Rob McElhenney, Martin Starr were brutally murdered in Game Of Thrones' premiere

A.V. Club - 04-16


Game Of Thrones hasn’t always been great with guest appearances. Though it did alright with all those barely noticeable musicians over the years, any sense of restraint was thrown out the window when Ed Sheeran, one of the world’s most recognizable pop stars, made a jarring cameo as a Lannister soldier last season. Luckily, the show seems to be back on track, its premiere showing how to make guests fit naturally into its fiction by casting It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia’s Rob McElhenney and Silicon Valley/Freaks And Geeks’ Martin Starr as two Greyjoys who are swiftly, horribly murdered.
