'Game of Thrones' Star Tommen Says Release the Tape!!! ... Of Alternate Ending

Exclusive
LISTEN TO THE FANS
TMZ.com

Tommen Baratheon is backing up what Tormund Giantsbane has said about an alternate ending to their hit show, "Game of Thrones" ... and goes further by demanding its release.

We got Dean-Charles Chapman Saturday in NYC and asked him about what costar Kristofer Hivju recently said to a British outlet about a different version of events for the 'GoT' finale -- which he said was mostly for fun, and something he probably couldn't talk about.

Dean plays it close to the vest here, not revealing the content of any such ending. But, he certainly seems to be confirming there was actually a second ending that was shot.

Granted, Dean's character -- who was prematurely crowned King of Westeros -- was killed off in season 6. Still though, he appears to know about the secret ending -- and is down to see it out there. Check it out ... he says the fans deserve at least that after being let down.

Of course, tons of people were pissed over the actual ending to the series -- including AOC and Senator Elizabeth Warren -- because they felt it was rushed and poorly written.

In honor of all the PO'd 'GoT' viewers, we'll echo what James Comey once said ... Lordy, we hope there are tapes.

Emilia Clarke I Got Pressure for Nude Scenes ... Just to Appease 'GoT' Fans

FEELIN' PRESSURED
Armchair Expert

Emilia Clarke says she was pushed to perform in the nude as a young actress getting her start on "Game of Thrones" ... and she's had fights on sets over her refusal to bare all again.

Emilia -- who rose to fame playing Daenerys Targaryen on 'GoT' -- opened up on Dax Shepard's "Armchair Expert" podcast about her experiences with nudity ... explaining that going nude early on Season 1 of 'Thrones' made others assume she was comfortable acting naked.

She says she was told she needed to perform nude so as not to disappoint her 'GoT' fans. Emilia says she fought to keep her body covered by issuing a "f*** you" to folks on set.

It's a pretty fascinating conversation ... Khaleesi says she didn't feel comfortable saying no to a "f***ton" of nudity as a 'GoT' rookie, but eventually learned she could set the barriers on how much she was willing to reveal after working with Jason Momoa, her onscreen love interest.

George R.R. Martin 'I'll Finish 'Game Of Thrones' Books Before Jets or Giants Win Super Bowl!!!

Good news, bad news for "Game of Thrones" fans!!!

The Good News ... author George R.R. Martin is finally giving a timetable on when he plans to finish the final two books from his "A Song of Ice and Fire" saga!!!

The Bad News ... George says they'll come out BEFORE the NY Jets or Giants win another Super Bowl -- so it could be a while!!!

Of course, Martin is a HUGE NY football fan -- he blogs about both teams -- but he's REALLY down on the Jets and Giants at the moment because, well, they suck!!!

But, don't get too upset NY fans ... Martin tells us he's actually warming up to the Giants' infamous Daniel Jones pick!!! So, that's a start!!!

Now, get back to writing ... we're waiting to hear what really happens to Arya!!!

'Game of Thrones' Author George R.R. U Sure That's Martin??? ... Look-alike Hits Beach

Exclusive
TMZ

George R.R. Martin ain't in Westeros anymore -- and with Winter officially having come and gone, it looks like the famed author hopped a dragon to SoCal ... emphasis on LOOKS like.

The "Game of Thrones" scribe was spotted at a beach in sunny Oceanside -- at least that's what we first thought when we saw this photo. Turns out -- this is George's freakin' doppelganger IN THE FLESH!!! Seriously, the resemblance is uncanny.

We reached out to George's rep to make sure it was in fact him, and we were told no dice!!! The rep says George was actually in a completely different state. The dude's got a crib in Santa Fe, NM -- so he very likely might've been there with his wife, Parris.

When we pressed the rep for George's location he rep told us ... "I know exactly where he is. Not California. Holed up writing."

