Sarah Wayne Callies talks to the HuffPo and Vulture about last Sunday’s shocking ep of The Walking Dead, so spoiler alert if you’re behind in viewing.  Same goes for IronE Singleton, both before and after the epsiode aired.

David Morrissey talks to GQ about his role as the Governor, repopulating the world, and losing his zombie-killing virginity.

Fun fact: Danai Gurira not only stars in The Walking Dead, she is also an Obie Award-winning writer.

Jon Hamm leaves ICM Partners after his agent is fired amid palace intrigue.

Christina Hendricks and January Jones toured the Cemetery of the Stars.

BTW, it wasn’t just the ladies at the Peace Over Violence event linked here last Friday: Christina Hendricks, Elisabeth Moss, January Jones, Rich Sommer and Christopher Stanley were all there to fete awardees including Mad Men showrunner Matt Weiner.

Vincent Kartheiser talks to Vulture about getting face-punched, onscreen and off.

Kiernan Shipka, branching out from fashion, makes gluten-free waffles.

Sam Page is joining ABC’s Last Resort.

Vulture (among others) is stumped by a TV trend that has shown up on TWD.

PopMatters asks whether TWD is any good, with a potential spoiler from the comic series (although the show takes liberties).

MythBusters is doing a Breaking Bad-themed episode, with BB showrunner Vince Gilligan and Aaron Paul.  They will not cook up meth.

AMC shares soared on the success of its original programming and the favorable settlement of its lawsuit with Dish TV.

  1. Anson Mount appeared as a Seal in “Seal Team 6 . . ” shown on Nat Geo channel (didn’t see this posted on another thread)

  2. I cannot wait for the BB Mythbusters. Giant magnets and exploding turtles, here we come!

  3. probably old news, but I found both of these Beth Behrs and Michael Gladis clips to be great fun:

    The Argument with Beth Behrs & Michael Gladis


  4. Recent art news brought to mind Burt Cooper’s Rothko. I hope he (or his heirs) managed to hold onto it.

    The artist’s 1954 canvas, “No. 1 (Royal Red & Blue),” just fetched $75 million at Sotheby’s this week, in an historic auction.
