The title Game of Thrones is not usually uttered in the same sentence a the word “hilarious.” But for the first time, it just may be. In fact, it just was. The occasion? The hit HBO fantasy drama debuted its first-ever blooper reel Friday at Comic-Con in San Diego.
The highly amusing — at least for Game of Thrones fans — two-minute compilation of charmingly awkward and amusing outtakes hit YouTube shortly after the Comic-Con audience saw it — and now The Inquisitr has the Game of Thrones Season 4 blooper reel for you right here.
From a dancing Jamie Lannister to an uncharacteristically forgetful Cersei, to giggling corpses and stumbling soldiers, a completely different side to the normally grim, violent world of Game of Thrones comes through on this blooper reel, which features epic mistakes and silly gags by most of the familiar cast members. Even the reserved and regal Tywin Lannister, played by respected British actor Charles Dance, gets in a few yuks.
Of course, Peter Dinklage, stepping out of character if not out of costume as the “imp” Tyrion Lannister is just as funny as one would expect — given that his character is granted most of the rare laugh-lines on Game of Thrones.
There’s not much more to say. If you love Game of Thrones, you’ll get a huge kick out of this blooper reel.
Also at Comic-Con Friday, Game of Thrones announced not just one or two, but nine count ’em nine new cast members for the upcoming Season 5.
Now, if you’re familiar with the Song of Ice And Fire series of novels by George R.R. Martin, on which Game of Thrones is based, simply seeing the names of some of these characters may serve as spoilers. So consider this your SPOILER ALERT.
With that out of the way, the nine new cast members and the characters they portray on Game of Thrones are as follows:
•Alexander Siddig as Doran Martell
•Enzo Cilenti as Yezzan
•Toby Sebastian as Trystane Martell
•Rosabell Laurenti Sellers as Tyene Sand
•Nell Tiger Free as Myrcella Baratheon
•DeObia Oparei as Areo Hotah
•Jonathan Pryce as the High Sparrow
•Jessica Henwick as Nymeria (“Nym”) Sand
•Keisha Castle-Hughes as Obara Sand.
Game of Thrones Season 5 debuts on HBO in the spring of 2015. Until then, we have the blooper reel to remind us of the calamitous events of Season 4.
