Game Of Thrones' Kit Harington Goes Gladiator In New Pompeii Still
He will have his vengeance (and another protein shake, most likely)

21 August 2013  |  Written by Ali Plumb  |  Source: EW

Some people watch Game Of Thrones for the excellent acting, the intricate plotting, the adorable (yet killer) direwolves, the sky-high production values, the uber-catchy theme tune or a combination of all five. Others (whether they admit it or not) are in it for Kit Harington's Jon Snow, the embarrasingly handsome long-haired Adonis who makes most men double-check their gym membership. It's a wonder he's not in cinemas more often... and lo, here's a new still of Harrington in Paul W. S. Anderson's Pompeii courtesy of EW. That's a whole lot of press-ups right there.

The Resident Evil director's take on history's most famous volcanic eruption sees Harington's Celtic gladiator Milo fall in love with Roman noblewoman Cassia (Emily Browning) on the eve of the all-important lava palaver. After a certain amount of rumpy-Pompeii, things gets extra dramatic when Milo finally discovers the men who killed his family years earlier, which will no doubt result in a nice cup of tea and a sit down bloodshed.

Rounding out Pompeii's cast are Jared Harris, Kiefer Sutherland, Carrie-Anne Moss, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje and Jessica Lucas, who will all be walking through plumes of ash and toxic outer-core dust looking cool come February 28, 2014.

Harington will also voice a character in the upcoming How To Train Your Dragon 2 and can be spotted in Seventh Son once February 7, 2014 comes along.
