Is Henry Cavill joining House of the Dragon?

Despite Henry Cavill’s extensive fantasy background, he won’t be joining the Game of Thrones spin-off anytime soon. Cavill responded to the rumor in an interview with Josh Horowitz of the Happy Sad Confused podcast.

“To be fair, when I was watching House of the Dragon, I was like “I feel like a lot of these guys could make really good Witchers…” I think it would be cool to be in Westeros, I really do. I don’t think there’s a place for me in there, though.”
