"Game of Thrones" season 4 will cast a new character from "A Dance with Dragons," the fifth book in the "A Song of Ice and Fire" series written by George R.R. Martin, in order to further develop Theon Greyjoy's storyline in "Game of Thrones" season 4.
Who has been recast?
Colonel Meow passed away yesterday evening. I will post more about the details when I've had a few days to grieve. Thank you so much for your understanding, Minions. Your love and support has meant the world to us both. -Slave Beast
You might want to treat yo’self to a box of Kleenex: It is time to bid adieu to Chris Traeger, literally the most optimistic (and fastest) person in Pawnee, and Ann Perkins (Ann Perkins!), you beautiful, naïve, sophisticated newborn baby. Yes, the last episode of Parks and Recreation featuring Rob Lowe and Rashida Jones airs tonight at 8:30 p.m. on NBC, as Chris and Ann ride off together into the Midwest sunset (before Lowe becomes a tennis pro and Jones joins the LAPD).
“It was exactly as bittersweet as I imagined it would be,” executive producer Michael Schur says of filming the pair’s final installment. “It was as bitter and as sweet. And it was as celebratory as you can be while still being a little sad.” How will Knope cope without her best friend? Status: Unclear. In the meantime, Leslie (Amy Poehler) will attempt to send off Ann with an over-the-big-top bash and to make good on an old promise, while Ben (Adam Scott), Ron (Nick Offerman), and Andy (Chris Pratt) find that giving a goodbye gift to Chris is harder than they thought. What else can you expect from this farewell episode, titled “Ann and Chris”? Schur dropped 15 hints to EW:
1. “Leslie has planned a night of surprises for Ann, and the biggest surprise will bring their friendship full-circle. They end up going on a crazy, town-wide mission and run into a few old friends.”
2. “Leslie is the only person in the world who could throw a party that has the Easter Bunny, a New Year’s Eve countdown clock and a Presidents’ Day booth at one event. She has hired a lot of people to help with the party, including the least likely Easter Bunny portrayer in Pawnee.”
3. “Over the course of the episode, you’ll learn the only three items that Ron considers appropriate gifts for people. One of them is an index card.”
4. “For one last glorious time, you get to see what it’s like when Chris Traeger dances.”
5. “Among the parting gifts that Leslie has for Ann are 103 scrapbooks, with titles like ‘The Sisterhood of The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants,’ ‘Eat, Read Eat, Pray, Love, Talk,’ and ‘Rachel Got Off the Plane: Choice, Chance and Romance in Post-Clinton America.’”
6. “It’s not quite the same as what Leslie does for Ann, but Ben figures out the proper way to send Chris off to his new city.”
7. “April (Aubrey Plaza) helps Ann pack. Ann didn’t ask her to.”
8. “Andy and Ann have a final conversation in which Andy gives her a farewell that’s very fitting for their relationship.”
9. “Larry (Jim O’Heir) gives Ann an incredibly heartfelt emotional speech. Ten seconds later, he’s crying for an entirely different reason.”
10. “Donna (Retta) is saved by Ann from wandering down a fruitless path.”
11. “Tom (Aziz Ansari) receives the perfect gift from Chris, which makes him want to be a thoughtful person for the first time in his life.”
12. “You learn a revelation about Ann’s love life that’s so secret, not even Leslie knew.”
13. “For the second time in the last year, Chris gets to impersonate a famous historical figure.”
14. “Ann introduces her new WWE-style wrestling move: The Pregnant Headlock.”
15. “Without giving away names, someone cries and another person chastises the crier for getting salt water on a piece of wood.”

Ronan Farrow certainly brought the laughs during an appearance on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon on Wednesday, Jan. 29.
The future MSNBC host dished on a wide range of topics, from his unique childhood to his upcoming news show.
"I had siblings from South Asia, from East Asia, from depressed communities around America," the 26-year-old told Jimmy Fallon about his 12 brothers and sisters. "And you know, we'd have long conversations."
He continued:"My sister Quincy, who is black, would get called the N-word at school and we'd talk for hours, and my sister Frankie, who's blind, would chime in an hour into a conversation about race and be like 'wait, Quincy's black?'" Farrow recalled as Fallon, and the audience, reacted with a big chuckle.
