'Walking Dead' Actress Laurie Holden Nabs Lead in 'Dumb and Dumber To'
Moviefone Blog - over 3 years
"Walking Dead" actress Laurie Holden is used to working with characters who want to eat brains, but now she'll be working with characters who could use them. Holden, best known for her role as Andrea on AMC's "The Walking Dead," has landed a lead part in "Dumb and Dumber To." She will play Adele Pichlow, described by Deadline as "the well to do wife of a doctor who is up to no good and who plans to use Harry and Lloyd to cover her tracks." This is Holden's first high-profile role following her exit from "The Walking Dead" earlier this year. The actress previously worked with "Dumb and Dumber" star Jim Carrey in 2001's "The Majestic." Production has already kicked off on the follow-up to the 1994 comedy, set to take place (and be released) 20 years after the original. Jeff Daniels and a toothless Carrey will reprise their roles.

Michonne's New Mission
Huffington Post - over 3 years
When "The Walking Dead" returns, Michonne will be on a mission. In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, comic co-creator and series executive producer Robert Kirkman said Andrea's (Laurie Holden) death will still be felt by the characters in Season 4, Michonne (Danai Gurira) in particular. "As we meet Michonne coming back this season, she's on a mission to hunt down the Governor. It's something she's very obsessed with. It's big part of her character this season," Kirkman said. "She did lose Andrea and she lost her because of the Governor. She's not willing to let that guy go or be out there. It's something that may possibly be to her detriment, the fact that she's so dedicated to finding this person. That's something that very much informs her character this season." Season 3 of "The Walking Dead" ended with Andrea's death, the Governor (David Morrissey) attacking the prison and escaping from Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln) and co. After the attack, Rick took in th ...

'The Walking Dead' Beefs Up Cast For Season 4
Huffington Post - almost 4 years
Season 4 of "The Walking Dead" will have a few more (living) bodies on the ground when the AMC show returns in October. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Chad Coleman (Tyreese), Sonequa Martin-Green (Sasha) and Emily Kinney (Beth) have been promoted to series regular status beginning next year, alongside David Morrissey as the nefarious Governor. The world of "The Walking Dead" needs a little repopulation after the bloody third season, which saw us lose Sarah Wayne Callies (Lori), IronE Singleton (T-Dog), Michael Rooker (Merle), Dallas Roberts (Milton) and -- most shockingly -- Laurie Holden (Andrea) in the finale. Additionally, Melissa Ponzio (Karen) will reappear in Season 4 as a recurring guest star, the sole survivor of the Governor's brutal attack on his own army in Woodbury. Coleman and Martin-Green play siblings who were an integral part of Rick's (Andrew Lincoln) fight against the Governor. Kinney has recurred since Season 2 as the youngest daughter of Hershe ...

In the penultimate episode of "The Walking Dead" Season 3, "The Sorrowful Life," Rick and the group must grapple with a tough decision: to get a truce with the Governor, the group must make a huge sacrifice. As far as Rick knows, the Governor still wants Michonne ... but that all may change. Producers have promised some big moments before the end of the season and at least one death ... but there's one character who's safe. "I don't think anybody is safe on this show, to be honest," Laurie Holden, Andrea on "The Walking Dead," told TV Guide. "The only person who's really safe is Carl [Chandler Riggs]. I know that people don't want to hear that, but it's true. There's going to be more major deaths before the end of the season and no one is safe." Take a look at some exclusive photos from "The Sorrorowful Life" below. There's a walker, a tender moment and a distressed Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln).

"Walking Dead" executive producer Greg Nicotero said in January, "We've established a certain scenario on our show where nobody is safe -- and certainly in the back-half of our season, it doesn't get easy for anybody ... We have the whole Woodbury community with the Governor (David Morrissey) and our principal cast. We'll probably end our season minus a cast member or two." So far, this season has seen the demise of two characters who have been with the show from the start: Lori Grimes and T-Dog. Could Andrea be the latest death?

'Walking Dead' Star: My Fans Are Keeping Me Alive
Huffington Post - almost 4 years
LOS ANGELES -- From week to week fans simply never know which characters will survive the relentless zombie attacks on AMC's hit series "The Walking Dead." That unpredictability keeps viewers on the edge of their seats and the shows' stars in a constant state of alertness. "You see series and they last a long time and sometimes the writing gets lazy or the acting gets lazy. Because we're in a zombie apocalypse and anyone can go at any time, it sort of keeps us fresh and on our toes," Norman Reedus told The Associated Press Friday. Fans lined up around the block to watch a panel discussion with Reedus and his co-stars at Paleyfest, the annual Southern California TV celebration. Many in the crowd showed their support for Reedus' crossbow-wielding character, Daryl Dixon, with their "If Daryl dies we riot!" T-shirts. The 44-year-old actor says his vocal fan base is responsible for his character's impressive longevity in a series that seems to have no qualms in a ...

Laurie Holden understands your frustrations with Andrea on this season of "The Walking Dead." During the majority of Season 3, Andrea has been shacked up with the Governor of Woodbury, split from Rick (Andrew Lincoln) and co. since the Season 2 finale. Fans have been vocal about their displeasure with some of Andrea's actions including ... [SPOILER ALERT] ... her inability to kill the Governor in "I Ain't a Judas." "I completely understand it," Holden wrote to The Huffington Post in an email interview.

Denette Wilford: Now What, 'The Walking Dead'?
Huffington Post - about 4 years
*WARNING: A FEW SPOILERS AHEAD* Holy. Crap. The last "The Walking Dead" episode didn't exactly begin how I wanted it to, but the ending was exactly how its winter finale should've been. I mean, honestly. Where to begin?! First off, I've never read -- nor do I plan to read -- the comic books the series is based on. I like going into a show not knowing all about it and a show like "The Walking Dead" needs to be watched spoiler-free. From behind a couch cushion. On the edge of our seats. "Made to Suffer" was aptly named, whether it pertained to the intriguing new group of survivors -- led by apparent comic book favourite Tyreese (Chad Coleman) (yeah, yeah, I don't like spoilers but there are some casting tidbits I can't avoid) -- locked up in their safer, albeit barred, surroundings; the hurt look on Michonne's (Danai Gurira) face as she and Andrea (Laurie Holden) came face-to-face, sword to gun; the one-eyed Governor (David Morrissey) sobbing over his now-dead zombie da ...

Denette Wilford: Fall TV 2012: 10 Shows You Can't Miss
Huffington Post - over 4 years
Hi there, my name is Denette Wilford and I like fluffy TV. No, not trashy, guilty pleasure stuff (OK, well, not always), and not super-important, super-serious fare that gives me a knot in my stomach for an entire hour for its entire season. Rather, I like my shows to be a fun and light escape, occasionally suspenseful, often action-packed but, most importantly, entertaining. Oh, and a heads-up, I also tend to gravitate towards shows that have me reaching for Kleenex during its heart-wrenching moments (ahem, "Friday Night Lights," "Parenthood"). While I've been a TV critic for a few years now and I have watched just about every show at least once, my taste in TV hasn't changed. I'm still an avid viewer, loyal to the major networks. So if you're like me, just an average person who loves TV, then you might want to check out what shows I'll be watching this season.
