[TV] New “The Walking Dead” Casting; German Billboard Ads Rot

AMC’s “The Walking Dead” is adding another character to its ranks. After adding Michael Cudlitz, Josh McDermitt and Christian Serratos as iconic comic characters Abraham, Eugene and Rosita, respectively, the zombie drama will add another major player to its ranks. “Greek” alum Andrew J. West, pictured above, has boarded the series based on Robert Kirkman’s comics, The Hollywood Reporter has learned.

Character details are being kept under wraps, but West will appear in the second half of The Walking Dead’s fourth season and play Gareth, a character who does not appear in the long-running Image/Skybound series on which the AMC show is based.

In addition, the site also reports that Pay-TV network Fox Germany has launched an ambush campaign targeting female fans of “The Walking Dead,” using electronic billboards in Berlin subway stations that feature models who morph into zombies.

The campaign, developed by Berlin agency Saint Elmo’s exclusively for Fox Germany, appears to be a standard billboard advertising a makeup remover (the “Good Night Cleansing Program”) but as passerbys approach the ad, the cosmetics model morphs into a ghoulish zombie while the ad shifts to feature the “Walking Dead” logo and the tagline “Season Four First on Fox.”
