Euron Greyjoy Officially Cast for Game of Thrones

I was starting to think I'd never be able to say these words, Euron Greyjoy has officially been cast for the sixth season of Game of Thrones.  Not rumors, not speculations, but officially confirmed from HBO themselves.  

The actor taking on the fan-favorite character of Euron Greyjoy will be Pilou Asbæk.  Asbæk  has previously appeared on screen in the Danish series Borgen, alongside fellow Game of Thrones actress Birgitte Hjort Sørensen.  Asbæk will also be appearing in the 2016 remake of Ben-Hur, where he will be playing Pontius Pilate.  

I can't even begin to describe my excitement with this piece of casting news.  I just hope Game of Thrones accurately depicts the Euron Greyjoy I know from the books.  But, what do you think about this piece of news?  Leave your thoughts in the comments below!
