GO TO SLEEP, TYRION!
Peter Dinklage, who plays Tyrion Lannister on Game of Thrones, embarked on the ultimate survival challenge while making his Saturday Night Live hosting debut. In a pre-taped parody sketch titled Naked & Afraid: Celebrity Addition, he was tasked with surviving in the wild with cast member Leslie Jones…in the buff.
“Whoa!” the comedienne and actress said as she steps out of an Uber. “The cool breeze feel good on my ass, man!”
During their unconventional camping adventure, Jones proceeds to call Dinklage “Tyrion,” which appears to annoy him.
“Peter,” she said. “Is a whiny bitch. Did you know he’s a vegetarian? All we’ve been eating is leaves! And not once, not once did he compliment my body. It’s like, ‘You don’t want this?'”
Naturally, thinks get a little crazy in the wild. We’re talking, yes, spooning.
“This is body warmth,” Jones says.
Also on the episode, Gwen Stefani performed her new songs “Misery” and “Make Me Like You.” Check out more highlights.
Dinklage and cast members Aidy Bryant, Vanessa Bayer and Beck Bennett go out to dinner at a restaurant that was a sex parlor in the ’70s…and one of the eatery’s key feature is still utilized well.
Game of Thrones “sneak peek”:
Dinklage joins Kate McKinnon, playing Emilia Clarke, who portrays Daenerys Targaryen, in giving a mock behind-the-scenes look at the upcoming sixth season, which premieres on April 24.
Dinklage plays an ’80s-style New Wave singer who sings a song titled “Space Pants” at a restaurant, distracting a group of mobsters, made up of Bennett, Bobby Moynihan, Jon Rudnitsky and Pete Davidson. Stefani then joins Dinklage onstage for a duet.
Stefani, Dinklage and Jones later partied at an SNL after-party, where they were joined by other cast members as well as former Saturday Night Live star Adam Sandler.
