Looks like our dream of Jason Momoa playing Tom Araya has just gotten one step closer to reality. Instagram is currently blowing up with of the Aquaman and Game Of Thrones star hanging out with Slayer and Anthrax backstage at their concert in Budapest, Hungary.

In his post, Momoa wrote “love metal so much fire it was one of the greatest shows of my life childhood dream @slayerbandofficial @anthrax my mind was blown Meeting your idols and they’re fucking amazing So thankful so grateful.”

Anthrax’s Charlie Benante posted his own image with the Hollywood star, writing, “When #KhalDrago comes to your show you immediately go into @gameofthrones talk!”
