Here’s another very cute Kit Harington story that you should only click on if you’re caught up or spoiled on Game of Thrones.

Pablo Schreiber is your new Mad Sweeney in American Gods.

This joint Alice in Wonderland and Peter Pan prequel Come Away sounds intriguing.

Orange Is the New Black to Premiere July 11th

NetflixNetflix’s newest original series, Orange Is the New Black, will premiere on July 11th, with all thirteen episodes made available for streaming that day. Based on the memoir by Piper Kerman, the comedy/drama is about a woman who spends a year in prison. Its stars include Taylor Schilling, Laura Prepon, Kate Mulgrew, and Pablo Schreiber, and it was created by Jenji Kohan of Weeds. Anyone excited about this one? I’ll admit that the premise doesn’t particularly grab me, but I like enough of those actors to give it a chance.
