The Milk Of The Poppy


Christina Hendricks has expressed an interest to appear in Game of Thrones… and my bedroom. Okay, only half those claims are true.

We’ll need a bit of water to wash down all the salt fanboys should take this one with, but Christina Hendricks on HBO’s ‘Game of Thrones‘? We want to go to there. The ‘Mad Men‘ actress kept up the notorious secrecy surrounding the AMC drama, but recently opened up about her post-’Mad Men’ plans, which include a desire to make the trip to ‘Homeland‘ or HBO’s ‘Game of Thrones,’ assuming the old gods and the new smile upon us.

“I want to be on ‘Homeland’ because I love the suspense of it,” Hendricks told The Hollywood Reporter of her ideal casts to join. “But I also want to be on ‘Game of Thrones.’ I want to wear pelts and horns and ride around on horseback.” (H/TSully)

Wha-, what happened? Where am I? I just woke up in a puddle of my own drool.

    I don’t watch either show, but I’d consider it if Christina joins one of the the casts. On an unrelated topic, which show features the most nudity?

    From the article:

    Of course, ‘Game of Thrones’ has already begun production on its fourth season, and last we checked, there weren’t all-too-many redhead bombshell roles left, but something tells us George R.R. Martin would happily scribble in a few appendices to get Joan Holloway in (or out of) a few pelts. A long-lost Stark sister perhaps, who had been shunned for her sensual whisper of “winter is coming.” Also, topless horseback riding. It writes itself!

    Is it warm in here…?

    OK, I’m now officially Old. I’ve never HEARD of the Game of Thrones (maybe because I don’t get HBO) but I’ve read enough about it out here, to offer a THIRD to John D.’s motion, which was seconded by toothy – hell I can always get the DVD!!

    I have no idea who she’d play in Game of Thrones, since the red priestess is already taken, she’s probably too old to be one of the Dorne women (not to mention the fact that they have dark hair), and there’s not rally any other large part that would suit her star status. I suppose she could to a cameo as a prostitute (which I wouldn’t mind).

    I’m thinking Homeland would work much better, since there’s no analogous book that would require her to be a pre-existing character.

    Wyatt you said only one of the two claims were true so I thought I’d drop by and offer my congratulations. However, I see that everyone else seems to think that she will appear on Game of Thrones. I hope they can handle the disappointment OK.
