Man of the Week: Happy Birthday George R.R. Martin!

George R.R. Martin

On Sunday, novelist and all-around amazing guy George R.R. Martin celebrated his 67th birthday. How did he spend his special day? Attending the Emmys, of course! Host Andy Samberg took a moment during the broadcast to wish him a happy birthday, and talk about how Martin attended the very first Emmy awards – as a baby. Looks like he popped out with that beard!

Samberg ended things with this: “Happy birthday, George,and thanks for telling me during the commercial that Jon Snow is alive.” True? False? Joke? I guess we’ll find out (moderately) soon enough.

Check out Bobby Moynihan playing Martin on SNL last year.
