"Game of Thrones" actress Emilia Clarke looks every bit a queen in a red Alexander McQueen gown on the cover of Harper's Bazaar's June/July issue. What grains of knowledge did we pick up from the accompanying interview? That the Mother of Dragons has a big crush on both Channing Tatum and his wife, to start. {Harper's Bazaar}

Selma Blair is slated to play Kardashian momager Kris Jenner — the other Mother of Dragons — in FX's upcoming series "American Crime Story: The People v. O.J. Simpson." (The late Robert Kardashian, if you'll recall, was one of Simpson's lawyers.) David Schwimmer, John Travolta, Cuba Gooding Jr. and Sarah Paulson are also involved with the project, so you know it's going to be good. {Entertainment Weekly}

President Obama gave a speech at Nike headquarters on Friday advocating the Trans-Pacific Partnership agreement, which would increase trade and investment among its constituent countries. If the TPP is ratified, Nike CEO Mark Parker said the retailer would begin making shoes in the U.S. again — the first time in three decades. {Washington Post}
