'Game of Thrones' is finally up to date with the book series 'A Song of Ice and Fire.' The fifth season of the HBO fantasy drama ended at the same scene that the fifth book concludes, with Jon Snow's blacking out after being betrayed by the Night's Watch.
Although 'Game of Thrones' showrunners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss have previously confirmed that they already know how the novels will proceed, the pressure is on for George R.R. Martin to publish the sixth book 'The Winds of Winter.'
Comedian Conan O'Brien recently announced on his TBS late night show that he decided to hack George R.R. Martin's home security cameras to get a glimpse of the author working on the novel. He shared the footage with the 'Conan' audience.
The footage shows Martin blowing bubbles, playing in his pool, rolling around in grass and even jumping on a trampoline in nothing but his trademark hat. At one point, Conan remarked, "Get the book written, there will be no toy cars."
The fake security camera footage actually features comedian Nick Mundy dressed as George R.R. Martin. Mundy admitted to the gag on Twitter.
Nick Mundy recently made news when Dwayne Johnson officiated his surprise wedding. Mundy is a huge fan of The Rock and had previously asked his idol to be his best man at his wedding. Johnson instead got ordained and officiated at Mundy's wedding.
'The Winds of Winter' is set for release in April 2016. There were rumors that the book was already finished when 'Game of Thrones' director Jack Bender announced that he has already read an advance copy during his Reddit AMA.
However, the rumors were shot down as fans realized Bender was referring to scripts for 'Game of Thrones' and not the new 'A Song of Ice and Fire' book.
