'Game Of Thrones' Star Never Had a Chance ... Crushed by Arm Wrestling Legend

9/17/2015 12:17 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Exclusive Details

The massive "Game of Thrones" star who popped the Viper's eyes out of his head, didn't do so well in the arm wrestling arena, and shockingly went down HARD to champ Devon Larratt.

Yeah, hard to imagine 6'9" 419 pound Thor Bjornsson losing any test of strength, but "The Mountain" met his match in Larratt ... who gives up 200 lbs. to Thor!

2-time champ Larratt joined us on TMZ Hollywood Sports to talk about how he took down Thor ... who, by the way, has been a finalist in the last 4 World's Strongest Man competitions.

Check it out.

'Game of Thrones' Michiel Huisman I Got Shorted!!!

Michiel Huisman from "Game of Thrones" left little to the imagination as he left a pool party in New Orleans.

Michiel, who plays Daario Naharis, reinforced that there's more to the show than blazing hot chicks.

'GOT' Star Nathalie Emmanuel Fan Drops $55k at Nightclub ... But Fails to Impress

7/29/2015 12:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF


"Game Of Thrones" has a fan base as big as a White Walker army, and one of those fans just threw away a ton of dough at a failed attempt to impress Khaleesi's right hand girl, Nathalie Emmanuel.

Nathalie, who plays Missandei, was clubbing it up with her gal pals at London hotspot China White last Saturday ... when a wealthy mega fan at the club dropped $55k to party with her, with the help of 12 bottles of Dom and a 6 liter bottle of Belvedere, which he sent to her table.

The mid-40s fanboy also commissioned a personalized show in which he controlled club lights and a CO2/confetti cannon.

Problem is, Nathalie wasn't impressed and sent the booze back.

A true fan would have known, such tactics would have only worked on Cersei Lannister.

0722-jon-snow-the-image-direct-01"Game of Thrones" fans, shield your eyes with some Valyrian steel if you haven’t seen last season 'cause this is a huge spoiler  … Jon Snow is back next season after his death, and we got the pics to prove it.

Kit Harington -- AKA Jon Snow -- was spotted in Belfast with fellow 'GOT' co-star Ben Crompton. The show started filming in Ireland this week for season 6.

We're told Jon Snow is very dead … but we know he'll still appear.

He could be brought back in different forms ... maybe as a White Walker.

Big sigh of relief, fans ... Jon's in Belfast. 

'Game of Thrones' FAIL 4 New Episodes LEAKED

Breaking News

0412-game-of-thrones-HBO-01There has been an epic breach on one of the most popular and successful shows on TV ... 4 of the 10 Season 5 episodes of "Game of Thrones" have been leaked ... and the downloading is predictably insane.

The timing is awful ... Season 5 kicks off tonight. It looks like someone took a DVD that was sent to the media for previews, blurred the watermark and posted it on several torrent sites.

As for the number of illegal downloads ... TorrentFreak claims in just 3 hours it was the beneficiary of more than 100,000 downloads.

HBO just issued a statement, acknowledging the leak vowing to actively figure out how it happened.

"Game of Thrones" is the most pirated TV show out there ... and this ain't gonna help.

'Game of Thrones' Writers We Want to Return the 'Sunny' Favor!

3/26/2015 10:47 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

It's never sunny in Westeros, but that doesn't mean the guys from "It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia" can't pay a visit ... and the guys behind "Game of Thrones" want to make that happen. 

The unlikely alliance of shows began in 2013, when writers David Benioff and D.B. Weiss penned an episode of "Sunny" called "Flowers for Charlie." And Wednesday night in New York City ... the guys said they are still trying to figure out a way to have Charlie Day and Rob McElhenney appear on their show.

We chatted with the "GoT" guys about a few different topics, so if you're a fan of the show ... there's bound to be something in there for you.  

'Game of Thrones' Star Crushes Strong Man Record ... In a Kilt!!

3/10/2015 8:27 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

More insane feats of strength from the guy who plays "The Mountain" on "Game of Thrones" -- this time, he threw a 56-pound kettle bell 19 FEET IN THE AIR ... setting a new world record! 

Hafþór Björnsson was competing at the 27th Arnold Classic in Columbus, Ohio this weekend -- in a kilt -- when he decided to push his kettle bell swingin' skills to the limit.

