Danai Gurira of 'The Walking Dead' on the 'ferocity' of Michonne in season 5

walking-dead-danai-gurira

Let’s be honest: Michonne’s timing kind of sucks. Just when the loner with the samurai sword starts opening herself up to others and trusting people, she ends up locked in a train car by people who may or may not want to eat her. So, it’s not exactly kumbaya time, is what we’re getting at.

Keeping all that in mind, what kind of Michonne can we expect to see in season 5 (which kicks off Oct. 12 on AMC)? Actress Danai Gurira says that there will be an internal struggle as Michonne will feel pulled in two different directions. “She does yearn for something more stable in life,” Gurira told us while taking a break from posing for her new EW Walking Dead cover. “She really believes that Carl needs something more stable than where they are and what they have been experiencing, but also she’s very committed to what has to be done. She’s a woman who does what has to be done, so that involves a lot of ferocity.” READ FULL STORY

'The Walking Dead' cast reveals how they would like their characters to die

The-Walking-Dead-Season-5-trailer.jpg

Shane. Dale. Lori. Merle. Andrea… Need we go on? No character on The Walking Dead is ever safe. That much has been proven. But how would the still-living cast members like to see their characters go if and when their time comes? Well, there’s only one way to find out. Ask them. So I did. Here’s how many of The Walking Dead actors see their final moments on the show.

[NOTE & SPOILER ALERT: Some of these characters have already died in the comic book on which the show is based. A few of the actors may reference that, so if you do not want any clues as to who has died in the comic, then stop reading right now. But also keep in mind that the TV version often changes things dramatically. For instance, Hershel’s beheading at the prison actually happened to a different character in the comic that is still alive and well on the TV show. So things don’t always match up.] Okay, spoiler alert over. Now, let’s find out how the cast would like their various demises to go down. Also note that Norman Reedus kind of cheats on his answer. CHEATER! READ FULL STORY

Watch the 'Walking Dead' cast prank Andrew Lincoln

The Walking Dead cast is like one big happy family. But that doesn’t mean these folks are above having some fun at each other’s expense. Just take our Entertainment Weekly Walking Dead cover shoot, for example. During a hot summer day on the Terminus set — where the shoot took place — we asked the actors to tell us something about Andrew Lincoln that he doesn’t want anyone to know. We weren’t sure if they would answer that. After all, Andrew Lincoln is a swell guy! Everyone loves Andrew Lincoln! Would they really betray his trust like that? It turns out they were all too happy to comply.

Check out Norman Reedus, Lauren Cohan, Steven Yeun, and Danai Gurira totally selling their costar out. Is what they say true, or just all made up in an effort to further embarrass the man who plays Rick Grimes? Watch the video below and judge for yourself.

'The Walking Dead' first look: Seth Gilliam as Father Gabriel Stokes

Executive producers Scott M. Gimple and Robert Kirkman told Entertainment Weekly that we will be meeting several new characters in season five of The Walking Dead—some from the comic book and some not. Well, we’ve got your exclusive first look at one such newbie right here, and it is a big one: Father Gabriel Stokes. Introduced in issue #61, in the comic Father Gabriel offers the survivors shelter in his church as he attempts to atone for past sins. Will his introduction on the TV show mirror that of the comic, or could Gabriel somehow be connected to the folks at Terminus? Viewers will find out after season five debuts on Oct. 12. But in addition to this first look photo, we also spoke to the man who will be playing Father Gabriel, Seth Gilliam, about how he landed the part, whether he read the source material, and what it’s been like to join the show.

EW: Why don’t you start by telling me about the casting process and how you ended up on this show as Father Gabriel.
SETH GILLIAM: I actually did not realize I was reading for the role of Father Gabriel during the casting process. The sides were for a school guidance counselor named Michael, who had an issue with a couple of his students. I had not seen the show before I was cast on the show. So I just thought, Okay, I guess they’ve discovered some guy who’s holed up at a school or something like that and was carrying around this horrible exchange that he had with his students.

'The Walking Dead': Watch an exclusive NSFW deleted scene with Hershel, Michonne, and the Governor

Walking-Dead-deleted-scene.jpg

Bad things happened to poor Hershel Greene last season on The Walking Dead, culminating in a standoff at the prison. But what if we could see more of Hershel in the fateful hours leading up to that encounter? Well, now we can in this exclusive deleted scene from the “Too Far Gone” episode that can be found on The Walking Dead: The Complete Fourth Season DVD and Blu-ray sets being released on Aug. 26. (The sets also include other deleted scenes, featurettes, and commentary tracks, while the Blu-ray contains two extended episodes. There’s even a limited edition Tree Walker Blu-ray set that looks especially rad.)

