Premiere Date for 'Game of Thrones' Season Four is Revealed

We finally know when the fourth season of "Game of Thrones" will be returning to HBO. Drum roll please...Sunday, April 6 at 9 p.m. ET. According to Entertainment Weekly, the full trailer will be released on Sunday night at 8:58 p.m. ET, but they teased that they may have a preview before then.

Casting news has been trickling in, including a first glimpse of the new character, The Mountain, played by Hafþór Júlíus Björnsson. According to the Huffington Post, "Björnsson will play Gregor "The Mountain" Clegane, The Hound's brutal brother. The Icelandic native is the third actor to be cast in the violent role, after two men were recast in Seasons 1 and 2." The actor revealed himself as The Mountain in of all places, Instagram, but we think that sweet smile is deceiving.
