In this week’s second installment of “Major League Baseball invades our favorite pastime,” Mets gunslinger Noah Syndergaard has been announced as an extra in Game of Thrones season 7 according to MLB.com.

The first round of baseball news came earlier this week, with the announcement of an unlikely cross-promotional partnership between MLB and Game of Thrones that will feature theme nights, giveaways, and special merchandise with at least 19 major league teams.

Syndergaard gave very few details on his “extra” appearance, but we at least know where it occurred…

According to this interview from the New York Post, Syndergaard filmed his appearance in Spain back in November.

Screen Shot 2017-03-03 at 6.21.41 PMAs to the circumstances surrounding the appearance, Syndergaard stated, “They just know that I’m a fan and they invited me to do that. I couldn’t say no.”

Syndergaard has taken advantage of his notoriety with the Mets to get a gig on television before. He appeared as “Viking” on the Halloween episode of CBS sitcom Kevin Can Wait thanks to Kevin James being a huge Mets fan.

As for his cameo in GoT, we can only speculate as to what he may be a part of. Venture a guess, and be sure not to miss his likely five seconds of GoT fame.

And may there always be peace in your realm. -Oz

    1. That’s awesome he is such a big fan! With his long, wild hair….I would guess he will play a Wildling? Can’t wait t see his actual role…..and the new season can’t come fast enough! Has any one said that??

    3. According to Noah Snydergard’s Twitter at 4:37 pm today:

      “As you may have heard, I plan on suiting up with Team Wildling this year for the Westeros Baseball Classic. They have a great Manager.”

      It’s accompanied by a 3-second clip of Jon Snow when WunWun and the wildlings agreed to join his army to take back Winterfell.

      I heard there was recently but only really the crew attended it as the actor’s are too busy being stuck in other projects. This person saw it on the GOT crew members IG account but didn’t wanna name them as they might lock their accounts like has happened in the past.

    5. For those that don’t follow baseball, this guy is 6’6 250 and his nickname is Thor. He looks like a northerner or Iron Islander.

      Thanks. Kind of lame since we’ve usually gotten some photos in the past and it’s always nice seeing them celebrate the occasion.

      So its been over 8 months since the Season 6 finale. Is this the longest drought between seasons without any official promo material?

    7. brown ben romney:
      so hes playing rhaegar right?

      Haha. I… wouldn’t be opposed to that. He does sort of match the description of Rhaegar.

      The Mets are not my team, but I root for Syndergaard (when he’s not pitching against my Giants, of course) so this is cool news and look forward to seeing him on GOT. If his tweet about being Team Wildling is true, then I am even more excited for his appearance if it means he’ll be onscreen with Jon Snow and/or Tormund. Though, when the news first broke, I actually thought Syndergaard would play a Lannister. He certainly has the look for it.

    8. BunBunStark,

      If you’re a SF Giants fan and you haven’t seen it, MLB.com has a 4/25/16 picture of Madison Bumgardner wearing a Hound’s helm given to him by rabid GoT fan Hunter Pence.

    9. BunBunStark,

      I don’t think his gonna be a wildling, considering this article said he filmed in Spain which was the Lannister’s, Dothraki and Unsullied while the Wildlings filmed in Ireland and Iceland. So I would say either a Lannister soldier or a dothraki with a dark wig.

    10. Wildling or Rhaegar? Wildling or Rhaegar?
      My brain says “Wildling”; my heart and my gut scream “Rhaegar!!!!”

    11. So when does the Washington Nationals’ Jayson Werth get *his* GoT shot? The guy used the GoT theme as his walk-up music! And he certainly looks as though he could be a Wildling.

    12. I don’t know why this would be considered “jumping the shark.” Game of Thrones has been casting porn stars as brothel extras since season one.
