The game begins again.

Winter is here, but Game of Thrones Season 3 is still a few months off. Fortunately, HBO has rewarded our patience with a plethora of new photos, including this shot of incoming cast member CiarĂ¡n Hinds as the King Beyond the Wall, Mance Rayder. How many hours until March 31 again?

Pre-weekend casting news! Brooke Shields will be joining the new season of Army Wives; Sarah Chalke will pop up on Grey's Anatomy (a medical show that's actually funnier -- unintentionally, of course -- than Scrubs); and Alphas actor John Pyper-Ferguson has landed a new gig on Once Upon a Time after his previous show's cancellation.

Even after The Office closes up shop, Craig Robinson and Greg Daniels will still be in business together. The duo's single-camera comedy series, which stars Robinson as a musician who takes his love of music into the classroom, has received a pilot order from NBC. Not wanting to be left out of the pilot-ordering game, Fox has greenlit a pilot for the John Wells-backed assassin-themed drama series Boomerang.

Get ready to teach your parents and grandparents how to navigate the iTunes store. Revived soaps All My Children and One Life to Live will re-appear on iTunes and Hulu starting this spring.

Since you'd probably enjoy to end your Friday with a hearty laugh, here's who will be competing on ABC's celebrity diving reality show, newly rechristened as Splash. Louie Anderson, Nicole Eggert, Kendra Wilson, Chuy Bravo and Katherine Webb, currently the most famous name amongst all these folks. At least the network knows that Brent Musburger will definitely be watching.
