'Game of Thrones' Puts the Severed Head of Bush Jr. on a Spike

Print comment Post Comments

Last week, Minyanville reported that former Apple (AAPL) CEO Steve Jobs will be battling "Joker" in theaters next year. Though some would argue that it's regrettable that the visionary will be played by the goofy and floppy Two and a Half Men star Ashton Kutcher, the Apple leader's legacy will still be less tarnished than that of another chief.


In Game of Thrones, when newly minted King Joffrey shows his bride-to-be/captive Sansa Stark the severed head of her father along the city walls, it’s gruesome and emotionally wrenching. But, at least dear departed Ned Stark had some good company with another past head of state.

Both Gawker and iO9 have confirmed that one of the heads in this scene is that of former President George W. Bush.

They were first alerted to the surprise cast addition by Reddit user SidIncognito, who found the previous Commander in Chief while rewatching the first season.

Showrunner’s David Benioff and D.B. Weiss claim no political motivation behind the severed ex-POTUS’s noggin. The head was a prop they rented and they did not notice the resemblance until after the scene was shot.

They nonetheless issued an apology, along with HBO (TWX). All involved felt sorry for the course of events.

Future releases of the Season One DVD will have the head removed.