"Still haven't told her what color I am," the 26-year-old quipped.
Jokes aside—for a brief moment—Farrow recalled enrolling in college at age eleven but jokingly admitted that he was "so young, so drunk."
"You've got it together man," the funnyman told Mia Farrow's son after he spoke about attending law school at age sixteen and his extensive political background.
"I'm just following your footsteps, this was all a plan to become second fiddle to you," Farrow responded.
Japanese figure skater Miki Ando greeted the stars of Rush with flower bouquets on the red carpet for the Tokyo premiere of Rush.
The film centers on the 1976 F1 championship and is all about human drama and two genius drivers. Howard sought to make the audience feel the world of F1 as well as the '70s.
Of their trip to Japan, Hemsworth noted that he enjoyed some sumo matches and joked that he would have to put on a few pounds before participating in it. Bruhl, who runs and owns a tapas restaurant in Berlin, found himself charmed by the local cuisine.
Rush opens in Japan on February 7.
Michael Pitt is returning to TV in a major role on NBC’s dark thriller Hannibal.
Pitt is playing the character of Mason Verger, an unstable wealthy patient of Dr. Hannibal Lecter (Mads Mikkelsen) who begins a dangerous cat-and-mouse game with the deadly serial killer.
Pitt was last seen on TV starring in HBO’s Boardwalk Empire as Jimmy Darmody. He also co-starred in the 2012 film Seven Psychopaths.
The Mason Verger role will be introduced late in the upcoming second season, which finds FBI profiler Will Graham (Hugh Dancy) in prison, framed for Lecter’s crimes, while the doctor advises the agency on cases. Gary Oldman previously played an older version of Mason Verger in the 2001 Hannibal film, which is based on Thomas Harris’ Hannibal novel. NBC’s Hannibal timeline precedes the events in the film and is also set before the events in Thomas’ Red Dragon so this is Mason how we’ve never seen him before (a cast description for the role compared him to the way Andrew Scott played Moriarty on Sherlock). Recently Hannibal also cast Verger’s sister Margo, who is played by relative newcomer Katharine Isabelle.
Other guest stars in season 2 include the return of Gillian Anderson as Hannibal’s shrink, as well as Jeremy Davies. Hannibal returns Feb. 28.
Sally is the new Ted!
Casting is officially underway on How I Met Your Dad, CBS’ in-the-works spin-off of How I Met Your Mother, and — per just-released casting intel — the soul mate-searching character at the center of the potential series is a twentysomething named Sally.
SALLY | She’s vibrant, messy and unpredictable — a “female Peter Pan who has never grown up and has no idea of where she’s going in life.” She’s thinking of calling it quits with her husband of a year, Gavin. She’ll lean on her circle of friends for advice and support through the inevitable divorce. That circle includes…
JULIET | Sally’s sexy, flamboyant, energetic, party-girl BFF. She runs a successful fashion blog. She’s delighted to learn Sally is ending things with the terminally boring Gavin.
DANNY | Sally’s older gay brother, a Type A, overachieving lawyer whom she shares little in common with. They nonetheless share a tight bond, although Sally’s decision to move in with Danny after her split with Gavin promises to test that bond.
TODD | Danny’s warm, outgoing husband and one of Sally’s closest friends from college. Unlike Danny, Todd welcomes Sally into their home.
FRANK | The head of IT for Juliet’s fashion blog. He’s a hot nerd. He has genuine feelings for Sally, but it’s a one-sided flirtation. At least for the moment.
NARRATOR | It’s Sally from the future. She’s reliving the events of her past to her kids.
While the rumor mill churned with Bryan Cranston, and other older, balder actors, it looks like Zack Snyder and co. have thrown a huge curveball to fans when it comes to Lex Luthor, the long expected villain of "Batman Vs. Superman": he's going to be much younger than you thought.
Warner Bros. has announced today that Jesse Eisenberg will play Lex Luthor in the upcoming "Man Of Steel" sequel, with Jeremy Irons also on board in the role of Bruce Wayne's butler, Alfred.
