Casting is underway for AMC’s “The Walking Dead” TV series as Jon Bernthal (“Eastwick”, Night at the Museum: Battle of the Smithsonian) was announced to be playing Grimes’ partner and friend Shane in the Frank Darabont directed pilot episode. Adding to the story, Bloody Disgusting learned exclusively that Jonny Lee Miller (Hackers, Dracula 2000, “Eli Stone”) is the frontrunner (in talks) to play “Rick Grimes”, a police officer who leads a group of zombie survivors in search of a safe place to live during the apocalypse. As mentioned earlier, shooting begins this May on the pilot with hopes of it turning into an ongoing series. Those of you who are fans of AMC’s “Mad Men” know exactly how good this could be.
