Even though we will most likely not see a single episode of ‘Game of Thrones‘ Season 8 until early 2019, that does not mean we will not be getting updates, news, theories, and rumors until the very moment the final season premieres. Case in point, after recent announcements of a good number of Season 8 roles that the show was looking to hire actors for, we now have our first role cast! According to the Watchers On the Wall website, actor Marc Rissmann has been cast as Harry Strickland for Season 8, a character that book fans will recognize as the leader of the mercenary company known as the Golden Army. The news comes from Rissman’s Spotlight CV and his agency, and while the spotlight entry has been recently taken down (most likely at the request of the ‘Game of Thrones’ folks), the Watchers on The Wall sight still managed to grab a screenshot which confirms the news. So who is Harry Strickland? For those who read the books or have been paying attention to Cersei’s storyline in Season 7, Harry Strickland leads the Golden Company, a mercenary group from Essos who have been around for quite some time, and […]

What a series of fortunate events! Neil Patrick Harris could be coming to a city near you! The Tony-winning actor is embarking on a four-city tour to promote his upcoming book, ‘The Magic Misfits.’ Harris will make stops in Los Angeles, New York, Seattle, and Woodridge, Illinois. At one special event, he’ll take part in a conversation with fellow author Lemony Snicket, who wrote ‘A Series of Unfortunate Events.’ Harris stars in the TV adaptation of Snicket’s series. ‘The Magic Misfits’ is the first in a new series written by Harris. The story is centered around Carter, a street magician who runs away to a New England town and teams up with a group of like-minded illusionists, discovering adventure and friendship while fending off greedy carnies who will steal anything in sight along the way. While Harris previously published a best-selling autobiography, this is his first venture into young adult fiction. Harris will be launching his tour in early December, and ‘The Magic Misfits’ hits bookstores on November 21. Check out the tour schedule below: Monday, Dec. 4, 6:30 p.m. at Symphony Space 2537 Broadway, New York, NY 10025 In partnership with Bank Street Bookstore Tickets: symphonyspace.org Tuesday, Dec. 5, 7 […]
