A question asked frequently by Futurama fans at Comic-Con and other conventions is: Will Zoidberg ever find love? Turns out, that very question will be explored in an upcoming episode. EW has learned that the disgusting decapodian will make a romantic connection with… wait for it… it’s pretty shocking… oh, right, you already read the headline… Game of Thrones star Emilia Clarke!
Instead of playing a determined dragon queen, though, Clarke is guest starring on the animated 31st-century-set comedy as a flower stand owner who, ironically enough, was born with no sense of smell. “She falls in love with Dr. Zoidberg — the smelliest character on Earth in the future — but she can’t smell him, so it’s a match made in heaven,” explains series executive producer David X. Cohen. “However, being a doctor, he has the opportunity to perform a nose transplant and give her a sense of smell, which would destroy their romance, so it’s a big dilemma.”
Clarke’s episode is slated to air as the second-to-last episode of the series.
On the heels of yesterday’s news that James Franco will direct and star in an adaptation of Andre Dubus III’s The Garden of Last Days, The Hollywood Reporter brings word that “Game of Thrones” star Emilia Clarke has signed on to star as well in the leading role of April.
The book, published in 2008, is officially described as follows:
One early September night in Florida, a stripper brings her daughter to work. April’s usual babysitter, Jean, has had a panic attack that has landed her in the hospital. April doesn’t really know anyone else, so she decides it’s best to have her three-year-old daughter close by, watching children’s videos in the office while she works.
April works at the Puma Club for Men. And tonight she has an unusual client, a foreigner both remote and too personal, and free with his money. Lots of it, all cash. His name is Bassam. Meanwhile, another man, AJ, has been thrown out of the club for holding hands with his favorite stripper, and he’s drunk and angry and lonely.
From these explosive elements comes a relentless, raw, searing, passionate, page-turning narrative, a big-hearted and painful novel about sex and parenthood and honor and masculinity. Set in the seamy underside of American life at the moment before the world changed, it juxtaposes lust for domination with hunger for connection, sexual violence with family love. It seizes the reader by the throat with the same psychological tension, depth, and realism that characterized Andre Dubus III’s best-selling “House of Sand and Fog” — and an even greater sense of the dark and anguished places in the human heart.
Hanna Weg, who provides the screenplay to The Garden of Last Days, will also produce alongside Gerard Butler, Danielle Robinson and Alan Siegel.
