Game of Thrones Meets Wolf of Wall Street in This Amazing Mash-Up

Originally posted 03/18/2014 08:25AM



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.

Peter Dinklage on Being a Sex Symbol: 'I Don't Believe It for a Minute'

Peter Dinklage may not be a typical Hollywood star. But he certainly faces the thrills and challenges of being a huge celebrity – as evidenced by his being mobbed by admirers.

"Game of Thrones fans are the nicest people ever, but a thousand nice people coming at me gives me claustrophobia," the actor, who plays Tyrion Lannister on HBO's hit fantasy series, tells Playboy in a new interview.

"I can't wear a pair of sunglasses and pull my hat down and just disappear. I'm 4½ feet tall, so I sort of stand out."

Game of Thrones: 5 Things We Love (Slash Are Obsessed With)

Originally posted 04/07/2013 04:20PM

HBO's Game of Thrones, now at the start of its third season, seems to have been weighted into a catapult and sent soaring through the air: What was already a massive hit has become a buzzed-about, addictive phenomenon.

The show is – as one says, of such epic productions – teeming with characters. It swarms with plots, subplots and side-plots. If you missed the first two seasons, you might be afraid to just jump in. Don't be.

Just remember that everyone's motive is essentially the same: Win the Iron Throne and control all the kingdoms. (Think of Jerry Seinfeld chasing down the marble rye, but there are hundred of Jerrys and only one loaf.)

Oh, and everyone wants to avoid being brutally slaughtered.

You'll be hooked fast enough, and you'll develop your own set of obsessions to anticipate each week. These are mine:

Winter is coming!

Game of Thrones stars Peter Dinklage and Richard Madden kicked off the Emmys with a work out in Beverly Hills on Sunday morning.

Hours before the big awards show, the pair, who play prominent members of dueling families on HBO's hit fantasy drama, were spotted at the fitness center at the Four Seasons Hotel in Beverly Hills.

Dinklage, who earned a nomination for his role as Tyrion Lannister, jogged on the treadmill as Madden, who plays King in the North Robb Stark lifted weights.

"Richard was really working up a sweat!" an onlooker tells PEOPLE.

While Dinklage didn't take home an award, Game of Thrones did win Emmys for outstanding sound editing for a series, outstanding sound mixing for a comedy or drama series, outstanding special visual effects, outstanding art direction for a single-camera series, outstanding costumes for a series and outstanding makeup (non-prosthetic) for a single-camera series.

Ice Age: Continental Drift Is Fine but Forgettable: Review

Parents, let's talk. I've noticed a lot of whimpering at kids' movies lately, and I think we all know it isn't the kids.

Hey, I get it. I'm childless, but like you, I see all their movies. The fact is that lately, animated films just aren't that great. The Lorax was a lecture, Brave was disappointing, and though Madagascar 3 hit some high points, you've probably developed a tic triggered by the words "afro" and "circus."

Ice Age: Continental Drift is more of the same – fine but forgettable.

The long summer is ending, winter is coming, and don't even think about spring. The second season of HBO's thrilling fantasy drama Game of Thrones has arrived.

Episode one, "The North Remembers," was a typically seat-of-your-pants, edge-of-your-seat tour of the geography of Westeros, from deserts to ice-bound forests, as we witnessed rival camps preparing to go to war for the Iron Throne.

Here are the developments (spoiler alert) that most intrigued me and will have me hooked for the whole season:

Game of Thrones Season 2 Trailer Released

Who is the rightful ruler of Westeros?

HBO has just released the first teaser trailer for Game of Thrones season 2, offering a tense taste of things to come. We see Lady Stark pointing a dagger at Littlefinger, Joffrey threatening to kill Sansa, and Tyrion – played by Emmy and Golden Globe winner Peter Dinklage – acknowledging how "the game is played."

"One of the great challenges of the second season is that the world just expanded enormously," David Benioff, executive producer and writer, said recently. "Not only do we introduce a great number of new characters, but we're journeying to all new locations."

The Game returns April 1 on HBO.

Peter Dinklage's Globes Speech: Who is Martin Henderson?

Originally posted 01/17/2012 09:15AM

Peter Dinklage gave a fairly standard acceptance after receiving the Golden Globe for Best Supporting TV Actor on Sunday. But it was his mention of "a gentleman in England I'm thinking about, Martin Henderson" that left people scratching their heads.

Instead of elaborating, the actor told the audience to "Google him" and within minutes Henderson's name was trending on Twitter.

Turns out, Henderson is a fellow dwarf and aspiring actor, who was badly injured after a stranger picked him up and threw him in England last October. He has not been able to walk properly since the incident.
