The cast of Frank Darabont’s adaption of the Rober Kirkman apocalyptic zombie drama The Walking Dead has got more brains.
Laurie Holden (The Mist, The Majestic, The Shield, Silent Hill) will be joining the AMC production in the role of Andrea who is good with a sniper rifle and hooks up with Dale in the comics..
Newcomer Steven Yeun has been added to the cast as Glenn. He and Holden join Andrew Lincoln, Jeffrey DeMunn, Sarah Wayne Callies and Jon Bernthal on the show.
Do you think Holden is the right choice for Andrea?
Come on now. Show us the zombies.

That’s right. The Frank Darabont directed TV show for AMC based on Robert Kirkman’s excellent zombie comic, The Walking Dead, has got its lead man. That was a really long sentence. I apologize.
Rick Grimes has been cast and it isn’t Johnny Lee Miller or any of the other rumoured actors. Instead they went for another UK actor in the shape of Andrew Lincoln. He was the guy in Love Actually who was in love with Kiera Knightley’s character and did the Bob Dylan thing with the writing on cards. He was also in a TV show called Teachers which was occasionally good.
I hadn’t even considered him for the role of Rick, but he must have got something for them to cast him. I just hope his stuttery jumpy performance from Love Actually isn’t how he portrays Rick.
“Andrew Lincoln, wow–what an amazing find this guy is,” said Robert Kirkman, who wrote the comic book series upon which the series is based. “Writing Rick Grimes month after month in the comic series, I had no idea he was an actual living breathing human being and yet here he is. I couldn’t be more thrilled with how this show is coming together.”
It starts shooting in June in Atlanta, with Frank Darabont (The Mist, The Shawshank Redemption) as writer, director and executive producer.
Do you think Lincoln is the right choice for Rick?
