NEW YORK – After weeks of secret negotiation, HBO have announced that Breaking Bad star Bryan Cranston will make an appearance in Game of Thrones.
“We’ve been chasing Bryan for a while,” said a HBO spokesperson:
He’s a very hard man to pin down. One week he’s in the Amazon teaching indigenous tribes Shakespeare and the next, he’s on an archaeological expedition searching for the lost city of Atlantis. He gets around but we finally caught up with him and sealed the deal.
Cranston will appear in season seven as Sacro Bleur, a wandering mercenary hired to assassinate Jon Snow.
“Sacro doesn’t feature in the original books but I was very keen to write a role for Bryan,” said George R.R. Martin:
He’s a man of mysterious origins adept at swordsmanship and a real charmer. Bryan complained that he never gets to do any sex scenes so I’ve written one in which he makes love to a White Walker. I say love, it’s more brutal, unbridled lust.
Asked if he had any plans to work with any other former members of the Breaking Bad cast, Martin nodded:
I’m seriously considering getting Dean Norris, the guy who played Hank, to play a Dornish mineral salesman.
Bryan Cranston will appear in season six of Game of Thrones.
