Cage of Thrones: Nicolas Cage As Every Game Of Thrones Character Because… The Internet

What’s the one thing Game Of Thrones, the biggest show on TV, is missing? Yup, you guessed it, cult actor Nicolas Cage. Luckily, Reddit user CarlosDanger100 has corrected that oversight. He’s made excellent use of advanced Photoshop skills in order to see what the HBO series would have looked like had Cage been cast in almost every single role. Thankfully, it doesn’t disappoint…

1
Jon Snow

Jon Snow

He’s dead! He’s not dead! Quite frankly, when Jon Snow‘s got a cheesy grin like this, who cares whether he’s dead or not?

2
Hodor

Hodor

Imagine Nicolas Cage trying to put his dark and brooding spin on Hodor. There’s only so much you can do with a character only capable of saying his own name. But hey, it’s Nicolas Cage, he’d make it work.

Brienne of Tarth

Brienne of Tarth

If the only thing you take from this image of Cage as Brienne of Tarth is how much he needs to peroxide his hair, then we’ll consider our job well and truly done.

Littlefinger

Littlefinger

The tash! Look at the tash! Who knew ol’ Nick could somehow even make a medieval brothel kingpin (Littlefinger) look like a ’70s ranch hand. Is there nothing this man can’t do?

5
Varys ‘The Spider’

Varys 'The Spider'

There’s quiet despair behind that toothy grin, as Cage contemplates having his knackers lopped off to play Varys ‘The Spider’.

6
Tywin Lannister

Tywin Lannister

Charles Dance (Tywin Lannister) might rock the frantically receding look better than anyone, but Cage definitely shouldn’t be worried about getting older. He wears bald better than most.

7
Joffrey Lannister

Joffrey Lannister

This is quite possibly the only time we’ve glimpsed Joffrey Lannister‘s smug mug and not wanted to stamp all over it.

Stannis Baratheon

Stannis Baratheon

How would burning his own daughter alive have sat with the Wild At Heart actor? Well, judging by the cold, blank stare he’s flaunting here, very comfortably indeed. He’d make a great Stannis Baratheon.

Rob Stark

Rob Stark

Nick’s Rob Stark is nothing if not testament to his ability to make any hairstyle look fantastic. No matter how flouncy. Oh, and he can grow a mean beard too.

10
Arya Stark

Arya Stark

Wow. Arya Stark-Cage is one angry orphan. Also, what’s wrong with her ear? Looks nasty.

11
Cersei Lannister

Cersei Lannister

If anybody can nail Cersei Lannister‘s trademark look of haughty derision, it’s Nicolas Cage. Look at those eyebrows go!

Sansa Stark

Sansa Stark

Oh Sansa Stark, will life ever get better for you? It’s just one awful event after another isn’t it? The northern princess might have fared better had Cage snagged the role though. I mean, who could possibly be mean to that puppy-dog face?

13
Daenerys Targaryen

Daenerys Targaryen

Cheer up Nick, as Daenerys Targaryen you get to ride dragons, incinerate your enemies and command an entire slave army. What’s there to look sad about? Oh, wait…

14
Ser Jorah Mormont

Ser Jorah Mormont

Crikey, this one almost made us fall off our Iron Throne. Ser Jorah Mormont is one role we’re quite glad Cage missed out on…

15
Queen Margaery

Queen Margaery

Queen Margaery might not be doing too well in the series currently, but things could have been even worse. We’re guessing King Tommen might not have been so keen on tying the knot had she popped up with quite so stubbly a beard on wedding morning. Just a hunch.

16
Tyrion Lannister

Tyrion Lannister

Hey Tyrion Lannister, Marc Bolan called. He wants his wig back.

17
 

Ah, here we go. It’s Ned Stark, aka The Hand of the King, aka The Big Kahuna. So who wants to tell Cagey he doesn’t make it out of season one? Anyone?
