Nonso Anozie on playing the Bible's Samson: Ebony.com spoke to the British-Nigerian actor, who has received publicity because of his Game of Thrones role, about his next endeavors: working with Viola Davis and Harrison Ford in this fall's Ender's Game, and playing Samson in the History Channel's forthcoming biblical series.

Georgia denies clemency for mentally disabled death row inmate: "I am horrified and outraged by the board's decision to deny clemency for Warren Hill," said attorney Brian Kammer in a statement. "This shameful decision violates Georgia's and our nation's moral values and renders meaningless state and federal constitutional protections against wrongful execution of persons with mental retardation."

Watch this: Tamron Hall on fight for equality: The NBC anchor spoke exclusively to BET about the hurdles women continue to face.

Needles found in Delta Airlines sandwiches: Four turkey sandwiches found on separate Delta Air Lines flights from Amsterdam to the United States contained what appeared to be sewing needles, the airline said on Monday.

Aresenio Hall wants Blue Ivy to be his first guest: We can see where the host is going with this one. Jay-Z and Beyoncé's daughter may not talk yet, but she'd definitely bring some ratings to his newly revived show.
