10 Movies and TV Shows 'Game of Thrones' Characters Need To Be In

By Rebecca Pahle | Seriously Random Lists | February 24, 2014 | Comments ()

pompeii kit harington.jpg

This weekend Kit Harington took a jaunt to ancient times for Pompeii, which is basically Titanic, but with a volcano. I didn’t actually see it. The reviews were bad, and I watched both Endless Love and Winter’s Tale for you last week, guys. There are limits. But seeing Jon Snow’s abs all over the Internet did get me thinking: What movies and TV shows should other Game of Thrones characters venture over to? Not actors. That option doesn’t allow me to nerd out over Brienne of Tarth nearly enough.

littlefinger - the walking dead.jpg
Petyr “Littlefinger” Baelish - The Walking Dead
Why Westeros’ resident slimy weasel in this zombiepalooza? Simple. The Walking Dead has a really high body count, and I need to see this frakker die, like yesterday. Acceptable movies include 300 and The Raid: Redemption.

Robb and Talisa Stark - You’ve Got Mail
On the flip side, the happy Stark newlyweds belong in a happy romcom where they can be starcrossed lovers and nobody dies.

Arya Stark - The Hunger Games
Katniss is good with a bow and arrow and all, but I think we know who’d win The Hunger Games if Little Miss Murder were in the mix. Arya would also be right at home in Léon: The Professional.

Daenerys Targaryen: Pete’s Dragon
“Why are you singing? Have you no homeland to reclaim?! No enemies to burn alive? Dracarys!”

stannis-terms of endearment.jpg
Stannis Baratheon: Terms of Endearment
I can’t imagine Stannis, Mr. I-Won’t-Write-In-My-Brother’s-Obituary-That-I-Loved-Him-Because-I-Didn’t, would do particularly well in a touchy-feel family drama like Terms of Endearment. It’d be hilarious, though. All the tooth-grinding. “Stannis, I never truly appreciated my daughter until I started to lose her!” “Yeah, I felt the same way about my brother Renly. Except instead of cancer, he was killed by a shadow demon baby demon that I sent to assassinate him. And it was for the good of the realm, so I really don’t regret it at all. But other than that, exactly the same.”

Brienne of Tarth: Xena: Warrior Princess
I’m not suggesting that Brienne actually be Xena, because the very thought of someone other than Lucy Lawless in that role simply does not compute. That said, there were plenty of dudes in that show who needed their asses kicked, and I’m pretty sure A Song of Ice and Fire’s sole lady knight would have no problem carving out a niche for herself. She can bring Maege Mormont along. They’ll have fun.

tywin downton abbey.jpg
Tywin Lannister: Downton Abbey
The Lannister patriarch needs to be in a show where he can slap some fools down. Is there any better option than Downton? Any time Lord Grantham is about to make a stupid decision (aka ALL THE TIME) or Daisy gets melodramatic, he can just glare them into submission… and, if it comes to it, march into the front hall and take over the estate. Hey, Grantham owes him money. The Lannisters always pay their debts.

cersei reality.jpg
Cersei Lannister - Toddlers & Tiaras
Or basically any reality show, at least the ones that don’t require you to have talent in a specific area. Survivor. The Amazing Race. Cersei is drunk and angry all the time, and her default mode is disdain for all the peons who think they can do better than her. We’d see our first reality show homicide with her in the cast.

samwell tarly - lotr.jpg
Samwell Tarly: The Lord of the Rings
Never mind, he’s already there.

Rebecca is Team Dragonstone. All hail Stannis the Mannis, the Besteros in Westeros.

Comments Are Welcome, Bigots and Trolls Are Not

  • Sassy Pikachu

    I would LOVE to see Lord Lannister in Downton Abbey. It would be glorious and it would really help me wipe away the memory of watching Charles Dance reciting excerpts from "50 Shades of Gray".

  • Ron Harper

    Joffrey in Wolf of Wallstreet. Picturing him snorting coke from prostitute ass. Bronn can join too.

  • Daenerys Targaryen in TROGDOR: THE BURNINATOR.

  • e jerry powell

    Oh. Is that why Kit Harrington was doing a guest spot on @midnight, then?

    Now it almost makes sense.

  • $78742978

    "Cersei is drunk and angry all the time." Best and most insightful character description ever.

  • Three_nineteen

    Ser Jorah has already visited Downton and smacked a bunch of people around. It was glorious.

  • vic

    I think Cersei should be on Arrested Development.

  • loo shag brolley

    Theon Greyjoy and Ramsey Snow on Couples Therapy.

  • Sara_Tonin00

    How about Sansa and Margaery (or however GRRM spells it) in The Magic Garden?

  • loo shag brolley

    What in the world is THIS?

