Working with Darabont for the first time
Michael Rooker revealed, via his Twitter account (where more and more news breaks are happening, it seems), “on my way to Atlanta soon to work with my new best friend Frank Darabont on The Walking Dead.”
Let the speculation fly as to who he is playing! My vote’s on Jim, the mechanic who lost his family to the undead. Rooker is fresh off of the creature feature Hypothermia.
Shooting is well underway in Atlanta on the AMC series. Confirmed cast members include: Andrew Lincoln, Jon Bernthal, Jeffrey DeMunn and Sarah Wayne Callies.
