Apparently, he gets asked way too many genitalia-related questions.”I get penis questions every single interview I do,” he told the publication.Playing a eunuch, it seems, makes people want to talk about sex organs. And to an extent, we get it.

The actor recently chatted with the U.K.’s Daily Mail and revealed that his role comes with at least one drawback. That said, there are other definitely other fascinating topics he is well qualified to weigh in on, like the Unsullied army’s push into Westeros.For Anderson’s sake, we hope his character has some exciting storylines in the coming season so that he can focus on more than just Grey Worm’s genitals — or lack thereof.”Game of Thrones” Season 7 premieres July 16 on HBO.[via: Daily Mail]

He lives in San Francisco, California. Bob Marley and the Wailers: The Ultimate Illustrated History documents Marley’s and the Wailers’ role in spreading reggae music around the globe. Their evolution from an early-60s Jamaican ska group to international superstars was not just improbable, but unprecedented for an act from a third-world nation. With over 75 million albums sold worldwide, an appeal that spans generations, and still influencing artists today, their legacy is something most other acts only dream of. Unterberger is also the author of The Rough Guide to Music USA, a guidebook to the evolution of regional popular music styles throughout America in the 20th century, and The Rough Guide to Jimi Hendrix. Author Richie Unterberger examines all aspects of their career, from the early days, their recorded output, as well as the roles and careers of other Wailers, most notably Peter Tosh and Bunny Wailer. The resulting package is authoritative but also beautifully designed and illustrated, featuring 300 images of rare memorabilia, as well as fantastic performance and candid off-stage photography. Additionally, Unterberger delves into the influence of the Rastafari movement on the musicians’ lives and music, and on controversial incidents like the breakup of the original Wailers in the mid-1970s; the attempted assassination of Marley in 1976; and his premature death in 1981. He is a frequent contributor to MOJO and Record Collector, and has written hundreds of liner notes for CD reissues. BOB MARLEY AND THE WAILERS: The Ultimate Illustrated History

The new book, BOB MARLEY AND THE WAILERS: The Ultimate Illustrated History (Voyageur Press, September 1, 2017 / US $35) documents the Jamaican legends’ crucial role in establishing reggae’s global popularity and  enduring influence with socially conscious lyrics that made Marley a global symbol of pride and justice.

In “Game of Thrones” Season 7, the tension between Sansa Stark and Jon Snow will go past “sibling squabbling,” Kit Harington reports, and go fully into a power struggle.(And, of course, Littlefinger will be right there whispering anti-Jon stuff right in Sansa’s ear. As Harington told TIME in its recent cover story, “this year there is this huge seismic shift where all of what he’s learned over the years, suddenly … All she wants is the respect of her brother, and she feels like she’s not getting that. Considering he knows the truth about the White Walkers, it’s no surprise he’d be speaking up more to try and save the Seven Kingdoms. Whether that means going a bit dark… Like us on Facebook. It gets past sibling squabbling, it gets into two people power struggling.”Jon Snow still knows nothing when it comes to listening to others.Sophie Turner has been echoing the same power struggle talk in her own interviews, recently telling Express of Sansa, “She definitely feels left out. Harington picked things up from there, telling Entertainment Weekly what happens next:”There is definite tension between them right from the first scene. You have to imagine that will lead to Jon grabbing Petyr by the throat, as shown in the Season 7 trailer.)Season 6 ended with Jon being declared the King in the North as Sansa watched with resentment. But as far as where that goes or takes them or how dark it can get, we’ll see. Posted July 6, 2017 by Gina CarboneStark Wars is coming to a screen near you on July 16. you’ll have to see.”Harington also teased some positive things for Jon, including more maturity and confidence and certainty of his position. They also teased that “Dany’s journey to Dragonstone won’t be easy given that Euron is out there looking for her, and you can expect at least one major character meet-up in the first hour.”Let the Games begin!Want more stuff like this? She’s very strong and steely this season. There’s a little bit of jealousy there. She’s in it for herself. He’s still the same Jon, but he grows up.”The “Game of Thrones” Season 7 premiere airs Sunday, July 16, and EW previously noted that most of the photos that HBO released are from the first episode.

