Is Christopher Eccleston Joining 'Game of Thrones'?

Now here's one casting rumor to get many a 'Game of Thrones' fan all a-quiver: Christopher Eccleston is said to be eyeing a major role in Season 2.
According to Blastr.com, the 'Doctor Who' and 'Elizabeth' star could be in the running to play the late King Robert's younger brother, the oft-mentioned but as yet unseen Lord Stannis Baratheon.
The brooding Stannis is, according to Lord Eddard Stark, the rightful heir to the Iron Throne and the Seven Kingdoms.
Production on the second season of 'GoT' is slated to get underway in Northern Ireland at the end of July and producers are continuing to cast roles. Last week 'The Tudors' star Natalie Dormer was confirmed as Margaery Tyrell.
