But perhaps nobody is more excited than Khal Drogo himself about this latest gig. As Deadline reported late last week, the former Game of Thrones star will have a rare opportunity to stretch his comedic muscles with a role opposite Will Ferrell.
The as-yet-untitled Paramount production will see the 37-year-old Momoa playing the former TV son of Ferrell, who happens to be 49. Years after their show ended, Ferrell’s character is now a Z-lister, while Momoa is a superstar. According to Deadline, the comedy has been described as ” Galaxy Quest meets Ocean’s Eleven,” suggesting that some sort of hijinks (a heist? some sort of intergalactic catastrophe?) will reunite the fake family.
Thanks to Momoa’s reaction to the casting news, we’re already in hysterics. The actor made no attempt to stay cool when he shared the Deadline story on his personal Instagram.

Duly noted. Clearly, Momoa has been waiting quite some time to make the masses laugh, which may explain his recent Salt Bae impersonation. Apparently, he’s fierce and funny, which means Lisa Bonet’s life is even better than you imagined. Sigh.
Fingers crossed it’s not a flop, even though we’ll be watching it regardless. And to save you the trouble, we’ve gone ahead and taken the liberty of pulling up “It Was a Good Day” for your listening pleasure. When Khal tells us to do something, we do it.
