New Video: Writing and Acting THE WALKING DEAD


A few months ago we brought the writers and actors behind THE WALKING DEAD to the Writers Guild Theater, along with Nerdist extraordinaire Chris Hardwick as host. I wish everyone reading this could have been there with us, because it was an amazing night.

And so here it is: Hardwick interviews showrunner Scott Gimple; Robert Kirkman, who created the original comic and wrote several episodes of the show; and Lauren Cohan and Steven Yeun, who play Maggie and Glenn on the show.

I won’t bore you with a lot of chatter. But watch for the Ray Romano impressions. They’re not exactly dead-on. But they’re hilarious.
