Jason Momoa Facts
If you’re a fan of the hit HBO fantasy television series “Game of Thrones,” you probably already know (and adore) Jason Momoa. If you haven’t seen “Game of Thrones” because you don’t want to pay for premium cable channels and are therefore haven’t heard Momoa’s name before now, rest assured – that’s about to change in a big way.
You see, Momoa was recently cast as the DC Comics superhero Aquaman. And if there is one thing we love around this blog, its ridiculously hot superheroes!
He will make his debut alongside Ben Affleck and mega-hottie Henry Cavill in “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” in 2016, before headlining his own “Aquaman” movie and co-starring in two “Justice League” movies at some point in the future. Out of the laundry list of reasons why Jason Momoa is one of the sexiest actors alive, there are ten in particular that you’re definitely going to want to know about.
Let’s begin by giving you a thumbnail sketch of his background so you know more about this hunky male celebrity. FYI – this guys is massively built – as in hot monster size! Check out his stats.

1) He Isn’t Afraid to Do Let It All Hang
Whether you’ve seen “Game of Thrones” or have heard about it, you’re probably aware that it’s become famous in part for the copious amounts of female nudity that seem to grace every episode. Did you know that the show has also featured scantily clad (or completely nude) men on a regular basis, as well, and that Jason Momoa has proudly been among them?
Though he’s no longer a member of the “Game of Thrones” cast, these scenes have no doubt secured more than a few Blu-ray purchases in their day to be sure. The word is the guy is massive!
2) He’s About to Make Aquaman Badass
Throughout history, Aquaman has traditionally been seen as one of the sillier characters in the DC Comics pantheon. After all, how cool can a guy really be when his main power is that he can talk to fish? If you ask Jason Momoa, however, the answer is “absolutely the coolest, baddest dude that you’ve ever seen.”
Momoa’s take on Aquaman is one of an underwater warrior and a king, similar in concept to what Marvel Studios is doing with their “Thor” character – only with a lot more fish, and probably a few dolphins, too. If this guy is sexy enough to make Aquaman cool, he can do absolutely anything.
3) He Hasn’t Forgotten the Little People
With Momoa’s career blowing up the way that it has been, you’d think that the little people would be “beneath” him by now. After all, he’s about to star in three of the biggest films of all time – he probably doesn’t have time for your average fan.
And yet somehow, one of his sexiest qualities manages to be that he still makes time for even the smaller science fiction and entertainment conventions, making regular appearances all over the country. He even appeared in Cleveland, Ohio of all places – that’s how dedicated he is to his fans. In this way, is similar to other celebs that cultivate and grow their fanbase.
4) He Can Do It All
If you thought that Jason Momoa was JUST a sexy actor, you’d be wrong – he’s also a sexy writer, director and movie producer. Momoa’s first film that he wrote and directed was released in 2014 and was called “Road to Paloma,” proving himself to be something of a triple threat when it comes to the entertainment world.
5) Jason Momoa Scar (Part I)
One of the absolute sexiest qualities about Jason Momoa is the scar that he has on his face. He didn’t always have it and it isn’t present in his early career, but if you’ve seen him from roughly “Game of Thrones” onward you’re no doubt aware of how one simple scar took an already sexy man and made him somehow even more attractive.
6) Jason Momoa Scar His Scar (Part II)
Speaking of that scar, the only thing sexier than the fact that he has it at all is the way that he got it. You see, it appears that Jason Momoa isn’t afraid to fight when the situation calls for it. He got the scar back in 2008 after being slashed in the face with a broken beer glass at a bar in Hollywood.
Let’s face the facts: essentially the only criteria for being on cult TV series “Baywatch” from the 1980s to the early 2000s was that you had to be unforgivably sexy, pretty much at all times. It makes sense then that Momoa starred as Jason Ioane in the television film “Baywatch: Hawaiian Wedding.”
8) He Married His Boyhood Crush
If you grew up in the 1980s, you (like Jason) probably had a crush on Lisa Bonet from “The Cosby Show.” You may also have fallen in love with her after her star making performance in the John Cusack film “High Fidelity.” Momoa shares those sentiments and took Lisa Bonet off the market when they got married in 2007.
He even admitted in an interview with Katie Couric that he had a crush on her from the time he was a young boy. Somehow he manages to be sexy and adorable all rolled into one!
9) He’s Also Hilarious
There’s a theory in Hollywood that if you’re a good-looking and attractive actor, you can’t possibly be funny at the same time. Jason takes sexiness to new heights and proves this theory wrong at the same time with many comedic appearances in shows like “Drunk History.” Here’s a video of Jason Momoa on Jimmy Kimmel. Look how big this dude is!
10) He Was a Model
If you ever looked at Jason Momoa and thought “damn… he should have been a model,” international designer Takeo Kobayashi had the same idea. Many people don’t realize that long before he ever picked up a sword on “Game of Thrones,” he was actually one of the most successful young models of the late 1990s.
