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.
Jennifer Lawrence with actress Lupita Nyong’o. I really want to know what they were talking about.
The SAG Awards is probably the most “meh” of all awards shows, am I right? Still, that’s no reason to ignore the fashion. Why? Because it’s fun. Here are some looks from the 20th Annual SAG Awards. Let’s go through and pick the looks for BEST, WORST, and WTF.
I don’t think Amanda Peet knows how to dress anymore. This is something I’d expect from Chloë Sevigny, and I don’t even know if she could pull this off. It’s just so…fug. I’m sorry, I know “fug” is played-out, but I cannot summon any other words to accurately describe this dour mess.
Peter Dinklage has been touted as an unconventional sex symbol by women for years, but especially since Game of Thrones debuted and he got to be all… well, sexy, I suppose. Plenty of women have been declaring their love for the actor – just visit the Dinklage tag on tumblr to see evidence of this – but Peter’s calling bullshit, saying none of you would sleep with him if it came down to it. Damn!
Playboy: You are aware that you’re a sex symbol, right? Some might even call you a DwILF.
Dinklage: DwILF, as in Dwarf I’d Like to Fuck? That’s very clever. Honestly, I think there’s an irony in all of this. I take it with a grain of salt. They’ll say, “Oh, he’s sexy,” but women still go for guys who are six-foot-two. It’s nice that people are thinking outside the box, but I don’t believe any of it for a minute.
Ha! He’s onto you shallow bitches (or something). Peter’s never been my bag – not because of his height, more for his gender – so I can’t attest to this, but what say you, ladies?
It should also be mentioned that Dink’s been married for eight years and had a baby with her in 2011, so he’s hardly out on the prowl to try this out himself (or so I would hope).
