Come on, admit it. You’d totally pay to see this on Broadway.
Chris Martin and his Coldplay bandmates jokingly created Game of Thrones: The Musical for a Red Nose Day sketch, but the glimpses we saw of Peter Dinklage, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau and Emilia Clarke carrying a tune made us wish it was real.
“This is the best idea we’ve ever had,” Martin insists.
But the Game of Thrones cast doesn’t agree.
“One word that springs to mind when I’m thinking of this project is Titanic,” says Clarke, who plays Daenerys Targaryen. “But not in terms of the successful movie; in terms of the unsuccessful boat.”
But then Kit Harington (Jon Snow) shows up and sings “Wild Thing.”
And the cast suddenly has a change of heart.
Clarke rocks a reggae tune, “Rastafarian Targaryen.”
Coster-Waldau (Jaime Lannister) croons a ballad, “Closer to Home.”
Dinklage (Tyrion Lannister) sings a song called “A Man for All Seasons (Still Goin’ Strong).”

All Coldplay needs is author George R.R. Martin’s permission. “He’s going to go absolutely crazy,” Martin predicts.
And he’s right.
