'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.

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.

'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.

'The Walking Dead': Norman Reedus explains why Daryl Dixon never runs out of arrows

Norman-Reedus-Walking-Dead-clip.jpg

So many mysteries when it comes to AMC’s The Walking Dead. How did the zombie apocalypse begin? Why is everyone infected? Are there any safe areas left? Also, how is it that crossbow-wielding badass Daryl Dixon never manages to run out of arrows? We went straight to the source for answers and asked the man who plays Dixon, Norman Reedus, for an explanation.

“I try to recycle the arrows as much as possible,” says Reedus in the video interview below while taking a break from his Entertainment Weekly cover shoot (you can buy all three collector covers right here!). He’s got a point there as you often do see Daryl pull an arrow out of the skull of a walker he’s just put down. But still, with that few arrows at his disposal, and considering all the times he isn’t able to reuse one, it would seem he would have run out by now, right? “They go on runs and we raid places and this is Georgia so that is one of the weapons that people hunt with,” says Reedus. “So it’s not unheard of to find more arrows.” Reedus also assumes there is off-screen replenishment going on. “When you show this large of a time frame, there’s a lot of things that are sort of understood. You never see us go to the bathroom, but we do that.”

Reedus also spoke eloquently about the evolution of his character and how his on-screen brother Merle’s death has changed Daryl. As Reedus explains, with Merle gone, “Daryl has the opportunity to become the man he was never going to be.” To hear more from the man on all things Daryl Dixon, click on the video player below.

'The Walking Dead': Andrew Lincoln says Rick will be 'in a completely different place' in season 4

Andrew-Lincoln-EW-Photoshoot.jpg

There’s no doubt that Rick Grimes went a bit cuckoo for Cocoa Puffs after his wife Lori died during childbirth on The Walking Dead. Next thing you knew he was off seeing ghosts and avoiding his baby Judith as much as possible. But while Rick was not winning any father of the year awards last season, the man who plays him, Andrew Lincoln, says that parenting will come back into focus in season 4 — especially after son Carl went and killed a surrendering Woodbury teen named Jody in the season finale. “Certainly after the death of Lori, I think that a lot was brought into question, certainly in that last episode,” Lincoln said in the video interview below while taking a break from posing for the new cover of Entertainment Weekly. “And Andrea helped that sort of narrow his focus much more on his son, who is obviously in a very, very disturbed state toward the end of last season. And I think he has to take responsibility for that.”

But while Rick may strive to be a better father in season 4, those damn zombies and other nutjobs like the Governor keep seeming to get in the way. “You find him in a completely different place,” says Lincoln of Rick’s role. “And I do think that the struggle within him is still there, which is whether or not he should be a leader at the expense of being a father figure.” READ FULL STORY

Comic-Con: What's lunch break like on the 'Walking Dead' set? -- VIDEO

Andrew Lincoln told EW’s Anthony Breznican at Comic-Con that Rick is “in a completely new place” when The Walking Dead season 4 begins in October.

“He’s a new Rick,” the actor said.

The handsome was on display Thursday afternoon at Entertainment Weekly’s Brave New Warriors Comic-Con panel, moderated by Lynette Rice.

Twice.

Okay, so it might have been tongue in cheek. Still, these guys know how to work a room, even if they do get paid to brood, as Guintoli said.

'The Walking Dead': Glenn and Maggie lock lips in exclusive super-hot photo and GIF

They had some tough times in season 3 of The Walking Dead, what with her being forced to strip down by the Governor and him not being able to get over it. But Maggie and Glenn finally worked it out and even got engaged before all was said and done. How are things between the pair when things pick up in season 4? Pretty damn fine, it seems. “It’s in a really safe place,” says the woman who plays Maggie, Lauren Cohan, of the relationship. Steven Yeun, a.k.a. Glenn, agrees. “They’re in a good groove, living as close to what normal life should be,” says Yeun. “Whatever you can call that in this world.”

In fact, Cohan and Yeun got into the mood, so to speak, during a recent Entertainment Weekly photo shoot to show us just how great things are. They are lip-smacking, face-sucking, full-body-embracing great! Click on the “Full Size Image” button above to check out the rest of the smooch in all its full-sized glory.
