Helen Sloan/HBO(LOS ANGELES) — The fifth season of the HBO hit Game of Thrones aired this year. How much longer will the fantasy drama remain on TV? The president of programming for HBO envisions at least a few more sessions.

Speaking Thursday at the Television Critics Association press tour in Beverly Hills, Michael Lombardo said, “Seven-seasons-and-out has never been the conversation. The question is, how much beyond the seven seasons are we going to do.”

He added that showrunners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss are “feeling like there are probably two more years after six. I would always love for them to change their minds but I think that’s what we’re looking at right now.”

Lombardo defended the violence depicted on Game of Thrones, which includes a brutal rape scene during season five. He said of the show’s producers, “I support them fully artistically.”

Lombardo also confirmed that Jon Snow, who was stabbed repeatedly in this year’s season finale, is indeed dead.

Season six is currently in production and will air in 2016.

ABC/Randy Holmes(LOS ANGELES) — Dwayne Johnson says he was disappointed to learn that fellow pro wrestler Hulk Hogan used racial slurs in a sex tape. However, he does not consider the Hulkster, whose birth name is Terry Bollea, to be a racist.

Johnson, who once wrestled Hogan at a WWE WrestleMania pay-per-view, commented on the controversy Thursday at the Television Critics Association press tour in Beverly Hills.

The man also known as “The Rock” said, “I’ve known Terry for a lot of years, and my dad helped train him in Florida in the ’70s when he was breaking into the business….I had not known the man to be racist.”

He added that he wasn’t justifying Hogan’s remarks in the sex tape, but, “We’ve all talked trash, you know, especially in private. He said what he said, and he’s paying the price.”

After Hogan’s use of slurs came to light, WWE cut ties with him and he released a statement saying, “Eight years ago I used offensive language during a conversation. It was unacceptable for me to have used that offensive language; there is no excuse for it; and I apologize for having done it.”

Johnson was at the press tour to promote his HBO series, Ballers.

John Paul Filo/CBS(NEW YORK) — Could it be that Nat Wolff was destined for stardom?

He’s written hit songs, check. He’s formed a successful band, check. He’s starred in a hit TV series, check. He’s amassed a huge social media following. And now he’s making blockbuster movies, check. And check.

From music to film, it is Wolff’s ever-evolving career that landed him a role opposite Robert De Niro in the film The Intern, set to be released in September.

Wolff told ABC News the two were on set, sitting at a table waiting to tape a scene, when the movie legend pranked him.

“He just turned to me and I was chewing a piece of gum pretty much to stay calm because I was across the desk from one of my heroes. And he said, ‘What are you going to do with that gum?’ I was like, ‘I’m probably gonna spit it out before the scene.’ And he was like, ‘You know what we used to do with gum? We used to put it under the table.’

“And I was like, ‘OK.’ And he goes, ‘You should do it. Go for it.’

“And I just took the gum and I put it under the table. And he just goes, ‘Ha, ha. I can’t believe you did that. And he goes Nancy, look he’s putting gum on the set! He’s putting gum on the set!’ So basically he was making fun of me. Also, it totally relaxed me.”

Wolff currently stars as the leading man in the new comedy-drama Paper Towns as Quentin “Q” Jacobsen. He’s a high school senior who goes on a wild adventure with his pals to find a missing girl. The film is based on the best-selling John Green novel of the same name.

“I still love you, baby. Is there anything I can do now to make it better for you?” Cait replied

“Live the happiest life you can live….That’s all I care about. That you can find the peace you’ve been looking for for so long,” was Kris’ response.

Caitlyn documents her transition in the eight-part series I Am Cait, airing Sundays on E!
