'Game of Thrones': How Pedro Pascal landed season 4's coolest, sexiest new role

Game-of-Thrones-S4-Pedro-Pascal.jpg

Pedro Pascal was really upset. The Chilean actor was a Game of Thrones fan who previously had arcs on CBS’ The Good Wife and USA’s Graceland, but never thought he had a real chance of landing the coveted role of Oberyn Martell — a bold sexy Dornish prince seeking vengeance against the Lannister family for the rape and murder of his sister. So when Pascal taped his audition last year for the new season 4 role, he was dismayed to find his 17 script pages were full of spoilers.

“I was actually really upset the season was spoiled for me,” he recalls. “I was a true audience member of the show and when this audition came around, it still seemed unattainable. So, I put myself on tape with my [iPhone] and I sent it in. It’s impossible not to care because the writing is so good. You just kind of get into it, whether you think you have a chance for it or not.” READ FULL STORY

'Game of Thrones' producers: George R.R. Martin's secret ending is 'absolutely' satisfying -- EXCLUSIVE

game-of-thrones-dragon.jpg

It’s a question George R.R. Martin’s fans have wondered for many years: Will the bestselling author’s five-books-and-counting Song of Ice and Fire saga have a satisfying ending? Will the destination, not just the journey, pay off?

Game of Thrones showrunners David Benioff and Dan Weiss know Martin’s planned final arcs of his as-yet-unwritten story. So we asked them.

First, some context: HBO’s Thrones is about to launch the fourth of a planned seven seasons (possibly eight) on April 6. Martin has two books left to come in his series, The Winds of Winter and A Dream of Spring. When it comes to fan expectations, the Thrones producers are generally quite cautious about getting fans’ hopes up, especially since expectations tend on this saga to be so high already (asked if they’re “confident” season 4 of Thrones is their best yet, Weiss replied, “I wouldn’t say we’re too confident. I would say we’re terrified that it won’t be.”) READ FULL STORY

'Game of Thrones' team: 7 seasons is the plan

How long will HBO’s Game of Thrones run?

Showrunners David Benioff and Dan Weiss tell EW that seven is probably the magic number.

“It feels like this is the midpoint for us,” Benioff says. “If we’re going to go seven seasons, which is the plan, season 4 is right down the middle, the pivot point.”

The seven season goal-line has been floated in the media before, but the writer-producers of the acclaimed fantasy hit series says they’re firmer than before that three more seasons sounds about right. READ FULL STORY

'RuPaul's Drag Race': 'Game of Thrones' star Lena Headey guests on the judging panel -- EXCLUSIVE VIDEO

Somewhere there is a Venn diagram intersection where superfans of RuPaul’s Drag Race and Game of Thrones meet, and you will probably be able to locate that place Monday night by the high-pitched screaming.

Lena Headey, a.k.a. Queen Regent of the Seven Kingdoms Cersei Lannister, is making a guest appearance on the judging panel, which means Ru’s queens are going to have to bow down to Baratheon. Try not to lose your heads, hunties, but we’ve got an exclusive clip of some of Headey’s judgments from tonight’s episode.

New 'Game of Thrones' trailer: 'Do you know what they did to my brother? And my mother?' -- VIDEO

Still steaming about the HBO Go outage that killed your plans to watch True Detective‘s finale? This might help: On Sunday, the cabler premiered another new trailer for the fourth season of Game of Thrones, which premieres in a few short weeks. (They’d better get their server issues sorted out by then, or we will take what is ours, with fire and blood!)

Though the clip doesn’t feature many new revelations, it does include several shots of interest, especially for those who have read George R. R. Martin’s Song of Ice and Fire saga: Sansa (Sophie Turner) mourning her slain family; new character Oberyn Martell (Pedro Pascal) noting that if you can’t protect the ones you love, you must avenge them; Dany (Emilia Clarke) overseeing a catapult attack and swearing to “answer injustice… with justice;” Tyrion (Peter Dinklage) bitterly saying “we mustn’t disappoint Father” over a shot of Tywin (Charles Dance) lounging on the Iron Throne. Also, the dragons (actual dragons) have gotten a lot bigger.

Ben Wyatt loses it over Iron Throne in 'Parks and Rec' deleted scene -- VIDEO

Ben Wyatt’s feelings about Game of Thrones  rival Leslie Knope’s feelings about Joe Biden. So when Leslie gave her husband an exact replica of the Iron Throne — a.k.a. the seat of power in HBO’s fantasy drama Game of Thrones — during Parks and Recreation‘s latest episode, “Anniversaries,” Ben freaked. Out.

We only got to a see a few short moments of his epic reaction on the show itself. Thankfully, NBC has released an extended version of the scene online. In the clip, an overly excited Ben hops around the room and then passes out — just a little! — before jumping back up and sitting in the throne, declaring, “I’m never getting up.” He proceeds to kick Leslie out so he can have some alone time with the throne, then recites a variety of lines from the show in what is apparently his Game of Thrones voice. We’d probably do the same.

Bask in Ben’s joy below:

'Game of Thrones' season 4 main poster unveiled -- it's super threatening!

Don’t hurt us Game of Thrones! HBO’s fantasy hit has released its main key-art marketing poster. It’s a rather more, um, active image than last year’s rather subdued graphic, which some fans criticized (it showed the shadow of a flying dragon). This poster definitely gets your attention.

The release comes on the heels of HBO releasing individual character posters emblazoned with the expression “valar morghulis” — which means “all men must die” in High Valyrian. With this poster, you won’t need your High Valyrian-to-English translation app to understand the message. It promises tears, heartache and a possible raven attack (and also could be seen as a nod to George R.R. Martin’s titles for the third and fourth book in his series — A Storm of Swords and A Feast For Crows).

Here’s the poster and below is a poll so you can tell us what you think: READ FULL STORY

New 'Game of Thrones' trailer: Everyone swears vengeance on everyone -- VIDEO

HBO played a new trailer for season 4 of Game of Thrones last night, and it is a feast for the eyes. Pyramids! Dragons! Jaime Lannister with short hair! Pretty much everybody is swearing some kind of blood vengeance against somebody else. There’s a quick shot of new character Oberyn Martell (Pedro Pascal), who gets the best line: “The Lannisters aren’t the only ones who pay their debts.” There’s also a quick peek at a new character: If you read the books, you’ll be all like “Whoaaaaaaa!” and if not, you’ll be all like “Bwaaaaaah?” Also, swords. All in all, looks like a quiet and uneventful season of television. Watch below: READ FULL STORY
