Thinking more about this, it occurs to me that ROP could use someone of Jeremy Iron's stature. George Lucas was smart of enough to cast Alec Guinness, and Peter Jackson knew what he was doing by brining in Ian McKellen. Both Lucas & Jackson knew that these fantastical stories needed an actor of gravitas to anchor the whole thing. Even Star Trek TNG had Patrick Stewart, and I think people underestimate how much credibility Sean Bean brought to Game of Thrones early on. In fact if you read about the making of GOT, Bean was brought on specifically for this reason. Who is that person in ROP? I don't know man, without serious actors, and without a very grounded production design, the show could very easily slip into generic TV fantasy, no matter the pedigree of the source material.
