15 Things You Didn't Know About The Walking Dead

I am not sure about the WALKING dead, but the real dead vote democrat. That is something we all know.

“You shoot me again, you best make sure I’m dead.”

Great stuff. Thanks, virgil!

The “fact” that humans eat at one table and walkers at another is because paid actors don’t eat with extras.

Andrea isn’t a survivor anymore. Little Miss Civil rights attorney tried to make peace and got dead.

Here in Hollywood, they never do. Based on my experience, sometimes the catering trucks for extras have better menu choices than for the cast.

She had it comin.

The only thing that would have made it better is if she and Lori had killed each other.

I think the last Zombie movie I saw was “The Emperor Jones”. That was many years ago.

I thought about going to try out as a prison yard extra for a movie they made here in Michigan a while back. I think it was a Hillary Duff flick.

Non-SAG extras are always the best. The pay is more than they pay you at the office and they feed you. Plus, you keep your entire pay.

Hilary Swank BTW not Duff. Sam Rockwell co-starred.

I think the movie was Conviction

I know a girl who went to one of those movie productions in her home town. She is a real beauty and quite charismatic too.

They actually decided to use her in a speaking role. She went through makeup and the whole ball of wax.

Her family told everyone about it and when the movie came out, they had cut the entire scene she was in. She didn’t even get to be an extra.

Tyreese: “I must be the first brother in history to break into prison.”

Axel: “Makes me the first white boy that didn’t want to break out.”

I was starting to like Axel when they ended him mid sentence.

They normally, bring in 3 catering trucks. One for extras, crew then cast. This is like saying the Dallas Cowboys 53 eats with the practice squad scrubs, which doesn’t happen. Of course, there are instances where the star doesn’t give a rip. I worked on an Amy Adams movie a year ago and she just was found at the extras trucks chowing down on a sandwich at 1 in the morning yakking it up with the extras.

I thought it would be a pecking order thing.

I remember an observation Charlton Heston made while filming Planet of the Apes, which was filmed during the peak of the civil rights era, and contained many racial themes in the film. He noticed that no matter what race the actor was, when the ape characters were off camera in their makeup and ape suits, gorillas ate and socialized with other gorillas, the orangutans with orangutans, and chimpanzees with other chimps. Seeing that, he wondered if race is something we could ever get past.

Axel was one of the interesting characters until he got blasted in an instant.

The real quandary would be if method acting is something we can get past. The various ape types were written to not like each other very much, and method people are famous for staying in character at all times. It just takes a few to make it a “rule” since no actor wants to throw another actor off their game, even if they think their game is dumb.

Nitpick/pet-peeve: I despise info graphics that don’t even approximate proportionality. 86 is not about twice 22, and 5000 is not about ten times bigger than 1.

I was watching “Star Trek” last night and I swear I hear Capt. Kirk say “one to the fourth power” which is still one.

Heh. Recall the first Doctor Who wisely pontificating “hmmm...if x equals gamma...”
Alas, that was the most sophisticated math ever expressed on the series spanning decades.

I have a friend who had a similar experience. She played a hooker in “Heartbreak Ridge.” Not a huge part but of course she was very happy to get the part. She said Eastwood was incredibly nice. None of her scene made it to the final cut...

The latest zombie movie I got to see was “Warm Bodies”. Watched it with the family.

I recommend it! Light-hearted comedy in the Zombie Apocalypse! It even had Malkovich in a sympathetic role (for him, anyways)...

I made an error in my post. The movie wasn’t being made in her home town but in the town she was living. The embarrassing thing is, her home town paper had a story about her being in the movie on their front page. They interviewed her and everything.

Dittoes on Andrea. Lawyer thought she could talk her way out of a walker bite, when she wasn’t doing the villains.

What did that good ol’ boy call her? “College-educated kooz”...

Good riddance, Andrea...

There was one episode where they returned to a town where the black guy was still alive, I forget his name. At the end, Michonne walked out of a store carrying some weapons and a new crossbow with arrows was one of them.........
