Swapping 19 Game of Thrones Characters With The Sopranos
Have you ever noticed that HBO likes to use some of their best character actors in multiple series? It’s a good thing, usually, until the day when we see Erlich Bachman on True Detective.
Through the years, we’ve seen plenty of actors playing multiple characters on HBO series, like how Littlefinger from Game of Thrones was also the mayor for a couple seasons in The Wire. Or how about Ian McShane’s cameo appearance in Game of Thrones a decade after starring in Deadwood? And one of my favorite is Michael K. Williams, who turned a huge scar across his face into an asset, starring as Omar in The Wire and Chalky White in Boardwalk Empire!
This article, however, takes a different tack on this same concept. Rather than moving actors/actresses from one series over to another, we’re going to swap entire casts!
While watching this season of Game of Thrones, it reminded me of a number of similar character-types on The Sopranos, one of the greatest televisions series of all time! Both were produced by HBO, so it makes sense to just do a character swap! (Just go with me on this.)

So please enjoy this slideshow and try to imagine the Game of Thrones characters I mention on The Sopranos, and vice-versa! Spoiler alerts aplenty in this article, so if you haven’t seen these shows up to now, then move along! Disregard all of the bad Photoshop pictures that were obviously done by an 8-year-old.
