Other actors that need to be cast are hopefully and some probably won't even make it to the tv show but it's still fun to speculate. What do you guys think?

I think you can forget most of the movie stars. They are not going to be playing supporting roles on a TV show anytime soon. Why would Keira Knightly play what's really a tiny role on a TV show? She's got movies to star in.
You can also forget Americans like Tom Berenger and Steve Buscemi (who's a little busy with another show, anyway), as it's pretty clear they aren't casting Americans unless they absolutely can't find an already legal-to-work-in-the-UK actor for the role.
Plus, a lot of these characters are either going to be cut (e.g., Reeds, Blackfish) or pushed back into season 4 or beyond (e.g., other Greyjoys).
I really hope that when they cast the Dornish characters they go with non-white actors, since it's the only real chance for some diversity in Westeros and matches the description in the books. The Martells are "olive-skinned." The names I've seen suggested, Oded Fehr and Alexander Siddig, are better ideas for the Red Viper, IMO.
