[ROLLING STONE:] You guys are shooting in Iceland this year — where you used to live, right?

[RORY McCANN:] I hadn’t shot in Iceland with Game of Thrones before — I’d always shot in Malta or Croatia, and [I] was far too hot in that armor. When I was told I was going to Iceland, I couldn’t believe it. Six or seven years ago I went there to do a Viking film, and at the end of it they were like, “You’re going now?” “No, I’m staying.” “No, no, the job’s over.” [firmly] “No. I’ve got my tent. And I’m staying. Thank you very much.” I phoned my agent and went “Don’t phone me unless I’ve definitely got a job.” He didn’t phone me for a year. [Laughs] “Hello? Anything?” I ended up being a carpenter, building houses. Then their whole market crashed, and I borrowed some money off an actor pal that I met up there and hitched out of the place.

I got there last year to do [this season of] Game of Thrones. I’d hitched out of the place on borrowed money, and suddenly there’s this beautiful blonde driver beside this white Range Rover, all smoked out, going [in Scandinavian accent] “Hello, my name is Herta. Should we go skinny dipping before we go to the hotel?” [Laughs] “That would be lovely, Herta.”

Then I was meeting people over there that still didn’t know me as an actor, they just knew me as the guy who used to go to the library. Some still thought I was a local there. I met old friends again, had my bicycle again, did all my old things again. I only partied on the last night, because I was behaving myself. I thought I was gonna have to get my top off for a scene, so I was working out — I mean, I didn’t even drink water for the last 24 hours. On the day, the director comes up to me, and I’ve got dumbells on set, like [makes weightlifting motions] “YEAH! UHHH! FUCKIN’ READY!!!” He touches me on the shoulder and goes “Rory, I was thinking about it last night — I think we’ll just keep the top on,” and leaves me. “Fucking…I haven’t been out for fucking four months! I haven’t had a beer in fucking three months!”

So that night, Maisie was there, it was our last night in Iceland, it was my one night out…and we got stopped by the police. [Laughs] We were all in a van, we had a designated driver, and we were all drunk — but for Maisie, of course — and singing. The police stopped us, he had his hand on the holster, and the driver went “It’s the cast of Game of Thrones.” “Oh yeah? Open up.” I had the nearest seat. I’ve obviously had a few drinks, and I’m very excited. He looks at me, and I go [booming voice] “Hello! I’m the Hound!” And he looks and says “…Hello, Hound! You enjoy Iceland?” I said a few things in Icelandic, and he’s like “Fuck yeah! Well, you have a good time!” And we went on singing.

- I interviewed Rory McCann, aka The Hound from Game of Thrones, for Rolling Stone, and it was my favorite interview ever.

Winter's Coming

Winter's Coming Robert Simpson is a Muppet who was introduced by Jim Henson in 1986. Robert requires two internal operators to maneuver the legs, lower body, and facial expressions, while two external operators in black suits operate the arms and upper body while guiding Robert around. Formerly voiced by Frank Oz, all four operators now speak in perfect unison. In the summer of 2013, he decided to start working on what he's good at and here we are. He was first featured as a cameo character in works by Ninjaink before breaking off on his own spin-off series in 2013.

'Batman Vs. Superman' Adds Holly Hunter, Callan Mulvey & More


I don't understand how or why Callan Mulvey is getting so much work in Hollywood!

Holly Hunter, Callan Mulvey (“300: Rise of an Empire,” “Captain America: The Winter Soldier”) and Tao Okamoto (“The Wolverine”) have joined the cast of the upcoming Zack Snyder untitled Superman/Batman film starring Henry Cavill and Ben Affleck.

All three actors will play characters newly created for the film.

Pic also stars Jesse Eisenberg, Jeremy Irons, Amy Adams, Laurence Fishburne and Diane Lane, in addition to Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman/Diana Prince.

Production is currently underway in Michigan.

The screenplay will be written by David S. Goyer, from a story co-created by Goyer and Snyder. Charles Roven and Deborah Snyder are producing, with Benjamin Melniker, Michael E. Uslan and Wesley Coller serving as executive producers.

Pic will bow on May 6, 2016.

The Top 40 'Game of Thrones' Characters, Ranked | Rolling Stone


Boooo this list.

