ame of Thrones and Aquaman star Jason Momoa is a part of upcoming science-fiction film Dune. Dune, a Denis Villeneuve directorial, is based on the science fiction book of the same name by Frank Herbert.

Momoa plays Duncan Idaho in this film, starring the who’s who of Hollywood. Idaho is the master swordsman and swordmaster for the House Atreides.

Momoa told Ellen Degeneres, “I have never been part of something so big. I get to play this character Duncan Idaho, who is kind of a master swordsman. He is made the right-hand man to Duke Leto, played by Oscar Isaac. He is the first person to be sent out to land on Dune, and that’s when I meet the character that Javier Bardem plays.”

He added, “I can’t believe I had a scene with Javier Bardem! It’s him and Timothée Chalamet, Josh Brolin, Rebecca Ferguson, and Stellan Skarsgård. It’s a pretty massive film and I get to be this little—he’s kind of the Han Solo-esque of the group. He’s kind of the rogue warrior who protects Timothée Chalamet and he serves Oscar Isaac.”
