<p><b>Why:</b> British actor Clive Mantle, best known stateside for playing Greatjon Umber on HBO's Game of Thrones, was brutally attacked by two men outside a hotel early Sunday morning in Newcastle, England. The incident occurred after the six-foot, five-inch actor asked fellow guests at a Travelodge to keep the noise down. The two rambunctious guests disagreed with Mantle and, rather than quieting down, decided instead to bite the actor's ear off. As the New York Daily News notes, Mantle's character on Game of Thrones also lost key body parts in a biting attack; Greatjon Umber had two fingers bitten off by a direwolf, which isn't quite the same thing as a drunk Scotsman but close enough.[ <a href="http://gawker.com/5992521/game-of-thrones-actors-ear-bitten-off-during-brutal-attack" target="_blank"> Gawker </a> ] <br>
