When you play the Cage of Thrones, you win or you die laughing. Redditor CarlosDanger100 has reimagined Games of Thrones’ iconic characters by digitally swapping their faces for that of the Internet’s favorite actor, Nicolas Cage, and the resulting collection is hilariously captivating. Some are more successful photo edits than others, but all are undoubtedly entertaining.
Thanks to the magic of Photoshop, Cage becomes a doleful Daenerys Targaryen, a befuddled Bran Stark, a ruminative Jaime Lannister, and a brooding Jon Snow. He makes an especially striking stand-in for Stannis Baratheon. Like a chameleon, Cage’s wide-ranging facial expressions transform him to an eerily accurate double for characters all throughout the Seven Kingdoms of Westeros, infusing the bloody drama with some comical absurdity. See for yourself below, but be warned—winter is Caging.
