Max Von Sydow Game of Thrones

Game Of Thrones is lobbing out the casting news recently. On the heels of the announcement that Ian McShane has joined the cast for season 6 (in an unnamed role), comes the announcement that legendary actor, Max Von Sydow will play the Three-Eyed Raven next season, replacing Struan Rodger, who made a brief appearance in the season 4 finale, as the seer who cannot help Bran walk again, but “he will fly.”

Hodor and Bran Stark Will Return For ‘Game Of Thrones’ Season 6

Kristian Nairn and Isaac Hempstead Wright as Hodor and Bran in Game of Thrones

Last September we found out that Hodor (Kristian Nairn) and Bran Stark (Isaac Hempstead Wright), along with Meera Reed (Ellie Kendrick), were taking season five of Game of Thrones off, because their storyline was all caught up with the books. And as we found out, this was very true. Nairn used his time off to do his “Rave of Thrones” tour.

It seemed pretty unlikely that these important characters would be taking off a second consecutive season, but if you were worried whether you would have to go another year without some Hodor on your TV screens or not, fear not, for it has been confirmed that they will be returning for season six…which has already been greenlit and is very likely to be the penultimate season of the show.

Hempstead Wright confirmed his return in an interview recently (which we assume means the return of Hodor and Meera as well), and also talked about what Marvel role he’d love to play. You can see what he had to say below, though be warned, potential spoilers lurk below. Only proceed if caught up with the show or if you don’t mind a spoiler or two here and there.

Another year has come and gone, and a new season of Game of Thrones is on the horizon—season five, to be specific, which will premiere on April 12th.

As always, HBO has released the previous season, season four, on Blu-ray and DVD just in time to help get us through these undeniably difficult final couple of months of waiting for the new season to arrive. Once again we offer our review without any spoilers—in case you’ve not yet started or finished the latest season—and focus mainly on what fans of the show who are caught up want to know, which is what special features are included on the discs. If you’ve never seen the show at all, why on earth are you reading a review of season four instead of watching season one, episode one? Go now!

Kristian Nairn and Isaac Hempstead-Wright as Hodor and Bran in Game of Thrones

Back in September, actor Kristian Nairn revealed that his Game Of Thrones character Hodor, the gentle giant who only speaks his own name, won’t appear in Season 5 of the HBO series. Aside from filming the show, the actor is also a DJ who has been on a sold-out world tour called Rave of Thrones.

But what will Nairn do once the tour ends? TV and radio host Jamie Stangroom recently sat down with the actor to discuss his options for work and to, of course, get him to say “Hodor.”

Watch the 5-minute video here below, which includes Nairn auditioning for a commercial for the Pretty Good Fried Chicken hair salon (yes, a fried chicken place that also does hair cuts.

Here’s What Hodor From ‘Game Of Thrones’ and DJ Kristian Nairn’s “Rave Of Thrones” Intro Looks Like

Kristian Nairn's "Rave of Thrones"

A fun little fact some of you fans of Game of Thrones might not know, is that the actor who plays the gentle giant Hodor, Kristian Nairn, is also a DJ.

Nairn has the upcoming season of Thrones off due to his storyline being further along than other characters, so he’s instead focused on an international DJ tour called “Rave of Thrones.”

The “Rave of Thrones” shows have been selling out all over, unsurprisingly. Thankfully, if you’re not able to make it to one, you can now get an idea of what it’s like. A video has been uploaded of how the event kicks off, which involves a little pre-show LARPing, some epic music, and perhaps a certain iron throne. You can check it out below.

Click on over to the other side to read a quote from Nairn revealing the news, but be warned it could be considered semi-spoilery if you’re highly fearful of such things.

Oculus Rift Game of Thrones Exhibit SXSW

If you’ve not yet heard of the Oculus Rift, you will soon enough. Basically, it’s the virtual reality system we’ve all been waiting for for so very long now. A quick search over at YouTube will deliver to you hours of entertainment as people try various video games and other things out using the device.

In addition to a new type of video game experience, demos have been created to show off what the Oculus can do. The most popular of which lets you watch a movie in a virtual theater, but there are plenty others such as a wingsuit flight or a lunar flight simulator.

Recently at SXSW three cast members from HBO’s Game of Thrones got to try out another Oculus demo, one that lets you ride the winch elevator at Castle Black to the top of The Wall. Continue below to see a pair of videos of the experience, as well as a brief chat with the actors.

It’s cold and dark and depressing outside as many of us fight through the dead of winter, but excitement is starting to build in the land of television as Game of Thrones begins to take over once again. It started with the first trailers and behind-the-scenes special for season four. It continues with the release of season three on Blu-ray today. And officially hits its full stride on April 6th with the start of the new season, as the show looks to continue its dominance over others as the best on TV today. The warmth of the sun is not far off now. For us anyway; we know what’s coming for Westeros.

With one of the most shocking sequences of events in TV history setting the internet ablaze with reactions, memes aplenty, and much discussion, season three continued to set the bar extremely high and continued bringing new fans to the series with no signs of slowing down in sight.

Kristian Nairn as Hodor on Game of Thrones

Remember last year when we showed you the progress of a group of friends who were building a full-scale replica of the Millennium Falcon from Star Wars? At the time it was mostly smaller pieces of various sections of the ship, with a good amount of the cockpit completed.

Fast forward to now and Chris Lee, Greg Dietrich, and friends are still far from completing the full Falcon. But much work has been done on the aforementioned cockpit—so much so that they were able to bring it to the Geek Media Expo in Nashville to show off. While there (and unbeknownst to them), Hodor (Kristian Nairn) and Irri (Amrita Acharia) from HBO’s Game of Thrones stopped by and took a picture inside the Millennium Falcon. You can see the image below!

SDCC 2012: HBOs Game of Thrones panel

HBO’s Game of Thrones is undoubtedly one of the most successful series in cable history, so it’s no surprise there was a rabid turnout for their SDCC Comic-Con panel on Friday. The panel began with none other than author George RR Martin as moderator.

Martin mentioned that producers David Benioff and Daniel B. Weiss regretted that they’d be unable to make the panel as they’re currently on-set directing the current season. Martin also joked about the unavailability of the 13 year old co-producer in charge of boobies (a reference to a recent SNL Digital Short).
