If there were two things in pop culture that I would never put together, it would have to be Game of Thrones and Coldplay. It just… doesn’t seem to fit. And yet, here we are, living in a world where Coldplay wrote a Game of Thrones musical for the charity broadcast Red Nose Day, and they even got Peter Dinklage to star in it!
If you’re not familiar with Red Nose Day, it’s been happening in the UK for years, and this is the first year the US is doing it. Basically, it’s a ton of comedic sketches featuring a ton of celebrities that come together in an effort to raise money for charities that help alleviate poverty. It’s a good time for all, and there are some pretty big names participating this year.
First, here’s the preview for the GoT musical:
Looks pretty amazing, right? The broadcast will air tonight at 8pm EST on NBC and will include appearances by Will Ferrell, Reese Witherspoon, Jodie Foster, Neil Patrick Harris, Pharrell Williams, Liam Neeson, Nick Offerman, Elizabeth Banks, Yvette Nicole Brown, Benedict Cumberbatch, Helen Mirren, and Ian McKellen.
