Red Nose Day has never been as crazy as this. Members of the cast of Game of Thrones think that a GoT musical is the worst idea they've ever heard, but Coldplay frontman Chris Martin thinks it's the best, and nothing will stop him in his plans to take Game of Thrones to Broadway.

Things start out slow in the production department, but eventually Kit Harington (Jon Snow) arrives at rehearsals, much to Chris's surprise seeing Mark Addy (Robert Baratheon) has already walked out on him.

"Thank you, Jon Snow," the Coldplay frontman says.

"It's Kit," Kit clarifies.

"Thank you, Kit Snow," Chris replies.

More cast members come flooding in shortly after, including Emilia Clarke (Daenerys Targaryen), Nikolaj Coster-Waldau (Jaime Lannister), Peter Dinklage (Tyrion Lannister), Alfie Allen (Theon Greyjoy), Rose Leslie (Ygritte), John Bradley-West (Samwell Tarly) and Thomas Brodie-Sangster (Jojen Reed).

And yes, that is Liam Neeson narrating.

Unfortunately, the musical is cancelled before it can go into production. No matter; Coldplay has other brilliant plans: Breaking Bad: The Ballet, Downton Abbey: The Opera and Taken: On Ice!. Honestly, what could go wrong?