As for his impostor here, the guy was only slightly less dressed down than the real McCoy -- rockin' a short-sleeve button-down shirt, matching pants and brighter version of GRRM's signature charcoal cap.

Something else to keep in mind ... Comic-Con just wrapped the weekend before in nearby San Diego. So, maybe this guy's still cosplayin'.

Doesn't appear the fake George was flocked by fans -- especially those disgruntled ones who've been bitching about a botched final 'GoT' season.

The good news for real George is if he ever does need someone to help him dodge angry mobs ... he can find him on King's Beach Landing!!!

Joe Jonas, Sophie Turner Check Out our Fancy French Wedding!!!

TMZ/Getty

Joe Jonas and Sophie Turner clearly pulled out all the stops for their second round of nuptials, and it was the polar opposite of an Elvis wedding.

Waiting for your permission to load the Instagram Media.

Sophie and Joe shared this pic of them walking down the aisle last Saturday at the French estate, Chateau de Tourreau. It was super glam, and lots of folks were on hand to cheer them on, including Nick and Priyanka, Kevin Jonas and his wife, Danielle.

Waiting for your permission to load the Instagram Media.

Sophie looked frickin' amazing ... no surprise, but still, amazing.  

It was a far cry from their first and official wedding in May, right after the Billboard Music Awards, where they beelined it down the strip to a small chapel where an Elvis impersonator did the honors as they exchanged Ring Pops and Dan + Shay serenaded them.

GETTIN' HITCHED

They needed to tie the knot in the U.S., but the real ceremony went down at the chateau.  

They left France for a honeymoon and jumped on a yacht in Capri. They had lots of company ... Katharine McPhee, who's on her honeymoon with David Foster, said on social media that Joe and Sophie were 2 yachts over from them. Fancy schmancy.  

Congrats Joe and Sophie ... you do weddings right. 

Joe Jonas & Sophie Turner Red Wedding Rehearsal Dinner

Backgrid

Joe Jonas and Sophie Turner are getting ready to tie the knot again with a nod to her "Game of Thrones" stardom ... by going full red wedding for their rehearsal dinner!!!

Joe and Sophie just arrived at La Mirande in France for their Friday night rehearsal dinner ... and the bride and groom are decked out in a matching bright-red ensemble.

Sophie rose to fame playing Sansa Stark on 'GoT' ... and the couple's dinner garb clearly looks like an homage to her time in the Seven Kingdoms. 

The red wedding theme only extends to Joe and Sophie though ... their star-studded dinner guests showed up wearing all white. Here's hoping their night ends better than the 'GoT' version did!!!

Check it out ... Priyanka Chopra, Nick Jonas, Kevin and Danielle Jonas, Ashley Graham and fellow 'GoT' alum Maisie Williams are all looking super fresh. Here's hoping no one spills during the feast!!!

Joe and Sophie already said "I Do" stateside during an early May surprise wedding in Vegas, complete with an Elvis impersonator ... but they're in France now for some formal nuptials. 

Looks like Walder Frey didn't make the guest list ... 'GoT' fans know that's a wise decision.

Joe Jonas & Sophie Turner Arrive at Wedding Venue ... Big Smiles at French Chateau

11:05 AM PT -- We just got some pics of the Jo Bros hanging poolside before the big event.

Sophie Turner's face says it all ... she's stoked to get married to Joe Jonas again, but this time in a place that's super formal and super fancy ... even for France.

Backgrid

The couple has arrived at what is presumably their official weekend wedding venue, the Château de Tourreau in Sarrians, and from the look of the place ... it's going to be epic.

The French chateau is a restored 18th century castle with 9 rooms, a luxurious pool, a winery and a tennis court ... so yeah, it'll be perfect for the 'gram.

Joe and Sophie's arrival at the Chateau follows a week-long trek across the country that started in Paris -- where they were joined by Nick and Priyanka -- with a stop in a Provence village away from everyone else to get some R&R.

