According to the Sun, Gemma Atkinson has auditioned for the lead role in CBS' Supergirl. The Sun adds that she's still waiting to hear if she's been cast, with a source telling them, "Gemma is a huge fan of comic books so this is something she'd jump at. It will make her huge Stateside."

Game of Thrones
Take this all as unsourced rumors, but Christian Today reports a rumor that production problems, and the producers' unwillingness to rush anything, mean that the fifth season's premiere will be delayed from this spring to some later date. They add that casting for new characters has been put on hold.
Also mentioned is the widespread theory that the character of Myranda will take over the plot role played by Jeyne Poole in the books, since Poole doesn't exist on the show. [Christian Today]
Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje's character is said to be a new, not-from-the-books character named Malko. Watchers on the Wall say that Malko will be a slaver in Essos and was in Croatia filming a big auction scene, in which he buys Jorah Mormont as a slave. Tyrion Lannister, who's been accompanying Jorah and doesn't want to be parted from him, exerts himself to put on such an amusing performance in front of the crowd that Malko ends up buying Tyrion, too. Needless to say, this would be a pretty notable diversion from the book. [Watches on the Wall]

Here's the synopsis for episode 1.10, "Revenge of the Rogues":
WENTWORTH MILLER AND DOMINIC PURCELL ("PRISON BREAK") TEAM UP AGAIN AS CAPTAIN COLD AND HEAT WAVE CHALLENGE THE FLASH TO AN EPIC BATTLE — Leonard Snart AKA Captain Cold (guest star Wentworth Miller) returns to Central City with a new hotheaded partner in tow – Mick Rory AKA Heat Wave (guest star Dominic Purcell). The duo plan to steal a multi-million dollar painting, but Cold has another agenda while in town – to set a trap for The Flash. Snart and Mick kidnap someone close to The Flash and threaten to kill them unless The Flash shows up for a battle of fire and ice. Barry tells Joe (Jesse L. Martin) he isn't sure he should take on Snart again after the casualties that happened the last time they fought. Meanwhile, Barry asks Dr. Wells (Tom Cavanagh), Caitlin (Danielle Panabaker) and Cisco (Carlos Valdes) to help him double his training efforts so he's ready for the Reverse Flash when he returns to Central City.
