Remember how much you grew to hate that face? Jack Gleeson was such a fantastically believable little tyrant as the sadistic King Joffrey on Game Of Thrones — so much so, the world collectively just learned to DESPISE HIM!
It was all the more impressive to learn that off camera he was a sweet, kind, poetry-reading young man — who was uninterested in staying in show business once his role on the HBO hit wrapped! Impressive… but also a shame. So much talent!
Well, it turns out he’s giving acting a second chance after all!
We were shocked to learn on Wednesday the now 31-year-old is returning to the small screen to co-star in an adaptation of Enid Blyton‘s The Famous Five for the BBC! He’ll play a character named Wentworth — and he’s as far from Joffrey looks-wise as it gets! In fact, we’d be impressed if anyone recognized him right away without being told!
Get your first look at Jack’s comeback (below)!
Still looking pretty sinister, but SO different! What do YOU think? Would you have recognized him??