  • Sara_Tonin00

    Precious childhood memories. Look, it's no H R Pufnstuf, but it had its moments...its magical, musical moments


  • loo shag brolley

    This is as endearing as it is odd.

  • Maddy

    I could watch Cersei in any reality show getting drunk and bitching for the rest of my life

  • emmalita

    I want Cersei and Rust Cohle to philosophize to each other while drinking. Rust would win the talking part, but Cersei would just fuck someone into killing him.

  • ZbornakSyndrome

    I can totally see Cersi entering Joffrey in a pageant, swilling wine and screaming "SPARKLE BABY SPARKLE! YOU BETTER SASSY THAT WALK, BOY..."

  • BWeaves

    Tyrion and Jaime = Little People, Big World.

  • Guest

    Brienne and Jamie = Little People, Big World too?

  • BWeaves

    Brienne and Tyrion = The Iron Giant.
    Hound and Tyrion
    Moutain and Tyrion
    Hodor and Tyrion

  • Guest

    Tyrion Lannister in House of Cards.

    Either as Spacey or the guy who takes Underwood down. Or A House of Cards style show where Tyrion as the Hand becomes the King of Westeros.

    *Sansa would make a terrific Claire.

  • BWeaves

    Cercei for Claire. She's cold hearted. Sansa is not.

  • Guest

    Then Tyrion would be married to his sister...

    I suggested Sansa because of Erin S's post of above. While it may not be the happiest scenario it would give her a back bone and the ability to wield some power for herself and over others.

  • BWeaves

    Ah, see, I'm thinking of Tyrion for whoever brings Underwood down. Maybe Tywin for underwood and Cercei for Claire. OK, that's still incest.

  • alannaofdoom

    100% agree with 100% of this, to the extent that I'm starting to wonder if I have a mental clone out there. Brain-doppelganger? Doppelbrainer? Uh, what were we talking about again?

  • BlackRabbit

    If you turned to a life of crime, you'd be dopplegangsters.

  • Laura Darch

    Stannis the Mannis XD <3 me some Stannis!

  • Bert_McGurt

    Also, Hodor - The Princess Bride.

  • Bert_McGurt

    Joffrey Lannister - It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia

  • For the win.

  • TacoBellRey

    Make him sleep in the crevice. Also, the Lannisters are basically fancy McPoyles.

  • barlowjk

    I cannot upvote this enough.

  • Billybob

    Also, I want Hodor in The Apprentice (which is still a thing in Britain). All the other conniving little shitweasels would be shouting at each other, and then the Angry Gnome would shut them all up and be all: Hodor, we haven't heard much from you. How would you say this task went?

    And Hodor would look to his left, at his own team, and then look to the right, at the opposing team, and he would think for a long moment and then tell Lord Sugar: "Hodor."

  • Erin S

    For the love of God, just put Sansa in something happy. Like, some Nickelodeon Kids show where everyone spends their time frolicking with animals and the sun has a smiley face and there are mountains made out of powdered sugar and rubber ducks. Tyrion can come, and have the respect and adoration of everyone. Please?

  • Guest

    Adventure Time!

  • alannaofdoom

    I want Sansa to be in the little snippet of that episode of "Popular" where Nicole is walking down the hallway and people are just handing her presents and bouquets of flowers.

  • BWeaves

    Sansa needs the Doctor to swoop in and take her away in his TARDIS.

  • Billybob

    I've never watched anything with "Real Housewives" in it, but if The Real Housewives of Westeros were to become a real thing, I would watch every episode just to see Cersei judging everybody.

  • John W

    Arya in Hunger Games would be the shit.

    Varys in either Elementary or Sherlock as a new foe, The Spider, for Sherlock Holmes.

    Hodor in True Detective as Martin Hart's new partner. Their conversations while driving would be awesome:

    MH: "So who do you like as the Yellow King?"

    H: "Hodor."

    MH: "Look there's no need to be a wise ass."

    H: "Hodor."

  • Ron Harper

    Varys as Hercule Poirot. Just add mustache

  • Hmm, my first reaction to Varys in Sherlock was, 'Holy crap, that's a great thought.' My second thought is I'm not as sure. He's a fantastic character for something, but not truly a villain/bad guy. I started thinking about where he'd be super interesting as that constantly-scheming, duplicitous go-between that he is, and I thought of House of Cards and Orphan Black and Luther. Call the writers!

  • BWeaves

    Yes, to Varys in Elementary or Sherlock as The Spider. Perfect.

  • Fabius_Maximus

    Shouldn't it be "Stannis the Menace"?

  • Zen

    Team Targaryen! All hail the Silver Queen!

  • Aaron Schulz

    Fire and Blood!

  • Pants-are-a-must

    Tyrion for Hannibal!

  • Kris

    I'd want Daenerys to pop up in the latest Godzilla remake. That, or Pacific Rim 2.

  • Ashley Nicholas
