The Walking Dead Adds This Mad Men Actor In A Mystery Role

fb share tweet share

Ross MarquandEveryone on AMC’s hit zombie drama The Walking Dead needs to be careful, as damn near anyone can be killed off at damn near any time. You’ll be walking along, thinking what a lovely day it is, and out of nowhere, you’re walker food. Should have checked behind that tree. New people are especially at risk, and many of them are lucky to even get a name—season three at the prison was a free for all when it came to killing off glorified extras. That said, when the fifth season returns for its second half next month, there are going to be some new faces. Maybe they’ll stick around for a while, like Tara, maybe they’ll last half an episode. However it works out, we now know that the cast has added a new member in the person of Ross Marquand.

Marquand is going to be most recognizable to fans of another popular AMC drama, Mad Men, which I’ve never watched, but I’m told features him playing a version of Paul Newman. That must mean he’s pretty good at impressions. He also lends his voice to Phineas and Ferb, so you may recognize him from there. Right now there’s no word on what character he’ll play in the undead adventure, but there are theories floating around.

The Walking Dead is in the middle of the annual break they take around the holidays, but we’re now less than a month away from the return of season 5. The last eight episodes promise to be all kinds of crazy and chaotic for your favorite group of zombie apocalypse survivors. And as Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln) says in this grim new trailer, just released by AMC, surviving is all that matters.

It’s actually surviving together that is what really matters, and though all the key players are present and accounted for, and alive, they’re none to pleased about their present predicament in this latest promo. Just a heads up, we’ll be discussing The Walking Dead season 5, so if you’re not caught up, seriously consider reading something else (check out the latest Zombies vs. Robots news, that’s a good time) because we’ll be getting spoilery from here on out.

The Walking Dead Might Get Banned In China Next Year Because Of This

fb share tweet share

the walking deadI’m not sure how many of our readers, if any, are Chinese citizens, but there’s a good chance they won’t be catching up one of the most popular series on television, The Walking Dead, five months from now. And The Walking Dead is only the tip of the gore-soaked iceberg, as the Chinese government is cracking down on online streaming sites, both legal and illegal.

Last month, TV viewers all over the country were shocked and disappointed to find that Chinese authorities shut down two of the nation’s most used file-sharing sites, meaning access to hundreds of U.S. TV episodes (along with their Chinese subtitles) were completely vanquished. Moving forward, the government has made it clear that, starting in April, they’re tasking broadcast regulators with only approving less mature content to go through their legal streaming sites, such as Sohu, a site where over 103 million views have been tabulated for Netflix’s flagship political drama House of Cards. That show, with its sex-for-power plot points and negative talk about China’s communism, will definitely be on the cutting block. It seems like even the words “cutting block” will be removed.

The Walking Dead Could Bring Back This Unexpected Character

fb share tweet share

The Walking DeadAs massively popular as The Walking Dead is, AMC’s zombie extravaganza only offers a very limited view of this particular world. With the new companion series, Cobalt, coming down the pipeline, one of the things we’re looking forward to is seeing something besides one small group of survivors wandering endlessly through the Georgia wilderness. Reportedly set in a different time—starting at the beginning of the zombie outbreak rather than jumping into the middle—many have speculated that we could encounter earlier versions of the some of the characters, or perhaps even see a few that died. It’s starting to look like they’re bringing back one character, but it probably isn’t who you expect.

You might remember Morales, played by Juan G. Pareja, from the six-episode first season of The Walking Dead. He and his family were a part of the group that Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln) joins up with after he wakes up from a coma in a hospital and discovers the world has been overrun by walkers. While we haven’t seen him in a while, Morales, at least as far as we know, is not dead. When the group decides to go to the CDC, a move Robert Kirkman says he regrets, Morales and his family strike out on their own, heading instead to Birmingham, Alabama to look for other members of their clan. Not being dead definitely makes it easier to bring someone back and provides more options as to how.
