Marking the first time Harington will host the comedy sketch series, a fitting video promo has been shot which features the actor taking a walk of shame, similar to the one Cersei took in season 5. Also appearing alongside him is SNL‘s Leslie Jones, dressed like Hodor, who demands Harington to bend the knee. “Is this even for the show?” Harington asks. When he refuses, he is then forced to take the walk of shame wearing a blonde wig and nude suit while donuts are thrown at him.
Kit Harington will host this Saturday, April 6 alongside musical guest Sara Bareilles. Emma Stone is set to host the following week with BTS performing.
Harington has won himself an Emmys nod this year for Best Drama Actor in a Leading Role for his portrayal of Jon Snow. Look for Game of Thrones’ return to HBO on April 14.
