The Walking Dead Recap: Heartsick and Tired

15 February 2015 7:00 PM, PST | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

If you were to turn to the dictionary entry for “dead tired,” the illustration accompanying the definition would probably look a lot like the survivors on The Walking Dead did this week. They were exhausted, hungry, dehydrated and, worst of all, demoralized. But then, something happened that promised to change everything. Wanna know what that something was? Keep reading…

The Emmy-nominated actress (Orange Is the New Black) has landed a role in the CBS drama pilot Doubt, where she’ll play the “fierce, funny” Cameron Wirth, “a transgender Ivy League-educated attorney who’s as competitive as she is compassionate.” Because Cox’s character has “experienced injustice first hand,” she’ll be inclined to “fight all the harder for her clients.”

Extant Adds Transparent Actress as 'Morally Ambiguous' Robot

10 February 2015 1:05 PM, PST | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

Might Extant‘s Humanichs program have some not-quite-above-board competition?

That’s one conclusion you can draw from the CBS series’ latest casting: Kiersey Clemons (Transparent) will recur in Season 2 as a lifelike robot who’s “a bit morally ambiguous,” TVLine has learned exclusively.

The Walking Dead’s David Morrissey joins Extant

10 February 2015 12:28 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

The Governor himself, David Morrissey from The Walking Dead, will join Halle Berry in CBS’ Extant

David Morrissey is an actor with a whole lot of geek credibility, having won over legions of Doctor Who fans as the eponymous red herring in one of David Tennant’s final few adventures, The Next Doctor, before taking on the popular role of The Governor in The Walking Dead.

Now, he’s signed up for some science fiction fare once more, by joining Halle Berry in CBS’ astronaut drama Extant. Unfortunately, he isn’t given another enigmatic name beginning with ‘the’ this time around. Instead, he will play General Tobias Shepherd, head of the global security commission. If you like, you can call him The General. We think we will.

The General is described as “a celebrated general [naturally], charming, political, known and respected for making the tough calls of wartime, and standing by »

David Morrissey, late of “The Walking Dead,” has joined the cast of CBS’ “Extant” in a recurring role for the summer drama’s sophomore season.

The Walking Dead season 5B: what can we expect?

9 February 2015 10:26 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

The Walking Dead season 5 returned to the UK last night. What might be in store for Rick and co. over the next episodes? Spoilers...

Warning: contains spoilers for The Walking Dead seasons one to five and very mild comics spoilers.

Last night saw the UK return of The Walking Dead season five, meaning that the next seven Monday nights are going to be fraught with bleakness, grief, tension, truly disgusting body horror and… remind me why we love The Walking Dead again?

Oh yeah, that’s right. We love The Walking Dead for its characters, stunning special effects, visceral violence and the reassuring sense that whatever is going wrong with our own lives, it’ll never be as bad as whatever it is that Rick, Carol, Michonne and the gang are having to deal with.

The first episode back, What Happened And What’s Going On, played a characteristic game with audience expectations. »

‘The Walking Dead': Chad Coleman Talks Tyreese’s Fate and What He Learned From ‘The Wire’

9 February 2015 12:06 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Spoiler Warning: Do not read on unless you’ve seen “The Walking Dead” season five, episode nine, titled “What Happened and What’s Going On.”

Taking on the role of moral compass on “The Walking Dead” is not a wise move if you want to stay alive. From Dale to Andrea to Hershel and now Tyreese, the characters who make the most noise about holding onto their humanity in the face of an increasingly hopeless zombie apocalypse never seem to stick around for long.

Variety spoke with Tyreese himself, actor Chad L. Coleman, about how he discovered the character’s tragic fate, what he learned about TV deaths from working on HBO’s “The Wire,” the funniest part of shooting his exit episode and the time Chris Hardwick almost spoiled the fatal twist on “Talking Dead.”

When did you find out this would be the end for Tyreese?

‘The Walking Dead’ Postmortem: Executive Producer Greg Nicotero Talks Latest Death, Unexpected Returns

8 February 2015 7:00 PM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Spoiler Warning: Do not read on unless you’ve seen “The Walking Dead” season five, episode nine, titled “What Happened and What’s Going On.”

No one can accuse “The Walking Dead” of holding on to characters too long. It was just two months ago that fans said goodbye to Beth Greene (Emily Kinney) in the midseason finale. In tonight’s midseason premiere, they had to do the same for Tyreese (Chad L. Coleman), who joined the show back in season three and leaves behind his sister, Sasha (Sonequa Martin-Green).

It was a powerful, potentially divisive, installment, and Variety asked executive producer and the episode’s director Greg Nicotero to talk us through the decision to lose Tyreese at this point, what it was like for Coleman on set, working with some very special guest stars and what lies ahead for the survivors after these brutal back-to-back losses.

Why Tyreese and why now? »

Support grows for ‘under threat’ Curzon Soho

5 January 2015 8:51 AM, PST | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

The London venue may be demolished to make way for a Crossrail ticket hall.

A petition in support of London’s Curzon Soho is gathering pace following reports that the arthouse cinema may face demolition.

The petition, hosted by 38 Degrees, generated close to 6,500 signatures in 24 hours after it was revealed that the cinema may be knocked down to make way for the £25bn Crossrail 2 development.

Among those to sign the petition are actors Mark Gatiss, David Morrissey, MyAnna Buring and Alice Lowe to journalist Jon Ronson and documentary maker Jeanie Finlay.

Transport for London (TfL) said the Curzon was needed to build a ticket hall and entrance into the new Crossrail 2 station. Plans show that nearby Soho Square would be cordoned off and used as a builders’ depot during works which could take 10 years to complete.

Organisers plan to email the petition to Crossrail developers and the Mayor of London as well as Curzon management.
