Doing what I do for a living, I find it hard to believe anyone doesn't know what a meme is. But I guess Kit Harington is too busy with cool acting roles to care. Find out about his latest after the cut!
You know nothing Jon SnowIt's been 17 hours since I first saw this promo pic of Game of Thrones' Kit Harington in the disaster pic Pompeii, and I'm still giggling about it. It's like Jon Snow's "Everything Sucks" face and then bam! Abs! This is what he wears under his voluminous Night's Watch cloak, and you can't convince me otherwise. The outfit reminds me of Starz' Spartacus, where everyone, male and female, went around half-naked all the time, even when it was snowing. Heavy cloak. Bare chest/bikini top. Miniskirt. Let's fight some Romans! Another Pompeii/Spartacus similarity: Both of them tell the story of a slave-turned-gladiator. Spartacus is a step ahead because it has Lucy Lawless, though.

You know nothing Jon SnowHmmm… so the history and Game of Thrones nerd corners of my brain are happy about this, but the film nerd part… not so much. That's because Pompeii is being directed by Paul W.S. Anderson, and The Hollywood Reporter says he's "making a period adventure movie and taking a Titanic approach, anchoring it with a love story." Oy.
The above is a picture of the dining area at Vetutius Placidus' thermopolium (or snack bar). The ancient eating establishment was buried under a massive wave of scalding ash during the eruption of Pompeii in the year 79. The Independent says:
The thermopolium, one of the best preserved sites in Pompeii, has been closed to the public for years in order to protect it from further damage. But following months of detailed excavation and preservation work, all visitors will soon be able to go inside and get an idea of a typical ancient Roman lunch establishment.Is anyone else really hungry?
