TGL Round-Up: HBO Hackers Leak Actors Emails and Phone Numbers, David Letterman Inks Netflix Deal, King of the Hill Revival

dl

The hacker that breached security at HBO and leaked the fourth episode of the hit television show allegedly leaked the phone numbers and emails of the cast online.

Lena Headey, Emilia Clarke and Peter Dinklage are amongst the stars whose details ended up circulating online.

“Mr. Smith,” the hacker or hackers claimed that they make $12 million to $15 million a year through hacking-related blackmail in a video message directly aimed at HBO CEO Richard Plepler, and demanded that HBO pay them “our six-month salary in bitcoin” within three days.


David Letterman is returning to the world of television with a new Netflix show.

The six-episode untitled series will feature in-depth interviews as well as topics outside of the studio.

“I feel excited and lucky to be working on this project for Netflix. Here’s what I have learned, if you retire to spend more time with your family, check with your family first. Thanks for watching, drive safely,” Letterman said.

The new David Letterman Show will premiere in 2018.


King of the Hill may be returning to Fox.

The network has had “preliminary conversations” with series creators Mike Judge and Greg Daniels about reviving the animated television show, Fox Chairman and CEO Dana Walden confirmed to reporters Tuesday at the Television Critics Association’s summer press tour.

King of the Hill originally ran on Fox from January 12, 1997 to September 13, 2009.

Blind Item Revealed

This B-list television actress is on a scandalously sexy TV show and after the first season, she was known for getting nude on television. She was unhappy with the reputation and refused to do nudity unless she felt it was absolutely necessary to the scene. After her ‘mainstream movie career’ flopped, however, she’s suddenly much more open to nudity… as you’ll be seeing on the next episode of the show this weekend in a very heated moment.

Who is she?

Emilia Clarke of Game of Thrones

Blind Posting: 13/05/2016

As seen on the latest episode of HBO’s Game of Thrones, Emilia Clarke appeared nude for the first time in several years.  I won’t go too deep into the scene for fear of spoilers, but it was a VERY heated moment indeed.

Blind Item Revealed

The stars of this box office disappointment are shell shocked by what they’re recently been told by the studio. “No sequels. No spin-offs. No other appearances. It’s over.” They thought that despite the disappointment they’d still be back for at least another appearance as their characters.

Who is our cast?

What is the movie?

The Terminator Series with Arnold Schwarzenegger, Emilia Clarke and Jai Courtney.

Paramount has finally dropped the bombshell that the planned Terminator sequel has been cancelled, leaving the sequel off their schedule and replacing it with Baywatch.

It’s been a long time coming, the stars were told back in October and although I did hear that they considered rebooting the series yet again with a slightly different cast, Paramount have no interest in investing in Terminator yet again.

BLIND POSTING: October 2nd 2015.
