TV: First Look at Andrew Lincoln as Rick Grimes in ‘The Walking Dead’!

Bloody Disgusting has got your first ever look at Andrew Lincoln as father, police officer, zombie survivor “Rick Grimes” in AMC TV’s The Walking Dead. Robert Kirkman, creator/writer of the Image comic and executive producer on the series says: “Writing this book for the past seven years I’ve gotten very close to the character of Rick. Andrew Lincoln embodies every aspect of the character that fans know and love. After seeing this photo I don’t think that there will be a doubt in anyone’s mind that he’s perfect for the role.” The project is set among a group of zombie survivors of an apocalypse who are led by a police officer, Rick Grimes, in search of a safe place to live. Frank Darabont directs the pilot episode premiering this October. Jon Bernthal, Andrew Lincoln, Jeffrey DeMunn, Sarah Wayne Callies, Laurie Holden, Steven Yeun, Michael Rooker, Chandler Riggs all star.
We’re told the following image takes place when Rick is en route to Atlanta and his car breaks down. It’s just before he gets on a horse and rides it into downtown Atlanta.
