Here’s what’s being talked about in pop culture:

• In a battle of sequels, the raunchy “22 Jump Street” won the weekend box-office race with $60 million. The family-friendly “How to Train Your Dragon 2” came in second with $50 million. [Box Office Mojo]

• Legendary radio host Casey Kasem, who counted down “America’s Top 40” for 34 years, died at the age of 82. Kasem was also a cartoon voice actor, who portrayed Shaggy on “Scooby-Doo, Where Are You?” and Robin on “SuperFriends.” [Los Angeles Times]

• So “Game of Thrones” ended its fourth season as bloodily as the rest of them, and the show’s makers are preparing for season five. (This interview is loaded with spoilers, so don’t click unless you watched the finale.) [The Hollywood Reporter]
