Game of Thrones star Thomas Brodie-Sangster, who plays Jojen Reed in the HBO series, said he'd like a crack at playing the show's most-hated character, Joffrey Baratheon.

“I think Joffrey would be quite fun, a nasty, nasty person. I like the way he’s young and a teenage [expletive] in power," Brodie-Sangster said during a press conference in London.
Joffrey's nastiness is expected to reach new heights in the upcoming fourth season, as he grows older and his mother's influence over him lessens, the Independent reported.

Joffrey, played by Jack Gleeson, is so hated by fans of the show, an Internet roast for the character was held in December.

Gleeson has said he plans to quit acting after his role on Game of Thrones is over. With the frequency the show kills off its characters, it may be sooner than we think.
