American Gods Explains Orlando Jones Exit, Vows to Remain 'One of the Most Diverse Series on TV' in Season 3
American Gods is defending its decision to part ways with cast member Orlando Jones.

Earlier on Saturday, Jones posted an expletive-laced video to Twitter, in which he alleged that he was fired from the series because new showrunner Charles “Chic” Eglee thought his character Mr. Nancy sent “the wrong message” to “black America.” In response, a spokesperson for the Fremantle-produced Starz drama tells TVLine that Jones’ option for Season 3 was not picked up because the upcoming run of episodes will focus on a portion of the book that does not include Mr. Nancy, among several other characters that appeared

Game of Thrones star Iwan Rheon has signed on for a role in the upcoming third season of Starz’s American Gods, where he is set to play the “charming, good-natured leprechaun” Liam Doyle.

The official character description from Starz calls Doyle “a charming, good-natured leprechaun who once embraced his stereotypical Lucky Charms, St. Paddy’s Day image [who is] now on a path to a more dignified and honorable existence. That is until he finds himself swept back into our world of gods, luck, and magic.”

Rheon is one of several new additions to the cast of the Neil Gaiman adaptation for its third season, and joins the previously announced Lela Loren, Blythe Danner, Marilyn Manson, Danny Trejo, Dominique Jackson, Julia Sweeney, Herizen Guardiola, Ashley Reyes, Eric Johnson and Wale.

American Gods Adds Game of Thrones Baddie as New Leprechaun Liam Doyle
Iwan Rheon is becoming one lucky bastard.

‘Mermaid’s Curse’ DVD Review

  • Nerdly
Stars: Iwan Rheon, Katelyn Mager, Brendan Taylor, Jessie Fraser, Steve Bradley, Barbara Wallace, Trevor Gemma, Natasha Quirke, Leala Selina, Casey Strandquist | Written by Jessica Leigh Clark-Bojin, Bob Woolsey, Meagan Hotz, Lindsey Mann | Directed by Nicholas Humphries

A horror version of The Little Mermaid sounds like the best and worst idea for a movie but that’s exactly how Mermaid’s Curse is described.

To add some other strangeness to proceedings this story is set in 1930s Oklahoma, America and a family run business that involves five sisters singing and dancing. And we get to watch a lot of 1930s-style singing and dancing, which isn’t exactly what I expected. In among that we get some gangsters who offer to save the family business but as with all gangsters they have some unpleasant conditions to the deal. You might be thinking how exactly this all links up with a mermaid and

Emmy episode analysis: Sophie Turner (‘Game of Thrones’) is displeased with her brother’s new girlfriend in ‘Winterfell’

Emmy episode analysis: Sophie Turner (‘Game of Thrones’) is displeased with her brother’s new girlfriend in ‘Winterfell’
After eight long years the Emmy winds have finally blown in Sophie Turner’s direction and rewarded her with her very first nomination for playing Sansa Stark on “Game of Thrones.” She’s up for Best Drama Supporting Actress, and she’s aiming to be the first non-Peter Dinklage cast member to snatch a statuette with her episode submission, “Winterfell,” the eighth and final season’s premiere.

In this installment, Winterfell welcomes the arrival of Jon (Kit Harington), Daenerys (Emilia Clarke) and her king-sized army, but not at everyone’s pleasure: Sansa immediately senses chemistry between Jon and his newfound queen, whom she’s instantly distrustful of. Her reunion with Tyrion (Peter Dinklage) isn’t so warm and fuzzy either. During a meeting between the council and the Northern lords she expresses her further concerns about having to additionally feed the Dothraki and Unsullied, not to mention Daenerys’s two fully-grown dragons.

Alfie Allen Describes Growing Up on ‘Game of Thrones': ‘It Was My 20s, Really’
This story about Alfie Allen and “Game of Thrones” first appeared in the Down to the Wire issue of TheWrap’s Emmy magazine.

(Allen, Christie and van Houten submitted themselves in the Emmy race; the others were submitted by HBO.)

‘Game Of Thrones’ Chastized by Jessica Chastain & Ava DuVernay Over Rape & Racial Insensitivity

‘Game Of Thrones’ Chastized by Jessica Chastain & Ava DuVernay Over Rape & Racial Insensitivity
Jessica Chastain and Ava DuVernay are taking HBO to task for what they say is the premium cabler’s insensitivity to rape and race on the blockbuster Game of Thrones.

Following Sunday’s “The Last of the Starks” episode, Chastain on Monday criticized the show for using the rape and torture that Sophie Turner’s character, Sansa Stark, endured throughout the series as the reasons for her strength.

Rape is not a tool to make a character stronger. A woman doesn’t need to be victimized in order to become a butterfly. The #littlebird was always a Phoenix. Her prevailing strength is solely because of her. And her alone.#GameOfThrones pic.twitter.com/TVIyt8LYxI

— Jessica Chastain (@jes_chastain) May 7, 2019

Throughout GoT‘s run, the Sansa character has gone through several transformations, from the princess of Winterfell asking to be wed to Prince Joffrey, to the strategic ruler of her family’s house.

Alec Bojalad May 7, 2019

The King in the North, Richard Madden, is in talks to join Marvel's upcoming Eternals film.

The King in the North rides again! 

Variety reports that erstwhile Robb Stark, Richard Madden, is in talks to join the cast of Marvel's The Eternals. Madden joins the previously announced Angelina Jolie and Kumail Nanjiani as part of the cast. 

Madden is of course best known for his role as Robb Stark, Ned Stark's eldest son on Game of Thrones. He portrayed Robb on the show for three seasons until...something very bad happened. Since then the Scottish actor has racked up appearances in British series Sirens and Bodyguard and films like the upcoming Elton John biopic Rocketman.

Marvel has not confirmed the casting but Madden will reportedly be playing an Eternal named Ikaris. Ikaris is a flagship member of the Eternals, appearing all the way back in 1976's Eternals #1 from Jack Kirby.
