walking dead creator wants charlie sheen for season 2

Back in December, there was some brief talk about Charlie Sheen making an appearance in season 2 of The Walking Dead, but then AMC quickly denied it.

Now, it looks like Charlie may still walk with the dead if show creator Robert Kirkman has anything to say about it.

Here's Kirkman on his desire for Sheen to join his show:

"Charlie call us, we we will totally make that happen. We'll do whatever you want."

"We'll recast YOU as Rick [lead character]. Andrew Lincoln will find something else to do."

"He can direct an episode."

"Actually [Sheen] could play a car for all I care. He's awesome."

Wow! Looks like they really want you, Charlie. Might want to give it some thought…it's not like you've got any other major commitments at the moment.

Would U like to see Charlie Sheen get involved with AMC's The Walking Dead?

Frank Darabont FIRES ENTIRE Writing Staff Of The Walking Dead!

We don't know about this…it sounds like a pretty terrible idea!

Sources close the production of the new smash series The Walking Dead have revealed that executive producer Frank Darabont has fired the show's ENTIRE writing staff, and plans to keep it that way for the 13-episode second season - by relying on freelancers!

WTF?!

Out of the six first season episodes, two were written solely by Darabont, while he co-wrote the other other four - which were written by original writer of the comics Robert Kirkman, Glen Mazzara, and two non-staff writers.

Well yeah, but next season is going to be double that! Doesn't he think that he should have people on-staff to help get everything off of the ground?!

And even if not, the series has been such a huge hit! Why mess with that when it's still so new??

We just have a bad feeling that this is going to really blow up in his face. Writing a film alone is one thing, but some of the best material on TV has come from a real collaborative effort!

Let's hope that Darabont knows what he's doing!

Thoughts??