It looks like it's the final countdown to the wedding ceremony now, though ... and we'll be on the lookout to see who's on the guest list, besides Dr. Phil.

As you may know, the TV host spilled the beans about the date of the wedding on an Instagram comment earlier this week, when he said ... "Easy now! 1 week to go! Ha! See you at the wedding!"

Of course, the couple already tied the knot in early May in a surprise Vegas ceremony officiated by an Elvis impersonator ... but word on social media was they had a formal wedding planned in France sometime in 2019.

And, here it comes. No word if this will be the final wedding party for the 2, or if they'll go the Nick and Priyanka route and tack on a few more.

Hodor from 'Game of Thrones' Man of Few Words During DJ Set ... Let the Music Do the Talkin'

HODOR ON THE MIX
Larry Flynt Hustler

Hodor from "Game of Thrones" must've still been in character during his DJ set this weekend -- he didn't talk much ... but there was A LOT of noise coming from his booth.

Actor Kristian Nairn came through for his DJing gig Friday night at Larry Flynt's Hustler Club in Vegas, where he'd been booked to perform for a Rave of Thrones event ... in honor of the Comic-Con going down, of course. It was a rooftop affair, full bar included.

Musically speaking, Kristian didn't disappoint. The dude did his thaaang well from behind the turntable, mixing in a bunch of EDM hits, and the crowd ate it up on the dance floor.

Like we mentioned earlier, Hodor wasn't in a chatty mood -- at least from what we can see in this video. Not even a courtesy "Hodor" mumble on the mic ... kind of a bummer, really.

BUT ... Kristian was cordial, waving at patrons who, naturally, shouted out his character's name. It also looks like folks showed out in full 'GoT' attire, with some even taking a seat on a makeshift Iron Throne.

Luckily, nobody endured death by flesh-eating white walkers this time around. Yeah, Hodor holds the door ... and holds it down pretty much everywhere else, including here.

'Game of Thrones' Hodor Rave of Thrones ... I'm a Strip Club DJ!!!

The biggest DJ in all of Westeros is taking his talents to Las Vegas ... Hodor from "Game of Thrones" is throwing it down on the 1s and 2s Friday at a strip club!!!

Actor Kristian Nairn, famous for playing Bran Stark's trusty sidekick in the super popular HBO series, will be the guest DJ Friday night at Larry Flynt's Hustler Club as part of Comic-Con weekend in Vegas.

The strip club is having a huge 'GoT' themed rave to kick off the weekend ... and come midnight, Hodor will be spinning tunes on the rooftop terrace as patrons dressed in cosplay dance the night away!!!

Turns out, club owners are HUGE fans of Hodor and the entire 'GoT' franchise ... and we're told the venue is gonna be tricked out to bring the show to life. Brothels were big in the Seven Kingdoms, so it makes sense.

What's the over/under on the number of times Kristian says "Hodor" during his DJ set???

Someone hold the door ... sounds like a great party.

Kit Harington Making Time for Fitness ... During 'Wellness' Stint

Kit Harington is finding healthy ways to release stress -- getting in a workout down the street from his stay at a "wellness center" ... aka rehab.

The "Game of Thrones" star was walking out of a gym Friday in the Connecticut neighborhood where he's been taking what his people call a mental health retreat ... at a luxury facility.

Kit, who played Jon snow on the extremely popular HBO series, was rocking jeans and a button down on his way out of the gym. His female companion appears to be someone connected to the facility -- maybe a sponsor ... she's been seen with him around town in late April.

As we reported ... Kit's reportedly getting treatment for exhaustion, stress and alcohol abuse at a facility that's believed to cost about $120,000 per month. As you can see, he's allowed to leave the facility from time to time.

We're told Kit spent about 90 minutes at the gym ... plenty of time to get in a killer workout.

Kit Harington Rep Says NOT in Rehab ... It's a 'Wellness Retreat'

3:34 PM PT -- Kit's reps got back to us, and say he "has decided to utilize this break in his schedule as an opportunity to spend some time at a wellness retreat to work on some personal issues."

