Peter Dinklage on Why It’s ‘the Perfect Time’ to End ‘Game of Thrones’

Peter Dinklage on Why It’s ‘the Perfect Time’ to End ‘Game of Thrones’
Game of Thrones” star Peter Dinklage thinks the show is coming to an end at the perfect time.

“It’s time,” the actor said at Variety’s Sundance Film Festival studio. “Storywise, not just for all our lives. It’s the perfect time to end it. Sometimes shows stay on a little too long, the jumping-the-shark thing.”

Dinklage plays fan-favorite character Tyrion Lannister in the HBO mega-hit. Over the course of the show’s run, Tyrion has gone from simple Lannister royalty, to the Hand of the King for the reviled Joffrey Baratheon, to a patricidal fugitive, and now stands as the Hand of the Queen to Daenerys Targaryen. Dinklage added in the interview that it’s never easy saying goodbye to such a beloved character.

“It’s bittersweet when it’s time to move on with everything,” he said. “It’s always the sad part of our business, because you get pockets of great people for short

‘Saturday Night Live’ Review: Unsurprisingly, Jessica Chastain Makes Quite The First (Time Hosting) Impression

‘Saturday Night Live’ Review: Unsurprisingly, Jessica Chastain Makes Quite The First (Time Hosting) Impression
Like with Sam Rockwell last week, this episode of “SNL” works very well to make Jessica Chastain a true part of the show — not just a necessary semi-presence — and make sure that her voice is clear in her sketches. And you know what? As it turns out, Jessica Chastain’s comedic voice (in addition to her voice as a feminist) is pretty weird. Especially when she starts doing voices.

Host: Jessica Chastain

Before Chastain starts doing voices, she’s got to start doing a musical monologue. You know the deal by now, gentle “SNL” viewers. But, said monologue does involve the forever jam “You Don’t Own Me.” And before it becomes a musical number, you’ve got Chastain’s brief aside about wanting to play the nagging girlfriend as opposed to the strong female for once. That particular moment is kind of like Sam Rockwell’s monologue noting he

Joel McHale to Host Unscripted Weekly Netflix Variety/Talk Show

Joel McHale is best known for his 100 appearances on the TV series “Community” though he recently finished up a stint with “The Great Indoors.” Netflix, always on the prowl for new, original programming, decided to give McHale an opportunity to host a show about the pop culture and the general craziness of the world today.

Mo’Nique Calls for Netflix Boycott Amid Pay Disparity Claim

Mo’Nique is calling for a boycott of Netflix, alleging that she’s not getting offered the same pay as white and male comedians.

“I am asking that you stand with me and boycott Netflix for gender bias and color bias,” she said in a video posted on Instagram. “I was offered a $500,000 deal last week to do a comedy special. However, Amy Schumer was offered $11 million, Chris Rock and Dave Chappelle $20 million.”

Schumer renegotiated the deal, ultimately landing $13 million.

“[Schumer] said, ‘I shouldn’t get what the men are getting, because they’re legends, but I should get more,’ and Netflix agreed,” said Mo’Nique. “When we asked Netflix to explain the difference, why the money was so different, they said, ‘Well, we believe that’s what Mo’Nique will bring.

Facebook Watch is Quietly Turning into Its Next Hit

The first time I saw the phrase “Facebook Watch” I thought Facebook began competing with Apple. But Facebook knows its audience and has created an app that Facebook members can use to find their favorite shows and watch them online. It debuted in August of last year and has received more attention than its marketers expected. Of course, it was silly of me to think Facebook would move into the hardware arena against Apple. As it turns out, they are targeting YouTube viewers. (Hey, at least I chose one of the Big 3 tech competitors.) After research done by Morgan