Check out the video (h/t to BroBible btw) -- haven't seen Bjornsson this excited since he crushed the Red Viper's head like a watermelon. 

Michael Sam Destroys TMZ Camera Guy ... With Epic 'Game Of Thrones' Ruse

2/24/2015 12:45 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Michael Sam just dominated a TMZ photog at LAX like he was The Mountain ... and we were Oberyn Martell ... and it's pretty damn hilarious.  

Here's how it went down ... One of our crack camera guys got the newly engaged Sam to not only tell us when and where he's getting married ... but who he's inviting and where he's registered.

Awesome, right? 

Now for the twist ... He's getting married in Westeros with Tyrion and Tywin Lannister -- AND Daenerys Targaryen (good luck with those three) -- and he's registered at King's Landing.

Yeah, it's Red Wedding-level deception. 

Here's the thing ... most of you probably got the fact that those are all references to the HBO show "Game Of Thrones" -- but the one dude who didn't was our camera guy. 

Last time we send Hodor out in the field ... 

Jason Momoa My Sun and Stars ... He's Hot!

Wet. He wears it well.

'Game of Thrones' Creator Geno Smith Sucks

11/11/2014 7:36 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
1111-george-geno-getty-01He lost 7 games in a row. He lost the starting job. And now Geno Smith has lost the support of a HUGE NY Jets fans ... "Game of Thrones" creator George R.R. Martin.

Martin is such a big Jets fan, he writes a blog about the team -- and in his most recent post, George took some shots at the sophomore QB ... basically saying he sucks and it's time to move on.

George was waxing poetic about the Jets' victory over the Steelers ... writing, "For the moment, I will enjoy the win and wonder what might have happened if Rex [Ryan] had only benched Geno Smith earlier. (I was distressed to see Geno back as second string and Matt Simms inactive. Simms showed more in his brief appearance last week than Geno has all season)."

He continued ... "Gang Green DOES have some good players, if only they could get a quarterback."

Martin also muses about the downside to winning games so late in the season.

"It is certainly more fun to watch the Jets win than to watch them lose, but if they start racking up victories now, all it will do is ruin their chances of getting a real franchise QB in the draft."

Haven't seen a prodigy fall this hard since Bran Stark.

Peter Dinklage Spanish Fans Can't Get Enough ... Of His Stunt Double

10/21/2014 12:25 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Either Peter Dinklage has the most loyal fans in the world ... or the dumbest -- which is a label they might be stuck with after screaming in joy for a look-a-like.

You'd like to give the overeager fans outside the cast's hotel in Osuna, Spain the benefit of the doubt. Maybe they're simply cheering anyone who has anything to do with "Game of Thrones."

However, it seems clear they can't tell the guy is a fake.

To us, Peter's stunt double looks more like the love child of Dinklage and Dave Grohl ... but judge for yourself.

And to the good people of Spain -- they don't all look alike.

'Game of Thrones' Star Slams Steve-O's Frost Giant

10/17/2014 12:39 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Sansa Stark has lots of pent up anger ... and the video of her taking it all out on Steve-O's nuts is pretty damn hard to watch.

Sophie Turner punted the "Jackass" star right between his field goal posts with extremely painful results during an event for a big new movie they're both in called "Barely Lethal."

The flick is about a teenage special ops agent who fakes her own death, then enrolls in high school.

If it's anything like this video, we're sold.

'Game Of Thrones' It Costs a Ton ... To Keep Cersei's Nude Scene Secret

10/6/2014 12:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Game Of Thrones Nude
Lena Headey's naked bod was finally unleashed on the "Game of Thrones" set -- sort of -- but producers racked up a $50,000/day tab to shoot the scene ... and keep it under wraps. 

According to our GoT spies ... more than 200 security guards were hired to protect the set while shooting the "Walk of Shame" scene -- where Lena's character Cersei walks stark naked out of a church and through town. We're told the 4-day shoot in Croatia got so pricey because of the added crew -- and producers having to pay local shop owners to shut down and leave the area. 

Cell phones were banned on set so photos wouldn't get leaked (oops!) -- and everyone signed confidentiality agreements that threatened $250,000 lawsuits for violators.  

It's been a bitch to get this far. We broke the story ... the whole scene was nearly called off when church leaders banned any nude shoots. They ended up shooting on the other side of town.  

As for who actually witnessed Lena, au naturel -- we're told only 4 key crew members were present for the unveiling.
