Did you know Chris Farley was the original choice to voice Shrek?

Well, it's true. Unfortunately, the comic actor died after finishing most of the dialogue for the first film, leaving what work he did lost in Hollywood's basement.

That is until a short video of Farley's acting over Shrek storyboards leaked its way onto Reddit Aug. 5.

The video shows a less wacky, more down-to-earth character, which just makes the whole thing so much sadder.

Speaking to Yahoo News, Farley's younger brother Kevin Farley explained how the Shrek character had to change.

Originally the Shrek character was a little bit more like Chris, like a humble, bumbling innocent guy. I understand why [they replaced him]. hey probably wanted to make Shrek 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, so… The studio needed to do what they needed to do. It was a bad time, bad timing… a tragedy. Mike did a great job with Shrek. He knocked it out of the park.

Chris Farley died of a drug overdose in 1997. He's had something of a revival in the past few months, with the release of I Am Chris Farley, a documentary about his life.

People haven't forgotten his comedic talents either, using his past hilarious work to spice up newer movies likeMission Impossible: Rogue Nation.

Just about everyone was excited for the return of Game of Thrones last weekend, but HBO has a hard time relaxing in its success of the mega-hit show.

When the Twitter-developed, live streaming Periscope app released March 26 it may have seemed to most of us like a way to show off your smoking. A few enterprising individuals thought it might serve a better purpose showing off the return to Westeros.

Well, the BBC reported this week that HBO sent out many 'take down' notices to those viewers who wanted to share their experience. The premium cable giant also woefully shook their heavy head (bedecked with jeweled pity crows, no doubt) over the lack of control they had of their content on Periscope.

"In general, we feel developers should have tools which proactively prevent mass copyright infringement from occurring on their apps and not be solely reliant upon notifications," HBO said in a statement.

This came only a few days after the first four episodes of the upcoming season leaked online.

But even with these gaps in their distribution, HBO is far, far from a sinking ship. This is more akin to someone drinking a dribble glass on a cruise ship.
