Ever since the Season 5 finale of Game of Thrones, there has been a burning question on many fans' minds: is Jon Snow (Kit Harington) really dead? The producers have claimed that he is in fact dead, but, with a few characters on the show possessing the powers of resurrection, like Carice van Houten's Melissandre, many are wondering how long the beloved Jon Snow may actually be dead for. Today we have a new report from Watchers On the Wall, which claims that their "spies" in Northern Ireland have spotted Kit Harington on the set, "participating" in the filming.
You may recall that, back in July, Kit Harington was spotted arriving in Belfast, Ireland, one of several locations that Game of Thrones films in. While it isn't known what the actor's "participation" was on the set, it seems to be yet another indication that Jon Snow will be brought back to life. The character was killed off in George R.R. Martin's fifth book, A Dance With Dragons, but the author has hinted in the past that Jon Snow isn't actually dead. We don't know for sure, though, since he still hasn't published his long-awaited sixth book, The Winds of Winter. Barring a publishing miracle, Game of Thrones Season 6 will be the first season to debut before the latest book has arrived.Read More
Game of Thrones normally uses its Comic-Con panel every summer to announce the new casting additions for each season, but that tradition was broken this year. The show still hasn't made any official casting announcements to date, but news has started to trickle out from unconventional sources. Today, we have a report from Watchers on the Wall, which reveal that veteran British actor Richard E. Grant has signed on for an unspecified role in Season 6. It isn't known if he has started filming or not.
The news of his casting was spotted on the actor's official resume page on his talent agency's website, but the listing was removed shortly thereafter. There are still a number of roles that have yet to be cast, such as Randyll Tarly, the father of Samwell Tarly, Aeron Greyjoy, Lord Karstark and Smalljon Umber, so it's possible that Richard E. Grant could be playing any one of those roles. It's also possible that he could be playing a character created specifically for this new season of Game of Thrones.Read More
Our first look at the crime comedy Dom Hemingway comes courtesy of an international trailer. Debuting in the U.K. later this year, director Richard Shepard brings his latest to America on April 4. Starring Jude Law, Richard E. Grant, Demián Bichir and Emilia Clarke, the movie follows a safecracker who has recently finished a twelve year stint and jail, and decided to return to his old ways. We have the first footage, along with a ton of new pictures.
Jude Law plays Dom Hemingway, a larger-than-life safecracker with a loose fuse who is funny, profane, and dangerous. After twelve years in prison, he sets off with his partner in crime Dickie (Richard E. Grant) looking to collect what he's owed for keeping his mouth shut and protecting his boss Mr. Fontaine (Demián Bichir). After a near death experience, Dom tries to re-connect with his estranged daughter (Emilia Clarke), but is soon drawn back into the only world he knows, looking to settle the ultimate debt.Read More
