‘Game of Thrones’ star Nikolaj Coster-Waldau in Madrid: would you hit it?

I still haven’t seen Season 2 of Game of Thrones. I know, I know. I’m not a good geek. But I saw Season 1 and I think most people have a love-hate relationship with Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, who plays Jaime Lannister in the series. On one hand, he’s a really attractive Danish actor who looks like he could give it to you properly. On the other hand, he plays a devious psycho really, really well. Is it a toss-up? Or should we follow our Vs and just declare him totally bangable?

It helps that he’s getting work beyond Game of Thrones too. These are pics of Nikolaj in Madrid promoting Mama, that super-creepy-looking horror film (produced by Guillermo del Toro, and very much with his sensibilities) also starring (surprise!) Jessica Chastain. I think they play a married couple in the film. When he’s not “in character” as a Lannister, Nikolaj has a nice face. Attractive. Sexy, even. Does anyone else think he’s got a “Young Val Kilmer with a dash of Viggo” vibe? You can see it more in the thumbnails.

What else…? I don’t know. Do you want his vitals? He’s 42 years old. He’s worked in Danish films and television for years. He’s married and he has two daughters, and they live in Denmark. His wife is Greenlandic! And I just now realized that he plays Paul Bettany’s tennis buddy in Wimbledon!! I love that movie. So, yes, I would hit it. But not when he was in character as a Lannister.

    Maybe if his nose looked a little better, I might throw some his way.

  2. Jen34 says:

    I really like his looks, so yeah, I would hit it. If we could get John Snow to join us, I would die happy.

  3. T.Fanty says:

    He’s 42? Wow. I would totally hit it. And then make him wash that shirt.

    • Stephie says:

      At a quick glance, and I do mean quick, I thought it was Pitt. But this guy is so much hotter and sexier than Pitt… Maybe Pitt 10 years ago! And his clothes appear to be pressed and much cleaner than the ones we have seen Pitt in lately. Yes, I’d hit it and hard!!!

  4. QQ says:

    Like a House on Fire

    So Hard It would Void the warranty

  5. Ms Kay says:

    Funny he gives me more the Gabriel Aubry side…

    Boy in Game of Thrones, is the villain I hate to love… Jaime Lannister is arrogant, pompous, incestuous and yet… Soooo sexy!

  6. T.C. says:

    He looks better on the screen than in real life.

  7. Gwen says:

    He is a really, really nice guy and hot and dirty too, so yeah. I’m pretty sure he’s a very devoted husband though, so no such luck *sigh*

  8. Miss Kiki says:

    That shirt is disgusting HOWEVER I’d probably still let him do me.

  9. Amelia says:

    Headhunters was ****ing amazing!! I love Jo Nesbo so much, his books are brilliant.
    I was so impressed how competently Nikolaj handled a Norwegian language film, he’s a big hit in our household.
    So, ladies, I hereby stake my claim – MINE.

  10. BW says:

    I loved Headhunters. Of course, he plays another psycho in it.

    His nose bothers me, but it works for him. He has a pretty smile.

  11. magda says:

    ..and I’m counting down days to season 3. hopeless geek.

  12. Queen says:

    He has ugly nose and squinty eyes, so answer is “no”.

  13. Tiffany says:

    He also starred in a show years back called New Amsterdam. Great show that was cancelled too soon. Fox really did nothing to promote it.

  14. eileen says:

    Yes. Every night and twice on Sundays. Mmmmhmmmm

  15. LAK says:

    He rocks in HEADHUNTERS. love that film, and love him more.

  16. Chickadee says:

    These are not the most flattering pics of him, but he could totally get it.

  17. Bibs says:

    I love him, he could get it. Good actor and seems like a decent guy who has been married to his wife since he was in his 20s

  18. karmasabiatch! says:

    Oh, HELL. YES!!! I would hit that so hard, he would wind up in Intensive Care for a few weeks.

    Jamie Lannister is sick and twisted, for sure. But he’s MY sick and twisted hottie. Phew! Smokin’ hot.

  19. hmm says:

    Yes. In real life he seems very nice. I like that a lot of the GOT is not all Hollywood.

  20. Maya says:

    Of course I would hit that! Hes from Denmark :D

  21. jessiesgirl says:

    They must have used him as the model for Prince Charming in the Shrek series.

  22. Annelise says:

    He’s my favorite man from Game of Thrones! He’s the show’s Alex Skarsgard, the token tall, sexy Scandinavian hottie. Keep up the GOT coverage, Kaiser!

  23. Kaboom says:

    I recommend his failed TV show New Amsterdam if you can get your hands on it. He plays a weary immortal living in New York working as a homicide detective looking for his one true love that will make him mortal.

  24. Tulip says:

    He also plays jessica Chastain’s hubby in the movie he’s promoting now (Mama). It was that movie that made me find out who he was. I couldnt like him in season one Thrones, but now, hell yes!

  25. Boromir's Bytch says:

    A “hint of Viggo” is enough to make him instantly appealing. And I see just a touch of Sean Bean in him too.

    • Bored suburbanhousewife says:

      I loved his sword fight with Sean in first GOT season. Also love Iain Glenn as Jorah Mormont (and the wicked Sir Richard in Downton Abbey).

      Jaime grows as a character in the books in a positive way.

      Still can’t get my jones on for GOT since Ned died but I really like Nikolaj.

  26. Camille (TheOriginal) says:

    He’s scrumptious, so yes I would.

  27. Raven says:

    Oh hell yeah! Ive seen him on the talk show circuit and unfortunately his normal speaking voice is nowhere near as sexy as Jaime Lannister’s, but he seems like a good guy.

  28. mom2two says:

    He is a seriously good looking man. I’m not loving the outfit.
    I would say that he, Richard Madden and Kit Harington are the most attractive actors in television (I’d also say movies too).

  29. Gemini08 says:

    Sometimes I think “Yes, I would”. Other times I think , “No, not so much”. These photos are “No, not so much” for me

  30. victoria1 says:

    YES I WOULD!!!! I love him on Game of Thrones, even if he is an evil incestous asshole. Still hot and sexy as hell.

  31. Adrien says:

    Nikolaj = Brad Pitt and Tim Olyphant’s love child.

  32. RHONYC says:




  33. jasmine says:

    i’m in madrid!!!! anyone know where he’s staying :)

  34. amilu says:

    SO HARD. He’s beautiful — even more beautiful in film than in still photographs.

    I loved his character in GoT season 2 – particularly loved his interactions with Brienne.

  35. amilu says:

    He was AWESOME in Headhunters. I didn’t love the movie, but he was great in it.

    I’m also REALLY curious about a failed Fox show he did in 2008 called “New Amsterdam.” I missed it when it came out. I’d never even heard about it until I was googling NC-W after I saw Headhunters. It (New Amsterdam) was available for streaming on Hulu; I hope it still is! I keep meaning to check it out, and then I get distracted on sites like Celebitchy!
