Jonathan Rhys-Meyers Joins 'Vikings' for Season 5

The hit History Channel series Vikings has been renewed for a fifth season and it was just announced that Jonathan Rhys-Meyers will join the cast!

The upcoming fifth season will get 20 episodes, just like the fourth season that is currently airing.

“The brilliant writing and depth of historical research and authenticity brought to the screen by Michael Hirst paired with our talented cast and crew, has made this series one of the most compelling, visually stunning historical dramas on television,” an exec for History Channel said. “Vikings has raided the hearts of audiences and we are thrilled that Jonathan Rhys Myers will become a bigger part of the History family after his incredible performance in our upcoming production of Roots.”

Also starring on Vikings are Travis Fimmel, Clive Standen, Katheryn Winnick, Alexander Ludwig, and Alyssa Sutherland.

    I love the show, have watched it twice now, but to call it authentic and claim historical research is beyond stretching it. It’s good for what it is, an entertaining historical action/drama. Granted he did say “depth of historical research”, which they very well may have done, that implies that research is reflected in the show. I will agree with the rest of his statement. I hope Jonathan becomes a regular, I think his intense style is perfect for that show.

    He’s finally picked a role that suits his acting style! Let’s hope he stays sober and focused throughout the filming! One piece of advice, Johnny, do something with your teeth! Close up photos show stains and decay!! Please visit the dentist! Zoom in on his pics and you’ll see what I’m seeing

    I will start watching VIKINGS now. I love Jonathan.
    Michael Savage on his radio talk show spoke about the VIKINGS show & how masculinity is shunned in our 21st Century. It was a great analogy!
