While never having hosted SNL before, Harington is no stranger to poking fun ty his Game of Thrones character Jon Snow or the series itself. Once while appearing on Jimmy Kimmel, he was featured in a hilarious bit where he auditioned for other Game of Thrones characters. Do yourself a favor and check it out below.
He also once visited Late Night With Seth Myers and appeared in a skit in which Myers brings Jon Snow to a dinner party.
And back in 2015, Saturday Night Live actually did a sketch about the mysterious fate of Jon Snow after he was seemingly killed. So, we’re sure they’re excited to have the actual actor taking the stage with them and giving Pete Davidson a break.
Are you excited to see Harington take his comedy chops for a spin?
