The actor will play a governor of Louisiana. His name is “Truman Burrell and the character is described as a good ol’ boy politician who has a major beef with vampires ever since his wife ran off with one, leaving him as a single father to their only daughter. Politically savvy and perhaps overly ambitious, Truman tends to let his personal aspirations overshadow his humanity.“
True Blood returns next summer. »

Tell me if you’ve heard this one before.
AMC’s The Walking Dead is coming back for another season, it’s fourth in fact, but it’s doing so without current showrunner and co-executive producer Glen Mazzara. The ratings this fall secured a big victory for The Walking Dead, as the first series on cable to win the 18-49 demographic in a fall TV season. Renewing a fourth season was inevitable and well-deserved. However Mazzara’s departure marks the second time a showrunner is leaving the show with no explanation other than the vague response in a prepared statement by AMC that “both parties mutually decided to part ways.” Mazzara responded in his own statement that he will remain on the show through the conclusion of Season 3 and afterwards, “it is time to move on.”

For many viewers of AMC’s hit drama The Walking Dead, they might not care about who’s running the show, as long as they get zombies being killed in creative fashion. For some, the personal drama between the characters is distracting from the zombie violence. But for others, like me, I find it troubling when a hit series like The Walking Dead starts going through showrunners like waiters in a restaurant. I mean, this is a show that is not only breaking ratings for cable television, it’s also regularly beating everything on broadcast TV as well.
In a dual announcement, AMC announced that the show will return for a fourth season, but showrunner Glen Mazzara –who replaced creator/showrunner Frank Darabont halfway through season two- will depart. Much like Darabont’s departure, Mazzara is leaving for creative and a “difference of opinion.”
My time as showrunner on The Walking Dead »
Another high-level showrunner departure for an AMC series. AMC just announced that it has renewed flagship drama The Walking Dead for a fourth season. But Glen Mazzara, who had served as showrunner following the abrupt departure of creator/original showrunner Frank Darabont early into the second season, is leaving. Speculations about Mazzara’s future on the show started when AMC didn’t follow its regular routine of giving The Walking Dead an early pickup despite the record-breaking ratings performance of the show’s recent fall portion of Season 3. There had been rumors that Mazzara was not happy on the show and may follow the slew of other showrunners who have departed AMC series – The Walking Dead‘s Frank Darabont, whom Mazzara succeeded, Rubicon creator/exec producer Jason Horwitch, who exited during production on its first and only season, and most recently Hell On Wheels showrunner John Shiban, who left after two seasons. »

The cast of the HBO series "True Blood" continues to expand as another actor has been cast in a recurring role. Read on for the who, what, where, when, and blood type. Then ask yourself why. Why do we keep on watching?
TVLine reports that Arliss Howard (pictured; "Rubicon," "Medium") is joining the forthcoming sixth season in the HBO series regular role of Louisiana Governor Creighton Burrell. The character is described as a good ol’ boy politician who has a major beef with vampires ever since his wife ran off with one, leaving him as a single father to their only daughter. Politically savvy and perhaps overly ambitious, Creighton tends to let his personal aspirations overshadow his humanity.

What do "Argo," "Looper" and "Chronicle" all have in common? Besides the fact that they were among this year's stand-out movies, all three films were once lonely scripts floating around on the famed Black List, an annual compilation of the most favored unproduced screenplays. Based on the suggestions of over 290 execs, the List requires that scripts have at least six mentions to join the ranks, and is often a predictor of what we'll see next in the line-up of forthcoming films.
From hot sports drama to sweeping biopics, 2012's List brings in the usual suspects, along with a few unexpected gems we actually want to see get made. Here, we voice off on our top picks and potential casting choices—in other words, behold: our shameless "Make this movie, please!" memo for Hollywood.

"Iron Man 3" will have three villains at the center of its story. There will be Ben Kingsley's The Mandarin, Guy Pearce's Aldrich Killian and James Badge Dale's Eric Savin -- aka "Coldblood" -- but Dale doesn't think that's too many bad guys for one movie.
This isn't the only big budget movie Dale has coming up. In addition to playing Eric Savin, he's also got a role in "World War Z" and will portray Dan Reid in the upcoming "The Lone Ranger." Dale had previously been best known for his work on TV shows like "Rubicon" and "The Pacific," so he said that this type of filmmaking is all new to him.

Boardwalk Empire Episode 03.11 ‘Two Imposters’
Written by: Howard Korder
Directed by: Allen Coulter
Airs Sunday 9.00pm Est on HBO
This show being the second-to-last of the season, here is the form I expected it to take:
a lengthy recap of previous salient events; lots of talking as said events are recapped; a couple of big set pieces to remind us of Boardwalk Empire’s excellent production values; and in between the slow and careful positioning of characters ready for the long awaited show down between Nucky and Gyp Rosetti.
Nothing special, in other words. Convention dictates that, like chefs serving a gourmet meal, the writers don’t allow the appetizers to overshadow the entrees. The action is saved for the end and the show prior to the finale contains the ground work for the action.
To hell with convention. Far from being an exercise in preparation, this episode hit the ground running. »

Dallas Roberts has his work cut out for him in the third season of The Walking Dead between working for the governor, sipping on tea, and conducting weird experiments on the undead. Is the seemingly lone scientist type in this post apocalyptic world working for mans best interests or has he got some other sinister plan up his sleeve? Originally from Houston, Roberts attended Juilliard and currently lives in New York. He was nominated for a Drama Desk award for his work in the Off-Broadway play "Nocturne". He has appeared in movies such as Joshua and 3:10 to Yuma and on television shows like "Rubicon" and "The Good Wife.". How did you get the role of Milton in the Walking Dead? Yeah, I am an actor and I audition for a ton of stuff. It was another one that we auditioned for and it was a known »
The secret behind the success of "The Walking Dead" isn't giving fan service (like the infamous "phone call" or the introduction of the Governor's daughter) but building onto the fans' expectations. So much in this third season is comparatively different to the graphic novel on which the series is based that the anticipation of Rick (Andrew Lincoln) and company discovering the enclave of Woodbury is actually less compelling than the town's new-for-tv residents -- like the sadistic, one-armed redneck biker Merle Dixon (Michael Rooker) and, more importantly, the show's very own aspiring Dr. Frankenstein, Milton (Dallas Roberts).

