Television Distribution Kit Harington told The Telegraph that he is done playing heroic male roles like Jon Snow because "emotionally, men have a problem."

    Sean Connery helped redefine movie stardom thanks to his role as James Bond, an impossibly suave super-spy with a taste for martinis that were shaken, not stirred.
