Peter Dinklage Previews Tyrion as Hand of the King, Game of Thones Season 2

Peter Dinklage is well aware that people adore the Game of Thrones book series. But the actor who fans adore as Tyrion says he has only bases his performances off the scripts by David Benioff and Dan Weiss. They "are brilliant writers and that character just popped off the page," he told EW today at Comic-Con . "It was very alive and a character that could have a lot of fun and circumvent the more honorable characters. I’m always attracted to anti-hero roles."

'Game of Thrones': Liam Cunningham cast as Davos

And that's a wrap for all of "Game of Thrones" major new roles for Season 2.EW is reporting that Irish actor Liam Cunningham will play fan favorite Ser Davos Seaworth when the HBO hit series returns for its second season in 2012. Cunningham recently starred in Starz's now-canceled "Camelot," the "Clash of the Titans" remake and "The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor."Nicknamed "The Onion Knight," Davos is a family man who Stannis Baratheon enlists to help him seize the Iron Throne from King Joffrey (Jack Gleeson) after his brother Robert Baratheon's (Mark Addy) death. Davos earned his nickname after successfully getting food into Stannis' castle during the War of the Usurper. Though he lost four fingers due to his criminal past, Stannis gave Davos a knighthood for his actions. Earlier today it was announced that British actor Stephen Dillane will take on the role of Stannis while Dutch actress Carice van Houten will play... http://blog.zap2it.com/frominsidethebox/2011/07/game-of-thrones-liam-cunningham-cast-as-davos.html

'Game of Thrones' Queen Lena Headley Reigns Over 'White Collar' (Photos)

Lena Headley so perfectly portrays the icy and incestuous Queen Cersei on HBO's "Game of Thrones" that it's a bit strange to see her in mere peasant clothes. But there she is, rocking a tank top, on Tuesday's episode of the USA Network series "White Collar." Cersei Lannister would so not approve. http://www.thewrap.com/column-post/game-thrones-queen-cersei-lena-headley-reigns-over-white-collar

'Game of Thrones' Casts Key Season 2 Roles of Stannis and Melisandre

EW has broken news that 'Game of Thrones' fans have been anxiously waiting for. We finally know who will play Stannis Baratheon, one of the contenders for the Iron Throne, and the show has also cast the role of the powerful priestess Melisandre. Though I'd personally been hoping that Gina Torres would be cast as the sorceress Melisandre, who acts as an advisor to Stannis, the role went to Dutch actress Carice van Houten. EW says her credits include 'Repo Men' and 'Valkyrie.' British actor Stephen Dillane, who played Thomas Jefferson in HBO's 'John Adams' and Leonard Woolf in 'The Hours,' among other roles, will play Stannis, who was frequently spoken about near the end of the show's first season. http://www.aoltv.com/2011/07/19/game-of-thrones-casts-key-season-2-roles-of-stannis-and-melisa/

‘Game of Thrones’ Author George R.R. Martin Spills the Secrets of ‘A Dance with Dragons’

Fantasy writer George R.R. Martin first began to dream of dragons when he was a child in Bayonne, N.J. Mr. Martin, 62 years old, says that he grew up in a federal housing project in Bayonne, which is situated on a peninsula. Because his blue collar family was too poor to travel, "My world was five blocks long," he says. He would look out the windows of the housing project, stare at the ships in the water, and imagine the places to which they might be journeying, and the stories in which they might become entangled. "My hunger for a bigger world and for travel and experience turned in imaginative directions because there was no reality there," Mr. Martin says. On July 12, Bantam will publish "A Dance with Dragons," the fifth volume in Mr. Martin’s bestselling fantasy series "A Song of Ice and Fire."  Mr. Martin’s previous book in the series, "A Feast for Crows," came out in 2005, and so fans have been hungrily waiting for a new book; the HBO series "Game of Thrones," which is based on the Martin saga, has also helped to build interest in his work. In advance of publication, "A Dance with Dragons" went to No.1 on the Amazon bestseller list.
