Peter Dinklage Gets ‘Naked & Afraid’ for ‘Saturday Night Live’
Dinklage, who was hosting Saturday Night Live, stripped off for a mock celebrity edition of risque reality show Naked & Afraid, and was joined by amorous SNL comedienne Leslie Jones, who made it clear she wanted to get romantic with the actor – and spent the teaser skit calling Dinklage by his Game of Thrones character’s name, Tyrion. In one hilarious night-time scene, the worried actor told naked Jones she was crushing him. The camera panned out to reveal Leslie had wrapped her leg around Dinklage’s body. She replied, “I’m not crushing you, I’m saving your life. This is body warmth.” Dinklage then asked, “Why is your hand down there (on his genitals)?” to which Jones, who appears in the new Ghostbusters movie, explained, “That’s where the warmest part is.” During the pair’s ’12 days’ together naked in the wilderness, Leslie lost points for attempting to eat her vegetarian castmate. Dinklage’s SNL hosting gig also featured a skit in which he portrayed Winnie the Pooh, and he teamed up with musical guest Gwen Stefani to perform an electro-pop tune called “Spacepants” in a cabaret bar as a Mafia deal was going down in front of the duo. He also appeared in a mock Game of Thrones trailer.
