AceShowbiz - Peter Dinklage has teamed up with Coldplay for a "Game of Thrones" musical parody. In a preview of NBC's Red Nose Day special, the actor sings a song written by the Chris Martin-fronted band about dead characters on the hit HBO series.
"Remember Ned Stark/ He was a lot of fun/ But he didn't make it past season one!" the Emmy-winning actor croons. "Robert Baratheon was part of that crew/ But he never made it to season two/ The King of the North was cool, you said/ Another favorite that ended up dead!"
He continues, "You thought Joffrey had to survive/ He ain't in the credits for season five," before boasting about his character Tyrion Lannister, "Baby you know I'm the man for all seasons/ Characters get cut for various reasons/ Some people's parts just ain't very long/ But not me, I'm still going strong!"
"Game of Thrones: The Musical" sketch will air as part of NBC's Red Nose Day telecast on Thursday, May 21 at 8 P.M. PT/ET. The Red Nose Day benefit is "dedicated to raising money for children and young people living in poverty by simply having fun and making people laugh."
Besides Dinklage, Anna Kendrick will appear in an "Indiana Jones" sketch. A clip of the sketch has also landed online.
