Finn Jones has captivated the very captive audience of HBO’s Game of Thrones the way his political hero Bernie Sanders has captivated Jones’ generation. But portraying Ser Loras Tyrell is just a stepping stone for Jones, who just bagged one of the most coveted roles in young Hollywood. Jones will play Danny Rand — aka Iron Fist — in a new Marvel-Netflix team-up. Daredevil and Jessica Jones have already been big hits for the Marvel-Netflix collaboration. Finn Jones is about to blow up.
In Iron Fist, Rand is taken as a boy from New York to K’un-L’un where apprenticed to the mystical city’s ruler he learns extraordinary martial arts techniques and obtains mystical powers. Then, yup, as an adult he returns to NYC to have at the villains that unceasingly plague the metropolis. Not a far cry from Sanders’ story. The Dem presidential candidate left New York and obtained nearly mystical powers in Vermont, returning to the national scene with fighting skills the likes of which Hillary Clinton hadn’t expected. Jones will likely channel Sanders for the Iron Fist role.
thought Bernie Sanders performance at the debate this evening was brilliant – cutting through all the bullshit, speaking truth. Brave man.
