Kendrick Lamar recorded, I think, 100,000 guest verses in 2013. This year’s been a little slower, with K-Dot cooking up the answer to good kid, m.A.A.d city — but today’s different! We’ve got brand-new Kendrick on a Flying Lotus track, and brand-new Kendrick on a remix of Jeezy’s “Holy Ghost.” Now go push play. (And click ahead to the one-minute mark on this first one, if you want to get things moving.)

Hodor and Bran apparently won’t be on Game of Thrones next season. “We have a season off and we have a year’s hiatus, solely because I imagine our storyline is up to the end of the books,” says Kristian Nairn.

Boardwalk Empire is already promising an anti-Sopranos ending.

Netflix reportedly paid $1.75 million per episode for the streaming rights to Fox’s Gotham. (Recall that they just bought The Blacklist for $2 mill/episode.)

This is Allison Williams as NBC’s Peter Pan.

Russell Brand is turning the last five years of his life into BRAND the Film.

Trailer: One of Pacino’s two Venice films, Barry Levinson’s adaptation of Philip Roth’s The Humbling.

Jemaine Clement says HBO isn’t bringing back Flight of the Conchords, but actually a new thing instead.

Ciara and Future are trying to work it out for the sake of Baby Future.

And CBS’s Thursday Night Football will feature Jay Z’s “Run This Town” as its intro.
