Game of Thrones characters reimagined in Seinfeld, Arrested Development, Mad Men

By CW

We’ve all played that game around the office: If my coworkers, family or friends were characters from Game of Thrones, who would they be? Well, the folks over at Vulture took this thinking to a new and awesome level, enlisting an artist to reimagine GoT characters into some of TV’s most beloved personalities from Seinfeld, Arrested Development and Mad Men. TNW offers some thoughts and grades on each rendering:

Here we have The Hound as Kramer, Samwell Tarly as George, Dany as Elaine and Tyrion as Jerry. Let’s break this down from left to right.

‘Sorkinisms’ an excuse for ‘Arrested Development’

At TNW, we were all quite fond of The Newsroom (well, it wasn’t unanimous). It’s perfect scheduling by HBO now that Game of Thrones and Veep are over, and it definitely gives us something to look forward to on Sunday nights. Admittedly, I’m not a huge Aaron Sorkin guy (check out what our resident expert NT wrote on The Newsroom premier here), so I don’t know the context for some the quotes in the above video. Apparently the guy has a penchant for recycling lines. It doesn’t change how I feel about Newsroom, but it does make for an enjoyable montage.

Perhaps even more important, that business that starts up around the 2:05 mark gives us a damn good reason to post a classic video. Enjoy.
