See The Mindy Project’s Ike Barinholtz Dressed As Game of Thrones’ Brienne

To help hype the third season of Game of Thrones, HBO sent celebrity fans like Mindy Kaling, Patton Oswalt, and Anna Kendrick personalized House swag straight out of King’s Landing. One guy they shouldn’t have forgotten: The Mindy Project’s Ike Barinholtz, who told Vulture that he dressed up for Adam Levine’s Halloween party as Catelyn Stark’s lady knight Brienne. He also sent us the accompanying photo as proof. He managed to convince his wife, Erica, to go as Brienne’s prisoner, the kingslayer Jamie Lannister. “She’s not as into it as I am,” Barinholtz explained. “She was like, ‘Are you sure? Will people get it?’ and I said, ‘Absolutely, they will.’” Unfortunately, no one did. “We walk up to Stephen Merchant. He goes, ‘Great costume … Uh, who are you?’ ‘Game of Thrones.’ ‘Which ones?’ He had no idea.”
