Also, Tormund Giantsbane hosts a doc about Vikings, the Mountain has an exhibition fight, and King Bran the Broken invites us to join him for the holidays.

On Game of Thrones, Sean Bean played Ned Stark, embodiment of all that is good and honorable…perhaps to a fault. But on the second season of Snowpiercer, TNT’s show about a high-speed train carrying the last surviving members of humanity as it circumnavigates a frozen world, he plays the villainous Mr. Wilford, who owns the train and looks like he intends to lord it over the underclasses in the back cars.

TNT released a new trailer the other day. Check it out:

A sequel has already be greenlit, and Pascal couldn’t be happier:

Over on HBO, both Gemma Whelan (Yara Greyjoy) and I are waiting for the second season of Gentleman Jack, which is a corking good period drama if you haven’t checked it out.

Did you know that Hafþór Júlíus Björnsson (the Mountain) is going to have an exhibition boxing match against Steve Ward, known as the oldest professional boxer in the world? He is, and it’s happening in just a few days:

Finally, Isaac Hempstead Wright (Bran Stark) takes us behind the scenes of his merry Christmas:
