I feel bad for anyone who isn’t a die hard fan of HBO’s ‘Game Of Thrones.’ The last two seasons have been so beautifully scripted, so wonderfully acted, that it’s a real pain having to wait a year for the show’s return. That’s the one thing I’d change about the series – the mammoth waits for new seasons. But it’s proven itself worth the wait lately, what with all its Emmy Awards from Qarth to the Moon Door. It’s an incredible series that’s hitting all the right notes, but don’t take my word for it – ask the cast how awesome their show is. I’m sure with the huge pay upgrades they just received, they’ll have nothing but nice things to say about their jobs. (more…)
It all started with a fantastic short Pixels back in 2010 by film maker Patrick Jean. Don’t worry if you haven’t seen it yet, we’ve embedded that short for you below. From there it quickly moved into development over at Columbia pictures and Happy Madison Productions. That’s right Adam Sandler and company are bringing this Pixel short concept to the big screen.

The first in what will certainly be a series of teasers, behind the scenes, cast interviews, and what ever other promotional gimmickry that HBO’s talented promotional staff can come up with for Game of Thrones has hit the net and all I can say is . . .
BRING IT ON!!!!
I want to see every morsel and scrap that HBO is willing to feed me. I will gladly follow that breadcrumb trail throught he forest right into the HBO promotional witch oven while singing old Germanic nursery rhymes.
NerdBastards would like to officially declare this the:
“Year of Dinkladge”
Co-Starring in HBO’s Game of Thrones, wife pregnant with their first child, an Emmy for Best Supporting Actor for his role in Game of Thrones, and now crowned with GQ’s “Stud of the Year” award, Peter Dinkladge is clearly on top of his Hollywood world.
When talking with GQ about his studliness Peter responded,
“STUD?!” (insert loudly repeated “STUD” a few times).
“I feel as much of a stud as… I can’t come up with a metaphor. That’s how lacking in studliness I am.”
The video below is a fantastic look into Peter and his sense of humor. Surrounded by beautiful women in lingerie he talks of his favorite television shows and just gives up, because who is really listening to him while these lovely ladies stand behind him. Check out how Peter’s eyes grab a quick look at the 45 second mark. That glance confirms his studliness, he knows you see him look, and he’s cool with it.
Captain America was a summer time hit and plans for the second installment in the hopefully long series of sequels is in the script writing stages. “Captain America – First Avenger” co-writer Christopher Markus has been kicking around an idea that this NerdBastard can get behind because it involves two of my favorites. Markus said:
“I love MODOK and I think you could make a terrifying movie with MODOK but nobody seems to be on my side at the moment.”
Markus is referring to MODOK, the outrageously weird villain created by the cabal of mad scientists AIM (Advanced Idea Mechanics). MODOK’s name is an acronym for Mental Organism Designed Only for Killing. Stan, Jack, and all those early Marvel creaters loved acronyms, they were mad for them!
Markus also has his first choice for casting, “Game of Thrones” star Peter Dinklage:
“I will win you over to Peter Dinklage as MODOK. If he came around the corner and you saw him floating there you would be terrified. It would be amazing.”
Markus went on to say:
”In this movie, the great thing is [the visual effects and makeup team] really pulled off the Red Skull. It doesn’t look like a mask. it looks like it’s fully integrated into his flesh. And I want to see what they can do with MODOK.”
This NerdBastard would love to see Dinkladge as MODOK in the next Captain America movie. He would nail it! Considering that Arnim Zola was in the first movie and lived through it, he could easily come back in the sequel and be tied into the creation of MODOK.
