With Game of Thrones season 5 casting now over halfway over, it's the perfect time to receive some season 6 casting news. Lucky for you, that's exactly what Watchers on the Wall reported May 26.

This speculation may easily leak into spoiler territory, so be warned!

Seemingly, the most important news out of their reporting is the apparent casting of Randyll Tarly, otherwise known as Sam's dad. The listing describes the casting as: "Aged 50's to 60's, he's one of the greatest soldiers in Westeros- a humorless martinet, severe and intimidating. He demands martial discipline in the field and in his home."

For those that read the books, if that proves true, it highlights at least one of the plots that would come next year and the places the story will travel.

Here are the other castings Watchers on the Wall announces:

Pirate, man in his 40's to late 50's. He's "an infamous pirate who has terrorized seas all around the world. Cunning, ruthless, with a touch of madness." He's a dangerous-looking man. A very good part this season.

Mother, in her 50's. She's a sweet, plump, and adoring mother, and has a soft spot for one of her children who benefits from her decency.

Sister, in her early 20s. She's a kind, friendly and unpretentious woman.

Brother, in his early to mid-20's . Athletic, a good hunter, an excellent swordsman, manly, not particularly bright but the favourite child of the father.

Priest, in his 40's or 50's. A gruff ex-soldier who found religion. Now a no-nonsense rural priest who ministers to the poor of the countryside. He's salt-of-the-earth man who has weathered many battles.



What do you think, readers? Any more of those ring a bell?

According to the newest rumors, it looks like Tom Hardy is too busy to play Rick Flagg in DC's super-villain team-up, Suicide Squad.

The reports also suggest that director, David Ayer his courting his End of Watch star, Jake Gyllenhaal, to take over the role. He may not have been nominated for Nightcrawler, but we think he can play an unstable leader of a covert team of convicted felons.

If you were worried about Matt Smith's career after leaving Doctor Who, you can stop now. The 11th Doctor was just officially announced to star in a yet-to-be-named role in the next three Terminator movies.

The movie already has Game of Thrones' Emilia Clarke as Sarah Connor, Jai Courtney as Kyle Reese, Jason Clarke as John Connor, and an appearance by Arnold himself. With the good guys pretty much set, we wonder if Smith will try his hand at villainy?

What do you think of the news?

Remember last month when the rumor mill thought Chris Pine would be playing Steve Trevor in an upcoming Wonder Woman movie? Well, that may be a smoke screen to hide an even bigger announcement: Pine is the Green Lantern, Hal Jordan.

The full rumor is even crazier. Apparently, the Green Lantern Corps, which acts as an intergalactic police force, will be active on Earth when the first Justice League movie is released in 2017, and two Green Lanterns will be joining Batman, Superman and Wonder Woman in their fight. That's right, both classic Lanterns, Hal Jordan and John Stewart, will be active simultaneously in DC's movie universe.

The question remains, who will play John Stewart?

Father Gabriel Stokes first met Rick's band in issue 65 of The Walking Dead comic series, and now he's coming to the show (played by actor Seth Gilliam). In the comics, Father Stokes survived the outbreak by turning away his own congregation, and now feels he must atone for that sin by preaching to the other survivors. There's a history of mistrust there.

How will he be different in the show? Is he part of the band of Terminus survivors? What do you think?
