Brace yourselves: cameos are coming. MLB reports that New York Mets pitcher Noah Syndergaard will have a cameo appearance in the seventh season of Game of Thrones. Depending on who you listen to, UFC star Conor McGregor and indie band Bastille may also show up, too which could make this the most celebrity-filled season yet.

Syndergaard, a huge Game of Thrones fan, filmed his brief appearance this past November in Spain.

They just know that I’m a fan and they invited me to do that… I couldn’t say no.

Who would? The show filmed a ton of stuff in Spain this year, so Syndergaard could pop up just about anywhere.

Syndergaard’s cameo comes on the heels of news that Major League Baseball will be teaming up with HBO for a variety of promotional efforts this summer, when season 7 debuts. The New York Mets, however, are not among those teams participating in the cross promotional efforts, at least not yet.

Syndergaard is also a fan of Marvel comics, The Walking Dead and Breaking Bad, among others, and has sewn tributes to his favorite shows into his gloves.

Syndergaard, who had a win/loss record of 14-9 last season, was recently offered a new contract that raised his salary from $503,375 to $605,550 for 2017, but he hasn’t signed it yet.

More on the season 7 cameo parade as it develops.

  • Who? His name might mean something to Americans, but not to the rest of us. Is that salary per week, like premiership footballers? Why this compulsion to have non-actors in the show? Whose egos are being fed? B and W?

    • I agree with you. Remember how bad Entourage got with cameos towards the end? Talk about a show that really went down hill. As for his salary, because he was too young for arbitration he has to go by his original structured deal. Next year he should be making 10 million plus.

  • Dan’s agent probably owed Noah’s agent a favor & so he gets his client on the biggest tv show going. Win win for everybody the way I see it. And with his long blonde locks he could fit right in with the Lannisters. I’m not too worried about these cameos. They haven’t seen to gone overboard & most of the time I didn’t even notice the cameos until a 2nd or 3rd viewing. My favorite cameo would have been Angela Lansbury cause that just made no sense at all. Who could she have played anyway in a cameo role. A random Septa perhaps. I don’t know about Connor McGregor actually appearing on the show. He’s known to stir things up. I wouldn’t be surprised either way. He could easily be some lunatic northman in the free folk army army. It would probably be coolest is if they made him a wight & Jon Snow rips through him with Longclaw or he gets roasted by Drogon.

    • If this happens I will weep tears of joy. Obviously it’ll be a tiny cameo probably with no lines but omg THOR ❤❤❤

  • It dosnt matter what he plays!! It couldnt hurt GOT unless they delayed the season start another damn day!! Come on with it already HBO. Winters already over here!!

  • Does anyone know what happened to Charlie Day’s and Rob McElhenney’s cameos for season 6, I remember them being in Belfast for filming but I’ve watched season 6 a few times now and either they arn’t in it or they’re hiding in the background vet well.
