'GOT' Star Kit Harington Blames Broken Ankle For Lack of Nudity, So Here Are Other Lame Excuses He Can Give
He may know nothing on television, but he does know something in real life. Your favorite brown-eyed bastard, Kit Harington, thinks there ought to be more male nudity on Game of Thrones . Why? "It's only right." You hear that women? Jon Snow thinks it's only right that he shed all of his layers and show you what's underneath that fur cape!
In an interview with GQ, he said:
It's only right, if you're going to make a show where nudity and sex is a large part of it, that you be a part of that.
We've already been thinking that for some time. (See! He does know something!) That said, if he so firmly agrees with this, why isn't he taking off his clothes? Apparently, he needs to be in good physical standing.
You see, last season, despite swiping his v-card with the redheaded, arrow-shooting Ygritte, he couldn't show his bare ass (that was an ass-double you saw, by the way) because... he had a broken ankle. Yup, you read that right — a broken ankle. Because as many of us know, ankles truly and deeply affect our abilities to disrobe. What is an ass to do with a broken ankle?! Everything apparently.
That's an excuse fail, Kit. If a broken ankle is a viable reason for you not to be in the nude, what other excuses can you give next season when we begin to wonder just why you're not getting naked?
"It's too cold beyond the wall!"
"I'm having... shrinkage."
"In this weather, you've got to keep warm, so I haven't manscaped in years."
"I'm too weak from getting bow-and-arrowed. I can't even disrobe."
"Shouldn't we be focusing on my eyes?" (We may want to acquiesce for a moment.)
" ...And my hair?" (Okay, fine.)
"I'll only do it if all of my bearded cohorts do it with me! Are you in, guys?"
"I just thought about how my whole family is dead for the most part. I prefer to cry while clothed, thank you very much."
"I made a promise. To The Night's Watch."
"To that end, The Night's Watch might be watching me... those pervs."
"My ass hurts. From riding on horses and climbing and falling."
"I know nothing." (Like, including how to take off all of those medieval layers.)
In reality, the reason Harington didn't get naked is because the naked shot involved him jumping into a pool. So assuming there are no broken ankles or naked-jumping scenes, might we really get a glimpse at Jon Snow's manhood in Season 4?
I'm not saying. Because I don't know. It would have to be fucking well deserved.
Ah, so there it is. He doesn't know. He knows nothing, Jon Snow. We can see what he does know (and what he may or may not show) in Season 4, which premieres on April 6.
