What the Red Priestess foresees: Carice van Houten talks about the dark magic of Melisandre on 'Game of Thrones'

Carice van Houten knows that her "Game of Thrones" character Melisandre can be scary. She claims to serve a god known as the Lord of Light, but she's done an awful lot of dark things in his name. Among them: killing Renly Baratheon (Gethin Anthony) with "blood magic," abandoning Stannis Baratheon (Stephen Dillane) – the horse she backed in the race for the Iron Throne – mid-battle, and burning many people alive at the stake including Stannis' daughter, Shireen (Kerry Ingram).

Why 'SNL' probably won't ask Mario Cantone to play Scaramucci

With Anthony Scaramucci replacing Sean Spicer as the new face of White House spin, who will "Saturday Night Live" bring on to play him? There's more anticipation than usual, coming on the heels of Melissa McCarthy's splashy impersonation of Spicer last season – a performance that, for some viewers, came with the bonus of irking the president himself. The Season 43 premiere is still six to eight weeks off, but no matter: Twitter was speculating about possible Scaramuccis almost immediately.