Like us on Facebook. I look at what happened and I think, That wasn’t any more gory than what we’ve done before, per se. Glenn was a main character right from his voice piping through to Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln) at the end of the pilot, but despite that, Yeun pointed out that Glenn was rarely given solo time (he and Maggie were basically joined at the storyline hip), and Glenn didn’t get his own magazine cover until after he was killed. I don’t say this as a knock on anything. I’m thankful to EW for that wonderful cover they ran at the end, but we’ve had many covers before then that he never got to do on his own. I loved being on that show. People got their guts smashed out and their heads caved in. Not until the last year did they give him his own cover, and then give him the one as he died.”FYI, here’s that cover:And here’s a bit more from Yeun to Vulture on Glenn:”I didn’t think of it as racism, where it’s like, Oh, this is racist. They liked him, they had no problems with him, and people enjoyed him. (Unlike, say, Daryl Dixon.) If Glenn really was so many fans’s “favorite character,” why didn’t he get more leading character promotion?Vulture started this part of the conversation by noting there was “some pretty severe blowback to your character Glenn’s death that has lingered.” The reporter then asked, “Do you feel like it was too much?”Yeun’s answer revealed how much thought he’d given his character, and Glenn’s public perception:”I don’t feel like it was too much. The first big trailer should be coming later this month at San Diego Comic-Con.Want more stuff like this? He always had to be part of something else to legitimize himself. No one got their face ripped in half! But they didn’t acknowledge the connection people had with the character until he was gone. I caught it in a way of ‘Oh, this is how we’re viewed all the time – as part of some glob, some amorphous, non-individualistic collective.’ We’re like a Borg, and so because of that, they’re like, ‘Well, we don’t need to give the shine to that character. I’ll be honest with you and put a full disclaimer here: I might not be objective, but I truly feel like people didn’t know what to do with Glenn. That really might be the market, so I’m not going to sit here and be like, ‘Why didn’t they make Glenn merchandise?’ But there was a disparity….”Read the full Q&A for a lot more from Yeun on TWD, “Okja,” the roles he’s turned down, the ones he’d prefer, and how he still struggles even after success as an Asian-American actor.”The Walking Dead” Season 8 premieres October on AMC. Posted July 6, 2017 by Gina CarboneSteven Yeun doesn’t think people knew what to do with Glenn Rhee, or fully appreciated their connection to “The Walking Dead” character until he was gone.In a new talk with Vulture, to promote Netflix’s “Okja” and discuss what he wants to do next, Yeun discussed his most famous role, as TWD’s pizza boy turned badass father-to-be. There’s all these other characters who are so cool!’ I’d always hear people go, ‘I love Glenn, he’s my favorite character.’ But the merchandise would go one way. I never felt like he got it from an outward perception. He was rarely alone. But this one felt gratuitous because one, it kept going, and two, I think they took away someone that I didn’t realize I had made such a connection with until they took him away. And when he was alone, it took several years to convince people to be on his own. Externally, it was tough sometimes because I never felt like he got his fair due. Internally, it was incredible.

I wrote a draft of your apology – you can still turn this around. His answer got a strong reaction — and probably not the kind that he wanted.During a panel discussion, an audience member said they read an interview in Gay Times magazine saying Garfield had been locked into this process for a year. He was being lighthearted, but humor does not always translate well — especially on a serious, sensitive topic — and to many he came off as insensitive and ignorant.

(The play is) As much devoted to my friends in the gay community as it is those that passed during the epidemic.”Later in the talk, Gay Times reported, Garfield revealed that he watched “every single series” of “RuPaul’s Drag Race” and that also helped him find his character.”My only time off during rehearsals – every Sunday I would have eight friends over and we would just watch Ru. I’m #gay and have no #problem with what he said.

