This ‘Game Of Thrones’ Star Almost Dropped Lin-Manuel Miranda On ‘The Late Late Show With James Corden’
“I digitized every VHS movie I made, I was like a Spielberg in my own mind…”
Lin-Manuel Miranda was on “The Late Late Show with James Corden” and boy did a lot of things happen. From showing bits of his home movie collection where a scrawny Miranda danced in Puerto Rico to the sounds of el coqui, to brainstorming ideas for a future musical, it was a fun episode. Along for the ride was Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, who you may know from a little show called “Game of Thrones” where he plays the one-handed, king-slaying knight, Sir Jamie Lannister. Although Miranda and Coster-Waldau might seem like an unlikely pair, the two got along swell, with Miranda at one point sitting on Coster-Waldau’s shoulders to show what a jailhouse squat looks like — something Coster-Waldau learned for a movie role.
You can see Miranda’s life flash before his eyes as Coster-Waldau balances Miranda on his shoulders.
This was definitely a close one…
Corden and Miranda then geeked out over the possibility of a “Game of Thrones” musical, which Coster-Waldau definitely would not be singing in.
A brainstorm session then ensued: what tattoo should the cast of “Game of Thrones” get? Miranda then showed off his tattoo: his wife’s initials on his wedding ring finger.
The crowd gave a collective “aww” at what is clearly the most romantic tattoo ever. Get it, Miranda!
