Michiel Huisman, who plays Daario Naharis on Game of Thrones and Ellis Jones in the film Age of Adaline, says he won't be posing nude for Playgirl anytime soon, after being asked about an offer publicized by the magazine.
Said Huisman to HuffPost Live:
They never reached me. Maybe my team was like, ‘No way' [before they could ask me]. Listen, I’m very flattered by the attention that some of that has gotten but no, I’m not going to do that. Of course not."

Ian McKellen stars in the new film Mr. Holmes, an adaptation of Mitch Cullin’s novel A Slight Trick of the Mind, as the legendary detective himself, Sherlock Holmes.
However, this new iteration of the famous sleuth is quite different than Robert Downey Jr. and Benedict Cumberbatch’s recent robust take on the character. Ian McKellen plays a retired, elderly Holmes facing the trials and tribulations of old age as the brilliant detective’s mind begins to deteriorate, but the intuitive detective proves he still has some wit left at the age of 93.

Once a trailer for a highly anticipated movie drops, remixes are guaranteed to follow. In the vein of the Lego rebuilt trailer, a retro-style remix of Superman Vs. Batman: Dawn of Justice featuring late actor Christopher Reeve, in his iconic role as Superman, and Adam West’s iconic role as Batman hit the web not long after the new teaser dropped.
The remixed trailer combines audio from the new trailer with stock footage from Reeve’s Superman movies and West’s Batman television show. Watch the remixed trailer, which is surprisingly good until West’s iconic scene where he comically runs through a crowd while holding a bomb over his head appears, AFTER THE JUMP…
Sony’s infamous e-mail leak continues to be the pop cultural gift that keeps on giving. A series of e-mails between executives from Sony Pictures and Columbia Pictures reveal that Lady Gaga was once in late stage talks to voice Betty Boop in Simon Cowell’s upcoming reimagining of the iconic character. As recently as last fall Gaga’s name was attached the project to both star and contribute music to the movie’s soundtrack. Over the course of a series of e-mails Lauren Abrahams, VP of production for Columbia, and one-time Sony co-chairwoman Amy Pascal express concern over Gaga’s involvement in the film.
"It feels weirdly sexualized yet childlike (esp with Gaga) and not sure really who it’s for in a big mainstream way,” Abrahams wrote."Neither of us thinks we should do it, and we’ve also run the brand by marketing who aren’t inclined either."
Doug Belgrad, president of the Motion Picture Group, was also included on the e-mail chain and expressed a similar lack of faith in the project’s viability at the time insisting that he wasn’t all to bullish on the idea. The correspondence between Belgrad, Pascal, and Abrahams took place last fall. Since then Sony’s rumored to have backed away fully from producing the Betty Boop reboot and Gaga is no longer attached to the project.
