George R.R. Martin Says "Game of Thrones" Prequel Pilot Won’t Involve Targaryens, TBD on Dragons

  • The Wrap
George R.R. Martin Says
George R.R. Martin has shared yet another fact about the “Game of Thrones” prequel pilot — which may or may not be titled “The Long Night.”

While discussing his new book, "Fire and Blood" — which catalogs the history of Westeros before the current events of Martin’s "A Song of Ice and Fire" books and David Benioff and D.B. Weiss’ fantasy series — the author teased more about the upcoming project, which is set 10,000 years before “GoT.”

And, well, if you were hoping for a lot of the same elements of “Thrones” in its prequel, you might be disappointed, as this Westeros very different from the one we know now. For one, there won’t be Targaryens and there may not even be dragons, said Martin, who is working with HBO and showrunner Jane Goldman.

Jim Jefferies Feared Trump Would Block His Citizenship — Exclusive

Jim Jefferies Feared Trump Would Block His Citizenship — Exclusive
On “The Jim Jefferies Show” this Tuesday night, the outspoken Australian comedian gets sworn in as an American citizen, a coveted status that he was afraid would be denied him by the President.

“I never mentioned in the show until this moment that I wasn’t a citizen,” Jefferies said in an interview with IndieWire backstage. “I didn’t want a red flag added onto my name. And Trump, I believe, is a petty enough man that he might do something like that. Nixon did this. Nixon started auditing late-night show hosts because they were making jokes about him. Then every single one of their staff got tax audits. So, it’s not beyond the realms of belief that Trump could be as petty as [Nixon was] because there’s just a phone call to be made and a list of people he doesn’t want.

“Like, I heard that John Oliver is not a citizen yet.

Days of Our Lives Spoilers: Goodbye to Paul

Days of Our Lives fans aren’t thrilled about all that Gabi has done to Abigail. We get that she’s mad at her for framing her for murdering Andre, but that was not really Abby.

We don’t really have much to say other than that it was all kinds of disgusting and upsetting, but that’s not really anything that we should focus on now. What Gabi did to her was gross, and

The Best Uses of Joan Jett Songs in Movies or TV

From the 70s on Joan Jett has been all attitude and all awesome when she hits the stage. It’s obvious that she’s slowed down just a tad since she started, she is in her 60s at this point and no doubt feels her age every now and then, but her act has always been one of the most edgy of all time. When she first started out it was all edge, all the time, and she was adamant about creating a rock band of her own composed of only women. People have wondered in the past if that says anything

‘Sex and the City’ Director Details Kim Cattrall Drama, Tension Began Over Parity
Sex and the City” executive producer Michael Patrick King recently appeared on the “Origins” podcast and spoke candidly about the drama between Kim Cattrall and her co-stars. King, who also wrote and directed several episodes and the feature films, says tension between the cast became obvious early on in the show’s run. “Sex and the City” was designed and marketed from the beginning around Sarah Jessica Parker, who was the biggest name of the four central cast members after making a career as a movie star.

“The show doesn’t exist if Sarah Jessica wasn’t the blonde star of the show, that’s number one,” King told “Origins” host James Andrew Miller. “Kim was not at the height of her career, Kristin was under her in terms of notability, Cynthia was a theater actress and their contracts reflected that status.”