Our sister site ShockTillYouDrop.com has posted an interview with Dallas Roberts, who plays Milton on The Walking Dead . His character is one of the Governor's right hand men. He functions as a scientist in the Woodbury community and studies the 'walkers.' In the interview, Roberts dishes on the creative process of the series along with how he prepared for the role. Here's an excerpt: I was actually a fan of the comic book before I got the job. I was on another show on AMC called "Rubicon" and my character there, Miles, was into comic books, so I thought, "Oh, let's read some comic books and see what's going on." One of the ones that stuck with me was "The Walking Dead," so I actually had an intimate knowledge of the story and then once the »
Update 1:40 Pm: AMC just issued a statement confirming that Hell On Wheels showrunner John Shiban has left and that the series’ third season renewal is now contingent on hiring a new showrunner approved by the network. In a statement, Shiban called the departure “a difficult decision.” Read both statements below my original post: Exclusive 11:50 Am: There is some behind-the-scenes drama on AMC‘s Hell On Wheels. The Western drama on Monday was given a 10-episode third-season renewal, but it was picked up without its creators/executive producers Joe and Tony Gayton, who left their day-to-day duties on the show when their contract was not renewed. (They may consult.) At the time, AMC said John Shiban would continue as executive producer/showrunner. Now I hear that veteran showrunner Shiban has informed the network that he won’t be coming back after two years on the show. As a result, »

David Morrissey was not a household name when he was cast to play the TV version of the most despicable villain in The Walking Dead comics, The Governor, but he will be. It remains to be seen the depth at which this incarnation of the character will go, but after one episode, we got a glimpse into what will be one of the most talked about characters this television season. Morrissey displayed a a variety of endearing and frightening qualities of leader, capable of providing great things for his people but also someone who isn’t afraid of looking for trouble–gunning down a convoy of the National Guard–all in the name of “improving” his community.
Comic book purists who thought Morrissey didn’t fit the mold since he didn’t have the pug nose, long wavy locks, or macho mustache covering his upper lip. Some saw John Hawkes »

Season 3, Episode 4: “New Car Smell”
Written by Meredith Stiem
Directed by Jeremy Podeswa
Season 3, Episode 5: “Q&A”
Written by Henry Bromell
Directed by Lesli Linka Glatter
Airs Sundays at 10pm Et on Showtime.
The final moments of “New Car Smell” once again offer a scene that more timid showrunners would reserve for the show’s distant future, and the episode seems to tease an “out” for these events often enough that the writers must be aware of exactly how to manipulate expectation for maximum impact. When Carrie and Congressman Brody first re-encounter each other, their chemistry is immediately reawakened, making it seem as though we’re headed for Torrid Mathison/Brody Affair 2.0. Thankfully, that’s not at all the case, and instead, sensing that Brody has sorted out precisely what’s up, she opts to end the deception and get Brody arrested for his crimes. »

The problems that have plagued World War Z, the big ass zombie blockbuster film based on the big ass blockbuster book by Max Brooks, have been highly publicized. Perhaps that’s because we horror nerds love to magnify everything we hear about properties we love. Or perhaps it’s because All-World actor and celebrity Brad Pitt is involved as a producer and star of the show. Either that or because David Andrews is in it (he’s in Justified and soon to be Revolution; get with it, folks).
Whatever the reason, the production for World War Z have been widely acknowledged and pontificated on the interwebs over the summer. First, they brought in Lost and Prometheus writer Damon Lindelof to help with the third act of the script. He saw way more problems than that, and couldn’t be bothered with it, so he handed it off to buddy Drew Goddard, »

We have more than a month to wait until Season 3 of The Walking Dead premieres on AMC, so all Twd news is especially welcome here and now. Today we bring you the new poster for the season, and it comes complete with a handy dandy new “tagline” that indicates to us that Season 3 ain’t gonna be pretty. It is, however, gonna be pretty badass.
Now for the new character. The Powers That Be on AMC‘s version of The Walking Dead have often strayed from the path of the comic series upon which it is based, both because some aspects wouldn’t translate well and because they want to allow the comics readers to be surprised by some of the storylines, to make it fresh.
We now know of one more way that they are changing things up in the upcoming Season 3. EW has reported some great casting news »

In the world of horror movies, one thing is for sure... the last thing on any hunter's mind is nailing himself a buck at a Deer Crossing. Nope, in our world it's people that are in the scope of some maniacal madman who kills for sport. Read on!
Deer Crossing is a horror-drama from the mind of Christian Jude Grillo, who wrote, produced, and directed the feature film. It stars Christopher Mann (Booley), Laura L. Cottrel (The Sickness), Ernie Hudson (Ghostbusters), Doug Bradley (Hellraiser franchise), Carmela Hayslett (Roxsy Tyler’s Carnival of Horrors), Jennifer Butler (Rubicon), and Jeanette Branch.
The film follows “Detective Derrick Stanswood (Christopher Mann), who’s called in personally by a successful doctor on a case that was shelved eight years ago about the disappearance of Maggy Chancellor (Laura Lynn Cottrel) and her son, Cole.”
Look for it on DVD September 25th from Osiris Entertainment.
