'Game of Thrones' Cast Answers All Your Burning Questions on Kimmel's 'Game of Phones'

Sophie Turner, Maisie Williams, Lena Headey, Iwan Rheon, Kristian Nairn, Liam Cunningham, John Bradley and Joe Dempsie are (contractually) happy to help.

After seven seasons, countless deaths and more lead characters than you can shake a sword made from Valyrian steel at on "Game of Thrones," it can get pretty confusing at times. Thankfully, Jimmy Kimmel and the cast of the hit HBO series have the answer.

"A small but diabolical clause in their HBO contract requires them to to man our phone banks and cut George R.R. Martin’s lawn," Kimmel explains in the narration of his new commercial for the "Game of Phones."

Like the heyday of phone lines, this infomercial proves that there’s no one better to answer all of your burning "Game of Thrones" questions than the cast of the show itself. Everyone from Cersei Lannister to the Stark sisters, Hodor and even the nasty Ramsay Bolton are there.

The concept of the bit was funny enough, but getting more than half a dozen "Thrones" stars to don embroidered "Game of Phones" polo shirts and man the phones was a stroke of comedy genius. Even better were some of their answers to the ridiculous questions fans might really have.

Sophie Turner had a surprising answer to the question of who poisoned her one-time fiance King Joffrey, while poor Iwan Rheon was just verbally abused for how awful his character was to basically everyone. "You know I have caller ID," he said with a sinister glint in his eye. "See you soon, Gary."

Other questions were answered by Sam Tarly (John Bradley), Ser Davos Seaworth (Liam Cunningham) and Gendry (Joe Dempsie), who wasn’t at all comfortable with how impassioned Cunningham got in talking about his "perfect" penis.

It’s nice to know there’s a resource available for anyone having trouble keeping up with all the twists and turns of the hottest show on television as "Game of Thrones" heads into its final episodes. Plus, they can talk to you about what to do when you totally have a crush on your brother or wonder how that whole face-swapping thing works.
