Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje's resume, which includes stints on Oz, Lost, and Hunted, was strong enough to land him the role of Malko on the upcoming season of Game of Thrones without an audition. "The producers had seen some of the work I've done before and invited me to be a part of it. It was that simple," Akinnuoye-Agbaje told Vulture at the premiere of his latest film Annie on Sunday. "There wasn't an audition process. It was just, Would you like to do this? And Yes! Thank you very much!" Still, he should feel right at home as he's already familiar with a lot of the cast members. "It's epic and there's a lot of actors I've worked with in there," he said. Indeed, Akinnuoye-Agbaje has already worked with Kit Harington (Jon Snow) on Pompeii, as well as Stephen Dillane (Stannis), Patrick Malahide (Balon Greyjoy) and Indira Varma (Ellaria Sand) on Hunted. »

Pity the plaudit givers who still believe in Utopia. The show will not be returning to British screens on Channel 4, despite garnering an international Emmy 2014 on Monday evening for best drama. The second season of the series by Dennis Kelly, developed by Kudos, a part of Elisabeth Murdoch’s Shine Group, finished its run on UK screens in August. The show won an Rts craft and design nod for the first series in 2013 and was nominated for best drama at the Rts awards earlier this year. The second season of the show was one of three international Emmy winners from British shores. While Channel 4 is not returning to Utopia, the broadcaster occupied an awards version of its own imagined state, with its documentary series Educating Yorkshire picking up best non-scripted entertainment at the Emmys. “Both Utopia and Educating Yorkshire have been defining pieces in the creative renewal of Channel 4, »
The highlight of the awards gala at the Hilton New York came when Mad Men stars Christina Hendricks and John Slattery presented the honorary International Emmy Founders award to the show’s creator and executive producer, Matthew Weiner, who is preparing the final episodes of the advertising agency saga to air in 2015.

U.K. drama series “Utopia” has earned the International Emmy Award for best drama series.

Update October 31: Adds Barb Jungr’s show at end.
Tom Stoppard’s 1982 dazzler gets the matinee-comedy treatment from director-of-the-moment Sam Gold in a revival that leaves its attractive stars, both in their Broadway bows, deeply in the lurch. Glib and weirdly chilly for a literate comedy-drama about love, commitment, the sanctity of words and the enduring perfection of “You’ve Lost That Lovin’ Feelin’,” the Roundabout Theatre Company production is as full of ideas as the play itself –- all of them wrong.
Gold’s first bad idea is to launch every scene with a sing-a-long involving most of the characters in this tale of two brittle marriages blown up when the wife in A+B and the husband in C+D fall in love. So the memorable opening scene, in which a man confronts his wife with what he believes is proof of her infidelity, comes only after that dopey chorus, »

It takes real guts for Ewan McGregor and Maggie Gyllenhaal to make their respective Broadway debuts in “The Real Thing,” which opened Thursday at Roundabout's American Airlines Theatre. Tom Stoppard‘s comic meditation on what's the real thing in love, art, and politics has been blessed with Tony Awards in its two previous incarnations on Broadway, with lead actors Jeremy Irons and Glenn Close (1984), as well as Stephen Dillane and Jennifer Ehle (2000), being honored.

Horror Channel have announced their latest rund of UK television premieres for October, including three outstanding supernatural thrillers: Under The Bed, Steven C. Millar’s nightmare of all nightmares, The Gathering, starring Christina Ricci, and the haunting Lovely Molly (my personal fave of the three), from Blair Witch co-director Eduardo Sánchez.
Friday 3rd - The Gathering
Directed by Brian Gilbert (Wilde), this supernatural thriller stars Christina Ricci as Cassie Grant, an American traveller who suffers amnesia when hit by a car. After accepting sanctuary from the family of the car that hit her, Cassie starts hallucinating that terrifying strangers are following her. Is it concussion or second sight? And what do her frightening visions have to do with an ancient church? A riveting performance by Ricci is supported by a stellar cast including Ioan Gruffud, Stephen Dillane and Kerry Fox.

It's a knight to remember as Clive Owen heads the round table in Antoine 'Training Day' Fuqua's rousing reinvention of the legend of King Arthur. Ray Winstone, Ioan Gruffudd and Hugh Dancy assist their liege while Keira Knightley's woad-daubed Guinevere fights by his side like the love child of Lara Croft and Braveheart. Stephen Dillane conjures up a good Merlin and the stunning battle on ice is a standout set-piece. »
Summers span decades. Winters can last a lifetime. And the struggle for the Iron Throne has begun. It will stretch from the south, where heat breeds plots, lust and intrigues; to the vast and savage eastern lands; all the way to the frozen north, where an 800-foot wall of ice protects the kingdom from the dark forces that lie beyond. Kings and queens, knights and renegades, liars, lords and honest men...all will play the 'Game of Thrones.' Peter Dinklage as Tyrion Lannister, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau as Ser Jaime Lannister, Lena Headey as Queen Cersei Lannister, Emilia Clarke as Queen Daenerys Targaryen, Kit Harington as Jon Snow, Aidan Gillen as Lord Petyr Baelish, Charles Dance as Lord Tywin Lannister, Natalie Dormer as Lady Margaery Tyrell, Liam Cunningham as Ser Davos Seaworth, Stephen Dillane as King Stannis Baratheon, Carice van Houten as Lady Melisandre, Alfie Allen as Prince Theon Greyjoy, John Bradley as Samwell Tarly, »
Among many of the services that "Game Of Thrones" has done (boosting George R. R. Martin's book sales, keeping the fake blood industry alive, etc etc), perhaps the greatest is giving new leases of life to veteran stars. The show's hugely expansive cast features a host of recognizable faces, but given the series' enormous popularity, it's likely that people like Diana Rigg, Stephen Dillane, Iain Glen et al are winning over new generations of fans. One of the biggest beneficiaries has to be Charles Dance, who plays steely patriarch Tywin Lannister on the series. Dance's magnetic presence has been seen in major films like "The Jewel In The Crown," "Alien 3" and "Last Action Hero," but he's been giving one of the finest performances of his career as Tywin, and it's revitalized his career, with roles in big films like "Dracula Untold," "The Imitation Game" and "Child 44" on the way. »

That was a fine "Walking Dead" panel. And now, Hall H is going from zombies to White Walkers, or from "Walking Dead" to "Game of Thrones." The panel is supposed to include series masterminds David Benioff and D.B. Weiss, franchise creator George R.R. Martin and a slew of cast members including John Bradley (Samwell Tarly), Gwendoline Christie (Brienne of Tarth), Nikolaj Coster-Waldau (Jaime Lannister), Natalie Dormer (Margaery Tyrell), Kit Harington (Jon Snow), Rose Leslie (Ygritte), Rory McCann (Sandor “The Hound” Clegane), Pedro Pascal (Oberyn Martell), Sophie Turner (Sansa Stark) and Maisie Williams (Arya Stark).

When King Stannis Baratheon (Stephen Dillane) and Davos Seaworth (Liam Cunningham) led an army North, saving the men of the Night's Watch (and all of Westeros) from the Wildling attack, Jon Snow's storyline expanded. But, after spending so many seasons with a very separate arc, finally working with actors from another major "GoT" storyline took a moment to get used to.
