New York Mets ace Noah Syndergaard put his powerful right arm on display Sunday night in the most recent episode of HBO’s “Game of Thrones.”
It’s safe to say that the 6’6″ Syndergaard’s long hair, strong throwing arm and superhero alter-ego (Thor) allowed him to blend in with the rest of the cast nicely.

The hit show has seen plenty of celebrities on it in recent years, including singer/songwriter Ed Sheeran, who appeared in the current season’s first episode.
Syndergaard is the first athlete to appear on the show, and he took to Twitter to commend his throwing accuracy in the episode.

Now before you start thinking that Syndergaard has been off filming rather than working his way back from injury, know that the episode was filmed during the offseason in Spain.
He elaborated on that experience back in April during an interview with Sports Illustrated‘s Maggie Gray.
