By Odin's Beard! This is too cool.

Thor himself turned up in Spain, to do a cameo on GAME OF THRONES.


Loved hearing that he's a fan of the show. After all, I've been a Mets fan since 1962. Hell, one of the highlights was my life was attending Game 6 of the 1986 World Series. We had seats in the fourth row on the first base side, just beyond the dugout, and close enough to the field to count the stitches on the ball as it rolled between Bill Buckner's legs.

My dream, of course, is that Noah and his teammates will lead the Mets to another series, and give me a memory to go with '86 and '69.

(The Mets don't win often, but when they do, it is glorious).

Great Odin's Raven!
That's a man. I hope the Met's can afford him when his rookie deal is up; or my Angels. :D

Even gods can die in Westeros, so watch out Noah.

A Valyrian warhammer would be super cool.

If the Mets win a World Series ..
If the mets win the World Series this year, you should write syndergaard into the book and have him sit the throne!! I understand the majority of your readers would hate the twist of a ny mets pitcher and his army of deGrom, Harvey, Matz, infielders,outfielders, relief pitching and possibly Tebow invading Westeros and taking the throne. But us Met fans would absolutely love it!

Season 8 Cameo?
I've enjoyed spotting cameos in the show – Noah Syndergaard is the first athlete, I believe, after many musicians have appeared in the show.

But I was wondering, will we ever get the cameo of all cameos – Mr. George R. R. Martin himself?

I know you had a cameo in the original pilot, but were cut when HBO reshot most of the episode. I also read that you had hoped to play a casualty at the Red Wedding, but couldn't find the time to fly to Belfast for filming.

Any chance we'll see you in the background in Season 8? Thanks!

Re: Season 8 Cameo?
Anything is possible.

I wanted to be a severed head on the wall in season one, but turns out those severed heads are expensive to make. Instead we bought a Big Box o' Used Heads, and got in all sorts of trouble.

Re: Season 8 Cameo?
Wouldn't all boxes of heads be "used" heads? ;-)

I read that showrunners used George W. Bush wax heads because those were cheaper and in plentiful supply. As much as I would like to see a Trump head on a spike, he doesn't deserve the decapitated homage. It's an honor to be killed by you.

I do hope to see a cameo of you on the show before it's all done.

It was because of a certain head was it not.

GRRM already made his cameo as 'Maester Martin' in the GoT computer RPG:

All these cameos
Wasn't there rumors of Connor McGregor as well, or were they false? Either way, I hope his cameo involves launching a catapult. That would be one hell of a pitch haha.

Who would be your "dream guest/cameo"? Any famous actor, Tom Brady? :-)

Say it here, maybe they're fans of the show and like the idea!

Well, Barack Obama would be pretty exciting.

And actually, he IS a fan of the show.

As a die hard Mets fan as well as someone who has read the entire A Song of Ice and Fire series five times, this makes me so happy!!!!!!!

All that time you lived in Chicago George and I'm glad you didn't become a Cubs or Sox fan! I've lived here for 9 years now but I will always bleed Cardinal red, having grown up in Southern Illinois.

Amazin Mets
Did you ever see MIB3 where the Amazins feature? It also deals with a unicorn and time travel and coincidences. Just curious. My dad's a Mets fan too, btw.

Re: Amazin Mets
No, but I love the movie FREQUENCY with its Mets references.

Me: CHRIS HEMSWORTH IS DOING A CAMEO ON GAME OF THR--oh. Different Thor. *laughs* :)
Mar. 7th, 2017 10:45 am (UTC)
The article describes him as the star of the Marvel THOR movies, which is obviously incorrect.

Too cool! I know it's only a cameo but I could see him as Aurane Waters. I think he's a hilarious character :)

I am a born and bred Mets fan too. My mom was a Mets fanatic and she infected me too. I remember coming home from school during the 1969 series and they had won a game. My mother had every radio and TV on in the house and she was running from room to room, screaming like a banshee. Sort of an indelible memory.

He was a jerk when the Royals kept hitting the first pitch of everyone. I liked the attitude he showed throwing at our leadoffs head. Good Competitor. With that said glad we paid the Iron price for our title. Let's go Royals!

If he went to Spain to film his part, I doubt he's playing a member of the Nights Watch. Not a lot of snow in Spain. But, this Mets fan will be looking for his appearance. I hope they have him throw something very hard at a bad guy.
