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.

Well it is about time. We now have some casting news for Frank Darabont’s small screen adaptation of the amazing Robert Kirkman zombie comic, The Walking Dead
The first to be cast isn’t main character Rick Grimes. Instead it is Rick’s cop partner and best friend Shane. He looks after Rick’s wife and son while Rick catches up with thm.
So who will be playing Shane? “The Ghost Writer” co-star Jon Bernthal that’s who according the THR. He was also Al Capone in Night at the Museum 2 and is Sgt. Manuel Rodriguez in The Pacific.
The Walking Dead is based on Robert Kirkman’s popular comic book. It chronicles the months and years following a zombie apocalypse. Frank Darabont is the project’s writer, director, and exec producer with Anne Hurd and David Alpert also exec producing.
I imagine we’ll be hearing more casting news over the next few days.
Can’t wait. Like Fearless Leader Phil I’ve been a fan of the comic for a while so I can’t wait to see who else will star in this show.
If you haven’t read any of them yet you can pick up the first volume of the collected comic book below. Well worth it.