The Top 40 'Game of Thrones' Characters, Ranked | Rolling Stone:

I did the kind of thing I basically NEVER do and ranked the top 40 characters on Game of Thrones from worst to best. Even if you’re not a list person — which in this case you should be, because these rankings are objectively correct — it’s still me writing 3,000 words on 40 major characters, if you’re into that sort of thing.

The Business Of Building Roller Coasters


"In 2010, Julijonas Urbonas, a student at the Royal College of Art in London, conceived the Euthanasia Coaster, a steel coaster designed to “take lives with elegance and euphoria.” The concept calls for a 500-meter descent at 220 miles-per-hour which leads straight into seven consecutive loops (clothoid inversions). Hypothetically, the coaster’s passengers would die of cerebral hypoxia (lack of oxygen to the brain) after the first or second loop."

Snickers' anti-misogyny advert actually kind of misogynistic



Oh, what's this? Snickers Australia has got a load of builders to shout empowering comments rather than cat calls at passers-by? That sounds a refreshing change for the brand, albeit a fairly obvious attempt
This probably would have been the response to the latest advert for the chocolate bar, had they not turned it on its head in the last five seconds.

The video sees the workers shouting things like "You wanna hear a filthy word? Gender bias," and "I'd like to show you...the respect you deserve" to women passing on the street below, subverting the stereotype of construction workers' leering behaviour.

"You know what I'd like to see? A society in which the objectification of women makes way for gender neutral introductions, free from assumptions and expectations," another adds, to the surprise and delight of the woman it is directed at.

The advert concludes with the slogan 'You're not you when you're hungry' however, suggesting that their actions have been those of someone driven crazy by hunger, and leaving a sour (and faintly peanuty) taste in the mouth of the viewer.

Let's hope those builders get a Snickers in them soon so they can return to their usual lecherous antics, eh? Maybe a Yorkie before they start treating everyone like equals!

The ad is pretty cringey even without the last 5 seconds. Trust Australia ofc.

Amy Acker cast as Coulson's cellist girlfriend on SHIELD



Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Whedonverse alum Amy Acker has landed a pivotal role on Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., has learned exclusively.

Acker will appear in at least one episode of the ABC series as Audrey, the famous cellist first mentioned in Marvel's The Avengers as being the love of Phil Coulson's (Clark Gregg) life. A talented musician turning heads in Portland, Audrey believes Coulson to be dead and has no idea that he's guarding her from a distance as a super-powered threat from her past re-emerges.

The cellist, who had remained nameless until now, was mentioned earlier this season when Raina (Ruth Negga) goaded Coulson by saying his former long-distance lover had cried for days after his death.

Acker will appear in an episode slated to air Tuesday, April 22.

All this time you wait... and you get this!? I know.

It's my firm belief that if we knew how sexy science really was, we wouldn't have dropped out of school like we did. Joke's on us right? I can't even read.

I'm illustrating a kids book right now and it's silly and fun.

'Fast & Furious 7' Will Shoot Scenes with Doubles and Use CGI


Fast 7, starring Beowulf O'Conner.

Shooting has now resumed for “Fast & Furious 7,” and Confidenti@l has learned exactly how Paul Walker will remain in the film.

“They have hired four actors with bodies very similar to Paul’s physique and they will be used for movement and as a base,” one source close to production tells us. “Paul’s face and voice will be used on top using CGI.”

Our insider adds that this is option number one producers and Universal Pictures have decided on, and that the studio feels confident fans of the franchise will feel satisfied with the result. Walker plays cop Brian O’Conner in every film in the series except for the third installment, “The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift.” Universal had confirmed in December that Walker would appear in the latest installment, but never addressed exactly how they would pull it off.

“Continuing the global exploits in the franchise built on speed, Vin Diesel and Paul Walker lead the returning cast of ‘Fast & Furious 7,’ which will be released by Universal Pictures on April 10, 2015,” the studio had said in a statement. “James Wan directs this chapter of the hugely successful series, and Neal H. Moritz and Vin Diesel return as producers.”

The cast and crew have been shooting scenes along the streets of downtown Atlanta, while Diesel took to his Facebook to post a picture of the last scene he filmed with Walker, writing, “There was a unique sense of completion, of pride we shared … in the film we were now completing … the magic captured … and, in just how far we’ve come … ‘Fast and Furious 7’ will be released … April 10th 2015! P.S. He’d want you to know first.”
