It's fair to say that Game of Thrones fans can't imagine their favourite characters with different actors, but there's something to be said for considering the alternatives. In a new sketch for The Late Late Show with James Corden, the late night host and Andrew Garfield show us exactly what could have been — and we're suitably intrigued.
Corden and the Under the Silver Lake actor audition for everyone in the HBO fantasy-drama series, from Ned Stark to a choking King Joffrey to both Daenerys and Cersei Lannister. For some reason, the casting director is deeply unimpressed with their efforts, even when Corden is willing to "go the extra mile" and castrate himself for the job. (Honestly, he's almost too eager — HBO doesn't pay that much, Corden.) At one point, the two even bare it all to get the role of anyone who goes nude in the show. Watch the sketch above, but be warned, you won't be able to see Game of Thrones the same way again.