I'm the best female in hip-hop. Sorry, not sorry. I'm better than most of you niggas too. Real Talk.— AZEALIA BANKS (@AZEALIABANKS) January 30, 2014
I'm the only new female rapper with her own voice. All the other girls are doing the post-nicki minaj thing.— AZEALIA BANKS (@AZEALIABANKS) January 30, 2014
Azealia Banks is back at it again. She knows exactly what buttons to push to make controversy on Twitter. Following her recent rant against Universal Records, where she begged someone from Sony to take over her deal, she's been on Twitter today declaring herself as the best female rapper in the game.
The thing is, Azealia hasn't really been dropping music lately so how can we judge this statement? Last time we heard from Ms. Banks was when she hopped on Britney Spears'"Work Bitch" for a remix and that was in October. This lack of music could be blamed on her major label issues, Azealia herself stated on Twitter, "My fans really need some new music. I've been gratefully riding off of mixtape fumes for the past two years but I'm more ready than ever....."
Back to the controversy at hand, Azealia took to Twitter to boldly declare, "I'm the best female in hip-hop. Sorry, not sorry. I'm better than most of you niggas too. Real Talk."
She continued, "I'm the only new female rapper with her own voice. All the other girls are doing the post-nicki minaj thing."
Daniel Craig left Kate Moss a voicemail message declaring his love for her, a court heard today.
Former News of the World reporter Dan Evans told the Old Bailey he intercepted a message from Mr Craig while working at the Sunday Mirror.
The message said, 'I love you, I love you, I love you,' the court was told.
Mr Craig and supermodel Ms Moss were widely rumoured to be dating for a few months in 2004, but never publicly confirmed the relationship.
Summertime happiness! Lana Del Rey is secretly engaged to boyfriend Barrie-James O'Neill -- and has been since the warmer months, multiple sources tell Us Weekly exclusively.
The "Summertime Sadness" singer, 27, became engaged to O'Neill -- who sings and plays guitar in the Scottish band Kassidy -- last summer. (Del Rey's rep didn't respond to requests for comment.)
Del Rey and O'Neill reportedly began dating in 2011. The couple sparked engagement rumors in July 2013 when they were photographed house-hunting together in L.A. with Del Rey wearing a diamond sparkler on her ring finger.
Though the retro-glam New York native typically sings about loss in her broody, atmospheric songs, Del Rey noted to Complex magazine in January 2012 that her "Off to the Races" track on her Born to Die album is about euphoric love.
"When I found somebody who I fell in love with, it made me feel different than I felt the rest of the day. It was electrifying. That's what inspired the 'Off to the Races' melodies," she explained. "That's one of the times when you're feeling electrified by someone else and they make you happy to be alive."
It's the biggest sports media week of the year, so of course Tim Tebow is taking center stage.
The former NFL quarterback co-hosted Good Morning America on Friday, taking part in everything from breaking down the Super Bowl to a "food fight" with NFL legend Joe Montana.
With his playing days over for now, Tebow has been all over recently, as he signed on with ESPN to be an analyst for college football.
Much like some of the reviews of Tebow's work on College Gameday for ESPN, people seemed impressed by the job the former New York Jet quarterback did.
Tebow did a segment with former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Steve Young on what it takes to play in the Super Bowl -- which was a little weird, seeing as Tebow has yet to make it to the big game, and maybe never will.
Tebow then got into a "food fight" with yet another Super Bowl wining quarterback in Joe Montana, as the two quarterbacks squared off in an a cooking competition.
After losing to Montana in the food competition, and dodging a Super Bowl prediction with Young, it's safe to say Tebow went 0-2 against the Super Bowl champion quarterbacks.
Despite the losses, the initial reviews of Tebow on Good Morning America seemed positive:
To be honest Tim Tebow did great on 'Good Morning America'...he has a future in fluffy news TV like this. Not being an analyst on ESPN.— Erika Esola (@emesola) January 31, 2014
Please don't unfollow me, but I watched a few minute of Tim Tebow on "Good Morning America" this morning and thought he was very good.— Jimmy Traina (@JimmyTraina) January 31, 2014
Videos won't embed, check them out at the source. He was AMAZING tbh.
