While the casting for the Game of Thrones show is nothing short of absolute perfection, it’s common to sometimes wonder what our favorite characters would look and act like if they had been cast with different celebrities and actors. Here are 17 funny instances where some of our favorite characters get a makeover, sometimes a sex change, and possibly a change in behaviors.
Jack Nicholson as Tyrion Lannister
Everyone’s favorite jokester. Though Peter Dinklage is excellent at depicting Tyrion, one can only visualize the way Jack would carry the character to where he is by the end of season 7.
Rowan Atkinson as Daario Naharis
Daario would be a totally different person if Rowan Atkinson had been playing him. Imagine a Mr. Bean type character, full with embarrassed moments and humorous noises.
Nicolas Cage as Ned Stark
The internet’s favorite actor to poke fun at – Nicolas Cage. Just imagine to see him saying “Winter is Coming” National Treasure style.
Donald Trump as Tyrion Lannister
Whatever your political standpoint is or how much you may detest or like Donald Trump, him as Tyrion has to make you giggle. He’d be a ideal candidate for playing him in the prior seasons, before Tyrion became a more mature character.
Albert Einstein as The Mountain
Brains…. Both the now-undead Mountain and Albert Einstein love brains! The Mountain loves to smash them, and Einstein uses his for science.
Hillary Clinton as Daenerys Targaryen
Love her or hate her, Hillary as Daenerys would have been a splendid performance. They both make exceptionally remarkable expressions and they’re equally dominant, rule-worthy women.
Nicolas Cage as Sansa Stark, Laurence Fishburne Morpheus Sitting on the Iron Throne
Though Nicolas Cage would make a superb Lady of the North, particularly during her whiny years, we don’t think that’d be a good fit. However, just imagine Morpheus (Laurence Fishburne) sitting on the Iron Throne, offering blue or red pills to Westeros.
Christopher Walken as the Night King
If Christopher Walken dances as the Night King in the similar way he did for Fatboy Slim’s “Weapon of Choice”, while flaunting his weapon of choice (icy spear for the win), probably Westeros would bow down to him.
Scarlett Johansson and Jude Law as Daenerys Targaryen and Jorah Mormont
The stunning Scarlett Johansson would probably smile more often than Daenerys does, and Jude Law would make a very attractive Jorah. Who knows, Dany and Jorah might have been a thing if he had been cast for it…
Meryl Streep and Woody Allen as Selyse and Stannis Baratheon
The Devil Wears…. Fiery guilt and braids? Meryl Streep perhaps wouldn’t have let Stannis burn their daughter alive. But, then again, Woody Allen’s Stannis would’ve probably married his own daughter. Or at least have adopted another one and then married her.
Sharon Stone on the Iron Throne
Here we have the renowned Sharon Stone scene from Basic Instinct where she does her cop interrogation without wearing any undies. Envision that if Cersei didn’t get things her way as she usually does, she’d perhaps make use of the same sort of… eye catching endeavors to express what is on her mind.
Donald Trump as Daenerys Targaryen
Now, this… Would have been interesting to see. We know that Emilia Clarke has the best eyebrow expressions in the show, but Trump Daenerys would definitely have the best fishy lips, and the best army. Huge Unsullied army.
Clint Eastwood as Daenerys Targaryen
Badass Clint Eastwood, Gran Torino style, asking people “where are my dragons?!” would have been precious. The amount of ass-kicking would also double what it presently is from Daenerys.
Will Smith and Hillary Clinton as Jon Snow
Two very different approaches to Jon Snow – Will Smith and Hillary Clinton. One is too cheerful, while the other might go Prince of Belair on everyone.
Nicolas Cage as Jon Snow
Even if Nicolas Cage played Jon Snow, he’d still know nothing. Still better than imagining Cage as Sansa Stark, however.
Rowan Atkinson as Daenerys Targaryen
Definitely not gorgeous or elegant or fierce. Just comical sounds, faces, and debacle.
Donald Trump as Joffrey Baratheon
Joffrey Baratheon – the most despised King in the Seven Kingdoms. Fans hated him. Characters hated him. Nothing else needs to be said about having Trump play him rather than Jack Gleeson.
