Celebrate Independence Day With ‘Game of Thrones’ Actors Speaking in American Accents

By

Emilia Clarke, best known as Daenerys Targaryen of Game of Thrones fame, was on Jimmy Kimmel Live last night, and apart from the fact that she’s pretty much unrecognizable with her natural dark hair, her appearance was most notable for a hitherto undisplayed talent: she does a pretty killer Valley Girl accent. Watching the regal and oh-so-English Daenerys bust out her best Moon Unit Zappa impersonation is kinda disconcerting, but it got us thinking about similar examples, because, y’know, 4th of July and America and all that. ‘Murca!

Give the Reddit User Who Photoshopped Every ‘Game of Thrones’ Character Into Nicolas Cage a Nobel

By

Hats off to CarlosDanger100, the brave Reddit poster who finally stepped up and did what somebody should have months — nay, years — ago: photoshopped the entire cast of Game of Thrones into Nicolas Cage in period costume. Find the full roster here, from Tyrion Cage to Arya Cage to, finally, just plain Cage (née Hodor). It’s like the best Face/Off sequel ever, with more dragons and no John Travolta!

How Many Characters From the ‘Game of Thrones’ Pilot Are Still Alive?

By

At some point during another blood-soaked Game of Thrones season finale, the thought occurred to me (and many others, I expect): how long until literally no one from the pilot is left alive? The show is, after all, famous for killing off its main characters left, right, and center, and there’s only so many they can slaughter before we’re left with an entirely new cast.

‘Game of Thrones’ Season 5 Finale Recap: “Mother’s Mercy”

By

What a happy, uplifting episode! Arya gets her sweet revenge, Jaime and Myrcella have a bonding moment, and everyone’s OTP is finally reunited. (Varion 4eva!!!!) I feel totally satisfied by “Mother’s Mercy” and fully prepared to go ten months without any follow-up to that final shot. Just kidding! Nothing matters and everyone we love will die and/or have a stranger’s penis waved at them as part of a public shaming ritual one… Read More

Let’s Overanalyze These ‘Game of Thrones’ Season Finale Photos!

By

Starting Sunday at 10 PM Eastern, HBO will cruelly deprive us of fresh #content to anticipate, criticize, and logic into elaborate metaphors for climate change for ten whole months. The gap between Game of Thrones seasons is long and full of terrors, so before Sunday’s finale, we’re taking every chance to comb through every maddening frame of this series while we still can. Luckily, HBO just released pictures of this week’s finale that hint at the fallout from Episode 9’s stadium-burner. Here’s what we got out of these eight stills.

There’s a New Statue of Liberty: Links You Need to See

By

Ah, the art of letter writing: not lost so much as strangely distorted and reframed by the times. Today, there’s an open letter to GOT‘s White Walker Army (which unveiled some of its strength this past Sunday during the C.G.I. massacre at Hardhome) in The New Yorker. “We dread your appearance not just because you threaten Jon Snow and his cohorts,” writes Sarah Larson, “but because you threaten to drag the show we love further into a realm that we find tedious.” The White Walker Army has yet to tweet a response. Meanwhile, a real-life letter from Frank Sinatra to Mia Farrow is on the auction block for an estimated $3,000-$4,000. Pulling the old White Walker Army, Mia Farrow has also not commented on Twitter about the impending sale.
