JUSTIN TIMBERLAKE TO HOST 2014 OSCARS? A "GAME OF THRONES" PREQUEL - PLUS NEW SEASON 3 CHARACTER PICTURES! DAVID TENNANT'S "SPIES OF WARSAW" MINI SERIES ON BBC AMERICA

Here's an interesting gossip: rumour has it that the top candidate for hosting next year's Oscars is everybody's beloved pop and r'n'b star, comedian and actor Justin Timberlake! After becoming famous as N'Sync member and then becoming one of world's most popular solo artists, Justin also proved himself as a great actor in a number of films. He is currently enjoying both critical and popular praise not just for his new album (you can check out his brilliant new video MIRRORS below) but also for his comedy work at Saturday Night Live! Due to his outstanding music and dancing talent, his comedy prowess, his ability to host and to improvise, he is now apparently very high on Academy's list for next year's host! According to some sources around the net he was one of the leading candidates for the gig in previous years too but was, at that time, considered too young and unseasoned. What do you think? Would you like to see delightful Justin Timberlake as Academy Awards Host next year?



AMAZING NEW GAME OF THRONES PICTURES
  A few days ago I posted amazing new character pictures for the third season of GAME OF THRONES but now I have some more photos featuring the main characters from the epic show. You can see brilliant Richard Madden as Robb Stark King of the North, Emilia Clarke as Daenerys Targaryen Dragon queen, Kit Harington as Jon Snow, Robb's half-brother, and Nikolaj Coster Waldau as Jaime Lannister with Lena Headey as his sister Cercei and Michelle Fairley as Catelyn Stark. With the full scale war that continues between the houses Stark, Lannister and Baratheon, and between the remaining great houses Greyjoy, Tully, Arryn, and Tyrell, the third run of the HBO epic show will see a very ancient evil awakening in the farthest north. Amidst the war and political confusion, a neglected military order of  misfits, the Night's Watch, is all that stands between the realms of men and icy horrors beyond! The new season is scheduled to start March 31 in USA and within the next week worldwide! 
 
GAME OF THRONES PREQUEL?
  It is also interesting that talking to IGN George R.R. Martin confirmed that there are talks for a prequel to GAME OF THRONES which would be set hundred years before the events in the current show and would be based on his novellas "The Hedge Knight", "The Sworn Sword" and "The Mystery Knight", set in the same world, in the world of Westeros, but a few centuries earlier, following two characters called Dunk and Egg. Those stories are more adventurous and lighter in tone than GAME OF THRONES. Spin-offs are kinda trendy these days, ONCE UPON A TIME is about to get its WONDERLAND spin-off with the Mad Hatter in the lead role, and  SPARTACUS could also get its CAESAR spin-off in the future. VAMPIRE DIARIES are getting their own ORIGINALS spin-off next season. 

SPIES OF WARSAW
Another video for you today is for BBC's mini series SPIES OF WARSAW which are coming to BBC America April 3rd!  Based on
 Alan Furst’s acclaimed novel, this is a thrilling spy story set in Poland, Paris and London in the years leading up to the Second World War. The drama finds French and German intelligence operatives locked in a life-and-death struggle. At the French embassy, the new military attaché, Colonel Jean Francois Mercier (David Tennant), a decorated hero of the 1914 war, is drawn into a world of abduction, betrayal and intrigue in the diplomatic salons and back alleys of Warsaw. At the same time, the handsome aristocrat finds himself in a passionate love affair with Anna (Janet Montgomery), a Parisian lawyer for the League of Nations. Their complicated love affair intensifies as German tanks drive through the Black Forest.

  6. Justin Timberlake and Jimmy Fallon should host the Oscars together. They're very funny when they get together.

    Cool pictures for Game of Thrones! Love the dragon pics. And I think I'll check out that Spies of Warsaw when it comes on. Looks good. :)

  7. I am one of the few people on earth who totally does not get the appeal of Justin Timberlake. I mean at all!!! He always looks dirty to me like he needs a shower. Perhaps if I bathed him I would find something appealing, but since that ain't gonna happen I just have to remain in the minority.

  8. My like for Justin Timberlake seems to wane as I get older - even though he seems to get more popular.

    Am I the only one NOT on the Game of Thrones bandwagon?

    1. nope, I don't like GAME OF THRONES either, overly dark and grim, but we still love the dragons :)

  9. Justin has matured into quite a handsome and talented man. When he was first starting out I underestimated him as just another pretty face.

    Spies of Warsaw is one I will certainly want to see. The topic is fascinating and I absolutely adore Tenant. He is by all accounts a very sweet and kind person. And he's Scottish, so there you go.

    1. I always had faith in him, I often predict future stars :)

      Oooh, we do love anything Irish, Scottish or Welsh, dahlink!

  10. I think anyone that hosts the Oscars is going to be harshly judged, but I think JT could do it. He's so multitalented. He is one of my favorite hosts on Saturday Night Live.

    1. Only if they're vulgar and primitive like Seth was. Hugh Jackman was praised as the host.

  12. Love, love David Tennant and will watch everything that he is in, even when he plays a rat bastard like Bartie Crouch in HP.

    Those GoT pics are so gorgeous and I would love to see Timberlake host the Oscars. I adore him.
