The guys behind “Game of Thrones” have gone to interesting lengths in their efforts to cast the right actors.

The New York Post says six characters on the show have been played by current or former porn stars.

Sibel Kekilli, a native of Germany who has a continuing role as Tyrion Lannister’s lover Shae, appeared in adult films more than a decade ago.

Samantha Bentley, crowned best female performer at the U.K. Adult Producers Awards last year, has been named a cast member for the fourth season. Jessica Jensen, who won best newcomer at the same awards in 2011, also will play an unspecified part.

Aeryn Walker, an Australian amateur porn star with a penchant for costume play, portrays one of Craster’s wives in Season 4.

Not in this season: Maisie Dee Dee, who played one of Petyr Baelish’s prostitutes in Season 2, and Sahara Knight, who appeared in one of the show’s most controversial (and popular) sex scenes alongside Esme Bianco.

QUICK TAKES

Kirstie Alley, who reportedly gained 30 pounds in the past six months, has again signed on to be a spokeswoman for Jenny Craig.

A Broadway musical inspired by Tupac Shakur songs will star singer Saul Williams.

A jury awarded comedian George Wallace $1.3 million for a leg injury he suffered while performing in Las Vegas.
