InsideTV Podcast: Rupert from 'Survivor' does not regret sending himself to Redemption Island

Rupert Boneham came into Survivor: Blood vs. Water predicting a one-two finish for him and his wife Laura. He got first, alright. Unfortunately for him, it ended up being first one out. Rupert called into Entertainment Weekly Radio (SiriusXM, channel 105) to talk with Jessica Shaw and me all about his short stint on the island, and we now present that interview for you here on the InsideTV Podcast. Does he regret swapping places with wife Laura and sending himself to Redemption Island? How was his time there with non-Rupert fan Candice? Are other Survivors jealous of his popularity with fans? And how would he have coexisted with Colton? We get into all that and more, and you can hear it all by clicking on the audio player icon below.

But Rupert’s not the only Survivor we have on tap this week: RC Saint-Armour also stopped by the studio to talk with former Survivor champ Jenna Morasca and me about what it was like for her and her dad to be cut from the game and sent home from location just two days before filming began due to his high blood pressure. RC reveals all the juicy behind-the-scenes intel, including who her pre-game alliance mates were, and her desperate attempt to stay in the game even after her father was ruled out. It’s a must listen for any Survivor fan.

And we also we turn our attention from the living to the dead. Or undead, rather. The Walking Dead exec producer Greg Nicotero called in to give some teases on season 4 of the zombie drama. Greg — who directed the season premiere episode airing on Oct. 13 — tells us that the zombies will be scarier then ever before this year. He clues us in as to what else to expect in season 4 while also telling us all about the new Walking Dead haunted maze happening at Universal Studios’ Halloween Horror Nights. READ FULL STORY

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

'Walking Dead's' governor cast in new AMC project

David Morrissey — aka the Governor on The Walking Dead — has been cast in a new drama pilot for AMC, which may fuel speculation that his character will finally meet his maker in season four.

But don’t despair, Dead-heads: The cable network insists that Morrissey will do double duty on the zombie drama and Line of Sight, which will focus on a National Transportation Safety Board investigator (Morrissey) who survives a mysterious plane crash. AMC told Deadline that both  are produced in Atlanta, which will make it possible for the actor to work two jobs. Line Of Sight is from Blake Masters (2 Guns) and director Jonathan Demme.

Morrissey appeared alongside other cast members at Dead’s Comic-Con panel last month in San Diego. His character wasn’t featured in the trailer, though. Hmm…

The fourth season of The Walking Dead begins on Oct. 13.

'Walking Dead' sneak peek: Michonne fights zombies

AMC just debuted a sneak peek of the fourth season of The Walking Dead, the outrageously popular zombie-apocalypse show which returns on October 13. The short video shows Michonne astride her new horse, Flame, fighting off a couple of of undead attacks using the power of friendship. Just kidding! Carl and Maggie are there, too. The video quality isn’t good. But hey, it could be worse; it could be Low Winter Sun. Watch the video: READ FULL STORY

'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

'Walking Dead' alum Dallas Roberts talks new 'Unforgettable' role (and his hilarious 'Law & Order' guest history)

Fans of CBS’ resurrected cop show Unforgettable, which returns tonight at 9 p.m. ET for a second season, will notice a few changes: Det. Carrie Wells (Poppy Montgomery), her perfect memory, and her ex-boyfriend/current partner Al Burns (Nip/Tuck‘s Dylan Walsh) are being poached by the Major Crimes Section of the NYPD. (Acerbic medical examiner Joanne Webster, played by Jane Curtin, also makes the move, at Carrie’s insistence.) Their new technologically superior office will be in Manhattan, not Queens, and their boss is now the ambitious Eliot Delson, played by new series regular Dallas Roberts, best known as The Walking Dead‘s Milton and The Good Wife‘s Owen, and Rubicon‘s Miles Fiedler.

Roberts stopped by EW to chat about his new role and, since he’s joining a New York-set procedural, get quizzed on his five different guest appearances across the Law & Order franchise. He also shares the story of the fan first that happened to him on the walk to our office, along with his memory of writing a fan letter to Paul Reubens (a.k.a. Pee-wee Herman) when he was a teen and Reubens phoning him.

Game-of-Thrones-SDCC-clip.jpg

Entertainment Weekly Radio (SiriusXM channel 105) made the trek to Comic-Con last week where we spoke to all the biggest casts — in terms of both sheer numbers of cast members and popularity — in television.

Listen in as Michelle Fairley and Richard Madden talk about what it was like to be killed off on Game Of Thrones. Geroge R.R.

'The Walking Dead': Chandler Riggs on what's in store for Carl in season 4

Chandler-Riggs-Walking-Dead-clip.jpg

Season 3 of The Walking Dead was a bit of a rough road for Carl Grimes, what with him having to watch his mother die and then put a bullet in her brain so she did not come back as a zombie. Oh, and then he had to sit there while his dad went off the proverbial deep end. Will things be any better when AMC’s zombie drama picks up again for season 4 on Oct. 13? And where does the relationship between Papa Grimes and son stand?

“When Lori died the group was a lot smaller,” says Chandler Riggs (who plays Carl) in the video interview below, which was taken during Riggs’ Entertainment Weekly cover shoot (you can buy all three collector covers right here!). “So at the end of the season about 50 people [from Woodbury] got off that bus. And so now that there’s 50 more people in the group, Rick and Carl might have some more time to get closer together. Or not.” Way to be cagey!

To see exclusive footage from EW’s Walking Dead cover shoot and to hear Riggs talk more about where things stand for Carl (as well as what it’s like to go hang out with zombies every day on set), just click on the video player below. Also make sure to watch our exclusive Facebook video with Norman Reedus. And for additional intel on season 4 of The Walking Dead (which begins Oct. 13), check out the new issue of Entertainment Weekly, on stands now. READ FULL STORY
