Morning Roundup: How to Get a Kiss From John Barrowman

Wednesday has arrived. We’re sure that means something important, but at the moment, we just want to share some fun links with you to start your day out right. Here’s what we’ve been thinking about:

1.)  The ways that Westeros reflects our own history.

2.) How sets for film and television never looks quite as cool as you imagined they would when you’re standing in the middle of them.

3.) Why it never occurred to us to show up as Jack Harkness on our birthday and let John Barrowman know about it.

4.)  Glowing bubbles! From space!

From our handy “Of Interest” sidebar:

  • Apparently, if you dress up as Captain Jack Harkness and it’s your birthday and you head to the Torchwood panel, John Barrowman will kiss you. (Or maybe it’s just part of his plan to kiss someone every time he goes to Comic Con, since it was David Tennant in ’09.)
  • This upcoming animated version of The Dark Knight Returns looks like it might end up being awesome.
  • This fan’s determination led to a Jim Beam twitter campaign that got him tickets to the Star Trek Convention.
  • Take a look at some awesome pictures from the upcoming Judge Dredd film starring Karl Urban.

Stubby the Rocket is the voice and mascot of Stubby didn’t have to dress up as Jack Harkness to get a kiss from John Barrowman.
