Jack Gleeson: "One of these days, Cersei , one of these days, POW, to the moon! If we have a moon on this planet, I'm still not clear if this is Earth or not".

If they end up at the same school, someone could end up taking classes from Joffrey and Robocop in the same semester.

He really should go on the professional pool tournament.... Boy, he is great! Jeez, that old fat man. Look at the way he moves: like a dancer... And those fingers, them chubby fingers. That stroke... it's like he's, uh, like he's playin' the violin or somethin'.

That kid is an acting genius.  I have never hated a character as much as Joffrey, and this kid just pulls it off.  Hope he doesn't suffer for it in the future.

/except well Janice and Livia Soprano.

He's probably in for a long, lucrative but creatively stifling career being typecast in the same role. If money isn't his prime concern its a good idea to get out while he has options.

/Despite the fact that he plays one of the most easily hated characters in recent memory, he's apparently a really really nice guy.

I'm only on the first season so I'm not in full throttle hate for the character.  However, this character gets the full on hate from me.  Bravo to the actor.

Trust me if you don't hate Joffrey by season 3 you should probably be in a mental ward or prison.

Good lord. I started rewatching The Sopranos when James Gandolfini passed. I had forgotten how much I freaking despise both of those characters. Janice especially. Joffery doesn't even come close to Janice in my book.

Yeah. I mentioned that it's good that Jack Gleason has no interest ion doing any more acting.  He'd have a hard time shedding the hate for this role.

It's too bad that Jack is a natural blonde, the same as Jeffy.

Christoph Watlz was perfect in Inglorious Bastards. I hated everything about him in that movie.

HE plays a leading role in the hit series 'Game of Thrones' but yesterday actor was made a scholar at Trinity College. ...Scholars are students who have demonstrated exceptional knowledge and understanding of their subjects. They are elected annually in various subjects as the result of an exam held in the week before the start of the second term.

I'm happy for him, and it's always nice to see child actors giving themselves a chance at a career outside of show business. But I really think it's long past time that Trinity College dropped its archaic "Rape At Crossbow-Point Studies" curriculum.

He's pretty much going tobe type-cast as a brat for the rest of his life.

In recognition of his accolade, he and the other scholars are now entitled to a seat around the dinner table in the Dining Hall at Trinity College.

I'm sure he'll make an excellent scholar and a good educator to his students. Unfortunately, all of his students will still think of him as "Professor Joffrey", and they'll end up treating him like the Dean in "Homer Goes to College".

After Season 2, I said this kid needs to do a ROAD TRIP-style sex farce to cleanse the evil off his acting palate, else he'll be type-casted, or worse, some random asshat will try attack him while he's walking down the street.

 This Joff guy, the dwarf and the young girl are the only stories I am following, the rest are too much blah blah blah, I already got flamed for not following all the stories but I never read the books (never knew there were any), I fast forward past the love and most nude scenes so I am probably missing important dialogue, but I find these three stories most interesting.

The books flesh Tywin's character out a lot more, even if it might not be for the better.  Apparently his father nearly bankrupted the Lannister family, leaving Tywin a mountain of debt when he died.  Following this, his beloved wife Joanna (also his cousin, go figure) died giving birth to Tyrion.  He served quite capably as Hand of the Mad King for twenty years, during which time Aerys Targaryen took away his heir by naming him to the Kingsguard and pissed on Tywin's offer to marry Cersei to Prince Rhaegar.  Although he definitely comes across as an a-hole, he seems to be somewhat a victim of circumstance.

Wrong. It's clear that Tywin is too arrogant for his own good despite being quite intelligent. If R-Stark hadn't boned his own future, he would have easily defeated Tywin. Tyrion is a much more intelligent and cunning man by circumstance and is surely biding his time.

I think those scenes were there to show us just how far his sadism goes. Martin is one of the producers and even wrote a few episodes of the series. I'm sure every creative decision is put by him first before they execute it.

/Heh, execute...
