A scene from HBO's 'Game of Thrones'

Calling all bearded Northern Irish men, Hollywood needs you. With filming on the second season of "Game Of Thrones" set to run from July to December in Belfast's Paint Hall studios, its time to cast the warring armies.

The hit fantasy adventure series will portray the second book of the "A Song of Ice and Fire" series of novels by George R.R. Martin.

The first series introduced us to two worlds, the dark north which is filmed in Northern Ireland, and the sunny south which is filmed in Malta.

On Monday, open auditions for bearded extras will be held in Belfast for men prepared to grow their hair and beards from now until January 2012.

Of course, they should be strong and fit, since they're playing soldiers and archers.

If you're in town and game for a role, then the casting call is being held at the Holiday Inn, Ormeau Avenue from 11 AM until 7PM. Best of luck!
