What role Mystic Mac will play or when it will air is still relatively unknown.
“It’s been agreed that McGregor will appear in one of the remaining two seasons of Game of Thrones,” a source told The Sunday Life.
“He was headhunted as it were by HBO, as one of the ‘Game of Thrones’ directors is a huge UFC fan. They believed that he would be a perfect fit for the show.”
Last year McGregor faced off against Game of Thrones’ [6ft9 400lb] Gregor Clegane aka ‘The Mountain’ in what Conor called a “bare-knuckle fight” but it was hardly that. Iceland native Hafthór Júlíus Björnsson plays “The Mountain” in the show.
