First of all, yes. Tyrese, one of the best characters from the comic books, has been cast, and yes, the casting is fucking awesome. Chad Coleman, otherwise known as Cutty from “The Wire,” will soon be joining the group. When and how, we don’t know. But it’s terrific casting.
There is also some first footage. I will warn you of two things: It’s in Spanish, and there’s theoretically a large spoiler-ish moment in the footage. But still, it’s cool if you don’t mind those two things. The only thing that remains to be seen is whether or not the show will actually have (gasp!) two black males on the same show for more than two episodes. I don’t know - we’ve cleared out a few cast members recently, so maybe there’s room. We’ll see whether or not “The Walking Dead” can finally deal with its race issues intelligently.
NO SPOILERS. Those who ignore this rule will be dealt with swiftly and mercilessly. Or, you know, I’ll just delete your comment.