Like us on Facebook. These two will be missed and I may just opt out of watching this show, walking away in principle just like they did. We did not want to lose them and tried very hard to keep them with offers for large and significant salary increases. CBS just likes white guys.• deb: cbs should be ashamed, and no one can take the place of these two actors, everything in the world today is about money, and thats so sad, these two actors are a major part of this show, heck Caan isn’t even in half of them and franklly when he isn’t there, I don’t miss him at all. I could see at the beginning when the emphasis was on Steve and Danny, but over the last few seasons, they are all important characters.”Well, Variety shared some numbers in their behind-the-scenes report:”Industry sources said O’Loughlin and Caan are making about $200,000 per episode apiece for the upcoming eighth season of the show, produced by CBS Television Studios. it is truly YOUR loss.• Cbshater: A show in Hawaii without any major Asian actors. The final offer for Park was lower than that for Kim, according to a source.”Variety’s commenters weren’t happy either:• Andy Martin: Same old same old, they treated Cote de Pablo of NCIS the same way. Park, meanwhile, was said to have sought a deal for less than half of a full season’s worth of episodes, which would have been a financially challenging prospect for the network at the salary that she sought. If Friends managed to pay each of their stars the same amount all those years ago, then I don’t see why it’s so hard to do the same now.I will certainly miss them, because Kono and Kelly were two of my favourite characters. That’s just ironic.. However, sources close to Kim said the differential was more significant.The dispute on the difference in compensation levels may hinge on the fact that O’Loughlin and Caan have a small share of the backend profits of the show. shame on you CBS.. Lame…”Hawaii Five-0″ Season 8 premieres Friday, September 29 at 9 p.m. On July 5, Kim shared a Facebook post with his reasons for saying goodbye, including the telling line, “The path to equality is rarely easy.”It had been reported that the two stars were seeking pay equity to O’Loughlin and Caan, and that seems to have been confirmed by Kim and also CBS, in the network’s own response, posted later on July 5:”Daniel and Grace have been important and valued members of Hawaii Five-0 for seven seasons. Because that’s the question fans were left with, scratching their heads in the comments.As fan Sandra Lee wrote (via EW):”I’m scared to even know what they were originally paid if they declined their ‘significant’ raise.And I honestly don’t understand why it’s so difficult to pay an ensemble cast the same. but we’re talking about cbs so it’s no surprise. A source close to the situation said CBS’ last per-episode salary offer to Kim was about $5,000 apart from the two lead actors, and CBS offered to set a new overall deal with Kim’s 3AD production banner. But that doesn’t mean “equal pay,” and the network’s new statement — in response to fan disappointment and a separate post from Kim — just left fans wondering how little the two original stars must’ve been paid that “significant” raises still wouldn’t have put them equal to Alex O’Loughlin and Scott Caan as they entered their eighth season as a team.The initial news that Park and Kim would be leaving came out on June 30. While we could not reach an agreement, we part ways with tremendous respect for their talents on screen, as well as their roles as ambassadors for the show off screen, and with hopes to work with them again in the near future.”How much are they paying O’Loughlin and Caan that they still couldn’t find equal ground for Kim and Park? ‘Hawaii Five-0’ delivered some 25 episodes in its most recent season.Sources close to the situation noted that Kim and Park did not negotiate as a unit in their discussions with CBS. ET on CBS.Want more stuff like this? Posted July 6, 2017 by Gina CarboneCBS claims it offered Daniel Dae Kim and Grace Park “large and significant salary increases” to stay on “Hawaii Five-0” after seven seasons. ‘Hawaii Five-0’ commanded a lucrative $2 million-per-episode cable syndication deal with TNT in 2011, although the show turned out to be a lackluster performer for the cabler. It remains a successful property for CBS in international markets — all of which means O’Loughlin and Caan’s profit participation stakes probably plump up their take-home pay considerably.

