Today's TWoP News: Friday, August 17, 2012 Update: The apocalypse is here, Bunheads has been renewed by ABC Family.

Which fate is worse, being stabbed to death by your friend or ending up with your head on a spike?

CiarĂ¡n Hinds, who played Julius Caesar on Rome (and is currently doing the world's worst Bill Clinton impression on USA's Political Animals), will join Game of Thrones as Wildling leader, Mance Rayder. If you're going to be typecast, I guess going with an established warrior/emperor isn't a bad way to go.

Apple has revealed details of their proposed set-top cable box and, of course, it sounds awesome. But maybe we should start reading those ever-changing iTunes Terms & Conditions, because Apple is well on its way to taking over the world.

American Pie star Chris Klein (you know, the one who isn't Jason Biggs or Stifler) will guest star on Raising Hope's upcoming third season. He will play Jimmy's "almost" long-lost brother, a celebrity realtor. Let's add both of those to the list of things that only exist on television.

Tina Majorino, who guest starred on True Blood this season, will have a guest spot on Grey's Anatomy. So did she lose a bet to Shonda Rimes or is she actually doing this willingly?

BET has ordered a comedy pilot starring Destiny's Child alumna Kelly Rowland. It doesn't matter how many TV shows, albums or movies she makes, she will never be able to top Beyonce.

Besides renewing The Pitch, AMC has ordered two new reality shows, one about Venice Beach and the other about taxidermy. Thanks AMC, seeing people ripped apart by zombies once a week isn't enough, we need to watch some dead animals get stuffed regularly too.
