THE CAST of Game Of Thrones

THE CAST of Game Of Thrones  

Article by Tianya


Recently I was lucky enough to have a play for around an hour on EA’s upcoming fantasy RPG Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning. It was fun.It looks like a really great game, drawing on elements from a lot of other games to create something new and exciting. It felt a lot like Oblivion in some ways, but with a way better combat system and boss battles that more resembled God of Wartype action.A rakish ne’er-do-well who rises through the ranks of the redcoat army, Bean’s Sharpe did all the things classic imperial heroes do: he outwitted dastardly natives in the colonies, unmanned Napoleon’s French dragoons and charmed fiery-eyed Iberian vixens eager for some Anglo-Saxon liberation. The other thing Bean’s Sharpe did was never die.Last weekend Collider hit the red carpet at the Scream Awards. The event was held in a massive outdoor theater on the Universal back lot, right around the corner from the Bates Motel and just in front of the giant blue screen they used for the end of The Truman Show. If you’ve taken the studio tour, you probably know the place.Season one is screening now and it’s not to be missed. First seasons are special, remember True Blood? Still watchable – but series one was the reserve vintage claret that never tasted so good again.You can ponder the genetic ties in an odd new film called Anonymous. Directed by (of all people) Roland Emmerich, creator of Independence Day and 2012, the attractive-looking, nicely acted drama ponders questions concerning a progenitor of the Redgrave family business. Did one modestly educated man from Stratford-upon-Avon truly write all of Shakespeare’s plays? The film thinks not. If Emmerich and his writers are to be believed, Edward de Vere, the 17th earl of Oxford, a nobleman suspected of romancing Queen Elizabeth I, was the real talent behind the greatest oeuvre in the English language.Not so, it seems, for the rest of Bean’s oeuvre. As we all know, he’s the fallible warrior who gets shot up with arrows by a top-knotted super orc in the first installment of the Lord of the Rings trilogy. And, as the stoic Ned Stark, he dramatically loses his head toward the end of the first season of HBO’s Game of Thrones. (A turn of events that sparked Internet reactions like this one, though this guy could have done himself a favor — and spared us — by taking a peak at the book.)Just before Reubens came up, his publicist said that I would only get two questions because he was already supposed to be off the carpet. Then, she gave me more than two questions. I was totally baffled the whole time because Reubens was dressed as Pee-Wee, talking like Pee-Wee, but doing the interview as himself. The man comes from improv, so when he saw my hesitation he threw me around like a rag doll, reducing me to a stuttering mess incapable of asking a coherent question. I think it’s pretty funny.Speaking of first seasons, Soho is also running Sopranos from the beginning.
