Game of Thrones is arguably one of the best television series to hit cable in years. It is a series that transcends genres, blending equal parts fantasy, action, and historical fiction, all while maintaining several storylines for audiences to bite into. Two of the aspects that initially draw viewers to the series, however, are the depictions of sex and violence, which can be rather explicit and fairly realistic. Those actors who decide to join the show are generally assumed to feel comfortable with this nudity and blood; after all, they did sign up for the series and one would assume that the actors would understand what they were getting into. Well, for one Mother of Dragons, this isn’t the case, and actress Emilia Clarke has opted to skip nude scenes involving her character. Well, now Clark has a few more words to say about sex on television and, as you may guess, they are not in support. (more…)

While Peter Dinklage has been killing it on Game of Thrones, his voice over work in Destiny has left quite a lot to be desired by players. Most chalked it up to the actor taking a job he really wasn’t interested in and when they lob great handfuls of cash in your face for a few hours work in a studio, who can blame him for cashing in. Yesterday the big 2.0 Destiny patch went live with the added replacement of Dinklage’s voice over work as Ghost by veteran voice actor Nolan North. How do the two compare? (more…)
Hey, do you remember Pinball – those coffin-shaped boxes where you hit a silver ball around a chaotic playfield? If you thought this game of skill died out in the 90’s, you’d be wrong. Sure, Pinball machines are no longer as prevalent in arcades, bowling alleys, or bars as they once were; but the culture of Pinball is alive and well. Despite the staggering decline in pinball gaming, new machines are being made all the time. Particularly to promote pop movie and television licenses; with such titles as: The Walking Dead, Avatar, The Hobbit, Star Trek, The Avengers and more.
Now another big license is making its way into Pinball form – which can be best set up by saying this: When you play the Game of Thrones Pinball Machine, you win or you die (Or, just… y’know, put another coin in). (more…)
Winter cannot come any sooner. Fans of HBO‘s Game of Thrones will, sadly, have to wait until 2016 for their beloved show to return, but until then, people will continue to flood the internet with all kinds of theories and possible spoilers (whether true or not). In the latest rumor roundup, there is speculation that George R. R. Martin may have revealed a potential spoiler for season 6. Heed this as your only warning, because beyond these walls are potential spoilers. (more…)
HBO‘s Game of Thrones is taking a different approach to casting for season six of the series. Usually, they cast a relative unknown who then goes on to be incredible and make themselves known to the world. For this sixth season HBO is bringing out the big casting guns with the addition of Ian McShane (Deadwood) last week and now Max Von (OMG!!!) Sydow. What role might he be playing?
*Spoiler warning if you don’t really want to know, don’t click-through. (more…)

It’s no shock that the majority of Game of Thrones fans are still in denial over Jon Snow’s death. There are rumors abound about loopholes and plot twists that could bring him back for Season 6 of the show, which actor Kit Harrington (Jon Snow himself) has said he is not coming back for. However, all hope may not be lost for Snow lovers yet! Two different sources: Watcher on the Wall and Winter is Coming, have posted photos of what looks to be Kit Harrington (the photos are a bit blurry) arriving in Belfast; presumably for the first Game of Thrones Season 6 table read.

For Hellboy fans this will be a sad case of life imitating art. As you’ll recall, when we first meet Professor Broom, as played by John Hurt, in the present day, he’s given a cancer diagnosis. In that fictional instance, the diagnosis was terminal, but now the real-life actor Hurt has himself been diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. Although he’s enjoyed a career on stage and screen spanning nearly six decades, Hurt is widely known for the various nerdy projects he’s been attached to, from Alien to next summer’s Tarzan adaptation. Still busy at the age of 75, Hurt’s message to fans is that he will remain active with his acting work even as he fights his cancer diagnosis. (more…)
Season five of Game of Thrones has come and gone leaving behind a host of revelations, plot twists but mostly bodies in its wake.

Lets talk shop about last night’s finale, and reflect on season five overall. This post is so spoilery it’s not even funny. Valar spoilghulus! (more…)
