Jason Momoa reacts to viral photo of him and Game Of Thrones co-star Emilia Clarke as he talks season two of See with co-star Dave Bautista
In the photo, Jason wore a captain’s hat and white vest as his on-screen wife sat on his lap.
Bautista was discussing how he wanted audiences to see more of Jason’s fun side on screen when host Seth Meyers brought up the photo on his show, Late Night with Seth Meyers.
New co-stars and old: Jason Momoa joined his See co-star Dave Bautista on Late Night with Seth Meyers and also talked about his recent Instagram post with Emilia Clarke
‘I think this is the side of you that Dave was talking about you. The more fun, lighthearted side that we didn’t get to see on Game Of Thrones,’ Seth said.
‘There he is. My favorite show on earth was Saturday Night Live when I was raised,’ Jason said in response to the photo.
The photo was taken at writer David Benioff’s birthday party. Though fans have long wanted the two to get together, Momoa is happily married to Denise Huxtable herself, Lisa Bonet.
His Dune co-star, 52, mentioned that he wants the world to see how funny his co-star superhero friend can be.

Many new projects: The pair talked about both their new movie Dune and the second season of See, a show which stars Momoa and which Dave Bautista joined for season 2
A funny guy: Bautista touted his co-star’s comedic abilities during the interview
‘[Jason] is just such a great dramatic actor, I think that really gets focused on, and they lose sight of how funny he is,’ Bautista said.
The pair also talked about their upcoming projects See and Dune, both of which were filmed in intense environments.
The stars said that filming Dune was incredibly hot as it was filmed at several locations in the Middle East and See, which was filmed in Toronto during the winter, was frigid.
Very complimentary: Bautista called Momoa a great dramatic actor and very funny as well
Two extremes: The stars said they filmed Dune in the sweltering heat and See in the freezing cold
Good in the heat: Bautista said he loved the heat but was freezing in the cold and also made a crack about his lack of hair
Momoa said he enjoyed the cold weather up in Canada, but Bautista said he didn’t take to it as well as his co-star did.
‘I had layers and layers and layers, and I was still freezing,’ the Guardians of the Galaxy star said. ‘But I don’t have a full head of hair to keep me warm either.’
During the interview the pair also revealed that they would probably work together again soon enough.
Bautista tweeted out an idea that gained traction on Twitter about he and his co-star working together on a ‘Lethal Weapon style’ movie.
‘Sometimes I kind of gauge interest on Twitter,’ the actor said. ‘If you throw something out there, people will automatically respond if they’re super hot for it.’
While it’s unclear whether such a film will be made, the two stars seem to have a good working relationship, and audiences seem ready to see the pair onscreen together again soon.
