God, Conan O’Brien must have some serious dirt on “Game of Thrones” creator George R.R. Martin, because his crew at Team Coco managed to get the author to spill a boatload of spoilers about the series. Seriously, do not click play unless you want to know what kind of pet Joffrey is going to adopt, who’s going to play Daenarys when the character is rebooted after season four, and what hobby sexy Jaime Lannister takes up now that he has some free time.

God I love George R. R. Martin, creator of the “Game Of Thrones” book series A Song of Ice and Fire. The bearded longshoreman-esque super nerd appeared on “Conan” last night to discuss the most recent episode of “Game of Thrones,” in which three major characters were slaughtered in a scene best described as totally fucking gruesome. Martin can’t help but giggle as he watches the various fan reactions posted on YouTube. Such an adorable sadist he is!
After the jump, Martin talks about why he likes to kill off beloved characters, though he admits it’s gotten harder since he’s gotten to know the actors who play them on the TV show. Keep reading »
Much fuss has been made about the lack of female representation in the new movie “Star Trek Into Darkness.” While I adored the movie — and Winona and I both think that it’s kind of a chick flick — I completely agree that there should have been more women in the movie and that the ones in the film should have been given more to do. (Thankfully, the various “Star Trek” series have taught us plenty of feminist lessons over the years.) One of the scenes that has bothered a lot of feminist fans of the series is the one in which Alice Eve’s character, Carol Marcus, appears in just a bra and panties for seemingly no reason but to titillate. J.J. Abrams responded to the hullabaloo on “Conan” last night, by debuting a deleted scene from the film in which Benedict Cumberbatch’s character is seen showering. Droooooool. More — real!!! — wet ‘n’ wild sexy mole rat action, please! [Conan]
During a recent appearance on “Conan,” Heather Graham talked about her new screenplay, which draws on her personal experience of conquering her sexual hangups after growing up Catholic. “One thing that’s in my script is that I went to some funny different kinds of female empowerment classes,” she revealed. “I went to one where they do little exercises like, ‘Let’s honor your breasts’. So you talk to another woman and you go, ‘I honor your beautiful breasts. They honor me and they honor you.’ There was this book that we read, it was called, ‘Extended Massive Orgasm,’ and it basically teaches women how to have an orgasm for, like, an hour.” Keep reading »
Can’t remember how to pronounce Jake Gyllenhaal’s last name? Just pretend you’re the Swedish Chef from “Sesame Street” and you’ll probably be close.
Let this be a lesson: if you intend on surprising your girlfriend with a proposal while attending a taping of “Conan,” make sure you emphasize that the host should be subtle when handing you the mic. Still, so cute. [Team Coco]
