Gregor only really needs to be in like 1 more major scene before his voice doesn't matter.

MMAdotCOM - Im fine with a 7 foot tall mountain thsts the size of lebron james instead of bodybuilder huge as long as he's a good actor. Huge muscles would slowvubdown which is not good in a sword fight Phone Post
The mountain is not suppose to have good form or be an expert swordsman. He is just really big and strong and uses his power to win. The hound his brother is supposed to be big (not as big) but fast and a better technical fighter. Phone Post

Well he is not in the tv show so I do not think he is a important character. Just a creepy fool who sings of the future. Phone Post

Thats not a connection that works though as the show and books at this point are a good deal different, and the show has left out quite a few characters that are 'important' to the story. 

Melisandre said herself that she is creeped out by patchface and has seen his face in her fires, "surrounded by skulls" 

Whether he becomes a big character personally(doubtful) or just plays a part in another big characters story(more likely imo), GRRM writes the books so that many of the side characters are connected to big events.

Prophet of the Drowned God is one theory. I wish they had cast him in the show, instead we just get one little bit of one of his songs from Stannis' daughter instead. He even unsettles Melisandre - "That creature is dangerous. Many a time I have glimpsed him in my flames. Sometimes there are skulls about him, and his lips are red with blood."

diggity - Any update on when the new book is publishing? Phone Post 3.0

A Game of Thrones (1996)
A Clash of Kings (1998)
A Storm of Swords (2000)
A Feast for Crows (2005)
A Dance with Dragons (2011)

At his current pace, I'd say 2017.

Seriously though, since it's confirmed GoT season 4 (2014) will be based on the second part of ASoS - and probably some of the last 2 books, then season 5 and 6 (2015/2016) will likely conclude ADwD. So he needs the next one (The Winds of WInter) to be done by at least mid 2016 so they have time to write/film/edit season 7.

I'm no expert on the series by any stretch, but my gut tells me it'll be out mid/late 2104 - and that's just because he's stated he's writing this one faster.
God damnit I hate him. I just want the next book already Phone Post

Doesn't look like it. He did an interview a few weeks back and said he hasn't been asked back.
Hopefully they cast someone new. Phone Post

There's a strong rumour that he was cut after the first series for sexually harassing cast members and crew.

I've heard it a few times, which makes it very plausible in light of subsequent casting.

I know a couple of people who were involved in the second unit for season one and they basically said it was a badly-kept secret within the production.

It's a lot easier for all involved to say that Conan Stevens was dropped due to 'creative differences', rather than one of the most memorable characters was molesting female cast and crew.

Basically it's ' friend of a friend who heard some stuff', but it makes a lot of sense, especially with the new Mountain being so terrible that they didn't give him any screen time in season three.

Bran has full on conversations with Coldhands.

Coldshands is most likely the Night's King who died centuries ago.

i actually dont want Benjen to be Coldhands but that seems to be the strongest theory.

why would they bring back the actor for Benjen?

especially when its exactly at the point where Coldhands is introduced.

Coldhands being Benjen is NOT the strongest theroy. There really is nothing to point to Coldhands being Benjen besides he is missing and cold hands wears black.

Leaf says coldhand died a long time ago, and that the night watch killed him. At this point Ben would have been dead 2-3 years ; Leaf is over 200 years old, I do not think 2-3 years would be a "Long Time" to him/her.

an excerpt has been posted from GRRM's short story about the original Dance with Dragons about 170 years before the events in a Game of Thrones.

 

http://www.tor.com/stories/2013/07/dangerous-women-george-r-r-martin-excerpt

 

Its written from the perspective of a maester writing the history of westeros.
