With only a little over two months to go until April 12th’s “Game of Thrones” fifth season premiere, details of what’s to come for Westeros have been scant until today. A trailer leaked online, after airing last night alongside select IMAX screenings of “Game of Thrones” season four episodes, and let’s just say that the fact that it’s set to “Heroes” by David Bowie isn’t even the most epic part.
In a video interview for her cover shoot with TV Guide, “How To Get Away With Murder” star Viola Davis revealed the television show she would most like to be cast on. That show? “Game of Thrones.”
“I would love to be on ‘Game of Thrones.’ I love that show,” Davis said. “I would want to play a character like Diana Rigg, like a really great, no-nonsense, formidable queen. But I’d want to kill somebody. With a spear.”

Theories abound about George R.R. Martin’s plans for the Song of Ice and Fire series, and therefore the Game of Thrones series, but Martin says that the most ridiculous theory of all is that he’s actually finished with the last two books of the series and is sitting on them to create demand. At the 92nd Street Y event for the release of the World of Ice and Fire companion book to the series, Martin said:
