Jason Momoa Cast in Sundance Channel Drama

Actor Jason Momoa arrives at the premiere of HBO's "Game Of Thrones" Season 3 at TCL Chinese Theatre on March 18, 2013 in Hollywood, California.

Game of Thrones' Jason Momoa will star in Sundance Channel's new show The Red Road, the network announced today. The show is about the clash between a small town and its Native American neighbors in the Ramapo Mountains, plus the sheriff trying to make everyone get along — because every show has to be about a sheriff. Momoa, whom we'll forever think of as "king of the guys," will play an ex-convict who returns to the area at the behest of his father. He, of course, has long-standing beef with the sheriff, and things get tense. Sexily intense? We will have to wait and see.
