Rodriguez/Getty Images Emilia Clarke, who you probably recognize as the dragon-taming queen Daenerys Targaryen on HBO’s Game of Thrones, has joined the young Han Solo standalone film, according to the official Star Wars website. The announcement does not make clear what role Clarke will be playing. However, she joins recent addition Donald Glover, who is set to play a young Lando Calrissian, and Alden Ehrenreich, who will be assuming the role of Han Solo years before his portrayal by Harrison Ford in the original trilogy. The film does not yet have a name. However, it’s got a director duo, Phil Lord and Christopher Miller, who both helmed huge successes like The Lego Movie and 21 Jump Street.

Play-Doh has come to the iPad. With the newly launched toy set for kids, Play-Doh Touch Shape to Life Studio, Hasbro has made a solid attempt at bringing the joy of Play-Doh to digital through an iOS app that brings kids’ creations to life. But the combination of physical play and digital is not a skill set that’s easily mastered even by top kids’ brands — just ask Disney Infinity. And while Play-Doh itself holds up as the engaging and fun toy it’s been for decades, the Play-Doh Touch app fails to amuse after only a few minutes. On paper, Play-Doh Touch sounds intriguing.

CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Carolina Panthers middle linebacker Luke Kuechly was carted off the field late in the fourth quarter of Thursday night's 23-20 win over the New Orleans Saints and was being evaluated for a concussion. Kuechly entered the league's concussion protocol, the Panthers said, after taking what appeared to be a helmet-to-helmet hit on a tackle of Saints running back Tim Hightower.

"I tried to let him know that I was gonna be praying for him," Brees said. "He is ... certainly one of the best football players I've ever seen and played against. And I hope that he's OK." Kuechly missed three games last...
It was nearly dark when our neighbor pulled into our driveway with a brace-yourself look in his eye. “He’s in rough shape,” he warned, as he got out of his pickup and walked back to open the trailer. “Rougher than I thought.” I took a look at the donkey huddled inside, then grabbed my phone to call for backup. “Scott, you’ve got to get over here. This is really bad.” “Don’t worry. I’ve seen it all,” Scott replied. My neighbor tried to lead the donkey out of the trailer but it could barely walk. Its fur was crusted with dung, turning its white belly black. In places the fur had torn away, revealing raw skin almost certainly infested with parasites. He was barrel-shaped and bloated from poor feed and his mouth was a mess, with one tooth so rotten it fell right out when touched. Worst o
