The big entertainment news of the past day, has been about Seth Rogen and James Franco’s film The Interview, which has been pulled from theaters by Sony Pictures after the hackers responsible for gaining access to confidential Sony documents threatened violence to any theater chains that went through with the film’s planned Christmas Day release. Pretty much everyone who’s anyone in both politics and entertainment has had an opinion on the matter–including A Song of Ice and Fire author George R.R. Martin.
