-J.J. Abrams' latest TV show, "Revolution," has begun location shooting in Wilmington, North Carolina. Set fifteen years in the future, "Revolution" is a dystopian sci-fi drama, with the rural NC location evoking a once civilized landscape that has been taken over by nature. Series creator Eric Kripke states: “Just in the episode 102 after the pilot alone, we found an entire abandoned train and train tracks all overgrown with vines. We found a cement factory that was the same. Everyone is tripping over themselves excited about the potential of what Wilmington will offer for the show.”

-Brit veteran actor Ciaran Hinds (also known stateside as Caesar on HBO's "Rome") has been cast in a major role for Season 3 of "Game of Thrones." He will play the King Beyond the Wall, Mance Rayder. Here's a description of Mance's character:

Mance was a wildling child taken by the Night's Watch and raised as one of them. He was a loyal member of the Night's Watch for most of his life until he suffered an injury while ranging, and was healed by a wildling woman. While he recuperated, she mended his torn cloak with swatches of red fabric. Upon returning to the Wall, the Night's Watch commanders required him to replace his mended cloak with one of uniform black. This infringement of freedom caused him to abandon the Night's Watch and live with the wildlings in the way he wished, eventually becoming their leader.

- A fabulously cut new trailer for season two of Showtime's "Homeland" has debuted, prior to the show's premiere September 30. Check it out below:
