Aaron Rodgers reportedly making 'Game of Thrones' cameo on May 12
MILWAUKEE -- It's no secret that Aaron Rodgers is a huge Game of Thrones fan -- and the Green Bay Packers quarterback might be taking a trip to Westeros this Sunday, May 12 with a cameo on the hit HBO series.
Rodgers made a mysterious tweet back in April about the fantasy series, using a hashtag that says "Episode 5 should be good." On Sunday, the fifth episode of the final season will be airing -- and according to a tweet by Packers reporter Aaron Nagler, Rodgers will be making an appearance in the episode.
There has been no official confirmation from either Rodgers or HBO, but Rodgers did speak to interviewer Sam Alex at the Kentucky Derby, apparently confirming his appearance before rushing away from the camera.
Rodgers wouldn't be the first sports star to visit Westeros. In 2017, Mets pitcher Noah Syndergaard appeared as a spear-throwing soldier. A number of high-profile musicians have made cameos as well, including Ed Sheeran and Chris Stapleton.
Rodgers and his girlfriend Danica Patrick were spotted in Belfast, Ireland last summer -- and as hardcore Thrones fans know, a number of GoT scenes were shot in northern Ireland.
Emilia Clarke, who plays Danaerys Targaryen, said episode 5 is going to be the biggest episode of the season. She told Jimmy Kimmel, "Episode five is bigger. Episode five is, I mean, four and five and six, they're all insane but like... Find the biggest TV you can."
Keep your eyes peeled during this Sunday's episode -- you might spot Aaron Rodgers, Lord of Greenwater Bay.
