“[Jack Gleeson who plays boy-king Joffrey] really is lovely. After our takes when he’s mean to me, he’ll come over and have a nice chat with me. It’s kind of surreal. I had one particularly horrible moment with Joffrey, and then he came over afterwards and he said [imitates male Irish accent], “Yes. How are you?” I kind of wish he would do more television interviews so that people can see what he’s really like, because there is so much hate for Joffrey, I feel protective of Jack now. If I were him, I’d be petrified that people would come up and slap me on the street! [Laughs.] I should be his bodyguard.”

 –The lovely Sophie Turner, who plays poor petrified Sansa Stark on “Game Of Thrones.”  Apparently when the series author George R.R. Martin met Gleeson, he told him, “Job well done. Everyone hates you.” [NYMag]

I feel sort of sorry for Jack Gleeson. The 19-year-old Irish actor has been tasked with playing “Game of Thrones” villain Joffrey Baratheon, easily the most loathsome character on TV, well, ever. There is absolutely nothing to like about King Joffrey and he’s not even the kind of gleefully evil type you could maybe sort of root for. He’s a sadistic, vile little punk and I cannot wait to find out how he dies, because you know he must perish eventually. (He has to, right? I mean, evil like that cannot be allowed to live!) John DeVore and I have a new saying and that is, “He’s so Joff” which translates to “What a fucking dick.”  Anyway, I am usually able to separate an actor from his character, but while I think I could control my desire to pummel Gleeson in the face on behalf of the Starks and those two prostitutes (for starters), I don’t think I could hold back my stink-eye. Really, this is a testament to just how good an actor Gleeson is and I hope he’s rewarded come award season. So what’s his story? Here are five things to know about Jack Gleeson. Keep reading »
