Ed Skrein: 5 Things To Know About The Man Playing “Game Of Thrones”‘ Daario Naharis

Last night's episode of "Game of Thrones" introduced us to an important character from George R. R. Martin's Song of Ice and Fire series, Daario Naharis. Or, as I call him, Not-So-Rapey Blond Fabio. (During the first clip presented above, I referred to him as Rapey Blond Fabio, because of the way he and his brethren were…

Jimmy Fallon Has Made Mindy Kaling’s Jaime Lannister Dreams Come True

Ask and you shall receive. Mindy Kaling loves Jimmy Fallon more than anything in the world right now. The reason? On Thursday, the "Late Night" host granted Kaling’s wish and “asked about” her during his interview with Game of Thrones hunk Nikolaj Coster-Waldau. Kaling, who made her request on Twitter hours before the taping, also received photographic evidence from Fallon. Read more…

The Soapbox: On Women Hating “Game Of Thrones”

"Game of Thrones" is one of my favorite shows on TV, not just right now, but of all time. I must be some kind of magical unicorn, because by virtue of the fact that I have a vagina -- I literally just double-checked and, yep, still packing lady parts -- I am supposed…

“Game Of Thrones” Recap: Jon Snow & Ygritte 4 Ever

Last week on "Game of Thrones," we learned the one thing Jon Snow knows -- cunnilingus -- and this week, Ygritte, the lucky recipient of his tongue lashing, made it clear she's not…

“Saturday Night Live” Plays “Game Of ‘Game Of Thrones'”

Zach Galifianakis first "Saturday Night Live" hosting appearance was maybe one of the funniest things I've ever seen ("That's so Raven?"), so I had high hopes for his second stint this weekend. Alas, the show was off-kilter and random, and not in the good way Zach is generally known for. But one sketch in particular…

Whoa, TV passions collide! While hanging out at Calgary Comic-Con, my BFF, "The Walking Dead"'s Norman Reedus (When are we getting those tacos, boo? Call me!) made a fan pic with "Game Of Thrones"' Cersei and Tyrion Lannister even more nerdtastic by jumping in with a middle finger…

“Game Of Thrones” Recap: Jon Snow Knows Something & Jaime Lannister Explains Himself — Plus, A Whole Lot Of Bare Butts!

I wasn't sure if "Game Of Thrones" could get better than Khaleesi raising fire-breathing dragon hell, but last night's episode might have been even better than the week prior. First of all, SO MANY BARE ASSES. And taut ones at that! Forget getting a bikini…

We’ve Been Saying “Khaleesi” Wrong And Other “Game Of Thrones” Language Trivia

In case you weren’t aware, the fluent High Valyrian we’ve been hearing in Season 3 of HBO’s hit series "Game of Thrones" is completely made up. Much like the Dothraki language, author George R.R. Martin had a few words of the lost city’s tongue in his novel series but it’s David J. Peterson who made it speakable. There’s just one…

The Mother Of Dragons Gets Her Army On “Game Of Thrones”

Last night's new episode of "Game of Thrones" ended in fiery blaze of glory for Daenerys Targaryen. Though absent for most of the episode -- SPOILER ALERT! -- Daenerys appeared in the show's final moments, the dragon she's exchanging for  Kraznos slave army in tow. After she handed over her beloved dragon (who was basically squawking…

Peter Dinklage Doesn’t Believe He’s A Sex Symbol

"They'll say, 'Oh, he's sexy,' but women still go for guys who are 6'2. It's nice that people are thinking outside the box, but I don't believe any of it for a minute." -- Peter Dinklage, from HBO's "Game of Thrones," tells Playboy that he isn't buying claims that he's a sex symbol on the basi…

Gwendolyn Christie Talks About Gender Roles & Fighting For “Game Of Thrones”‘ Brienne

I could write a whole article on how amazingly awesome Brienne of Tarth is just from my own perspective but in this case I’ll leave it up to the actress who plays her on HBO’s "Game of Thrones." Gwendoline Christie did an interview with TV Guide recently where she said some interesting things about gender roles in Westeros. “Brienne…

Daenerys Stormborn Targaryen Roleplayer Seeks Robb Stark Look-A-Like For Iron Throne Sex Romp

At this point in the "Game of Thrones" TV series (season three started a week-and-a-half ago), Daenerys Stormborn Targaryen and Robb Stark have not shared any screentime. (I don't know if they will in the future, as I haven't read all of George R. R. Martin's books.) But they are both vying to rule the Iro…

Yup, Emilia Clarke Is Even More Beautiful Sans Makeup

Peter Dinklage Turns Up Drunk On “Saturday Night Live”

Or more specifically, as Drunk Uncle's brother-in-law Peter Drunklage, who is arguably the drunkest of them all. Kids these days don't even wear garters anymore. And all they care about is "Tumblr me, Tumblr me." As for his Tumblr blog? Full of regret. Marco? Rubio! Amazing.

Tyrion Lannister Is Looking To Connect On LinkedIn

It can be hard out there for an imp. So it makes sense that Tyrion Lannister, the brains behind the whole House of Lannister operation, might be looking for a new gig via the career site LinkedIn. We found Tyrion's profile (which was sadly taken down shortly thereafter), and a couple of other "Game of…

5 Things We Learned At The “Game Of Thrones” Exhibit

Yesterday, Amelia and I went to the traveling "Game of Thrones" exhibition, because we are queen nerds who love nerding out about Khaleesi, Jon Snow, Cersei and the rest of the gang. The "GoT" exhibit's made a major splash in NYC, with people lining up down the street and around the block for…

If Websites Existed In “Game Of Thrones”‘ Westeros

Caldwell Tanner didn’t use HBO’s Join the Realm website to create these unique House Sigils. Instead, he came up with his own designs for what popular websites might hang from their proverbial castle walls if they lived in the world of "Game of Thrones." And we decided to join in on the fun. Look at the House…
