'The Walking Dead': Steven Yeun and Lauren Cohan promise 'more loving, less shoving' for Glenn and Maggie

Their relationship was a shining beacon of hope in an otherwise depressing-as-hell zombie apocalypse. But then Maggie was forced to strip by the Governor, and then Glenn totally acted like a jerk about it. Love on the rocks! But by the end of season 3 of AMC’s The Walking Dead, Glenn gave Maggie a ring and the lovebirds were singing once again. So how are things when the action picks up in season 4 (which premieres Oct. 13)? Stars Steven Yeun and Lauren Cohan talked about the couple’s future while taking a break from their insanely hot EW photo shoot. “If we could envision a smooth ride for Maggie and Glenn this season, I think it would involve less walkers and a honeymoon,” says Cohan. “But mostly I think they’re just glad to still be alive and have each other. There was a pact they made at the end of season 3 that is going to be really interesting this season.”

Leave it to Yeun to more succinctly sum things up as “more loving, less shoving.” But speaking of that honeymoon, who would even be able to marry them? “As soon as Herschel gets ordained online he’s gonna be the one to do it,” laughs Cohan. To see more from our chat with Yeun and Cohan (who periodically bursts out into hysterics), as well as exclusive behind-the-scenes footage from our EW photo soot, just click on the video player below.

Vincent Martella of 'Phineas and Ferb' to appear on 'The Walking Dead'

Disney Channel animation fans may have recognized a familiar face — or voice, perhaps — when AMC debuted some new footage from season 4 of The Walking Dead last week. Standing there in the prison yard talking to Carl was none other than Vincent Martella, best known as the voice of Phineas Flynn on the hit series Phineas and Ferb. (Martella also played Chris’ best friend, Greg Wuliger, on Everybody Hates Chris.)

But who is Martella playing on the zombie drama? Could it be zombie Phineas?!? Nope. It turns out his character is named Patrick and is among the various survivors that have been brought into the prison to help build the new community. “He’s right around Carl’s age,” explains Martella. “He’s a little bit older. He’s one of the new people who Carl gets a little closer with. Carl hasn’t really had anybody his age, so now you kind of get to see Carl’s relationship with people his own age and that’s one of the things that Patrick is bringing to the show.” READ FULL STORY

'Walking Dead' spin-off series is officially in the works

AMC has announced that it is developing a companion series for The Walking Dead that is targeted to make it on air in 2015. Current Walking Dead executive producers Robert Kirkman (who also creatred the comic book on which the show is based), Gale Anne Hurd and David Alpert will also work on the new series.

“After 10 years of writing the comic book series and being so close to the debut of our fourth, and in my opinion, best season of the TV series, I couldn’t be more thrilled about getting the chance to create a new corner of The Walking Dead universe,” said Kirkman in an announcement by AMC, who will also produce the series.. “The opportunity to make a show that isn’t tethered by the events of the comic book, and is truly a blank page, has set my creativity racing.” READ FULL STORY

'The Walking Dead': Lawrence Gilliard Jr. on how he landed the part of Bob Stookey

Lawrence Gilliard Jr. was not supposed to be cast on The Walking Dead. And the reason was simple: another former The Wire alum — Chad Coleman, who played Cutty — was already on the show as Tyreese. And for new showrunner Scott M. Gimple, one Wire alum was enough. But thanks to two pesky casting directors and two killer auditions by the actor himself (who played doomed drug dealer D’Angelo Barksdale on The Wire), Gilliard indeed landed the part of new character Bob Stookey, a former army medic who in the original Walking Dead comic book happens to be an older, white guy. While waiting out a rain delay on set during filming of season 4, Gilliard told the story of his audition process and how he was able to change Gimple’s mind. READ FULL STORY

Andrew Lincoln explains why he does not watch 'The Walking Dead'

The Walking Dead has set all sorts of ratings records since it debuted on AMC three years ago, but there is one man who isn’t watching — the show’s star, Andrew Lincoln. While many actors on TV programs can’t wait to see how the final product is all put together for the small screen, Lincoln makes it a point to not watch his own show. While I was down on the set for filming of season 4 (which premieres Oct. 13) I asked the man who plays Rick Grimes why he refuses to watch, and here’s what he told me… READ FULL STORY

David Tennant talks filming 'Doctor Who' 50th anniversary show: 'It was everything I hoped'

On those rare occasions when current and past stars of Doctor Who filmed episodes together the air has sometimes turned a tad chilly. But “Tenth Doctor” David Tennant says there were no such problems when, earlier this year, he and his TARDIS successor Matt Smith shot this November’s special 50th anniversary show.

