Often heralded as the “American Tolkien,” George R.R. Martin recently sat down with MTV Geek and hashed it out over which of his characters from A Song of Ice and Fire could beat J.R.R. Tolkien‘s characters from the Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit. It’s GRR vs JRR and features showdowns between Jaime and Aragorn, Smaug and Balerion, Frodo and Tyrion, and of course the Sean Bean round, Ned Stark vs Boromir.
SPOILER WARNING! There are some comments made that could spoil the upcoming season of Game of Thrones. Just an FYI.

I like how thoughtful he was with his choices, even after his initial reluctance to play. I’ve got to say I agree with him on each pick, how about you?
