With the Game of Thrones phenomenon in full swing once again, everyone seems to be jumping on the bandwagon to try and get some of the ratings. Jimmy Kimmel Live! is no exception. On his show last night, the talk show host played a skit called Game of Phones.
In the sketch, cast members of the hit series got together to advertise a service called Game of Phones, where viewers can call their favourite cast members and ask them questions related to their characters. This of could would be useful after such a long layoff to help people remember what happened before. Or to even get a little more into their character’s heads. Just don’t go expecting to get a correct answer all the time. Sophie Turner, Lena Headey, Maisie Williams and more all made appearances.
When asked who killed Joffrey, Sophie Turner responded “No one did, it turned out to be a bad clam.” Of course fans of the show know that it was actually Lady Olenna Tyrell. Lena Headey was asked what to do if someone has a crush on their brother, to which she responded “Nothing, it’s illegal and immoral to act on those feelings. On the other hand, if he’s hot, go for it.”
The sketch even had a fake phone number, and stated that the calls cost $2.99 per minute or $5.99 per raven. Perhaps the funniest part of the sketch is when it shows that the actors are contractually obligated to man the phones for 20 hours a week, and to “cut George R.R. Martin’s lawn.”
