Two shows with ravenous fan bases are about to collide. ActorAdewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, whom you may remember as Mr. Eko on ABC's Lost, is joining the cast of HBO's Game of Thrones, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
A Lannister always pays their debts, but now it's the Game of Thrones producers who are shelling out the big bucks.
According to TMZ, the HBO drama paid up to $50,000 per day to film a scene featuring Lena Headey (Cersei Lannister) walking from a church through town completely nude. That adds up to a potential $200,000! The bill for the four-day shoot was so high because the series had to hire extra crew as well as pay local shop owners in Croatia to shut down their businesses during filming.

All men must die, but apparently that doesn't mean they're gone from Game of Thrones.
Sean Bean is tackling multiple roles this summer as an undercover agent on TNT's Legends. There's struggling dad Martin Odum, socially awkward pseudo-anarchist Lincoln Dittmann, and womanizing Dante Auerbach, to name a few. (But all Bean fans are concerned about at this point is that all of these characters stay alive.)

Seth Meyers continued his breakout year Monday night as the host of television's biggest night, the 66th Primetime Emmy Awards.
Hosting a major awards show is ostensibly an honor, but increasingly, in the world of live-tweeting, a thankless assignment — and one that was made even more tedious by the fact that this year's Emmy telecast occurred on a Monday. Did Meyers rise to the occasion?

The new deals for The Big Bang Theory's Jim Parsons, Johnny Galecki, and Kaley Cuoco, which pay each $1 million per episode, make them the top-earning actors in TV Guide Magazine's annual survey of stars' salaries. But will the trio be the last to...
George R.R. Martin
It turns out George R.R. Martin and the Game of Thrones showrunners aren't the only ones who know how A Song of Ice and Fire will end. Apparently, some exceptionally perceptive fans do too.
While speaking at the Edinburgh International Literary Festival, Martin noted that some readers have correctly puzzled out the ending to the saga, which consists of two more books, The Winds of Winter and A Dream of Spring.
Sean Bean takes the term workaholic to a new level on TNT's Legends.
The latest action series from Howard Gordon (Homeland, 24) follows Martin Odum (Bean), an agent in the FBI's Deep Cover Operations division who becomes so enmeshed in the personas ("legends") he adopts that the lines between his real and fictional identities start to become blurred.
"This guy ... has a kind of personality disorder, to put it mildly," Bean tells TVGuide.com. "He's a very driven man who creates characters and people from his past experiences.
