Kit Harrington, the actor who plays Jon Snow on Game of Thrones, showed off his range in a hilarious faux audition tape aired on Jimmy Kimmel Live Monday. Starting with Cersei Lannister, Harrington tweaked her famous line to: “When you play the game of thrones, you win or you die – now if you’ll excuse me, I need to have sex with my brother.”
While the producers were ready to dismiss Harrington immediately, the actor persisted. He toddled back on his knees as Arya Stark, donned a burlap sack and howled “Hodor!” and, as Daenerys Targaryen, asked Khal Drogo if he was interested in seeing her “dragons” before flashing an anatomically correct chest plate.
With the producers far from impressed and all his options seemingly exhausted, Harrington returned for one last audition. “I’ve been accepted into the Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry,” Harrington cracked while wearing a Harry Potter costume.
Game of Thrones returns to HBO for its seventh season July 16th.
