In what is clearly the most interesting subplot to come out of a season and a half of AMC’s Fear the Walking Dead, Frank Dillane — who plays Junkie Johnny Depp in the series — has been arrested for battery.
Details are scarce, but Dillane was attempting to get access to the CBS lot without the proper credentials. Security refused to let him in, despite cries of, “DO YOU KNOW WHO I AM? I’M THAT GUY FROM THAT THING?” and “LET ME IN! MY DAD WAS IN GAME OF THRONES!” (probably)
Dillane then struck the security guard. He was detained until police arrived and arrested him.
No one knows why Dillane was trying to access CBS studios, though we can assume it was a crazed attempt to walk on to a different, better series with more coherent storylines.
Fear the Walking Dead just aired its midseason finale, which saw Dillane’s character join a cult and leave his family to live among the zombies. (That’s not a joke. That’s actually what happened. Spoilers.)
Dad is super disappointed.
