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.

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.

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.

Someone hasn't done his homework.
Game of Thrones star Peter Dinklage, who plays fan favorite Tyrion Lannister, visited The Late Show Wednesday, and confessed a shameful secret to David Letterman: He hasn't read the books the HBO series is based on.

In 2013, Tyrion Lannister made $49 million dollars, which really p---ed him off, because it was just a few short of a million a week.
This amazing mash-up of Game of Thrones and The Wolf of Wall Street will make the day of any fan of Peter Dinklage, Martin Scorsese's film or clever editing in general.
