Alan Tudyk Out, Another Dude In for Zombie Movie First Platoon

17 August 2010 3:55 PM, PDT | HugAZombie | See recent HugAZombie news »

Scott Gibson, he's our man! If he can't do it... we'll have to re-cast the part again!

Remember when we told you that Alan Tudyk (Firefly, Tucker & Dale vs. Evil) was going to play the lead in the upcoming zombie film, First Platoon? Yeah, well, he's not now. Instead Scott Gibson will be playing Rock Brannigan, leader a group of zombie hunters in the apocalyptic southwest.

And who is Scott Gibson you might ask? Well, he did have a bit part in Diary of the Dead, and was in a few episodes of The Pacific, and if that doesn't ring any bells, he looks a little like this guy:

Still doesn't ring any bells? Look him up on IMdB! We've done enough already! As for the rest of the First Platoon cast, all is still well. The movie features Arron Shiver (The Book of Eli), Jennifer Skyler, Malcolm McDowell, Sid Haig , and John Kassir. »

Back in June we were the first to reveal that Firefly actor Alan Tudyk was following his star turn in Tucker and Dale vs. Evil with the lead in zombie comedy First Platoon. Well sadly we have bad news for Tudyk fans…

First Earth Films have been in touch to let us know that Scott Gibson (Haldane in the Spielberg/Hanks epic The Pacific), will be taking over the role of ‘Rock Brannigan’ – the leader of a motley team of zombie fighters in the post-apocalyptic desert southwest – replacing Alan Tudyk. From the press release:

Gibson, a well-respected actor whose previous credits include Lucky Number Slevin as well as small parts in a number of other films (including a bit in George Romero’s zombie film Diary of the Dead), starred recently as Capt. Andrew Haldane in three episodes of the Steven SpielbergTom Hanks project The Pacific to excellent critical reviews. »
