A few more casting bites

Although we’ve already reported that Michael Rooker and Norman Reedus have joined the cast of The Walking Dead, we now know who they are playing.

AMC tells us they’ll be brothers Merle Dixon (Rooker) and Daryl Dixon (Reedus), one a redneck ex-con and the other equally as dangerous. The network also revealed/confirmed additional new cast members of including Andrew Rothenberg (Jim), Juan Pareja (Morales), Iron E. Singleton (T-Dog), Jeryl Prescott Sales (Jacqui), Melissa McBride (Carol) and Adam Minarovich (Ed) – all members of the “survivor’s camp.”

Based on the comic book series written by Robert Kirkman and published by Image Comics, AMC’s The Walking Dead is currently in production in Atlanta, GA, and is scheduled to premiere this October during AMC Fearfest, the network’s annual blockbuster marathon of thriller and horror films.
