Why Andrew Garfield and James Corden aren't on 'Game of Thrones'

Sketch airs on 'Late Late show'

(CNN) - James Corden and Andrew Garfield once had the dream of bringing their talents to Westeros, but it wasn't meant to be.

Once you see their "auditions," you'll understand why.

In a sketch that aired on "The Late Late Show," Corden and Garfield show off their acting chops in footage from multiple auditions for "Game of Thrones" characters, from Ned Stark to Hodor.

To say they really tried to land any part on the iconic series would be an understatement.

At one point, Garfield shows up in a red dragon outfit. When he's told the plan is for the dragons to be CGI, he scoffs.

"Well, that's a huge mistake."

Corden is the latest to try capitalizing on the buzz around the uber-popular series, which will come to a conclusion next month. Even "Sesame Street" found a way to get in on the action.

As everyone battles in the game of content, the viewers win.
