'Game of Thrones' has a new series regular, and more news to note

Today's talk you might've missed:

  • Love Nathalie Emmanuel? Good. She's been upgraded to a series regular for "Game of Thrones'" fifth season. [TVLine]
  • "The Hunger Games" franchise was able to complete most of its work with Philip Seymour Hoffman before his death, but there's one crucial scene that remains uncompleted. Word on the street is that producers might try to solve the problem with some digital magic. [THR]
  • You know Paul Bettany's voice from the "Iron Man" movies (he voices Tony Starks' "Jarvis"), but now you'll get to see his face in "Avengers: Age of Ultron." The actor's been cast as The Vision. [Variety]
  • A new Missy Elliott album is coming, but she's not telling you when - and it's not because she just really likes the element of surprise. "When I create something, it's gotta be special," she said. "I don't just throw out microwave records." [Yahoo!]
  • So apparently, Leonardo DiCaprio - the one-time ring leader of that profanely named posse - has never done drugs. [LAT]
  • Channing Tatum is feeling fappy lately, which makes him just that much more adorable. (For those of you with your minds ... elsewhere, "fappy" stands for "fat and happy.")

Leno hits a high note with Kim K., Oprah and more

Thursday night may have been Jay Leno's second time leaving "The Tonight Show," but it was more heartwarming than the first.

It was also more impressive in ratings. According to NBC, Leno's final "Tonight Show" episode had its highest overnight ratings since March 2009, when President Obama became the first sitting president to appear on a late-night talk show. When we start talking overall viewers, Leno pulled in the highest number he's had since 1998 with 14.6 million watching.

Lips and (Sean) Lennon team up on 'Letterman'

In late 1974, John Lennon made his last on-stage appearance at New York's Madison Square Garden to pay off a bet he'd made with Elton John about "Whatever Gets You Through the Night" hitting No. 1.

Elton was right - it did - so Lennon showed up to play three songs with the Elton John Band: "Whatever Gets You Through the Night," "I Saw Her Standing There" and "Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds," a Beatles song that Elton had just covered (and would also hit No. 1).
