The Seahawks have made the surprising decision to cut starting defensive tackle Tom Johnson, just one game into his stint with the team. The 34-year-old Johnson started against the Broncos in last week’s season-opening loss, and he has already received a $ 950,000 signing bonus and a $ 15,000 roster bonus. Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports that the Seahawks just want to free up a roster spot to bolster another position this week and plan to re-sign Johnson next week.

Don’t Expect YouTube to Drop Big Bucks for the Next Game of Thrones

At the 2018 Television Critics Association summer press tour, YouTube’s global head of original programming, Susanne Daniels, detailed her financial strategy in regards to original programming and how it will differ from the company’s competitors, like Amazon and Netflix.

“You’re probably not gonna see us spend that level of money for a Game of Thrones or a comparable series like Westworld,” Daniels said. “But I’ve always been a believer that you can make great shows for less and it’s not the episodic spend that can make something great.”

It’s no secret that streaming giants Netflix and Amazon are spending large sums of money to strengthen their footholds in the digital video landscape. Netflix will reportedly outspend every studio in Hollywood this year, while Amazon is dropping a whopping $ 1 billion on five seasons of their newly acquired Lord of the Rings franchise. Even Apple has been moving aggressively into scripted programming, with big development deals for an Amazing Stories reboot from Steven Spielberg, a thriller from M. Night Shyamalan, an adaptation of Isaac Asimov’s Foundation novels, and a futuristic sci-fi drama starring Jason Momoa from the creator of Peaky Blinders, among others.

Game of Thrones Actress Voices We Happy Few Main Character

Game of Thrones actress Charlotte Hope will voice one of the main characters in We Happy Few.

On today’s episode of Inside Xbox, Compulsion Games’ founder Guillaume Provost revealed the actress is voicing Sally Boyle, one of the three playable characters in the survival adventure game set in a drug-addled dystopia.

Charlotte Hope is an English actress best known for her reoccurring role as Myranda, the sadistic girlfriend of Ramsay Bolton in seasons 3 – 6 of HBO’s hit drama series.

“Most of our cast is from England,” Provost said during the Inside Xbox interview. “We tried casting some actors in Canada … when we were tight on budget and didn’t have a lot of money. And what we realized is that some of the actors can do British accents quite convincingly, but it’s very difficult to have a convincing performance at the same time.”

The story of Kratos, a Spartan demigod and his quest for vengeance against the Greek gods who used him as a puppet in their twisted games, was always about making the player feel bigger, badder and more powerful through gory violence, massive set pieces and, yes, the occasional virtual sex act for the purpose of taking down the gods of Olympus.

David Lynch Teaches Typing Game Is Now Available

While a new season of Twin Peaks may be up in the air, fans of David Lynch now have an online parody game to get their fix of the director.

Rhino Stew Productions released a new, free game that allows people to learn homerow “with America’s favorite avant garde director,” according to the game’s trailer (seen below). However, to be clear, David Lynch Teaches Typing is not affiliated with the Blue Velvet director.

Throughout the game, a caricature of David Lynch — complete with his imitable voice and catchphrases — guides players through simple typing exercises, such as resting your left index finger on the F key and your right index finger on the J key.

Future Man executive producer Seth Rogen has a lot to say about his and Evan Goldberg’s new action comedy series coming to Hulu. The series about janitor and world-ranked gamer Josh Futturman (Josh Hutcherson) being recruited by warriors from the future to help save the world has legs in action and comedy, but also in science fiction and a little bit of drama.

“When I watch it, it’s completely unlike anything I’ve seen on television before. I hope people think that’s a good thing. Or they’ll just be like, ‘What the f**k did these people do?'”

Nailing the tone has been tricky for Rogen. He told IGN an important thing for this series is how it needs to have a lot of stakes to it while being funny. Future Man is a comedy, yes, but it has what Rogen calls a “real” plot, meaning it’s serialized. “We’re not the first people to have done it
