Max von Sydow joins Game of Thrones | Television & radio | The Guardian

While rumours about the status of Jon Snow continue to swirl, the rest of Game of Thrones’s sixth season is beginning to take shape. The latest star to join the cast? Max von Sydow, the renowned actor with a long career of playing slightly haunted characters in everything from the Exorcist to Minority Report.

According to Entertainment Weekly, von Sydow will play the Three-Eyed Raven, the supernatural mentor of Brann Stark. His is a character we have already encountered – albeit very briefly – in Game of Thrones’s fourth season, though the fact that the show’s creators have chosen an actor with the clout of von Sydow for the part indicates that the Three-Eyed Raven will play a more significant role this time around.

Jimmy Fallon: 10 Facts You May Not Know About 'The Tonight Show' Star

Jimmy Fallon is the heir apparent to The Tonight Show. He is the one man we turn our attention to after a hard day’s work, because if there is one thing Jimmy is good at, it is his ability to make us laugh.

That is perhaps the reason that Fallon, since he was a young kid, had always wanted to appear on Saturday Night Live.

Game of Thrones Walk of Shame: The Woman Who Really Went Through the Streets Naked - NDTV Movies

The dust around the finale episode of the fifth season of Game of Thrones shows no signs of settling yet, and in the wake of the stir created by Queen Cersei's naked 'walk of shame' through King's Landing, an actress named Rebecca Van Cleave has been revealed to have been the nude body double in the scene. In the finale, Cersei Lannister is sentenced to a public penititential walk, naked and with her head shorn, for adultery. The scene has primpted as much viewer comment as the unexpected death of Jon Snow, one of the show's leading and most popular characters.

In an interview to Entertainment Weekly, Ms Van Cleave has spoken at length about standing in as the nude version of Lena Headey, the actress who plays Cersei Lannister on the show, in a gruelling scene that involved walking through crowded streets while being pelted with food and simulated bodily fluids by angry, abusive onlookers.

Jon Stewart rips New York Times in mutlilayered Rubio defense - Yahoo News

Jon Stewart thinks The New York Times has gone waaayyy overboard in its examination of Marco Rubio’s personal life in several big stories this week. Mr. Stewart ripped the paper and political journalism in general on Wednesday night in a very funny and painfully true (to a reporter) segment called “Petty in Print."

First, the soon-to-be-ex-host of "The Daily Show” went after the Gray Lady’s piece on Senator Rubio’s driving habits. This Times exposé showed that since 1997, Rubio and his wife, Jeanette, have accumulated 17 traffic tickets. Of these, 13 went to Jeanette.