'The Walking Dead': Watch an exclusive deleted scene with Lori as a zombie!

Okay, let’s be honest: Rick Grimes went a little nuts last season on The Walking Dead after his wife Lori died. He started hearing things and then seeing things — things that weren’t actually there. But, as a new exclusive deleted scene from the upcoming Walking Dead season 3 DVD/Blu-ray set shows, it could have been even worse. Much worse.

Remember back in episode 10 (“Home”) when Rick had himself a tender moment with a vision of his former wife in a white dress out on a bridge past the prison yard? Well, a new deleted scene shows how the scene was originally shot — and it seems that tender moment actually turned quite terrifying. After making out for a bit — because who doesn’t love making out with hallucinations from time to time — Rick pulls back to see that his beautiful wife is now a significantly less kissable zombie version of his beautiful wife. That’s right, Sarah Wayne Callies got zombified! READ FULL STORY

'The Walking Dead': Danai Gurira on why Michonne's new horse is like a 'man cave'

We’ve heard about the mysterious new threat and the herds of zombies awaiting both us and the survivors when The Walking Dead returns Oct. 13 on AMC, but one of the things that has fans most jacked for season 4 is the sight of Michonne looking even more badass while riding her new horse named Flame. “One of the most compelling images is Michonne finding a new and possibly a lot more reliable type of transportation,” says executive producer Gale Anne Hurd. “With gas at a premium, with the fact that vehicles break down, I think we would return to the days of horseback riding and you can graze them as you go in a place like Georgia. You don’t have to carry food for them. They feed themselves, so to speak. It goes along with the new approach this season of sustainability. With a horse, you can go through the woods. You can get around obstacles. You can’t do that in a vehicle. If a tree falls and blocks the road, you can’t go through the forest. You’re not going to make it through. It’s actually much more of a useful choice. Not only that, but Michonne looks so badass on it.”

New showrunner Scott M. Gimple concurs and adds, “I’ll tell you this—Danai can ride that horse. She does an amazing job. Initially I was a little afraid. I think she was a little confident about it, but I was pretty amazed.” Well, it turns out the process of Danai Gurira learning how to ride that horse is a story in itself. And the actress told me that story in her trailer while waiting out a rain delay on set of The Walking Dead. Here’s what she said: READ FULL STORY

'The Walking Dead' cast members talk about the season 3 finale scene you DIDN'T see

When I spoke to Dallas Roberts — who played Milton on The Walking Dead — after his character’s untimely demise in the season 3 finale, the actor revealed that the scenes between him and Laurie Holden’s Andrea that ultimately made it into the episode were actually reshoots done several months later (and after showrunner Glen Mazarra announced he was leaving the show). Here’s what Roberts told me then about how the scenes were originally shot:

“Originally, the beating scene that started the episode wasn’t there. Originally, I showed up and was led into the room where Andrea was…and then [The Governor] shot me in the stomach, completely unexpectedly.… There was a lot more of Milton trying to open the door and him trying to free her from the chains. And then there was a section where he was going to wrap the chain around the neck and try to choke her to death before he turned so she wouldn’t have to deal with Walker Milton, or Biter Milton, as it were.…They both desperately wanted for that to work but at that point he had bled out so much. So he pulls and pulls and pulls but he doesn’t get it done and he falls against the wall and is passed out. And he never comes back from that until he turns into a walker…And then at the end of that, it was just Tyreese and someone else who found her. Rick and Daryl and Michonne weren’t there. So it was essentially the same idea, except you saw me taking chunks out of Laurie Holden in that version.”

I spoke with Roberts again on Entertainment Weekly Radio (SiriusXM, channel 105) recently and he added another tidbit to the tale — that it was, in fact, Tyreese that ended up killing Zombie Milton in the original version, not Andrea. To get an even clearer picture of how the original scene went down, while in Atlanta for filming on season 4 of The Walking Dead I spoke with two other principal players in the scene — Chad Coleman, who plays Tyreese, and Sonequa Martin-Green who plays Sasha (or the “someone else” that Roberts refers to above). Here’s what they told me: READ FULL STORY
