'Game Of Thrones' May Carry On Longer Than Expected!

Game of Thrones
HBO has revealed that hit series Game of Thrones may be going a bit further than the orignal seven planned seasons by producers David Benioff and Dan Weiss.

During the pay network's Television Critics Association (TCA) press tour on Thursday, programming president Michael Lombardo said that despite talks in the past about the show ending after its seventh season, which Benioff and Weiss have discussed during interviews, it now looks like eight seasons may be the goal -- and maybe even more than that!

"Seven-seasons-and-out has never been the conversation," Lombardo told critics at the TCA...

Dog Lover Jennifer Beals Would 'Never Jeopardize An Animal's Safety'

Jennifer Beals
Jennifer Beals has come under fire from animal activists for allegedly leaving her dog in a hot car on Wednesday.

The Flashdance star was caught on video in West Vancouver, Canada, where she told a concerned passerby that everything was "fine," thanking him for his concern. The passerby then informed her that he was calling the authorities.

A rep for British Columbia's SPCA said that the day's temperature, which peaked at around 77 degrees Fahrenheit, was not "fine" enough to leave an animal unattended in a vehicle with the windows cracked only a few inches.

"In this temperature, I don't...

Delevingne, who has made the crossover from modeling to acting, was blasted by the hosts after the interview was cut short because she gave a few sarcastic answers to their mundane questions.

To start, she was introduced as "Carla," and the first question she was asked was if she read the John Greene book that the film was based upon.

Fallon & Cruise Get Nostalgic In Latest LSB

No Risky Business Here, Jimmy Fallon And Tom Cruise Take On 'Top
Tom Cruise joined Jimmy Fallon on "The Tonight Show" on Monday night for a round of Lip Sync Battle -- the skit that started the whole Spike TV series phenomenon.

Fallon and his guest took to the microphones, and while we hoped he'd pull out some of his Les Grossman moves from "Tropic Thunder," he wasn't able to save a couple of weak song choices, which paled in comparison to the energy of the host.

Cruise's first song, The Weeknd's "Can't Feel My Face," nearly stopped before he could get started, but despite Fallon's (fake) hype for it, he took on the Rolling Stones' "Undercover of the N...
