Sometimes it seems like everyone in Hollywood comes from UCB. Aziz Ansari! Donald Glover! Er, Jason Momoa! Yep, Khal Drogo himself from Game of Thrones was a UCB intern once upon a time. "He used to be in my Level 3 class, and I used to be like, 'Jason, Jason, just relax. Try not to play so high-status,'" Amy Poehler jokes. "And he’d be like, 'But I’m 6’5 and I’m a giant.' And I’d be like, 'I want to see your sweeter side, I guess.'" Between that and improvisers' inclination toward nerdiness, how has there not been an improvised Game of Thrones performance yet?
