'Game of Thrones' season 4 looks to be continuing the trends of previous season in adapting more and more of creator George R.R. Martin's work out of place. Despite covering a period roughly midway through Martin's third book 'A Storm of Swords,' the HBO fantasy drama has added UK actor Joel Fry in a key role from Martin's fifth book as Hizdahr zo Loraq.

A few days ago gave us a bevy of sneak peeks at 'How I Met Your Mother's ninth and final season premiere "The Locket / Coming Back," though it seems they've saved the best for last in advance of Monday's debut. The latest look at season 9 sees Barney revealing his unsurprising 'Game of Thrones' favorite, as he and Robin plot a dastardly murder that could shake the entire series to its core. Or not.
A few weeks ago we caught a brief look back at 'Game of Thrones' season 3 that went behind the scenes to show us some incredible effects, most notably the massive ice wall that Jon Snow and his Wildling cohorts scaled in "The Climb." Now, yet another, more expansive FX reel for 'Game of Thrones' season 3 has emerged, showing the incredible layers of Dany's dragons, and the massive armies seen over the course of the season!
The moment 'Game of Thrones' season 3 cast Coldplay drummer Will Champion in a cameo role, we had some idea where the musician would pop up in the season. Now, in what's become something of a unique tradition for the series, 'Game of Thrones' season 4 has tapped Icelandic band Sigur Rós for yet another top-secret cameo, though admittedly one with far-less speculation around it.
Whereas 'Game of Thrones' saw fit to release its mammoth cast and character list at Comic-Con last year, season 4 has taken a much more measured approach to revealing its new additions. Case in point, 'Sherlock' star and producer Mark Gatiss was announced for an upcoming role back in mid-July, but only now have details of the actor's role in season 4 come to light. So which of George R.R. Martin's characters will Gatiss bring to light?
Last week we were shocked to learn that 'Game of Thrones' season 4 had tapped 'Treme' star Michiel Huisman' to replace Ed Skrein in the prominent role of Daario Naharis, though it seems the George R.R. Martin-adapted HBO drama has made a mountain of another replacement. Icelandic actor Hafthor Julius Bjornsson will take over the role of Gregor "The Mountain" Clegane, a role that had itself already once been recast, so why all the change?
Just the other day 'Game of Thrones' announced that 'Treme' star Michiel Huisman had joined the fourth season in an unidentified role, one we thought little of considering how secretive casting has been up to now. However, surprising new reports reveal that HBO had reason to keep the character under wraps, as Huisman will replace another actor in a major breaking role from season 3, with plenty more scenes to come!
You know, for an HBO series whose source material has been available in book stores for over a decade, 'Game of Thrones' has become increasingly uptight with its casting. The latest to join season 4 of the HBO fantasy-drama in yet another mystery role is none other than 'Nashville' and 'Treme' star Michiel Huisman, so why all the secrecy?
It's been a good while since we checked in on 'Futurama''s purportedly final season, but with only two episodes remaining in the current run, it looks like the Planet Express gang has saved the best for last! Next Wednesday will see 'Game of Thrones' star Emilia Clarke lending her voice to the far-out series as a new love interest for Zoidberg of all people, and we've got a first look!
When she's not trying to manipulate her bastard fiancee, King Joffrey, or stay out of Cersei's way, 'Game of Thrones' actress Natalie Dormer (aka Margaery Tyrell) is busy landing big-screen gigs. The latest additions to her resume are biggies -- 'The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1' and 'Part 2.'
