Don't get attached to any of your favorite characters in the upcoming second season of "Game of Thrones," because star Lena Headey warns that "it can be bye-bye any time."
Her costar Sean Bean found that out the hard way in season one, but Headey teased that her character Cersei is splintering off on a very different path in season two. Westeros's favorite mad queen is on top of the world after she managed to kill off some of her many enemies in season one, and Headey teased that Cersei's power hungry tendencies might start to get the better of her.
"It's intriguing because she's crazy," Headey said with a laugh. "Under the whole stoic thing, she's a little nuts."

Sean Bean is ready to head back to the set of "Game of Thrones," with or without his head.
"Fringe" has literally entered a new era with its currently airing fourth season. Following the explosive events of the season three finale, Peter Bishop (Joshua Jackson) has been erased from existence. The result: a brand new timeline for Olivia Dunham (Anna Torv) and the rest of her colleagues, one in which Peter — both the one from our universe and the one from over there — never survived to adulthood.
Torv stopped by MTV News earlier in the week to talk about the new season of "Fringe," and we asked her to tease what's going down in tonight's fourth episode, titled "Subject 9." Though she initially had some trouble dropping hints — "I'm just such a bad tease," she laughed — she did offer a very tantalizing clue regarding how Olivia's past has changed in light of this new continuity.
For someone who doesn't exist, Peter Bishop sure is getting a lot of attention.
"Fringe," the breathtaking Fox series currently in its fourth year on television, is well known for taking bizarre risks and asking viewers to come along for the ride… but erasing one of the show's most important characters — Joshua Jackson's skeptic young genius Peter Bishop — completely from existence? That's a gigantic gamble, even for this show.
When Anna Torv, who stars in the series as brilliant FBI agent Olivia Dunham, stopped by MTV News this week to talk about the current season of "Fringe," we asked her the most important question of all: what is life like in a world without Peter Bishop?
After years and years of hoping, wishing, prepping our cut-off jean shorts and blueing ourselves, it finally looks like an “Arrested Development” movie is going to happen, and there’s an added bonus: creator Mitch Hurwitz and the cast confirmed over the weekend that there will also be a new nine or ten episode season before the movies’ release.
Now that the agony is over, let’s take a look back at the ups and downs of “AD” movie news over the years — and believe us, there’ve been a lot of them.
Monday night's two-hour debut of "Terra Nova" sits unwatched in my DVR, a victim of a new puppy who needs far too much attention and then my wife's insistence that if we were going to watch any TV it'd have nothing to do with dinosaurs and everything to do with finally catching up on Leslie Knope's political ambitions in Pawnee.
The day after, the web is abuzz over "Terra Nova," though not necessarily for reasons that make me think my wife and my dog kept me from being an early adopter of a show I'll be itching to check out each week. I plan to watch tonight, but I'll approach the DVR with caution. Anyone under the impression that Fox has served up a "Lost"-like time-travel mystery should now be fully aware the show is trying to attract not just geeks but the four-quadrant demographics so important in Hollywood (and mega-budget TV series).
Patrick Wilson is one of those actors who could be easy to hate: He's almost too handsome, totally charming and crazy talented. But he's also so darn nice that you can't help but root for him and seek out his work, the latest of which is his new CBS drama, "A Gifted Man."
In the show Wilson plays world-renowned neurosurgeon Michael Holt, whose meticulously organized, privileged life is thrown upside down when he starts seeing and interacting with his recently deceased ex-wife, who for some reason can't move into the afterlife and spends her time trying to teach Michael that life is about more than neurosurgery.
MTV News recently caught up with Wilson to get some insight into what to expect from the show, how he's handling all that medical jargon, and if he's ready for people to treat him like a real-life doctor.
On Thursday night, "The Office" fans finally learned who would be heading up the Scranton branch of Dunder Mifflin. James Spader's creepy, kooky Robert California would act as CEO and Ed Helms' bumbling, well-meaning Andy is now the new Michael Scott.
Fans learned that after Robert staged a coup and pushed out Kathy Bates' Jo Bennett out as CEO, he then hired Andy to helm Scranton. But, he hasn't gone far. While Andy sits in Michael's old office, Robert does all his work from the conference room. In addition to the shifting power within the department, Jim and Pam are also expecting and the planking trend hit town.
That's it, folks — the show's over. But even though "Entourage" aired its series finale last night, that doesn't mean the boys won't be back in town again sometime soon.
The cast and crew of "Entourage," producer Mark Wahlberg included, have long expressed their desire to bring the exploits of Hollywood star Vincent Chase and his trio of pals from the small screen to the big screen. Now that the show has ended with a finale that offered some closure but still left the door open for future adventures, it's time to start asking: what should the "Entourage" movie be about?
We've got some ideas for possible "Entourage" movie plots after the jump!
David Foster might not be voyaging where no men have gone before, but he certainly is returning to long untouched territory with his new "Star Trek" pitch.
Apparently Foster, who is the head of the sci-fi production company 1947 Entertainment, has been working on a "Trek" television pitch since 2006. He and the late Kevin Severson had developed the concept, and after Severson's death in 2010, Foster has continued to try to make their dream a reality.
Based on Foster's interview with the folks over at TrekWeb, he is getting pretty close to making that happened: "The series concept is fully developed, subject to change of course, with a solid 5-7 year series plan, pilot script and a conceptualized finale that intends to define 'Star Trek' for generations, extensive character bios, costume and ship/set designs, and more ... This is a drastic departure from the typical 8-10 page treatment of the previously pitched Star Trek series ideas that have not included even a pilot script."
