Yes, George R. R. Martin, we know that every man must die. But that doesn't make the deaths on Game of Thrones any less painful to watch. Fortunately, HBO just made sure that many of the fan favorites could stay around for a lot longer.

The principal stars of the hit HBO drama – who include Peter Dinklage (Tyrion Lannister), Nikolaj Coster-Waldau (Jaime Lannister), Lena Headey (Cersei Lannister) and Kit Harington (Jon Snow) – signed new contracts to keep them around for a potential seventh and final season (and give them massive raises), according to The Hollywood Reporter.

7 of Your Favorite TV Shows, Simpson-ized

The Simpsons enters its 26th season Sept. 28. Pause and try to absorb that information.

Good?

Okay. Now think about how recognizable and familiar the style of The Simpsons actually is: Can you think of another animated series from the past quarter-decade of American animation that's quite as iconic? Family Guy comes close, but it's still far off.

Which is what's so cool about this collection of art from DeviantArt user ADN-Z. It takes the familiar Simpsons aesthetic and applies it to other popular TV shows, like Breaking Bad and Game of Thrones. (ADN-Z runs the Draw The Simpsons Tumblr, so he's something of an expert.)

Walter, John Snow, and all the rest: Welcome to Springfield!

Jon Snow has a naughty side!

Kit Harington stepped on the Emmys red carpet in Armani, but sounds like he'd prefer to be in the buff.

You could say that Emilia Clarke's Daenerys Targaryen is the heart of Game of Thrones, and you might also say that Maisie Williams's Arya Stark is its soul. But no one would deny that Tyrion Lannister, memorably portrayed by Peter Dinklage, is the HBO fantasy series's brain.

Why Peter Dinklage Should Win the Emmy for Game of Thrones

Originally posted 08/22/2014 04:35PM

How do you stand out among the dozens of cast members on Game of Thrones (fully two-thirds of whom seem to be gruff, bearded men)? As Tyrion Lannister, the wise-cracking dwarf played by Peter Dinklage, proves, it helps to not take things too seriously.

While the HBO fantasy series' assorted lords and ladies backstab their way to courtly domination, Tyrion is one of the the few characters who sees the game of thrones as the cosmic joke that is it – even as he remains one of its best players.

Dinklage, 45, who's nominated for outstanding supporting actor in a drama series, is the audience stand-in, and his withering wit helps bring a show full of dragons and ice zombies down to a human level.
