FutureStarrPedro Pascal In A Terrible Game Ad
Pedro Pascal has achieved fame as an actor through his roles on shows such as Game of Thrones, The Last of Us, and The Mandalorian. However, his journey has not been without its challenges.
At an Access Hollywood premiere for season two of The Mandalorian, 47-year-old actor was asked to read thirst tweets--those intrusive and sexually suggestive messages posted online by fans.
In Westeros, nine noble families compete to claim control of the Iron Throne. An ancient enemy returns and poses a threat to them all.
Based on George R.R Martin's novels, Game of Thrones is an iconic fantasy series adapted for television by HBO in 2011. The plot revolves around multiple powerful families as they strive to gain control and take back their lands from them.
Game of Thrones is an intricate epic, full of unexpected twists and turns that make for thrilling viewing. Parents should be aware that this series features gory battles, graphic sexual violence and nudity as well as depicting a range of morally ambiguous material.
For example, the show often portrays rape as a singular event with minimal trauma. This can be troubling for families, particularly if those affected by rape are watching the show.
Another issue is the denigration of many characters, particularly women. Not only does this harm those affected but it also encourages other misogynists to believe their actions are just as bad as those of their accusers.
Therefore, they'll feel justified and empowered to continue committing rape. This could put victims at greater risk for other sexual assaults, as well as increasing the likelihood that survivors will face physical violence.
Children and young adults are especially vulnerable to the harmful effects of sexual violence on TV, making it essential for families to discuss this with their child and consider what impact seeing rape on TV could have, especially if survivors are watching.
There were other ways the show could have conveyed this information without hurting its viewers. For instance, a more realistic portrayal of pedophilia could have been employed instead.
The series features a lot of racist and bigoted characters. It frequently portrays other groups as savages, including non-white people; furthermore, slaves are typically presented as ignorant savages who need to be taught the difference between right and wrong.
Pedro Pascal of The Last of Us fame has ventured away from video game franchises to star in an odd live-action ad for the intense mobile puzzle game Merge Mansion. This role comes as something of a shock for the actor, who's usually known for playing gruff masculine characters on TV (and The Mandalorian as Din Djarin).
Merge Mansion, if you haven't heard, is a match-three puzzle game featuring an intriguing murder mystery involving grandma. It has built up quite the lore around the game over years.
In the ad, Pedro stars as Detective Tim Rockford, the lead man on the case. Essentially, he's investigating a crime at Grandma Ursula's mansion full of knives.
At the end of November, an ad was released that teased who the mystery detective might be. A teaser image revealed a picture of a detective from behind with an evidence board in front of him. Fans have been guessing who this individual might be for some time now.
Fans had suspected that Pascal would play the detective, and they may be right. He's known for playing tough-minded father figures on TV (especially The Mandalorian) and has demonstrated his versatility with a knife.
He is an accomplished actor praised for his roles in The Last of Us and other movies like Wonder Woman 1984. Additionally, he played a bounty hunter on Star Wars: The Mandalorian, which has become hugely successful for Netflix's streaming service.
After making a name for himself on The Last of Us and The Mandalorian, Pedro Pascal is likely to continue appearing in other movies and television shows. Despite his reputation for being tough and masculine on-screen, Pedro Pascal is actually quite sensitive and caring in real life.
With The Last of Us, fans can safely assume the show will stay faithful to its PlayStation narrative. That's why The Last of Us fans should look forward to Part II, as Mazin and Druckmann will get to explore themes and characters which were clearly dramatic in the game.
Pedro Pascal stars in both The Mandalorian and The Last of Us, but he's also featured in several ad campaigns for Merge Mansion, a popular mobile game known for its over-the-top advertising campaigns that often lead to players becoming addicted to it.
This game brings together the best elements of video games and pinball to offer a unique experience. Plus, it boasts plenty of cash: In 2021 alone, the project earned an impressive $180 million in funding.
That's why it was no shock that Pascal appeared this week on The Graham Norton Show to discuss his latest project. He even brought along his adorable son Grogu (who stars in the show), for a sneak preview of what fans can look forward to from the upcoming season.
The Mandalorian, a live-action Star Wars show, brings together iconic characters and ideas from Star Wars with an entirely new cast of actors. It serves as an excellent introduction to the galaxy and its peoples, and is one of the few available live-action Star Wars shows currently available.
Though its exact connection to the new Star Wars movies remains obscure, Disney and Lucasfilm have kept many details under wraps. But one thing is certain: this show will eventually make its way into a Star Wars video game.
Recently, the series revealed that a new set of menacing droids is headed towards Tython. Referred to as Dark Troopers, these black-colored robots with red eyes are built for nothing but bad things and pose an imminent threat.
They're no ordinary droids: These menacing robots bear a striking resemblance to the evil Empire's clones from Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back. That is because Moff Gideon, the Imperial commander, sent them on Tython with orders to kidnap Baby Yoda.
Though these baddies are not part of The Mandalorian's main storyline, they will surely be something worth watching. They're an exciting addition to the show and help build tension for what lies ahead.
Denzel Washington's starpower makes The Equalizer 2 watchable despite its slow pace and mind-numbing violence. That's partly thanks to Washington's charismatic presence, exuding authority and class, but also because director Antoine Fuqua has an eye for crafting action thrillers with more substance than simply gratuitous violence.
Ultimately, the film's greatest strength lies in its characters. Washington portrays McCall, a calm figure who lives simply in an apartment complex and takes pleasure in helping his neighbors clean up graffiti on their walls. He's sort of a savior but not just any good guy - this character has intelligence and eloquence to spare; someone who understands justice and reads Ta-Nehisi Coates with passion.
But McCall also has a fierce sense of self-preservation. After his wife passes away, he takes on an ambitious mission to clean up his neighborhood's streets and eliminate any rapists, abusers or criminals that endanger those in his community. Along the way he takes on extracurricular projects too; such as coaching Miles (Ashton Sanders), a troubled teen from his complex, on life skills.
He's schooling a kid who is at risk in the city, but they also happen to be one of the most interesting. As they clean up gang graffiti around town, they're learning lessons from Ta-Nehisi Coates' book "Being Black."
Scenes like these make this film far more captivating than it might otherwise be. For instance, when McCall stops to educate Miles on cooking etiquette, it feels like an authentic addition to the screenplay rather than a cynical attempt to give him a backstory that might make sense had he been an unscrupulous villain.
As The Equalizer 2 progresses, McCall's personal quest for revenge starts to feel less genuine than it once did. When he reunites with Susan Plummer (Melissa Leo) to investigate a series of murders involving her friends and family, the focus shifts from street fighting to inside investigations - with much of the first half-hour dedicated solely to punching heads in. While it may not have followed in the original's moral code, The Equalizer 2 remains an enjoyable ride that promises to satisfy fans of its 2014 original.