In this particular scene, we see a bound Hershel and Michonne being held prisoner by the Governor and watched over by his hotheaded lackey Mitch, who refers to the duo as “a one-legged Santa Claus and a rasta bitch.” Then Mitch moves on from rude to crude, discussing various sexual acts with particularly salty language that…well, I’m not going to repeat it, but you can watch for yourself. You can also see how such talk results in repercussions from both Michonne and the Governor. Who’s the bitch now, Mitch?!?

'The Walking Dead': Robert Kirkman says 'I got a pretty good idea when all of them are dying'

The-Walking-Dead-Season-5-trailer-02.jpg

The cast members of The Walking Dead live in almost constant fear that their character could be killed off at any time. Why, even when folks like Norman Reedus get calls from the producers hiring them for other jobs they still think they are getting bad news. Perhaps making them even more paranoid about their livelihood is the news that The Walking Dead creator already has the cast on death watch, complete with a timetable of all of their demises.

When Robert Kirkman stopped by Entertainment Weekly Radio (SiriusXM, Channel 105) while out at Comic Con, Jessica Shaw and I asked him about how tough it is to say goodbye to someone when they are killed off the show. “It’s kinda worse than that,” says Kirkman. “Because I got a pretty good idea when all of them are dying. To a certain extent, if we follow the comic, like possibly even more than [showrunner] Scott [Gimple] knows.”

Kirkman then began pointing at imaginary bodies around the room to illustrate his point. “So I’m always like…two years, three years, six months, two weeks, oh, God this is awful! It’s really rough. Doing the comic, it was fine because it was just lines on a paper. Whatever. We’re killing that guy. Cool. But the show, it sucks because we all work together, we hang out, and have a great time. But, you know, the story’s gotta get done and people gots to die, as I like to say. It’s pretty rough.”

Even worse, Kirkman and Gimple cannot tell the castmembers in question when their number is up in case plans change last minute. “You can’t tell ’em,” says Kirkman. “Because we change our minds all the time. And that’s the other really bad thing about it. We can’t really give them that much warning because there’s always a chance that we’ll get into actually writing the scripts after we plan things out and we’re like, ‘Nope, that character’s living.’ Which has happened many times. So we don’t want to have many false news giving situations.”

Andrew Lincoln says 'The Walking Dead' 'won't be without its share of death this season'

The-Walking-Dead-Season-5-trailer-05.jpg

Lest you fret that everyone’s favorite post-apocalyptic zombie drama was going to mellow with age in its fifth season, Andrew Lincoln has some news for you. When discussing The Walking Dead’s penchant for killing off characters during a visit to Entertainment Weekly Radio (SiriusXM, channel 105) at Comic-Con, Lincoln told us “It is an inevitable part of this show. It’s one of the great things, I think, that you have real jeopardy for favorite characters. It won’t be without its share of death this season.” Uh-oh, sounds like some necks may be on the line in season 5…which is not to imply that Rick Grimes is set to continue his gnarly throat-chomping binge (R.I.P., Claimers.)

Lincoln was joined by his castmates Chandler Riggs, Melissa McBride, Emily Kinney and Chad Coleman, along with executive producer Gale Anne Hurd as the group infiltrated the EW Radio studio to discus their latest conquest of Comic-Con, and you can hear the entire conversation right here and right now by clicking on the audio player icon below. (The rest of the cast — Norman Reedus, Steven Yeun, Lauren Cohan, Danai Gurira, Michael Cudlitz, as well as producers Scott M. Gimple and Denise Huth — stopped by as well, and you can listen to that visit right here.) READ FULL STORY

'The Walking Dead' cast and producers promise that 'every single thing in the first episode is a spoiler'

The-Walking-Dead-Season-5-trailer.jpg

Fans have been weighing in with their thoughts about the new Walking Dead season 5 trailer that debuted at Comic-Con in San Diego, but what about the cast and producers themselves? What do they have to say about it? After the awesome experience of watching them watch it on a monitor while backstage at their panel, I asked Team Walking Dead their thoughts later when they stopped by the Entertainment Weekly Radio (SiriusXM, channel 105) studio at the convention, and now you can hear the entire conversation by clicking on the audio player icon below.