Amanda Knox appeared on Good Morning America Friday to speak with anchor Robin Roberts about her recent conviction.
Yesterday, Knox was found guilty of murder and sentenced to more than 28 years in prison for the 2007 murder of roommate Meredith Kercher. Knox, now 26, spent four years in an Italian prison before she was freed by an appeal. Italy’s supreme court then ordered a re-trial, and that’s when Knox was found guilty by an appeals court.
Knox told Roberts that she was with her family when she found out the latest verdict.”I’m going through waves of emotion in response to it,” Knox said. “My first reaction was, ‘no, this is wrong, and I’m going to do everything I can to prove that it is.’”
Raffaele Sollecito, Knox’s former boyfriend who is still in Italy, was also found guilty yesterday. “I don’t know what I would do if they imprisoned him,” Knox said. “It’s maddening.”
Knox’s voice quivered at points in the interview as she discussed the possibility of imprisonment and her sympathy for Kercher’s family.
“I feel like the only way that any of us can get any of sort of acknowledgement and understanding and consolation is through understanding,” Knox said in the interview’s conclusion. “I understand that this is really difficult, and I can only testify to what happened to me, and hope that people believe me. But I think the answers are out there.”
Watch the full interview below:
MODs, I know there was already a post about this, but this includes her response on GMA this morning. I really think that she's innocent and that the entire case is just a misuse of justice in order to save face. I also feel super sorry for Meridith and her family :(
The pop icon has just become the first person to reach 50 million Twitter followers as of Friday.
She pulled ahead of longtime champ Justin Bieber back at the start of November when both had around 46.5 million followers and she hasn’t stopped adding fans. But don’t give up on the Beliebers, they are still making an effort — the singer is approaching the big 5-0 mark with 49.2 million users. According to Twitter Counter, Katy added 800,000 new followers this week alone.
Lady Gaga’s reign as queen of the social media site appears to be fading even more. The Biebs’ longtime comepetitor for the number one slot has now slipped to fourth, with President Barack Obama overtaking Mother Monster at 41.3 million users.
Congrats on your latest milestone Katy!
nicholson101: We have a different relationship then most. I’m what he could have been if he didn’t follow his dreams. Construction worker never leaving Stratford. It’s hard to see everyone after him because of the decisions he has made. We were all young once but never lived in a corrupted world of jealously, hate and not knowing the truth. Full of talent but sheltered from the world cause everyone is jealous of the fame and fortune but most of all the pure gift this cat brings to people around him. Even for his age I have learned so much especially a life with freedom. He has a great team around him as he makes the transitions from boy to man. ~pick your path for your future and stick with it. Make choices for your self and be happy *Leo Nicholson #muchrespect #lilbro #growing
he ruined his perfect chest :(
Taylor Swift holds no grudge against Jennifer Lawrence for photobombing her Golden Globes interview with Ryan Seacrest.
The "All Too Well" singer addressed the moment when Lawrence crept up behind her during the awards pre-show while she was interviewing with Seacrest at the Grammy Awards red carpet.
"[Lawrence] is the greatest, oh my God," she said when asked about her viral encounter with the acclaimed actress.
Asked if she had any message for Seacrest to deliver to the Hunger Games star at the Oscars, Swift turned to the camera and said:
"Thanks for your friendship and thanks for making amazing terrifying faces behind me on camera when I am trying to do an interview and not mess up. Good luck! I hope you win. I hope you win everything all the time!"
Cyrus appeared on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno last night, and Leno asked her about Bieber’s recent legal troubles. Cyrus voiced what many people have thought: Can’t he people he can pay to make sure he stays out of trouble? Barring that, “Party at your house. Buy a house, and add a club to it,” she said to audience cheers.
That must be what Cyrus is doing post-salvia scandal in 2010 (a simpler time!). Noting she’s seen compilations of celebrity mug shots online, she points out that for all the scandalous headlines she generates, “I don’t see a Miley mug shot yet!”
