Someone get Jon Snow out of the North, because that man should be stripping down on “Game of Thrones” much more often. Kit Harington shows off his toned body in the first look at the Paul W.S. Anderson film “Pompeii,” and now it makes sense why Ygritte was so excited to finally hook up with Harington’s character in “Game of Thrones” Season 3.
In “Pompeii,” Harington plays an enslaved Celtic gladiator who just happens to have a killer set of abs. The lucky lady in his life is Emily Browning‘s Cassia, a noblewoman who he falls in love with. Unfortunately for the pair, they fall for one another on the night that a volcanic eruption is set to destroy Pompeii.

Harington tells the site that the scene showcased is set early on in the film and has him facing off against “three masked gladiators.” “You see me display my skills quite early on,” Harington says. As for the revealing outfit, he adds, “It’s a costume I don’t actually wear for the rest of the film, but it’s an establishing one.”
“Pompeii’s” cast also includes Keifer Sutherland as a visiting Roman Senator, Jared Harris as Cassia’s father, Carrie-Anne Moss and Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje. The film is due in theaters on Feb. 21, 2014.
