Winter Cometh: The 'It's Always Sunny' Lads Are In Ireland And Could Star In Game Of Thrones

Winter Cometh: The 'It's Always Sunny' Lads Are In Ireland And Could Star In Game Of Thrones

This is not a drill. Grab the rum ham and get your ass to the North.

Charlie Day and Rob McElhenney have been spotted in Belfast and we're pretty certain they're going to feature in Season 6 of Game of Thrones.

Trust me, it's nowhere near as ludicrous as you'd think - but first here's a picture of Charlie enjoying the Belfast nightlife.

'But just because they're in Belfast, that hardly means they're going to feature on Game of Thrones, you dickhead,'

I hear you say.

No it does not, but allow me to take you back to It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia Season 9 Episode 8, Flowers for Charlie - a Flowers for Algernon-meets-Limitless parody where Charlie is used as a test subject for a new intelligence pill:

Remember it? Well that episode was guest-written by none other than Game Of Thrones scribes David Benioff and D. B. Weiss, as explained here by Charlie Day himself:

Game of Thrones' Burn Gorman featured in said Sunny episode, and Benioff and Weiss recently told TMZ that they wish to return the favour and find a way to have 'Mac' and Charlie feature in Westeros.

Thrones is no stranger to cameo roles, with Snow Patrol's Gary Lightbody once belting out a tune on horseback, Sigur Ros providing their own jingle, Coldplay drummer Will Champion attending the Red Wedding and the likes of Benioff's own parents also featuring.

It's difficult to know how Charlie's expertise in bird law could bring Jon Snow back from the dead, but what better way to make Bran's return more interesting than polluting him with rum ham, or perhaps having a musical episode called The Winter Cometh.

The possibilities are endless!

Jokes aside, Day and McElhenney's presence in Belfast smack-bang in the middle of filming for GOT Season 6 could finally cause two great worlds - Westeros, and Paddy's Pub - to collide, and produce our favourite cameo yet.
