Today in “Sure, Why Not?” casting news, GoT/Aquaman star Jason Mamoa has been cast as the lead in the upcoming Frosty the Snowman live-action reboot of the children’s holiday classic.
The reason? Something to do with (*checks notes*) conquering all the elements?
Says producer Jon Berg:
“From his role as a fearsome count in a land of ice and fire to the oceanic success we all had with Aquaman, it felt only right to realize Jason this time out of snow,” Berg said.
And from co-producer Greg Silverman:
“We know Jason’s as a true human being filled with love, compassion and a deep connection to ohana — all of which is the living spirit of Xmas and Frosty.”
I’m on board. Hopefully it will be an origin story where he’s a sexy, shirtless snow scientist/snow expert who is transformed by one of his experiments into the titular snowman halfway through the film… or maybe he’s a sexy, shirtless snow hater and is cursed by the gods to become the thing he despises… but whatever the direction… more Mamoa is always good.
