This is a picture of all our old pals from Game of Thrones at Comic-Con 2011. WHO ARE THEY WEARING?! I don’t mean that in the Melissa Rivers sense (as a rule, assume that I never mean anything “in the Melissa Rivers sense”) but more like, uh, who are these people? It’s so hard to recognize everyone without the chain mail and the KNIVES STICKING OUT OF THEIR BACKS GET IT? Intrigue. For example: that woman on the left? The one who looks like she’s reading a small press book of jungle poetry at a Starbucks and gives you a gas face when you ask if she can plug your laptop cord into the plug beneath her seat (also of note: she is sitting on a chair Indian style, which is always a whole thing)? That lady? THAT IS QUEEN CERSEI! Then you’ve got Tyrion Lannister and the bastard Jon Snow. Then I don’t even know WHO that next dude is. Who cares. I hope a dragon eats him. Next: Jaime Lannister, Khal Drogo (R.I.P.), another dork probably, and Daenerys Targaryen. PALS, LET’S HANG OUT! And when I say hang out I mean make more episodes of your show full of adventures and put them on TV! It’s boring out here.

More photos of all our old friends looking like a bunch of stupid civilians after the jump. The eighth and final season of Entourage premieres this Sunday on HBO.

  1. Needs more Hodor

  2. Seconded!

    When I first saw the early promo for the show, I was pretty excited. Then the series started, and it seemed like it was going to be pretty alright. As the series went on, I found myself really excited for each new episode. And now that it’s gone, I find that I’m actually frustrated that I can’t see any new episodes!

    I really really like Game of Thrones, you guys.

  3. Is it distracting for people in entertainment to have stunningly attractive co-workers? We have a couple of women at work who are pretty good looking, and it’s a little distracting, but not a big deal. I wonder if you go to work every day with an often-naked Emilia Clarke, do you get used to it after a while?

  4. Peter Dinklage, I love you, but fire your colorist. Yikes.

  5. Gabe this is very dangerous stuff to be showing to people on a hot day! Everyone please drink a lot of water while you look at the pictures of Jon Snow’s sliiightly unbuttoned shirt, and consider standing in front of a fan as you gaze at Drogo’s leather pants. Check on your seniors, Emilia Clarke looks very nice!

  6. I was all set to say something funny, but this cast is so pretty it makes me dumb. Also, Jason Momoa, I am looking forward to seeing (ogling) you as Conan later this summer.

  7. This needs to come out on DVD so I can finally know what everyone is talking about down at the water cooler.

  8. I used to live in SD and would go to that thing a lot. But back then all we got was Kevin Smith panels. Like morning ’til dusk, it was all Kevin Smith basically. My fondest memories were that I farted near Wil Wheaton and that my wife sat in Lou Ferrigno’s lap. That’s it.

    But now it’s like really awesome looking what with the GAME OF THRONES OH MY GOD! I would have loved to be there and fanboy it up. Of course in reality I would have been in the nosebleeds behind 6,000 other nerds, but that’s not the point. I picture the Comic Con being like this awesome hangout where you get to rub elbows with GAME OF THRONES OH MY GOD actors. Not everything was better in the old days.

  9. Jon Snow has eyes like Tony the Prawn, don’t even think of looking directly into them.

  10. For the record, those two nerds are the creators and head writers, David Benioff and D.B. Weiss.

    What I think is awesome is how many non-nerds love this show. I was hanging out with some sports bros and one guy was like “You know what’s fuckin badass? That show… what’s it called? Game of thorns?” “Game of Thrones,” I responded. “Oh yeah! That shit’s great!” He replied, and was greeted with enthusiastic cheers from the rest of the brethren of “Yeah, bro!” “That shit’s crazy!” and “Dude!”

    They then proceeded to recount their favorite parts from the season, including, “When that wolf bit off that dude’s hand” and “That hot naked with with fuckin dragons!” To which I wanted to respond, “You mean Daenarys Stormborn of House Targaryan?” but actually responded with, “Yeah. She’s hot.”

  11. I actually sat down and watched one of those live blog coverage things yesterday during this panel, just an hour of tweets with snippets of quotes as they were happening. Not like, as a sidetab, it had my full attention. I… I think I have a problem. GoT support group?

    • Ohhh I did the same thing – and then trolled Tumblr for the full video until it popped up. And then trolled the #GameofThrones hashtag on Twitter for news.

      I’m actually concerned about how much I love this shoooow, guyssss!

      I think the only thing preventing actual medical withdrawal for me in the off season is the fact that I’m reading the books.

      • Is this your first time reading the books? Because, oh man, you have to go to the forums of after you finish. Trust me on this. I like to think of myself as an observant person who can follow complex storylines, but those forums make me feel like five year old, because apparently I managed to miss half of the shit going on.

  12. So that’s what George RR Martin looks like? Huh.

    • What I love about true nerds is that they don’t let fame or money change them. He’s still wearing the same work shirt and cargo pants barely supported by cheap suspenders. He still has the same unkempt beard and stupid hat that he’s always had. Stay true to yourself, George. (we are on a first name basis)

  13. John Snow is SO pretty. “He’s pretty.” – everyone, if they know what’s good for them.

  14. Sooooo… good.

  15. Things i miss most about GoT:

    - Varys and Baelish’s constant burns and word games
    - Danerys
    - Tyrion generally being the best
    - Joffrey generally being the worst
    - Sam and Frodos – i mean Jon Snow’s budding friendship.
    - Cercei’s permanent bitchface
    - Dire Wolves
    - How Caitlyn Stark is so dumb

    • re:varys and baelish

      I now live my life in a constant state of ultra-alertness waiting for the moment I am able to organically throw out the question “Do you lie awake at night, fearing my gash?”

  16. Is it just me or does real life Khal Drogo look an awful lot like Weston Cage?

  17. Sean Bean was supposed to be there, but he was killed off in the parking lot.

  18. HiEmiliaClarkepleasemarrymeokaycoolthanksbye
