FIRST LOOK: 'Game Of Thrones' Actor Is Unmissable In 'Hunted'

There's never a shortage of spy dramas on the big or small screen, but even so, the Cinemax thriller "Hunted" is worth seeking out.

The drama reaches its midpoint this week; this post contains an exclusive clip from the fourth of "Hunted's" eight episodes, which airs on Fri., Nov. 9 at 10 p.m. ET.

"GoT's" Balon Greyjoy) is terrific as Jack Turner, a very wealthy Londoner who aims to become even richer by winning an enormous construction contract for a dam halfway around the world. Given that billions are at stake, Jack and his cronies are doing everything they can to make sure they land the contract -- and that's where Byzantium, Sam's employer, comes in.
