The next time Hollywood actor Jason Momoa comes to Vancouver, he probably won’t be staying at L’Hermitage.

The star of “Aquaman” and “Game of Thrones” became trapped in the luxury hotel’s elevator on Monday night along with five friends and a dog.

Momoa broadcasted live video of the predicament to his 13 million social media followers, complaining that they were stuck for at least two hours with only M&Ms to eat and beer to drink.

“I’m hungry! Help me! Get me out!” yelled the friend as he furiously pushed buttons, while a man and two other women were already slumped on the floor munching M&M candy and drinking cans of beer.

“Bust that s— out, man,” Momoa quipped, before explaining their predicament to fans. “We’re stuck in an elevator. Fire department doesn’t really wanna show up… Hey, get us out!”

However, the group kept in good spirits, as they jokingly discussed who they should eat first, if they were held in the elevator for a long time, while sharing the food and drink they had.
