriously, this guy could do stand up comedy and he talked for a good 45 minutes. Don’t worry I cut it down to all the stuff you want to hear and kept out the questions he answered that will surely be giving the nerds who asked them night terrors. The audience was in awe of him the whole time he was talking and he also acted as his own MC walking around the room asking the questions himself. It was very easy to explain the sex dreams I’ve been having about him at night. So here it is the Jason Momoa Motor City Comic Con panel. Enjoy!
Momoa was asked what he would do if Khal Drogo was still alive on Game of Thrones?
It wouldn’t be a series. I’d just cross the goddamn ocean, kill everyone, and sit on the throne. I’d say DANNY NOW! She comes and sits on my lap. Dragons are playing on the floor. Stallion mounts the world, riding dragons, everyone’s happy, I’m drinking, you’d be drinking, and I go here honey here’s your fucking throne I’m going to go drink with my boys. None of this seven book bullshit. Cross the ocean give your wife what she wants.
Momoa was asked who was your favorite character to play?
That’s tough I’ve been very honored to have some amazing roles. Ronon Dex was a phenomenal character to play I love him. I had four years to play this samurai, western gun slinging, bad ass, dreadlock, rosta, fucking he was awesome. Game of Thrones was probably farthest from who I am. So as an actor that was amazing to play Drogo. I’d probably say that was the most challenging. Red Road is not fantasy or sci-fi so you probably have no idea what the fuck I’m talking about. As far as for me it was something that I really wanted to do. I get to represent a tribe and some of the things that are happening right now in our government. It’s just an honor to play that role. It’s really fun speaking English and I also like wearing clothes. I know you don’t like me in clothes. But, I do like wearing clothes contrary to popular belief.
Momoa was asked did you read Game of Thrones before playing Khal Drogo? Or did you not read it all because you don’t care?
I absolutely read it because I care. I read the book. First off I got the sides, that’s the first time I ever got sides. That’s where they send you the book pages and here’s the scene. Obviously my scenes like NO…NO. I’m like what the fuck is this. Shake ashock ashuckalaney and I’m like I got to read the goddamn book. I don’t care its HBO. I’m going to do this so I read just the Danny spots because obviously I had to audition very quickly. I was hooked and I locked myself in the bedroom. I was like honey I have to learn this this is a huge thing. So I sat in there for two days and just read. I was a huge fan. Then I get to the part where I’m dying and I’m like no fucking way what? So I threw the book across the room. I went to Barnes and nobles. I ran to Barnes and nobles. I look at the next copy. I’m like no no no no and I just threw the books again. I was pissed but I was like fuck it I got to get this role. I love the book and after I died I’m like it fucking sucks I’m not going to read it any more. I do watch the show, and I love the show. Seeing all my friends just kill it. It’s shot so beautifully and it’s an amazing piece of art.
Momoa was asked do you try to stay in shape for all the roles you do?
No. On Red Road I didn’t do a damn thing. If you’re going to pay me to work out, I’ll work out. If you ain’t paying me to work out I ain’t doing shit. You have to pay a homie.
Momoa was asked hypothetically who would win in a fight you or Sylvester Stallone?
Well he is really old man. Obviously I’d win because he’s like up to my nipple. Sylvester Stallone is the man. He taught me everything I know. I watched Rocky 5 and trained for Conan. Sly is an amazing man. I totally dig him.
Momoa was asked I heard the first time you met Emilia Clark that you ran in hugged her and yelled wifey really loud is that true?
Yeah I did do that. I feel like it breaks the ice. I’m going to be raping you soon so we should get to know each other.
Momoa was asked do you ever feel that you’re type cast as Ronon Dex, Khal Drogo, or Conan?
Do you think I played Ronon Dex the same way I played Conan? That’s why there is no Conan 2. My friends always do that to me. Dude your movie was awesome you woke me up like four times. I played them all different. You know what it is I’m just trying to be a working actor. I don’t have a lot of choices. I really like the roles I played. They’ve been my choice to play them I wasn’t forced to play them. I’ve done some roles I definitely did for money but, Drogo, Ronon, and Conan were not for money. Drogo was definitely not for money.
Momoa was asked who would you like to work with that you haven’t worked with yet?
Daniel Day-Lewis would be at the top of my list but I don’t ever see that fucking happening.
Momoa was asked is there any truth to you being in the Man of Steel sequel?
What does everything tell you? No, stop asking me, so annoying. Sorry you’re not annoying, how many times do I have to say no? Oh you’re the press? Get the fuck out of here. This is going to be on the internet now isn’t it? Put this in there you’re a dick you’re a dick. You’re not a dick I’m just playing. I think it started with me going like hey who would you play as a superhero? Batman or Superman would be awesome to be in and people were like he’s in Batman and Superman. Then their like whose you’re favorite character and I’m like um Lobo. Then people say he’s Lobo. Then someone else goes he’s Aquaman and I’m like where the fuck do you pull out Aquaman.
