Coldplay Drummer Is Cast On 'Game of Thrones' And You'll Never Guess What He's Playing

Will Champion of Coldplay has joined the third season cast of HBO's "Game of Thrones" and he'll be playing a part that's very close to home. Nope, not a Dire Wolf. Champion will be a playing a drummer!

"GoT" fansite ventures a guess that Champion's connection to Emilia Clarke (Daenerys) got him the gig. He and his Coldplay bandmates produced "Spike Island" which starred Clarke.

Snow Patrol singer/guitarist Gary Lightbody also joined the series. Are we seeing the coming-together of a Westeros supergroup? Most likely. I eagerly await the casting of Gene Simmons, Pete Townshend and the Tupac hologram.