They say he's NOT there for "rehab," and emphasize the words, "wellness retreat."

Kit Harington was hit hard by "Game of Thrones" coming to an end -- so hard, he checked himself into a rehab center for stress and alcohol before the final episode aired.

The actor, who famously played Jon Snow on 'Thrones,' entered a luxury Connecticut facility for a mental health retreat weeks before the May 19 finale ... according to the NY Post, which first reported his rehab stay.

Kit's been getting treatment for stress, exhaustion and alcohol abuse. The Post says his wife -- fellow 'GoT' star Rose Leslie -- has been very supportive of the decision to get professional help.

The rehab facility is believed to cost over $120,000 per month ... no word yet on when Harington will be released.

As you know, 'GoT' wrapped its highly-anticipated 8th final season earlier this month. Reviews of the whole season were extremely mixed, at best, and downright awful at worst. It still got HUGE ratings, though.

Video of Kit reacting to the final script in the 'GoT' behind-the-scenes documentary as he read the fate of his character and Emilia Clarke's Daenerys Targaryen went viral ... because he broke down in tears.

Clearly, he wasn't just being dramatic. He has since said he needed therapy after learning how the show ends for his character.

Kit's also been very open about how much the show's worldwide attention has impacted his life. He told Variety the "darkest" point was when Jon Snow was killed ... but later came back to life.

Elizabeth Warren Bran Shouldn't Have Won the 'GoT' ... He Didn't DO Anything

EXCLUSIVE
MISSED OPPORTUNITY
TMZ.com

Y'know that meme about Bran Stark not contributing anything to the group project, but still getting an A? Well, Elizabeth Warren is here to tell you why that's 100% correct.

We got the Massachusetts Senator and presidential hopeful Wednesday on Capitol Hill, where she elaborated on why she thinks Bran was totally the wrong choice for the crown ... an option no one seems happy with ... other than meme creators, of course.

Senator Warren explains it rather simply -- Bran was boring as hell in the series and didn't actually offer much of anything to the action OR the story ... unless you count a lineage discovery (that didn't go anywhere, ultimately) as mighty important.

Even if he did serve as solid representation for the disability community, Warren says that alone just doesn't cut it as far as development and arc over the whole series.

I WAS EXPECTING MORE

Sounds like EW's doubling down here on her shared rant with AOC from the other day -- a character more folks were invested in (like, say, Dany or Sansa) should've won the throne ... rather than just being written off as either crazy or complacent in the end.

Speaking of writing off females seeking powerful positions, Sen. Warren assures us she ain't gonna go down like any of the ladies in 'GoT.' Her story's in her hands, it seems.

'Game of Thrones' Robin Arryn I 'GoT' Milk, Now Fans Love Me ... Especially in the DMs!!!

EXCLUSIVE
OVERNIGHT HEARTTHROB
TMZ.com

The "Game of Thrones" actor unexpectedly getting the most love after the finale isn't Peter Dinklage, Emilia Clarke or even Kit Harington ... it's Lino Facioli, and he's blown away.

The former kid star turned grown-ass hottie who played Robin Arryn -- aka Breast Milk Boy -- on HBO's epic series joined us Tuesday on "TMZ Live" to talk about his huge glow-up from the final episode. While most fans have been bitching about the finale plot lines ... almost all of 'em LOVED the grown-up version of Robin!

Lino tells us it's insane and surreal, even more than expected ... because he actually forgot the finale was even airing! He says he awoke Monday morning to his phone blowing up after fans went nuts for his more mature and teen idol-esque appearance.

As 'Thrones' faithful know ... Lino first appeared in season one as a weird, bratty boy drinking milk straight from his mother's boob despite being a walking, talking pre-teen. He continued to be awkward and off-putting in later seasons.

In the finale, though, Robin shocked fans by showing up as the Lord of the Eyrie and pulling a Neville Longbottom from the 'Harry Potter' franchise. Translation -- he grew up and got hot.

