What are the stars of Game of Thrones doing now that they’re through shooting the most popular series in the history of the world? Let’s see.

First up, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau (Jaime Lannister) waxes poetic about soccer, comparing the passion and competitiveness of the sport’s fans and teams to the conflicts of Game of Thrones. “The things I do for love,” he muses. “Game of Thrones and Leeds [United Soccer Club] have more in common than you’d know. Drama, intrigue, love and loss, battle for the throne.”

And a “King in the North” reference. And wait, did the whole thing rhyme?

Find someone who speaks as passionately about you the way Nikolaj Coster-Waldau talks about soccer and never let them go.

From son to father, Charles Dance (Tywin Lannister) will be narrating a docu-drama for Netflix, titled Rise of Empires: Ottoman, according to Deadline. Here’s a preview…without Dance’s narration. Use your imagination:

The show — which was originally called Ottoman Rising — was filmed in Turkey. It’s a six-part series that will tell the “epic 15th-century story of Mehmed II, known as Mehmed the Conqueror, chronicling his astonishing and fabled rise from 13-year-old Child Sultan to toppling Constantinople and becoming the ruler of the Ottoman Empire.”

Rise of Empires: Ottoman hits Netflix on January 24.

Sticking with the Lannisters, Lena Headey (Cersei Lannister) was spotted at the premiere of HBO’s The Outsider, serving comfortable fashion:

That’s HBO’s President of Programming Casey Bloys with her.

The Outsider is an adaptation of Stephen King’s book of the same name. It follows the fallout of the arrest of a popular midwestern teacher for the rape, mutilation, and killing of an 11-year-old boy. But was he set up? Find out when the show debuts this Sunday on HBO.
