The ‘Games’ afoot: HBO’s ‘Game of Thrones’ gears up

HBO says the official start date of production on the pilot of “Game of Thrones,” one of the network’s most hotly anticipated projects, is Oct. 24.

Principal photography begins in earnest the following week in Northern Ireland. Other filming locations reportedly include Scotland and Morocco.

The network also confirmed that Isaac Hempstead-Wright has been cast in the key role of Bran Stark, the son of Eddard Stark, a powerful lord. HBO’s “Thrones” pilot, which has not yet been picked up as a series, is based on the first book of Martin’s “A Song of Ice and Fire” series of novels.

Heroes shocker: Original cast member will die soon

For those of you still watching, there’s big news about NBC’s Heroes: Someone will die!

At least that’s what E! Online’s Kristin Dos Santos reported:

Sources over on NBC’s Heroes confirm to me that a major death is in the works, and this is not one that will go unnoticed by even the most casual fan.

Game of Thrones actually sounds pretty good, what do you think?
