'Game of Thrones' Kit Harington Wants To Play Batman & He's In It For The Spandex
As if he wasn't already, Kit Harington wants to be your hero, and he wants to do it in spandex. The Game of Thrones star, Jimmy Choo model and certified hot dude told MTV UK that he "would love to play Batman" one day, but not the dark, moody superhero that fans of the Batman films might be used to. "I'd camp him up again," Harington said, "He’s gone way too dark and serious. I’d like proper spandex." Translation: Harington wants you to see his butt in shiny tights. This seems like a departure for Harington's typically brooding GOT character Jon Snow, and the name "Kit Harington" doesn't necessarily conjure the term "camp classic," but he's committed to those tights: "Superhero movies got all too serious," Harington added, "they need to get silly again." NO TIGHTS, NO MOVIE. Just how campy Harington would want this thing to be is unclear, which begs the question of whether this means he'll consider resurrecting the George Clooney nipple suit.
This is, of course, all speculative and hypothetical at this point, but if there's anyone looks halfway decent in synthetic fibers, it's probably Harington. The British actor will be straying from his usual hot sad guy repertoire in the upcoming comedy 7 Days In Hell starring Karen Gillan, Mary Steenburgen, Lena Dunham, and a host of Saturday Night Live actors past, so this could be a sign that Harington is looking to lighten up.
