UPDATE: F/X House Named / Jonny Lee Miller Frontrunner for Rick in The Walking Dead

Now that we all know that Jon Bernthal will be playing Shane, partner of the main character, Rick Grimes, in Frank Darabont’s adaptation of The Walking Dead for AMC, speculation has been at a fever pitch over who will play Grimes himself. Personally I would have liked to see AJ Bowen tackle the job, but apparently the powers-that-be are looking over another young talent.

According to Bloody Disgusting actor Jonny Lee Miller (Hackers, Dracula 2000, “Eli Stone”) in the main man in talks to lead our band of heroes through the land of the dead.

The Walking Dead is based on Robert Kirkman’s popular comic series. It chronicles the months and years following a zombie apocalypse. Frank Darabont is the project’s writer, director, and exec producer with Anne Hurd and David Alpert also exec producing.

Look for more very soon, and if you haven’t begun reading this tale yet, click below, order, and get started like yesterday. You’ll be thanking us later.

**UPDATE**
Shock Till You Drop has learned that KNB Effects will be handling all that gloriously dead tissue for the show.

You're such an inspiration for the ways that I will never, ever choose to be.

    Johnny Lee Miller? He’s not who I’d want for Rick. Not at all.

    Jake Weber (he’s he dude from the Dawn remake, right?) would be perfect as Rick.

      Spaceshark you’re a genius! Weber for sure!

      Good show, Shark. But in all honesty, they could do a lot worse than Miller, like, dare I say, Sam Worthington?
