Leslie Jones Gives Hysterical 'Game of Thrones' Commentary as Cast Member Surprises Her: Watch!
By Rachel McRady
Game of Jones! No one is a bigger Game of Thrones fan than Saturday Night Live funnywoman, Leslie Jones. The 49-year-old comedian normally live tweets the HBO show’s weekly episodes, but when she missed this week, her pal, Seth Meyers, invited her over to watch with him.
And no offense to Jon Snow or Daenerys Targaryen, but Leslie is much more entertaining than watching them quarrel over who is “bending the knee.”
“I am Game of Thrones, homie,” Leslie declared to the Late Night host.
Leslie gave her candid and hilarious opinions on each of the characters, explaining, “Bronn is the gangster. Bronn is the dude in the hood who knows where all the $1 cigarettes is.”
And as for the conniving Littlefinger, Leslie quipped, “I said I still would do it with Littlefinger, but I’d just have to watch him the whole time. I couldn’t have my eyes closed in passion.”
But her blunt opinions got her in a bit of trouble when she talked about Varys, saying, “Varys is like the girlfriend that you don’t know if she’s really your homegirl or not because one minute she’s supporting you and got your back but then the next minute you hear about some bulls**t she said to someone else about you.”
Just then, Conleth Hill, who plays Varys, stepped into the room and Leslie freaked out hugging him and arguing with him over plot points.