Joining us were none other than cast members Norman Reedus, Steven Yeun, Lauren Cohan, Danai Gurira, and Michael Cudlitz, along with executive producer Scott M. Gimple and co-executive producer Denise Huth. So what do they make of the clip, in which, according to Cudlitz, “it certainly looks like we’re heading to DC” to find a cure for the zombie outbreak? It seems the cast has been getting a kick listening to fans hypothesize as to what it all means. “The theories are fantastic,” says Gurira. READ FULL STORY

'The Walking Dead' cast compares upcoming season to 'Three's Company'

SDCC-VIDEO-WALKING-DEAD-02.jpg

The Walking Dead might seem like a serious show, but it’s getting a sitcom makeover next season: “It has like a Martin slash Three’s Company feel,” star Danai Gurira deadpanned to EW at Comic-Con.

As you can probably guess, The Walking Dead is most likely not getting a laugh track anytime soon, but the cast was happy to elaborate on some rumors that the show would become more light-hearted when they stopped by the EW Hideout. Lauren Cohan, Norman Reedus, Michael Cudlitz, Steven Yeun, and Gurira also joked about potential Comic-Con disguises and more unlikely Walking Dead scenarios—like picnics.

Watch the recently released season-five trailer for yourself, then watch their interview to compare notes. Moral of the story: Don’t trust anything the cast says.

'The Walking Dead' season 5 trailer is here

THE-WALKING-DEAD.jpg

AMC has released the trailer for The Walking Dead‘s fifth season—and it looks like it’ll be action-packed.

The three-minute-plus trailer shows Rick Grimes and his team dealing with the villainous Terminus gang by apparently haggling a mission. The groups appear to force a trip to Washington, D.C., where they’ll try to cure the zombie plague. “From the opening tease in the premiere onward, season 5 is without question the most ambitious and satisfying season this amazing team has ever crafted,” said Charlie Collier, AMC president. “In the zombie apocalypse, event television is alive and well, and I am proud to acknowledge that this uniquely talented writing staff, production team, and cast have once again raised the bar (and the crossbow).”

AMC also announced a season 5 premiere date: Sunday, Oct. 12 at 9 p.m. Below, check out the season 5 promo that just debuted at TWD‘s Comic-Con panel: READ FULL STORY

Norman Reedus of 'The Walking Dead' talks about disguising himself as the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man

Norman Reedus is a Comic-Con favorite. But he loves the convention as much as the convention loves him. In fact, The Walking Dead star has been known to do some celebrity stalking himself. “I took a selfie with Anthony Bourdain and the lead dude from Yo Gabba Gabba!,” says Reedus of one of his favorite Comic-Con encounters. “I was like, this is the best moment ever!” But wait, did Bourdain and “lead dude from Yo Gabba Gabba!” (also known as DJ Lance Rock) even know who Reedus was? “The Yo Gabba Gabba! guy, he knew. Anthony Bourdain kind of looked at me like, what the hell are you doing right now? But I’m a huge fan of Anthony Bourdain. If I didn’t have this job as Daryl Dixon, I would definitely want his job.”

Of course, there are scores upon scores of fans who would kill to get up close and personal with Reedus. But that can be a bit of a problem for when the star wants to go walk the convention floor. To try to an evade prying eyes, Reedus has employed a variety of costumes over the years so he can mingle undetected with even the most hardcore fans. He shared one such story about going incognito with a Walking Dead castmate. READ FULL STORY

See Carol, Judith, and Rick of 'The Walking Dead' in new season 5 images

Last week we brought you an exclusive image from season 5 of The Walking Dead that likely sent shivers up the spines of Daryl Dixon fans, as the resident badass appeared gagged and bound. Now we have some more exclusive episodic images to tide you over.

In the first, we see Melissa McBride’s Carol holding an adorable baby Judith. Sooooo…good news, they’re still alive! When the season starts, that is. After that, who knows? But at least Carol is not telling Judith to “look at the flowers,” because we all know how that ends. Also, Judith does not appear to be a zombie. So that’s a positive…although she does appear to be rocking something of a devilock hairstyle. (Click on the Full Size magnifying glass tab to see a bigger high-res version of the photo.)

But wait, we’re not done. Now, let’s move onto page 2 for a look at what Rick Grimes is up to.

New 'Walking Dead' season 5 art features cast in handcuffs

AMC has released new The Walking Dead art for season five (which premieres in October) just in time for the show’s Comic-Con panel this Friday afternoon in San Diego. In it, we see Rick, Carl, Michonne, Daryl, Glenn, Maggie, and Abraham ready to do battle. Just a few problems: First off, they are still in that damn train car. And secondly, they all appear to be handcuffed, which severely limits their collective ass-kicking capabilities. (To see the full image, just click on the magnifying glass icon on the picture above.)
