'Game of Thrones' Season 6 Casts 'Spartacus' Star

13 hours ago | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Even though Game of Thrones already has an impressive ensemble cast that includes quite a few actors, the hit HBO series is adding a whole lot more in the upcoming Season 6. We've heard that there will be up to at least 26 new characters. This is good for the show, because it means they can kill off quite a few at lighting speed. With shooting currently taking place in various parts of the world, we've already heard about a few of these new cast additions. And today, we learn of one more. It seems a Spartacus: Vengeance alum is coming aboard.

Game of Thrones Season 5 brought in quite a few new faces to make up for all the ones killed off in the previous four seasons. And this new run of episodes is following suite. So far, we've learned that Downton Abbey's James Faulkner will be making his first appearance as &#160Sam Tarly's father, »

25 great directors working outside mainstream cinema

30 September 2015 2:39 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Meet some of the best directors working today, who haven't gone down the blockbuster movie route...

Ever find it a bit lame when the same big name directors get kicked around for every high profile project? Christopher Nolan, Jj Abrams, maybe the Russo Brothers? With so much focus on blockbuster films these days, getting a major franchise job seems like the main acknowledgement of success for a filmmaker. And yes, both the financial and creative rewards can be great. But there are plenty of other directors out there, doing their own thing, from art house auteurs to Dtv action specialists.

Here are 25 examples.

Lee Hardcastle

Even if you don’t know his name, you’ve probably seen Lee Hardcastle’s ultraviolent claymations shared on social media. He first started getting noticed for his two-minute remake of The Thing, starring the famous stop motion penguin Pingu. Far from just a cheap one-joke mash-up, »

26 years ago today: Bruce Springsteen surprised an Arizona bar with an impromptu jam sesh and a big tip

29 September 2015 5:00 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

The barkeeps and patrons of Matt’s Saloon in Prescott, Ariz. probably thought it was just another normal Friday night, but Sept. 29, 1989 — 26 years ago today — was not another normal night. What made it a rather unusual evening for the sleepy town was the presence of a rock star in Matt’s Saloon: Bruce Springsteen was playing an unannounced performance at the bar. He rolled into town on a motorcycle with some buddies and wound up in a jam session with the house band. Springsteen, wearing a leather vest and a bandana around his neck, played “I’m On Fire” from his 1984 album “Born In The U.S.A.,” but when the band asked him to play “Pink Cadillac,” the rock star said he couldn’t remember the words to his hit song, recalled Denny Orr, the rhythm guitarist for the house band. Orr also said that things “went nuts” in the bar »

'Game of Thrones' Season 6 Set Photos Reveal Huge Spoilers

25 September 2015 4:05 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Ever since the tumultuous events of Game of Thrones' death-filled Season 5 finale, Mother's Milk, there have been several burning questions on the minds of fans. The finale was even more torturous since we can't look ahead to George R.R. Martin's books, as the show has caught up to those story lines and the author has yet to publish the final two novels in his A Song of Fire and Ice series. One of the biggest burning questions from the finale has seemingly been answered, with The Daily Mail posting new photos from the set earlier today. Be warned, there will be plenty of Spoilers if you aren't caught up with the show thus far, so read on at your own risk.

Mother's Milk featured the death of beloved character Jon Snow (Kit Harington), whose death at the hands of his treacherous Night's Watch brothers sent shockwaves throughout the Internet, »

If and when HBO makes a deal with Deadwood creator David Milch to revive the beloved series for a limited run, Kim Dickens will likely be the first cast member to sign on the dotted line.

“I think it’s long overdue,” the Fear The Walking Dead star told me Sunday on the Emmy red carpet. “Let’s do it. We all want to do it.”

Collins' Sex Novels Have Enjoyed Unexpectedly Few Film Versions (The Stud, The Bitch)

21 September 2015 6:44 PM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

Joan Collins in 'The Bitch': Sex tale based on younger sister Jackie Collins' novel. Author Jackie Collins dead at 77: Surprisingly few film and TV adaptations of her bestselling novels Jackie Collins, best known for a series of bestsellers about the dysfunctional sex lives of the rich and famous and for being the younger sister of film and TV star Joan Collins, died of breast cancer on Sept. 19, '15, in Los Angeles. The London-born (Oct. 4, 1937) Collins was 77. Collins' tawdry, female-centered novels – much like those of Danielle Steel and Judith Krantz – were/are immensely popular. According to her website, they have sold more than 500 million copies in 40 countries. And if the increasingly tabloidy BBC is to be believed (nowadays, Wikipedia has become a key source, apparently), every single one of them – 32 in all – appeared on the New York Times' bestseller list. (Collins' own site claims that a mere 30 were included.) Sex »

After months of speculation, we finally know who will be playing Randyll Tarly, the legendary father of Samwell Tarly (John Bradley) in Season 6 of Game of Thrones. Watchers on the Wall reports that Downton Abbey star James Faulkner has signed on to play Randyll Tarly, with Samantha Spiro and Rebecca Benson coming aboard to play Sam's mother and sister, respectively. They join the previously-cast Freddie Stroma, who is playing Samwell's younger brother Dickon Tarly.

The Babadook actress Essie Davis joins Game of Thrones season 6; set photos released

13 September 2015 4:20 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

After being spotted on the set of Game of Thrones, Watchers on the Wall has confirmed that The Babadook actress Essie Davis will be appearing on the show in its upcoming sixth season. 

Davis’s role on the show will certainly be an interesting one, as she is set to play an actress who portrays Cersei Lannister in a traveling theater company. In the casting call, her character is described as a “fun, charismatic rum-drinking actress in the troupe.” 

While Lena Headey plays the actual Cersei Lannister on the show, last season a young version of the character was introduced through a flashback, so Davis is essentially the third actress to play the Lady of Casterly Rock.

Additionally, the site also released a report saying that actor Richard E. Grant, another new addition to the show’s cast, will be playing a “larger-than-life leader of a troupe of actors.” In the theater company, »
