Fans will meet the newest character on AMC’s “The Walking Dead” Sunday when Season 5 introduces Gabriel Stokes, a reverend Rick and the group encounter.
Gabriel is a well-known character from Robert Kirkman’s comic book. Unfortunately Gabriel and Rick are at two very different ends of the spectrum in terms of the zombie apocalypse. Rick has come to terms with doing everything it takes to stay alive. Gabriel is a reverend who still hasn’t realized it takes brutality to survive. The two will likely have the same trust issues on TV that they do in the comic book.
Gilliam is the third alum of “The Wire” to join the cast of “The Walking Dead.” Lawrence Gilliard Jr. (Bob Stookey) and Chad Coleman (Tyreese”) also starred on HBO’s Baltimore-based series. Gilliam is a gifted actor who’s also made memorable appearances on “Homeland,” “The Good Wife” and “Oz.” If the Season 4 finale of “The Wire” was any indication (Gilliam’s best performance to date), expect him to bring emotional depth to the character of Gabriel.
Here’s a preview of this weeks episode of The Walking Dead titled “Strangers”

LOS ANGELES, October 16, 2014 – The Romero family’s directorial legacy continues with a son following in his father’s footsteps. G. Cameron Romero (STAUNTON HILL), son of George A. Romero (NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD) announced today that he has launched his campaign on Indiegogo, for ORIGINS, the genesis story of the first Romero zombie in his father’s iconic masterpiece NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD, with a goal of $150,000 for pre-production costs.
Fans can contribute to the ORIGINS campaign by visiting helptelltheorigin.com.
“I feel carrying on my dad’s legacy is something that I not only want to do, but it’s something I HAVE to do,” says Cameron Romero, Director of ORIGINS. “…because I, like all my dad’s fans, was raised on his creation.” Set in the turbulent late sixties, the film tells the story of a brilliant scientist – Dr. Alan Cartwright – who strikes a deal with the military that will give him all the resources he needs to finalize his work in exchange for what he later learns is a price all mankind will have to pay.
Producer Darrin Reed (“Lila and Eve”) said, “The origin story deserves to be told by someone who passionately loves and has a unique insight into the original movie and nobody has that more than George’s own son.”
Through perks for contributing to the campaign, legions of fans will have the unique opportunity to participate in the making of the film by being part of a ‘brain trust’ that will be polled to help answer questions during the pre-production of the film. Other perks include items such as signed ‘legs’ and ‘arms’, the ability to visit the set, and perhaps most enticing of all – being in the film as a zombie and killed on camera.
Bloody Disgusting, a well-recognized name in horror news is featuring ORIGINS through its partnership with Indiegogo. This historical relationship marks the first time that a horror site has partnered with a crowdfunding platform. Continue reading “Cameron Romero’s “Origins”” »

Alexandra Breckenridge (American Horror Story) has landed a recurring role on Season 5 of AMC’s The Walking Dead. She has an option to become a regular on the zombie drama, which shattered another ratings record with its fifth-season premiere Sunday. As usual, details about the character are being kept under wraps. On the breakdown, her character is listed as Samantha, an attractive, strong, smart, charming and articulate woman who also has a vulnerable side.
Last weeks American Horror Story had high ratings after the premier of “Freakshow”. In Canada though, not everybody found the killer clown amusing, per EW. Despite centuries of mirth-making, clowns continue to be seen by many as fearsome figures, a stereotype that certainly isn’t refuted by this season of American Horror Story and the homicidal hijinks of deranged Twisty the Clown (John Carroll Lynch).
One group that takes issue with this fearful portrayal of clowns is Clowns America International, a national organization for professional clowns, and the group’s president complains that this latest attempt to vilify the lovable clown has gone too far. “Hollywood makes money sensationalizing the norm,” Clowns American International president Wayne Kohlberger tells The Hollywood Reporter. “They can take any situation no matter how good or pure and turn it into a nightmare.”
Not suprisingly, Kohlberger says his group does not support the killer-clown storyline in American Horror Story: Freak Show: “We do not support in any way, shape or form any medium that sensationalizes or adds to coulrophobia. or ‘clown fear,’ ” he says.
Meanwhile, AHSco-creator Ryan Murphy reveals that Twisty’s origins and murderous motivation will be revealed in the season’s upcoming fourth episode. “There’s a big story that explains the clown and what he’s doing that’s based on an urban myth we uncovered,” he says. “Our take is very unusual.”
Murphy’s explanation, however, does little to address the concerns of Kohlberger, whose professional clown name is “Clyde D. Scope.” In fact, Kohlberger says that Hollywood’s continual depiction of clowns as deranged lunatics and maniacal murderers just increases fear of clowns. “Clowns to killers,” he says. “I choose not to play into any of it. The more attention we give it just gives it more fuel.”
