Ronon the Barbarian? Conan confusion continues

Conan’s in the news again — and I’m not talking O’Brien.

Tinseltown blog Deadline Hollywood seems to think that former Stargate Atlantis strong-silent type Jason Momoa is up for the role of Conan in the next movie to be based on Robert E. Howard’s titular barbarian.

Just this summer, The Hollywood Reporter had Austrian bodybuilder Roland Kickinger playing the Cimmerian strongman … twice played by Austrian bodybuilder Arnold Schwarzenegger.

Another name bandied about is that of Kellan Lutz, who plays the bulky bloodsucker Emmett Cullen in the movies based on Stephenie Meyer’s Twilight saga.
