'Great Wall' Lines Up 'Game of Thrones' Star Pedro Pascal

Pedro Pascal, who is best known as Oberyn Martell (a.k.a. The Red Viper) on HBO's Game of Thrones, is in negotiations to join Legendary's Untitled Great Wall Project. Matt Damon is still in talks to star, after entering negotiations back in September.

Burn Notice: 4 Reasons Why It’s Right To End

Beware, spoilers from the start.

Burn Notice is finally coming to an end on September 12th. Don’t get me wrong, for I am an avid fan of the series, it is easily one of my favourite shows currently on television, I do not want the series to end due to my own selfish reasons, but I do believe it is the right decision by the staff, it is better to go out strong rather than fade away.

Matt Nix’s series idealises a contemporary take on action vehicles of the 90′s, such as The A-Team and MacGyver, and has proved immensely popular with the series still competing strongly in the ratings table.

Burn Notice follows Michael Westen (Jeffrey Donovan), a wrongly discredited spy, trying to figure out why he was ‘burned’ by the CIA and who was behind it, teamed with his on-off girlfriend and gun runner Fiona Glenanne

An angel, a forest of Christmas trees, and a very good reason not to open your presents early: you can tell Stephen Moffat has had fun putting a tinselly Tardis spin on the festive components. This year's Who panto takes its cues from The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe as the Doctor visits 1940s Britain, where he finds mum Claire Skinner and her two kids waiting for dad Alexander Armstrong to fly his Lancaster Bomber home for the holidays.

Comic-Con 2011 Recap: 158 Exclusive Interviews, 135 Stories, and 308 Videos
It's been one full week since a billion sexy nerds descended upon San Diego for their annual Comic-Con event, which has become the premiere Hollywood launching pad for just about everything in the way of entertainment. This was a strange year, as no one property walked away from the grit, glitz, glamour, and geek sweat of the experience better for showing off its wares to what has become a very bored public.

It's true. If Comic-Con 2011 will be remembered for anything, it's the ennui that lingered around most attendees like the stench of the dead. They didn't want to be impressed, and even the Twihards stayed quiet when it came to their precious The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 1. Maybe that's because, four years into the franchise, they know damn well what they're going to get. There was an enthusiastic showing, one of the biggest ever, for Glee's Hall H presentation.
