Joe Manganiello recalls when Game of Thrones Showrunners joined his Dungeons & Dragons Game




Dungeons & Dragons is an amazing pen and paper game, and is something that has always been associated with us nerds. It is not just a great pastime but also enhances your creativity and imagination. But what happens when a bunch of some of the world’s most famous (and infamous) nerds gather to play a campaign of Dungeons & Dragons? Actor Joe Manganiello recalls one such incident, which also includes Game of Thrones showrunners David Benioff and D. B. Weiss.

Manganiello recently appeared on Late Night With Seth Meyers and narrated the incident when he was joined by the Game of Thrones showrunners. He explained how Rage Against the Machine guitarist Tom Morello was responsible for D.B. Weiss and David Benioff both joining Manganiello’s home game of Dungeons & Dragons. “Tom [Morello] said there was a guy in my kid’s carpool, he wants to play,” Manganiello said. “I said ‘Nah, the group’s kind of big. We’re ballooning. I just want to keep it intimate.’ And Tom said “He created Game of Thrones.”

Dan came and played and then he was texting,” Manganiello said. “Which you don’t do while the Dungeon Master is working. I asked ‘Dude, what’s up?’ and [Weiss] said ‘Oh, it’s Dave [Benioff]. He wants to know how many hit points the dragon has.'” Benioff then told Weiss that he’d “divorce Weiss as a creative partner” unless Weiss got Benioff into the Dungeons & Dragons game.”

Manganiello did get a measure of revenge against the pair for pushing their way into his Dungeons & Dragons game. Manganiello noted later in the interview that he actually used the dragons from Game of Thrones against the pair. “My nephew gave me a bunch of dragons that were Game of Thrones dragons so I would use them to try to kill [Benioff and Weiss’s characters.]
