Coldplay to star in Game of Thrones: The Musical spoof – watch trailer

Game of Thrones: The Musical will air in full on NBC for US version of Red Nose Day

Coldplay have teamed up with actor Peter Dinklage to make spoof comedy Game of Thrones: The Musical for NBC’s Red Nose Day broadcast.

A new trailer shows Dinklage, who plays Tyrion Lannister in the US show, singing about the show’s tendency to kill off many characters. Watch the spoiler-packed trailer below.

Game of Thrones: The Musical will air as part of the fundraiser for children living in poverty, on US channel NBC, on May 21. Cast members including Emilia Clarke and Kit Harrington will also appear on the special.

Coldplay drummer Will Champion previously made a cameo on the show in 2013. The drummer appeared in a rowdy banquet scene and did not have any lines.

Champion isn’t the only rock star to pop up on Game Of Thrones. Snow Patrol’s Gary Lightbody made an appearance as a soldier in an episode that aired in April.

Coldplay recently launched an online timeline documenting the history of the group, including unseen video of the band’s rehearsal for Live 8 with Richard Ashcroft in 2005. Entitled ‘The Coldplay Timeline’, the new feature on their official website Coldplay.com charts their first rehearsal in 1998 right up to the present day.

The band also posted a note confirming they are currently recording new LP ‘A Head Full Of Dreams’. Singer Chris Martin previously announced the name of their seventh studio effort last December.