Meanwhile, Dennis is set to play Tilda Johnson, a brainy holistic doctor who has a complex relationship with Harlem and a penchant for attracting trouble. “From the moment you see each of them on screen, I feel they will be powerful additions to the world of Marvel and Harlem’s Luke Cage.”The two add to a cast that already includes Mike Colter, Simone Missick, Rosario Dawson, Alfre Woodard, and Theo Rossi.”Luke Cage” Season 2 is coming to Netflix in 2018.[via: Marvel] We don’t know the specifics of how they’ll tie into Luke’s crime-fighting yet, but we do know it’s going to be interesting.”I can’t wait for audiences to see the compelling paces we put both Mustafa and Gabrielle through,” said showrunner and executive producer Cheo Hodari Coker in a statement.



While assisting Headey with breast-feeding, a nurse couldn’t resist a reference to Cersei Lannister’s walk of shame.As Headey describes it, the woman was “milking [her] like a human cow” when she started chanting, “Shame!” It was a moment that skirted the line between humorous and cringe-worthy.”I was flying on morphine, so it was sort of funny,” she said. During a recent interview, she recounted an incident that occurred when she was in the hospital, having just given birth to her daughter. Posted July 5, 2017 by Stephanie Topacio LongApparently, for some “Game of Thrones” fans, there’s no moment too private for a little show-related humor.Lena Headey revealed a truly bizarre fan encounter to The New York Times. And no, that’s not a challenge, people.We’ll see more of Headey in “Game of Thrones” when Season 7 premieres July 16 on HBO.[via: The New York Times] “Had I been vaguely in the world, I might have been more offended.”The nurse wasn’t the first to do her best impression of Septa Unella (Hannah Waddingham) — and she probably won’t be the last — but we find it hard to believe any other fan will be able to find a more inappropriate moment.



Baby’s all grown up! Posted July 5, 2017 by Kelly WooBaby number two? He told Empire’s podcast that Sony has approached him about a follow-up, and though Wright has never made a sequel to any of his films (“Shaun of the Dead,” “Hot Fuzz”), he just may do it.”The studio have asked me to think about writing a sequel and it is one of the ones that I might do a sequel to because I think there’s somewhere more to go with it in terms of the characters,” Wright said.The movie has debuted to critical and commercial success, so naturally, Sony wants more. So, what could “Baby Driver 2: Electric Boogaloo” be about? Edgar Wright, the writer and director of “Baby Driver,” is considering penning a sequel to the film. Perhaps it would feature Baby (Ansel Elgort) climbing the criminal ladder.”I sort of have an idea that if you did another [film] you would subvert his involvement in the crime in a different way so he’s not the apprentice anymore,” Wright explained.



“This original 22-movie arc ends with the untitled ‘Avengers’ in May of 2019 and then two months later it will be Peter and ‘Spider-Man’ that usher us into the aftermath and how things proceed from there,” he said.It’s unclear, though, if Spider-Man will be part of Phase 4, though, since Sony and Marvel’s unusual deal to allow the character to be part of the MCU ends after “Homecoming’s” sequel. “We are looking at a five-movie storyline — ‘Civil War,’ ‘Homecoming,’ ‘Avengers: Infinity War,’ untitled ‘Avengers,’ ‘Homecoming 2’ — or whatever we end up calling it — as an amazing five-story journey for Peter Parker,” Marvel Studios boss Kevin Feige told the Toronto Sun.What happens in the upcoming movies will impact the story for the sequel to “Spider-Man: Homecoming.” “In the way that the events of ‘Civil War’ directly inform the opening of Homecoming and his state of mind as he goes back to high school, so too will the events of the next two ‘Avengers movies’ as he continues with high school,” Feige explained.And Spider-Man will be a pivotal character who helps usher in “Phase 4” of the MCU. Posted July 5, 2017 by Kelly WooPeter Parker’s journey is going to be a long one.It began in “Captain America: Civil War,” continues in “Spider-Man: Homecoming,” and will span across three more movies in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
