The Word: Christina Hendricks wants to be on ‘Game of Thrones’
“If you’re lucky, in a year you’ll be living in King’s Landing with us. And if you’re really lucky, you won’t be living in Westeros at all.”
“Go home. Put a paper bag over your dragon’s head. Really evaluate its strengths and weaknesses. And be honest.”
Oh, hey, I didn’t see you there. I was just writing some dialogue for Christina Hendricks when she joins the cast of “Game of Thrones.” Not that that’s set in stone or anything, but with “Mad Men” drawing to a close, she’s expressed an interest. “I want to be on ‘Homeland’ because I love the suspense of it, but I also want to be on ‘Game of Thrones.’ I want to wear pelts and horns and ride around on horseback,” Hendricks told the Hollywood Reporter.
I can’t imagine anyone in the world who would object to that. I might finally get HBO if it means I can see Hendricks making breathy, passive-aggressive comments to people as she cuts off their heads.
