Coldplay’s Will Champion joins Game of Thrones
Coldplay will tour Westeros and Essos next year — or, at least one-fourth of them will. As Entertainment Weekly reports, their drummer Will Champion has signed on to play, you guessed it, a drummer on the third season of HBO’s highly-coveted fantasy series, Game of Thrones.
As the magazine points out, he isn’t the first musician involved in the show. Snow Patrol singer Gary Lightbody will also cameo in what will be an explosive season that takes place in the first half of George R. Martin’s A Storm of Swords, aka the third installment of his A Song of Ice and Fire series.
Though, if you’re really hip on your Game of Thrones trivia, you’ll know the true musician on the show is Tyrion’s right-hand man, Bronn. Those that haven’t dabbled yet in his sleek UK mod-pop are just as foolish as King Joffrey’s court jester. Pssht.
Game of Thrones returns to HBO on March 31, 2013 and we’re all pretty much dying in the interim.