Lino says he's already reaping the benefits in the form of thousands of added social media followers -- he went from around 5k to almost 46k on Instagram almost overnight. He says he's getting plenty of offers since the finale -- career-wise and DM-wise -- but knows one of his best options might be as a mouthpiece for the benefits of breastfeeding.

No one's gonna argue it did HIS body good!

Elizabeth Warren, AOC 'GoT' Writers Screwed Women Right Off the Iron Throne!!!

I WAS EXPECTING MORE

Sen. Elizabeth Warren and Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez are PISSED at the ending of "Game of Thrones" ... and they're lamenting the fact a woman didn't end up ruling all of Westeros.

The 2020 Presidential candidate and freshman Congresswoman are airing their grievances with HBO's writers ... ripping the men who wrote the script and bashing them for making Daenerys Targaryen go crazy in the final episodes (tiny spoiler alert).

Liz and AOC seemed to have their hearts set on Dany sitting on the Iron Throne when all was said and done -- but add they were also let down again by Sansa Stark's storyline (bigger spoiler alert).

As you know by now ... the wheelchair-bound Bran Stark ended up as king (umm, huge spoiler alert), a fact that earned some praise from the National Organization on Disability.

For pretty obvious reasons, Sen. Warren would love to have a woman earn the ultimate title. Nudge nudge, wink wink ... 2020 political foreshadowing??

No word if either signed the petition to remake the final season.

'Game of Thrones' Did Good for the Disabled, But ... Bran the Broken? Really???

EXCLUSIVE

"Game of Thrones" broke down barriers for the disabled community during its 8-year run ... a fact that's earning the show high praise, even though one group says producers made a big flub in the finale.

Felicia Nurmsen -- a top dog at the National Organization on Disability -- tells TMZ ... the hit HBO show gets tons of props for working on behalf of those with disabilities, 'cause it didn't shy away from the subject and served as a pretty accurate mirror to our society, even in a fantasy setting.

Specifically, Nurmsen says she's impressed with the story lines and ultimate fates of 2 of the most prominent characters with disabilities on 'GoT' -- Tyrion Lannister and Bran Stark.

She says even though wheelchair-bound Bran and Tyrion, a little person, were often written off by other characters, they landed in powerful positions in the end by resorting to natural born (or divinely-gained) gifts.

SPOILER ALERT -- if you're not among the 19 mil who watched Sunday night.

Bran is named King of Westeros and Tyrion becomes his hand.

That said ... Nurmsen can't help but point out the irony that even when a disabled person reaches the highest point -- the Iron Throne -- 'GoT' writers leaned into the narrative that disabled people aren't whole.

Case in point ... Tyrion and co. end up dubbing their new king, "Bran the Broken." You could see that as an attempt to embrace his disability as a good thing, but Nurmsen suggests it's problematic.

Two steps up, one step back?

'Game of Thrones' H2O No!!! Another Ep, Another Epic Blunder

First, it was a disposable coffee cup, then a regenerated hand ... and now a plastic water bottle has "Game of Thrones" fans fuddled over what the hell's going on in Westeros.

The massively popular HBO series came to an end Sunday night, but not before another blunder was called out by observant viewers -- a water bottle behind the left foot of Samwell Tarly at around the 46-minute mark of the finale.

It's hard to tell what brand of H2O Sam was sucking down, but hopefully they recycle in the Seven, err Six, Kingdoms.

Another viewer pointed out that a second bottle was visible on the ground behind Ser Davos, but it's not quite as clear.

The latest 'GoT' gaffe comes a week after a promotional image for episode 5 featured Jaime Lannister with his right hand still intact ... despite getting it chopped off in season 3.

And of course, there was the infamous modern-day coffee cup left sitting on a table next to Daenerys in episode 4 ... which was later scrubbed from the streaming versions to wipe away the mistake.

Clearly, the showrunners didn't learn their lesson.
