I don't remember the High Sparrow... Is that a character from Dances with Dragons? I haven't finished that one yet.

The High Sparrow begins to appear in A Feast for Crows and takes on a larger role in A Dance With Dragons.

Dr. Basher!! 

I guess the Baratheon children (sans Joff) are changing actors.

They already changed Tommen.  And with Myrcella becoming a more important player given the shift towards Dorne, that cast change isn't unexpected either.

I'm almost expecting that if/when Rickon Stark comes back into play that another actor will be cast in that role, too.

The actor who was cast as the High Sparrow was JUST ON GoT last season in a totally different role though wasn't he? Doesn't that seem confusing?

Wasn't he the dude the Hound killed who proclaimed "Dying's thirsty work!"

No, that was another actor.  You'd probably recognize David Pryce from a variety of roles.

One thing I'm wondering is if the show going to follow the book chronology moving forward.  There had been some rumblings that the events of A Feast For Crows and A Dance With Dragons might be merged to form as many as 3 seasons.  But I was checking out IMDB the other day, and Peter Dinklage isn't listed in the cast for Season 5 / Episode 1.  Hmmm....

My personal favorite was as a Rays ace pitcher.
