The Walking Dead Wants The Strain Actor For Fan-Favorite Role

fb share tweet share

the strainAMC’s The Walking Dead is going to head in a pretty dark direction in Season 5…not that the last four years were filled with sunshine, lollipops and rainbows. But fans of Robert Kirkman’s comic series are keenly aware that this is all child’s play compared to the abominably heinous Negan, a villain that we sadly probably won’t be running into this season. But we now know that they’re trying to cast the part, and it all comes from an actor on The Strain who didn’t quite realize the bombshell he’d let loose.

Speaking on a conference call (via Nuke the Fridge), actor Kevin Durand was asked about other shows that fans want to see him in, and he presumably stunned everyone by saying he was at least one of AMC’s choices for the role of the sadistic villain. He said, “I’ve had a lot of people with The Walking Dead talk to me, mentioned that they see me for a character named ‘Negan,’ but I haven’t read the comic.”

Good day, streamers. Is everybody ready to watch Nicolas Cage get Left Behind this week? Or would you rather watch Ben Affleck search for his wife, or possibly watch a possessed doll haunt people? Maybe you’d be interested in having a possessed doll haunt Ben Affleck. We’ll see what we can do. In the meantime, check out the five most appealing sci-fi streaming options of the past few weeks.

the walking deadThe Walking Dead: Season 4 (Netflix Instant)
Given The Walking Dead‘s penchant for abusing audiences with an extended midseason hiatus, it’s nice to have the entire fourth season readily available for uninterrupted binging. Relive the Governor’s non-glory days, Carl’s rage-fueled days, Daryl and Beth’s drunken single day, and many more. Season 4 featured some of the most gruesome and shocking deaths that the series has ever delivered — with Carol at the center of some, no less — and it’s only supposed to get worse once Season 5 begins. Just what exactly is Terminus, and why does everything smell like meat around there? The Walking Dead returns to AMC on Sunday, October 12, so get to watching. Or just wait until AMC runs its next marathon.

The Walking Dead: Where’s Beth And What’s The Deal With Her And Daryl?

fb share tweet share

The Walking DeadWhen season 4 of AMC’s hit zombie drama The Walking Dead wrapped up, the core group was still split up, but you at least know where they are and what they’re up to, in a general sense anyway. There’s one glaring exception, however, Beth (Emily Kinney). You have no idea where she is, who she’s with, or if she’s even alive to be honest, but now we’re getting a better idea.

There may be some SPOILERS for season 4 of The Walking Dead past this point, so, unless you don’t care about such things, you might want to sit this one out. But if not, or if you’re caught up, by all means, read on.

Sci-Fi Happy Meals That Are Too Good To Be True

fb share tweet share

BladeRunnerHow come adults don’t get meals that come with prizes? Some of my favorite rituals from childhood involved being elbow-deep in a box of cereal, feeling around for the prize, or dumping all the food out of my Happy Meal just so I could get to the toy. So how come we don’t get a grown-up equivalent? After-dinner mints and fortune cookies don’t count, damn it. I want to be able to finish my snazzy, five-star meal, and then have the waiter bring me out a Rocket Raccoon action figure on a silver platter. Sadly, I will probably never live in such a world, but at least pretending is a little bit easier thanks to these faux Happy Meals that were ripped right out of my Happy Place.

These awesome fake Happy Meals are the work of Los Angeles digital artist Newt Clements. (He mostly comes out at night. Mostly.) His Pinterest is full of a wide variety of crazy projects, but his Happy Meals collection is one of the most extensive. He’s got over 100 of the things by my count, and they’re all incredibly well done. Designing Happy Meal boxes to tie into Doctor Who, Aliens, or Escape from New York would have been worthy of a story in and of itself, but Clements goes the extra mile by imagining what toys might be included with each meal as well. And I don’t care what bounty McDonald’s has on offer, there’s no way it’s cooler than an action figure of Firefly’s River standing atop a pile of Reaver corpses.

The Walking Dead Spinoff Has Actual Characters And Another Andrea

fb share tweet share

the-walking-dead-infected-season-four-11The zombie-loving public’s attention has, rightfully so, been focused on the return of the mega-popular The Walking Dead. But while that series has been gradually creeping towards the debut of season 5, AMC has been quietly working behind the scenes to create a spinoff show, one that people have been calling “companion” series lately, though I don’t know what the difference is, or if there is one. Details have been sparse, at least until now.

TV Line has some details on the core characters, as well as the time and place where the series takes place. And there’s even another Andrea in this series. Honestly, as long as it’s not the same Andrea from the main series, who dies on season 3 and is one of the worst characters on TV ever (that may be hyperbole, to a degree, but I’ve hated few fictional creations as much as I hated her, and it’s extra frustrating because the character is so damn good in Robert Kirkman’s comics, where she is still alive by the way) I’m okay with it.

The Walking Dead Season 5 Adds A Cast Member And Reads Lips Poorly

Tyler James WilliamsSeason 5 of AMC’s hit zombie drama The Walking Dead is rapidly approaching. We’re just over two weeks away from the new episodes, and while we don’t know a ton about the mechanics of the plot, it is, by all appearances, going to be a sprawling story that expands the horizons of our intrepid band of survivors. To that end, the his series has added a new cast member, and just in case you can’t wait two weeks, there’s another installment of the Bad Lip Reading videos, this time tackling season 4.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Tyler James Williams, who starred in the Chris Rock-produced Everybody Hates Chris and Matthew Perry’s short-lived NBC sitcom Go On, has joined the ever-growing, ever-shrinking cast. There’s not a lot known about his role or his character, but the actor has already been spotted on the Atlanta area set.
