Be still my heart! The new Conan is drop dead gorgeous. The 32 year old, 6' 4" hunk of burning love is originally from Hawaii and has two kids with actress Lisa Bonet.
Maybe this will be the role to launch him to stardom, although he's been around for awhile. In 2004, after the short-lived TV series "North Shore," he was cast as the popular character "Ronon Dex" in the TV series "Stargate: Atlantis," which achieved a cult-like following. In 2010, he appeared in the Emmy-nominated HBO series "Game of Thrones," which had the same casting director who was searching for the titular role in the reboot of Conan the Barbarian.
Jason has a production company, "Pride of Gypsies," in which he is expanding his career from actor to filmmaker. He has directed a couple of short films and is working on his feature film debut "Road to Paloma."Let's hope we see a lot of more of him in the future.
Conan the Barbarian open in theaters next Friday, Aug. 19th.