“I get the most flack of anybody,” she said. “I’m not doing anything illegal. I’m doing a lot of s—, but I’m not doing anything illegal. Everything I do is legal in California.”
This isn’t the first time Cyrus has weighed in on Bieber. She told Rolling Stone last fall, “I do mentor him in a way. Because I’ve been doing this s— for a long time, and I already transitioned [to being an adult entertainer], and I don’t think he’s quite done it yet….He’s trying really hard. People don’t take him seriously, but he really can play the drums, he really can play guitar, he really can sing….I tell him that. Like, ‘You don’t want to become a joke. When you go out, don’t start s—. Don’t come in shirtless.’ But the thing is I think boys are, like, seven years behind. So in his head, he’s really, like, 12.”
Harry Potter author JK Rowling is suing the Daily Mail for libel over a story about her time as a struggling single mother living in Edinburgh.
The author is seeking unspecified damages from Associated Newspaper for the story which was first published on the Daily Mail’s website on 28 September 2013.
Rowling is taking the action under her married name Joanne Kathleen Murray.
Mail Online picked up the story from the Gingerbread website where Rowling had written about her experiences as a single mother in Edinburgh before she became famous.
Rowling’s legal team claims that Mail Online and the Daily Mail misrepresented her comments, injured her reputation and caused great distress and embarrassment.
The story “How JK Rowling’s sob story about her past as a single mother has left the churchgoers who cared for her upset and bewildered”, went online at 23:38 and appeared in the following day’s print edition.
According to High Court documents, Rowling’s legal team said: “In their natural and ordinary meaning, and in the context in which they appeared, the said words meant and were understood to mean that the claimant had given a knowingly false account of her time as a single mother in Edinburgh in which she falsely and inexcusably accused her fellow churchgoers of behaving in a bigoted, unchristian manner towards her, of stigmatising her and cruelly taunting her for being a single mother.”
Rowling’s legal team claimed the author “has been gravely injured in her reputation and has been caused great distress and embarrassment” by the article.
The document continues: “Not only is the allegation complained of self-evidently of a serious nature, but it was premised on a false picture of the claimant’s article on the Gingerbread website. As the defendant's journalist must have known (since he had read the article) the claimant had not accused her fellow churchgoers of ‘stigmatising’ or ‘cruelly taunting’ her; rather, she had referred to a single occasion involving a woman who had visited the church one day whilst she was working there. There was thus no basis in fact for the central premise of the article.”
Rowling’s legal team denied that any of the congregation who had helped her previously had been “upset and bewildered” or “surprised and confused” by the post on Gingerbread as claimed in the Mail Online and the Daily Mail.
The document states that a woman quoted in both versions of the story had neither been “upset” or “bewildered” and claims that the newspaper had been “misleading and unfair” by accusing Rowling of “making knowingly false statements”.
According to the document: “When the defendant’s journalist contacted the claimant’s representative in advance of publication he failed to put to her or offer any opportunity to comment on the allegations he was proposing to publish.
“This was contrary to basic standards of fair and responsible journalism. Had he done so the claimant would have been able to repeat that which was already clear from the content of her Gingerbread article – that she had made no complaint about her treatment at the hands of the members of her church (indeed quite to the contrary). In the teeth of the claimant’s express denial the defendant would not have been able to run a story making the allegations that it did.”
Rowling’s legal team said the article is still being published on the Mail Online and they want an injunction to prevent the publication of “the same or any similar defamatory words”.
The Daily Mail did not provide a comment at the time of publication.
Acclaimed director Hayao Miyazaki let audiences know how he really feels about the anime industry in a recent television interview. According to the recent retiree, anime suffers because industry staff is made up of otaku who "don't spend time watching real people" and are "humans who can't stand looking at other humans."
Miyazaki explained that animating people can only be done by those who spend time observing others, something he feels the industry lacks because it's "full of otaku."
Miyazaki is not known for biting his tongue. Other things Miyazaki doesn't like include:
The Abe Administration, the Iraq War, and the iPad, for which he compared the gestures to masturbation.
Miyazaki whyyyyy.......you should know anime suffers cuz of ppl like Mere Doyle.
