Peter Dinklage on Why It’s ‘the Perfect Time’ to End ‘Game of Thrones’

Peter Dinklage on Why It’s ‘the Perfect Time’ to End ‘Game of Thrones’
Game of Thrones” star Peter Dinklage thinks the show is coming to an end at the perfect time.

“It’s time,” the actor said at Variety’s Sundance Film Festival studio. “Storywise, not just for all our lives. It’s the perfect time to end it. Sometimes shows stay on a little too long, the jumping-the-shark thing.”

Dinklage plays fan-favorite character Tyrion Lannister in the HBO mega-hit. Over the course of the show’s run, Tyrion has gone from simple Lannister royalty, to the Hand of the King for the reviled Joffrey Baratheon, to a patricidal fugitive, and now stands as the Hand of the Queen to Daenerys Targaryen. Dinklage added in the interview that it’s never easy saying goodbye to such a beloved character.

“It’s bittersweet when it’s time to move on with everything,” he said. “It’s always the sad part of our business, because you get pockets of great people for short

Emmy spotlight: Karin Konoval (‘The X-Files’) comes out from under the bed and wows audiences with new role(s)

Emmy spotlight: Karin Konoval (‘The X-Files’) comes out from under the bed and wows audiences with new role(s)
Karin Konoval has already made her mark on “The X-Files” thanks to her iconic performances as under-the-bed villain Mrs. Peacock in “Home” and fortune teller Madame Zelma in “Clyde Bruckman’s Final Repose,” but her latest role(s) in this week’s “Plus One” could make her mark on the Emmys. As twins Judy Poundstone and Chucky Poundstone and their two dopplegangers, Konoval effortlessly portrays four complicated, quirky characters who have a telepathic link. And, oh yeah, did we mention Chucky just happens to be a man?

As we know, the Emmys love when actors take on multiple roles — just ask Tatiana Maslany who prevailed for portraying all those clones in “Orphan Black” (2016). Might Konoval earn her first career nomination at the 2018 Emmys for playing this gender-bending group of doppelgangers?

Sundance 2018 Indie Episodic Preview: The Most Anticipated TV Pilots and Premieres at This Year’s Festival
Don’t let the title fool you: The Sundance Film Festival has been featuring television programs for years, be it the slew of documentaries that end up on HBO, Showtime, and Netflix or pilots that earn a special showcase like “Animals.” did in 2015.

But 2018 is special. This year, Sundance is dedicating an entire section to episodic programming, including short-form series, docu-series, traditional pilots, and more experimental premieres. It’s all coming together under the Indie Episodic banner, and it’s all designed with one clear mission:

“There is no clear path to series if you’re trying to do it independently — if you’re going to try and shoot your own pilot, and then try and get picked up,” Sundance programmer Charlie Sextro told IndieWire. “There’s a clear way [in] making an independent film: It gets picked up at Sundance, and then it gets out to the world.

‘SNL’: Jessica Chastain Breaks Character to Ask What Even Matters Anymore — Watch
Jessica Chastain was excited to host “Saturday Night Live” for the first time last night, but you’d never know it from the show’s most overtly political skit. Playing the host of a game show called “What Even Matters Anymore,” the “Molly’s Game” star eventually broke character as she pondered the current state of affairs under Donald Trump — and why none of the terrible things he does seem to have any consequences. Watch below.

TV Review: ‘The Resident’ on Fox

Fox’s latest attempt at a fresh medical drama, “The Resident,” is a surprisingly cynical look at human nature and corporatized healthcare. That’s a refreshing, dark underside to what is otherwise a pretty run-of-the-mill story: Handsome young professionals, dramatic medical emergencies, and feverish hookups in empty exam rooms. Cary Agos — I mean, Matt Czuchry — plays lead Conrad Hawkins, a third-year rock-star resident who in the premiere episode is assigned first-year, fresh-faced newbie Devon Pravesh (Manish Dayal). Conrad is a great doctor, but he’s no fun to hang out with: He’s brash, peremptory, and borderline chauvinist, suffused with the god complex that make doctors so much fun to be around. Devon pretty much immediately has a bad time of it.

But in what seems to be a signature part of “The Resident’s” ethos, Devon isn’t exactly lovable, either: He’s sporting an expensive gold watch on his first day, complaining about Conrad

Camila Cabello Performs A Fun Classroom Version Of “Havana” With Jimmy Fallon And The Roots

I kind of think I like this version of Havana from Camilla Cabello with Jimmy Fallon and The Roots just a little better than the radio version. There are times when the music just gets in the way of the lyrics and becomes so much noise that it drowns it out. Sometimes just hearing the basic elements of music along with the lyrics is best simply because it’s easier to get into and doesn’t overwhelm the listener on any particular level. Music is very subjective and doesn’t sound the same to any two people all the time, so it’s all
