Kit Harington — best known for his longstanding portrayal of Jon Snow on HBO’s Game of Thrones — joined host Jimmy Fallon last night for the 1500th episode of The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon!
For six years, The Tonight Show has apparently been trying to pitch its white whale sketch Straight Up Goes For It, where a guest will come out and sing the song “Drops of Jupiter” by Train. Famous singers left and right have passed on this idea … until now. Harington might not be a singer or a pianist, but he straight up went for it. And he absolutely put his all into the performance.
Two standing ovations later, Harington — who was in town filming a movie called “Baby Ruby” — joined Fallon to chat about being a new father. He also showed off his “dad dance” and talked about his upcoming film Eternals, the Harry Styles rumors, and his episode of Modern Love.
Watch their full conversation below.
Fans can catch Harington in an episode of season 2 of the anthology series Modern Love, “Strangers on a Train,” which premiered today on Amazon Prime Video.
Meanwhile, Harington will star in Marvel Studios’ Eternals, an epic story spanning thousands of years about a group of immortal heroes forced out of the shadows to reunite against mankind’s oldest enemy. He will portray the human hero Dane Whitman, also known as the Black Knight in the comics. Eternals will land in theaters on November 5.
