The man for all seasons

This year, Red Nose Day will be hitting American shores via an NBC television event set to feature Julia Roberts, Will Ferrell, Jennifer Aniston, Reese Witherspoon, Jodie Foster, Jimmy Fallon, Neil Patrick Harris, Coldplay and others. And to announce the impending event, Coldplay and NBC have released a few teasers on YouTube featuring snippets from Game of Thrones: The Musical, an elaborate project developed by the British band with the help from stars of the TV show.

The most-viewed clip released thus far is of Peter Dinklage (Tyrion Lannister) singing or, more accurately, boasting about still standing in season five while other characters—both loved and reviled—have fallen along the way.  

Coldplay has also released another video featuring Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, who plays Jaime Lannister, singing a heartfelt number dedicated to his lover (and sister) Cersei. And while it also has some great lines such as ‘I miss my fingers like you miss your son,’ Coster-Waldau certainly doesn’t have the singing voice of his fictional brother.               

Coldplay has also released a Red Wedding teaser clip, which unfortunately doesn’t feature any lyrics. However, if the other two promotional clips are anything to go by, no doubt the infamous Red Wedding will also be given a dose of black comedy.

UPDATE: they have now also thrown a Rastafarian Targaryen into the mix.
