Game of Thrones is pretty much as good as episodic fiction gets. It's a gripping piece of television that's happy to stoke controversy while bringing a brutal dose of medieval reality to the fantasy genre, winning new audiences and huge acclaim.
But, there's always room for improvement no matter how popular something is. What you might wonder then could possibly top a show that now, in its sixth season, is more gripping then ever?
How about if every single major character in the show, and there's A LOT, was played by none other than Nicolas Cage?
Yup, that should do it. Well, we're all in luck because someone has gone to the Photoshopping trouble of undertaking such a mammoth task and the results are, well, nothing short of spectacular.
The person behind turning one of the internet's best celebrity memes into GoT characters is Redditor CarlosDanger100.
30 characters from the Seven Kingdoms have become Nic Cage in the series Cage of Thrones. Stannis Baratheon is particularly convincing.
I'm not sure what it is about Cage but the simple act of putting his head on any well known person (or animal, or inanimate object) just works.
Just look at how effortlessly he carries off the various Westeros characters. In fact he does it so well you wonder why David Benioff and D.B. Weiss didn't just cast him in every role in the first place. Maybe that could be something to explore after the whole series wraps up.
Meanwhile, take a look at these Cages of the Realm below:
Lord 'Littlefinger' Baelish
Brienne of Tarth
