Eddie Redmayne, ‘Game of Thrones’ Cast Join NBC’s ‘Red Nose Day’

A gaggle of A-listers will soon be going red.

Eddie Redmayne, Retta, Olivia Wilde and “Game of Thrones” cast members Kit Harington, Peter Dinklage, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, Emilia Clarke, Iwan Rheon, Thomas Brodie-Sangster, Mark Addy, John Bradley, Rose Leslie, Alfie Allen and Charlotte Hope have joined “Red Nose Day,” NBC’s live televised drive aimed at helping 12 charity organizations lift children and young people out of poverty.

This is the first time the drive has been done in the U.S., although it’s a big hit across the pond, where it has raised more than $1 billion over the past 30 years. Richard Curtis is an executive producer for the NBC telecast (a Universal Television production), along with Hamish Hamilton and Ian Stewart of Done + Dusted Productions. Henrietta Conrad and Lily Sobhani will also serve as executive producers, as will Mike Farah, Anna Wenger and Joe Farrell from Funny or Die. Hamilton is set to direct.

The event airs from 8 p.m. to 11 p.m. ET May 21 on NBC. Viewers may also play along at home. Through May 30, Walgreens and Duane Reade stores will sell red noses for $1, with proceeds going to the Red Nose Day Fund.
