Peter Dinklage, who plays fan favorite Tyrion Lannister on HBO's hit series Game of Thrones, reveals the truth about his accidental faux pas with the A-list couple during the Golden Globes and explains why he doesn't buy his "DWILF" status. Hear more about his hysterical "20 Questions" interview for Playboy magazine, plus catch the rousing finish to Obama's speech in Boston today, Alexis Bledel's engagement ring, and the latest on the Weird Science remake!
There were a couple funny cameos on this weekend's new episode of Saturday Night Live, but my favorite has to be when Game of Thrones star Peter Dinklage (aka Tyrion Lannister) stopped by the "Weekend Update" desk as part of the "Drunk Uncle" skit. He played Peter Drunklage, a guy who's as disgruntled as the Drunk Uncle (and just as un-PC). Watch to see him hilariously slur his words and even shock Drunk Uncle.
Emilia Clarke has reportedly split from boyfriend Seth MacFarlane. E! News reports that the two called things off due to their "location challenge." Last night, Emilia donned a blue dress by Victoria Beckham and mingled with her former costar Jason Momoa on the red carpet at HBO's Game of Thrones premiere party in LA. Meanwhile, Lena Headey ditched the long blond locks she is famous for on the show for a brunette 'do, and stars Richard Madden, Kit Harington, and Peter Dinklage sported dapper suits for the big event. Emilia reportedly skipped the afterparty so that she could fly back to New York to prepare for her upcoming stint on Broadway in Breakfast at Tiffany's.

Peter Dinklage got down to business in the Golden Globes press room by talking about the upcoming season of Game of Thrones! See what he has to say about the success of the series and the deaths that are in store for a few of the characters.
Peter Dinklage took home yet another accolade, winning the best actor in a drama TV series Golden Globe for his work in Game of Thrones this evening. During his acceptance speech Peter revealed it's the first night he and his wife have left their newborn baby girl at home with a babysitter, so his first press room question was about checking in on the little one. From there, he gushed about the GOT writing staff and said there are some more surprises — and deaths — coming our way in season two. Check it out:
On checking in with the babysitter: Yes. Texting is everything. She’s a baby. Crying never killed anyone. Well, maybe that’s not true.
On what makes his role so important: The fellow cast and crew make it so much fun to go to work. Even the mountains of Northern Ireland would get old. The cast and crew is incredible. The character is a lot of fun.
On this proving action fantasy series can work: Yeah, it depends on the writing. We have a handful of the greatest writers in the business. They have such incredible source material. That is everything to me. Doesn’t really matter about the genre, just the great writing. Hopefully it will give that genre a little more respect.
On season two: Just like the end of the first season, you never know what's going to happen. It's a really smart narrative. I’m sad that was so surprising, writing has gotten so formulaic. You have to push the envelope and challenge people's expectations. That adds to the addiction of the show. You never know what's around the corner. We are not done killing off people and it's amazing the people they choose.
Peter Dinklage celebrated his Emmy win for best supporting actor as Tyrion on Game of Thrones, and the actor stopped by the press room to chat. Dinklage shared some insider info about the direction of the series, how he was resistant to working in TV until Game of Thrones, and why he'll probably get in trouble for thanking his pet sitter in his acceptance speech.
- On being perceived as cool: "It's from being terrified on the inside. It's all a fake show. I feel very uncool all the time. So I guess, thank you."
- On which characters we should expect to be killed off: "Everyone. If you've read the books you wouldn't be as surprised. That's the great thing about this show. The villains live and the heroes die. It's unexpected."
- On how closely the show will follow the books: "We have to change some things for television. You can't do a lot of what's in the books because we don't have the budget, or the time. But we'll keep faithful to the original story and what happens, and which characters live and die."
- On his reaction to seeing a YouTube clip of his character slapping Joffrey: "It's terrible. It's awful."
- On thanking his pet sitter in his acceptance speech: "She's an important person in my life. I mentioned her but not my manager or anyone really responsible for getting me this job. So, you know, it might be funny and witty . . . or not. It comes at a price, I think. My mom won't be really happy about that."
- On what he's learned from being on Game of Thrones: "I've learned to really love being on a TV show. I fought it for a long time. I get so excited to go to work and I get so excited to read the new scripts. I don't just skip to see my part."
