     June 15, 2010

AMC has released the first official image from their upcoming zombie show The Walking Dead.  The image features actor Andrew Lincoln as protagonist Rick Grimes.  The series is based of the comics by Robert Kirkman.  Said Kirkman of Lincoln playing the role:

Writing this book for the past seven years I’ve gotten very close to the character of Rick.  Andrew Lincoln embodies every aspect of the character that fans know and love.  After seeing this photo I don’t think that there will be a doubt in anyone’s mind that he’s perfect for the role.
