"Joaquin Phoenix’s Commodus in Gladiator was certainly an inspiration for my characterization of Joffrey, that had a big impact, the smirk. It’s interesting sometimes  when an audience can empathize with a villain. But to get completely lost in it, it’s exciting just to be intrinsically evil and not to have a speck of good or humanity in their bones."- Jack Gleeson  (x)

"She was more disturbed by Mr. Knightley’s not dancing than by any thing else.—There he was, among the standers-by, where he ought not to be; he ought to be dancing,—not classing himself with the husbands, and fathers, and whist-players, who were pretending to feel an interest in the dance till their rubbers were made up,—so young as he looked!— He could not have appeared to greater advantage perhaps anywhere, than where he had placed himself. His tall, firm, upright figure, among the bulky forms and stooping shoulders of the elderly men, was such as Emma felt must draw every body’s eyes; and,excepting her own partner, there was not one among the whole row of young men who could be compared with him."


My wife just did a Con in Philadelphia ‘cause she’s a bit of a Sci-Fi icon on a show she did called Firefly. She plays a character called Zoë. She’s Captain Mal’s second-in-command. She was also in a show called Cleopatra 2525, and she did many episodes of Xena Warrior Princess and many episodes of the Journey of Hercules. So we’re both sort of Sci-Fi people.

Actually my wife is Wonder Woman. My wife is Wonder Woman. She has the lasso, she has the magic lasso, she has the Amazonian physique, great intelligence, and matchless beauty.

This was too cute not to share! Laurence Fishburne talks about his wife Gina Torres on the season 5 episode 11 StarTalk Radio show “A Conversation with Laurence Fishburne.” I suspect he did it to distract Neil deGrasse Tyson from his “will you write scifi already because the fans are there” question but he did it with gusto so I forgive him. (I do not forgive Dr. Tyson for not knowing enough about Firefly! He has some catching up to do gorramit!)

They will live again in freedom.

It was a sucky end to the game, but on the bright side, Steener’s aversion to shirts continues in the postgame interview.

"Do you now?" said the dragon somewhat flattered, even though he did not believe a word of it.
"Truly songs and tales fall utterly short of the reality, O Smaug the Chiefest and Greatest of Calamities," replied Bilbo.
