Watch Kit Harington Indulge Leslie Jones’ Game of Thrones Fantasies in Promo for This Week’s SNLPhoto by Rosalind O'Connor/NBC Comedy News Kit Harington
Kit Harington is hosting Saturday Night Live this weekend, and it appears the cast’s biggest Game of Thrones fan Leslie Jones had a bit of fun with him before shooting the show. In a promo sketch released on YouTube on Wednesday, Jones and a reluctant Harington recreate a series of Thrones scenes in order to fulfill Jones’ fantasies about the show.
Jones can be seen holding the door as Hodor, pretending to break down the Wall with a toy dragon and holding court as Daenerys Targaryen while an increasingly annoyed Harington is forced to participate. When he tries to leave, Jones recreates the famous Walk of Atonement scene with Harington filling in for Lena Headey’s Cersei Lannister. It would be a pretty convincing recreation if Jones didn’t force-feed Harington a doughnut partway through.
Harington rose to worldwide fame in his role as Jon Snow in Game of Thrones, the final season of which premieres Sunday, April 14 on HBO. He hosts SNL this Saturday, April 6, with musical guest Sara Bareilles. Watch the full promo below.
