Jason Momoa took to a panel on Fan Expo Saturday, and of course, he was engaged with questions for his upcoming role as Aquaman in DC’s JUSTICE LEAGUE.
Many fans know him for the roles he’s defined – Ronon Dex in STARGATE ATLANTIS, and KHAL DROGO on GAME OF THRONES; he’s also taken on the part of CONAN in 2011’s CONAN THE BARBARIAN. At the panel, Momoa gets to talk about his time with these characters, discuss other creative pursuits, and have fun with the audience through his own brand of humor. Check out the clips below.

5. “THIS IS MY DAY!”
Just as you’d expect at a celebrity panel, Jason Momoa gets asked some silly questions. “What’s your favorite Canadian food?” “Can you re-enact the Danerys honeymoon scene with me?” It isn’t just his responses that generate some laughs, but the cadence by which he escalates his answers. How far does he turn it up??
“THIS IS MY DAY!!”
6. On ROAD TO PALOMA and The Role That Got Away
Jason Momoa talks about ROAD TO PALOMA, a film that explores certain injustices on Native American Reservations, which he also wrote and directed. Momoa says that his role in the film is the closest to his own personality that he’s played.
He also shares what role he’s read for that he didn’t end up getting. For what film / show? HINT: it’s a remake of a classic film, due 2016, directed by Antoine Fuqua.
