'Outlander' star auditioned for 'Game of Thrones' seven times

Outlander-Sam-Heughan.jpg

He may be the perfect Jamie Fraser, but he’s no Jaime Lannister.

Starz’ Outlander star Sam Heughan told Vulture that he auditioned for that other  premium cable fantasy drama — HBO’s Game of Thrones – a whopping seven times.

“I auditioned for Game of Thrones seven times!” the actor said. “Loads of times. I auditioned for Renly, Loras, some of the members of the Night’s Watch. And I’d always get so close! I’d be like, ‘Guys, just give me a sword!’ [Laughs.] Everyone was going in for those parts. But you know, it’s funny about those things. You’re up for so many things, and coming from those auditions, and testing on other shows, I had more experience, more experience with the process. And maybe I was more confident. And I don’t know, something about this one just felt right. This part felt different. I knew this character. I felt a connection with him.”

The Scotland-set romantic drama based on a series of novels by Diana Gabaldon series premiered last weekend to solid ratings and continues with its second episode Saturday night.

Watch Robin Williams open up about addiction on 'The Daily Show'

On Sept. 26, 2013, Robin Williams went on The Daily Show with Jon Stewart to promote The Crazy Ones in what would eventually become his last appearance on the late-night show after his death on August 11, 2014.

In the interview, Williams candidly discussed his battle with addiction, revealing details about the time he relapsed in Alaska and how he dealt with fear. Both men joked their way through a very honest discussion, with Williams quipping, “I went to rehab in wine country just to keep my options open.”

In a more serious turn, however, Williams called his sobriety a “total reboot” before delving into his experience with blackouts and more.

Chris Harrison blogs 'Bachelor in Paradise' episode 2

These days saying something is “inexplicable” is like saying something is great. The word is not only overused, it’s misused. If you want a good example of when to properly use the word “inexplicable” just watch the beginning of this week’s show. What Michelle K. did was more than a bit unusual. But what our crew member did was truly 100 percent inexplicable. The number of things Mr. Putz could have done before deciding the best option was to jump off a 25-foot balcony in the dark onto wet concrete is incalculable.

The fact that the option of jumping off a 25-foot balcony to escape detection is inexplicable in and of itself. We had a pretty clear idea about Michelle’s special relationship with our audio guy after she left the show and started making odd comments to us. At that point we figured “she’s already off the show let’s just let this go and move on.” A no harm, no foul situation. I wasn’t all that pleased she decided to take up a spot that first week, but the damage was done. READ FULL STORY
